Make unique miniature mosaics with wood shapes and glass chips.


  • Step 1
    Choose your favorite wood shape and stained glass chips (each mosaic will use approximately 6-8 chips). Cut glass chips into smaller, desired shapes with the Wheeled Glass Nippers. Arrange glass to fit on the wood shape.

  • Step 2
    Glue each piece of glass securely to the wood shape with Aleene's "Tacky" Glue. Allow glue to dry thoroughly before grouting.

  • Step 3
    Apply white or black grout to finish the mosaic. (A 2 lb. tub of grout will be enough for an average-sized class.) Clean mosaic (before grout is completely dry) with a damp sponge.
