I love glass tiles especially for Home Decor. Since the first time I saw it I fell in love. The other day while browsing at my local Pier1 store I saw some frames that had glass mosaic tiles around the frame edges. I thought they were gorgeous the only problem was the $24.99 price tag for a small 5×7 frame. It did however inspire me to find a more economical way to make my own. Home Decor shouldn’t have to be expensive. I mean who doesn’t want home to look like something out of a HGTV magazine shoot. Even Martha Stewart would love this idea.
I took a trip to my local Home Depot store and found lots of beautiful glass tiles. A 12×12 square costs $14.99 and is enough to make several projects. (Depending on the size of your finished item). I chose to purchase a 12×12 inch square. It was already put together with small color squares glued onto a mesh background. This is idea since I wouldn’t need to use a tile saw to cut the pieces. If you use a different shape tile you may need to use a tile saw to cut.. who needs that headache. Besides high powered saws freak me out. I went to my local dollar store and was lucky enough to find a plain mirror. Bingo! I had an idea. Here is what I did. This can also work with a plain picture frame as well. You are only limited by your imagination. I’m making one with little stones next. I love to decorate my home and these easy home decor ideas are sure to be a winner. These would be great to make for use when staging a home for sale.

DIY – Home Decor – Instructions:
Step one: Clean the surface or your mirror or frame and let dry completely
Step two: Cut out your strips. I used a strip with 2 rows but you can do one row. Trim off excess mesh from edges.
Step 3: Dry fit your strips and trim off excess tiles
Step 4: Glue tile strips using E600 glue. (Please use E600 glue only in a well ventilated area). Let dry overnight
Step 5: Hang and Enjoy!
That’s it, I told you Home Decor using Mosaic Glass tiles doesn’t have to be hard or expensive. What other uses can you find for these beautiful glass tiles?
