Mosaic Frames & Mirrors

Ideas to get you started on your own creations.


Mosaic Heart Mirror

Above is a heart mirror I created for a giveaway that I had on my blog a while back. I had found this wooden heart plaque at a thrift store and I knew instantly it would be perfect for the One World One Heart blog event that I always participate in each winter. I had a round mirror that I had gotten from a dollar store and I just mosaicked around it with stained glass. I added the orange heart for a little more color and whimsy.

I purchased some plain white wooden frames for another project, which I never completed, so I decided to mosaic the edges. I will not be grouting these.

Simply glue on the tiles with Weldbond or some other type of adhesive that dries clear and you are done. I did place a heavy book on top of the frame to make sure they adhered well, but that is probably not necessary.

The first frame on the left, I used stained glass pieces cut to approximately 3/4" x 3/4". The second frame is a mixture of mirror and stained glass cut to 1/2" x 1" and the last two are 3/4" x 3/4" vitreous tiles.

This mirror was a thrift store find (See a before picture here). I used stained glass and mirrors that were glued on with Weldbond. Again, black grout was used with a gloss mosaic sealer.

I really like how it turned out and I look for mirrors all the time like this, put they are few and far between at the thrift store it seems.
