HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!

I just wanted to share what the girls and I are making for our awesome Daddy & Husband, Brad.  I saw this is a Better Homes & Garden’s Magazine last Fall sometime and loved it.  The first picture is of the mini bird bath that will sit on the wish well in our backyard (when it’s done).  After the glue dries, we’ll spread tile grout over the tiles, wipe them clean and let it dry.  Then, we’ll seal it before putting it outside for the birds to enjoy. (Mosaic tiles and Terra Cotta saucer: Michael’s)

I also pictured the glue and title grout that I’m using (Michael’s Craft Store).  Be careful with this glue.. it’s very smelly and needs to be used in a well ventilated area.  There’s another tile adhesive at Michael’s, but the one I used is for outdoor use.

The girls wanted to keep going with the tils, so we glued more mosaic tiles onto 4×4″ and 2×2″ ceramic tiles (Menards).  Add a heavy duty magnet on the back of the small tiles using hot glue and use as fridge magnets!

I think I’ll grout over this larger tile and make it into a drink coaster.
Thanks for stopping by again and remember..
Do something creative today!
