I have already started planning my garden and this year I’m going to add at least one garden mosaic. Mosaic projects are not difficult and have a beautiful colorful look when you are finished. There are all kinds of different projects you can put in your garden, and the durability of mosaic projects means your piece should last.

To get yourself started, I recommend buying a pair of tile cutters instead of simply breaking with a hammer. I have found I am much less likely to cut myself accidently when I use tile cutters. If you find yourself breaking plates, glasses, china or other types of pottery or glassware save the pieces for your next project. You can also pick up odd pieces of pottery and colored glass at thrift shops or the dollar store. You can buy pieces of brightly colored mosaic glass also, or even mix pretty china with the colored glass for a beautiful project. Make sure to wear work gloves (like thicker gardening gloves from the dollar store!) when cutting glass or pottery.
