What to do with that leftover tile..


I know I have mentioned before that I really love tile and I really mean it! There are endless amounts of gorgeous mosaics out there that need another purpose besides being slabbed on walls and floors, well at least I would like to think so.

What about using that pretty tile as wall art? I got thinking about this and thought I would try my hand at creating some artwork with penny round scraps left over from our bathroom and kitchen. Just so happens that the colors in the penny rounds coordinate perfectly with the fabric that I used for the pelmet boxes in my kitchen and family room.

This was a super easy little DIY. I had some linen fabric and an extra ikea frame on hand. After arranging the tile in a design, I plugged in the old glue gun and fastened the pieces to the fabric, mounted the fabric underneath the mat board and put it in place.

This piece of artwork is on a smaller scale, the only frame that I had was a 8x11. There will be more to come. I have tons of ideas of designs I want to create using different colors, sizes and textures. Looks like I will be hitting the local tile stores..
