The original mosaic: the decor from broken crockery

If you want to your home is an original and unique, this is your option! It looks unusual. Such mosaic decorations adorn any home and make it different from others.

What you need to get started? Firstly, the material! This can be broken ceramics, glass or mirror. You can take common household items, like tea pots and vases, and  cover them with bits of broken pottery.
Start with a small frame or terra cotta pot. Use one of your old chipped plates that would have made it’s way into the trash. Put it in an old pillow case and give it a whack with a hammer.
Note: If you have large pieces of broken pottery, you can break it gently with pliers .

Gather your broken tiles into color categories. This will help you when the time comes to actually put them into place.

Now it comes time to make the mosaic. When you have all of your broken tile pieces, lay them onto the surface that you will decorate. Again, this can be anything at all.

Take your pieces and slide them into the wooden frame (if not already there). They might scatter a little, but if you are careful, it should not be too bad. Slide the attempted escapees back into place.

Now, individually glue each piece into place with the tile adhesive.

Once the tiles have set, mix up the cement with water until it is of the consistency described on the cement bag (liquid but not runny). Now put the cement/water mix over all the tiles.

Using a soft cloth, rub off the excess cement that covers the tile pieces.
