Intro: Mosaic Flower Pot

Hi!

Here is a quick and easy tutorial on how you can make this mosaic flower pot!

Step 1: Gather the Materials

Materials Needed:

  • Tiles
  • Glue for tiles
  • Ceramic Pot
  • Grout
  • Plastic cup
  • Wooden spoon to mix grout

Step 2: Stick the Tiles to the Pot

Apply glue on the tile or on the pot and stick in the desired area. I would recommend a 1/8-1/4 inch distance just because it allows the grout to more easily. Don't worry about the glue showing.

Step 3: Switch It Up!

Then, switch your pot! (I forgot to take pictures of the process with the yellow-and-blue pot so this will be shown. This is a joke.)

Step 4: Make Your Grout!

Now, pour in about 1/4 cup of grout into a plastic cup, or a bigger container and add some water. The consistency in the first picture was too dry, so I added some more water to get a more watery mixture.You want it to be goopy, not watery and not clumpy, like peanut butter but thinner so more like almond butter) You're ready!

Step 5: Apply the Grout

Get a good glob of grout on your hand (this dries your hands out so I went with gloves) and rub it into the clay pot. The third picture shows the end result; leave it to dry for around 3-5 minutes

Step 6: Rub Off the Grout

When it is dry enough, you can rub off the grout with your fingers and then with a paper towel. Please do this near a trash can!

Step 7: Voila!

Here are the finished products! Now all you have left to do is adding a plant and this makes for an excellent birthday gift. Good luck!
