I had never done a mosaic before so i tryed it out on these glass vases from Ikea. I had some shells and glass beads and thought maybe a beach theme would be cool. So i broke up yellow and blue tiles so that one could be the ocean and one could be the beach. I also used white grout so that it would look like sand. For anyone who hasnt done this before or used grout i would not not recomened doing it with such differently shaped items like i did. It was so hard to uncover my smaller shells it took me hours :/. Bt i love how they turned out Cheesy Also i have no idea what to do with these so if any of you have any ideas i would greatly appriciate them!


Here they are together

Those are amazing!! I especially love the blue one!!
I would use them as vases still, unless the tops don't have holes anymore. They would make amazing centerpieces or bookends.
