There’s something really magical about these glistening bits. Adding color and texture to various spaces around the house, add a regal vibe with any of these handmade additions. Check out these 12 DIY mosaic projects for your home below and get your hands dirty with creativity this weekend. Start heating up your glue guns (or getting familiar with some mod podge) because you’re definitely going to need them ready to go.
Running With Sisters beings our journey through the broken glass with this gorgeous side table. These designs are perfect for outdoor areas or covered porches and patios. They really evoke a sense of artistry but also an outdoor spirit.
2. Keepsake Boxes
These keepsake boxes can be made with broken bits of, well, anything really. Perfect as a DIY gift or to help organize the craft room, think about your personal style when creating them. The tutorial can be found over at Instructables.
And then there’s this “sea glass” tray that we’re swooning for. If you need some accessories to spruce up the pool bar this is your ticket. You can also create something similar with a bout of pennies! Check out the process on YouTube.
4. Stepping Stones
Mosaic anything looks great outside, and that’s why we’ve found so many great DIYs that include pieces that you can utilize in the yard. And that’s where these stepstones from DIY Cozy Home come in. You can create your very own “mosaic” stones with paint, beads, or any other broken bits that entice you.
5. Garden Rocks
Moving on from stepping stones to garden rocks by Kenarry. This is a very similar project to its predecessor. And yes, you can even create a painted mosaic design to make it a bit more kid-friendly if you so choose.
6. Broken Heart
How pretty is this broken heart – made with broken tile? Running With Sisters will give you the inside scoop on its creation. But we love this project as a DIY gift or a decor piece for your covered patio, don’t you think?
Who knew broken CD-Roms would be so beautiful? Turn those bits into an inexpensive and easy-to-install backsplash for your kitchen. Follow along with the tutorial by hopping over to our friends at Instructables.
Picture frames can take on a mosaic form as well. Beads, buttons, glass pieces, and the like can all be utilized. We’re inspired by this design from Hometalk and urge you to get the glue fun out and start creating – with the kiddos!
9. House Numbers
How gorgeous are these house numbers from OBN. We love the unique spin on an, otherwise, mostly traditional piece of the own. Shoutout your personal style by whipping up some of these beauties over the weekend.
Yes, your firepit could be given a pop of color as well. Broken tiles or glass pieces can easily be installed. Just take a look at this gorgeous finished product we found while perusing the ideas over at 3 Peppers!
Me and My DIY went with a birdbath mosaic design that we love as well. As we mentioned before, this style is a great way to evoke a sense of eclectic and ethereal gardens spirit. Make things a bit prettier out in the yard by personalizing your pieces.
12. Planting Pots
And finally, if you visit Running with Sisters just one more time you’ll be in for a treat. Use old China, glass, CD-roms, beads or buttons to create new (and improved) designs for the most simple of objects. Even your potting plants could use a makeover. Give it a new sense of self by installed some pops of color and texture lik you see here.
