I have a ton of mosaic/ glasses tiles. I was wondering if anyone had any better ideas other than using them for mosaics. Thank you Smiley

Hmmm. Depends how big they are and what shape. However, a few off-the-cuff ideas:

* glue to a backing and make a broach or pendant
* if they're large, wrap with wire and make a pendant
* alternatively, glue a bail to the back of each one and use to make necklace/bracelet (yes, I'm jewellery-oriented!)
* mosaic-like, but you could use them to cover/decorate a box, whether that be wooden, heavy cardboard, or plastic
* glue them to old CDs and make pretty coasters

Glue to a picture frame to make a pretty border. 
Glue together to form a wreath and put a piece of string on it to make an ornament.
Use to fill the bottom of a vase to hold dry flowers or a candle.

glue to the rim of a flower pot or even a large decorative bowl for your coffee table. 
use as mulch to cover the dirt in a flowerpot or garden
keep it in a jar and admire your stash from time to time.
