Mosaic Kits

I have been asked in the past, if I ever would consider putting together kits for mosaics, so I decided to try a few.

One of the simplest yet prettiest things to mosaic are vintage silver trays.  So I thought I would try to put together a few kits for silver trays.



The silver trays are not included in the kit, but can be found easily at thrift stores and antique stores.  What IS included in the kit is a FREE copy of my "How To Mosaic A Tray" Ebook.

If you every wanted to try mosaics, but didn't want to buy the nippers or were afraid to cut the china, these kits are perfect for you.  

I will be adding more kits over the next few days.  I will be making some kits with transferware plates too.

They can be purchased in my ETSY shop, the link is on my side bar.
Welcome Home,
Penny

They are so pretty and what a great idea to put in your shop. I love kits myself and I was one of those that was afraid to cut the tiles.

That's a great idea! That would be a lot of fun as a mother/daughter project for a little girls room too. the patterns you created look very pretty.

Penny, I love these! Especially the second one (I love blue). And the "how to" guide is a perfect addition.

What a sweet idea, Penny. There are many of us who are afraid to start too big - this seems just right.

What a great idea, Penny! I have a little wooden tray that I did with some red transfer ware years ago and it's still one of my favorite ever crafty things.

THis is a wonderful idea, Penny. I might just see my way to starting something this small. I'll have to go out Monday and start looking for a round tray.

What a great idea! I think cutting the pieces is the most intimidating part of doing this. Having the pieces already done is awesome!

Hi Penny,
What a wonderful idea!
My beautiful black and white toile tea lamp was to tall for under my counter at the new house and I did not have electrical in the center island, so I put it on my office desk..where I could see it everyday..but I really wanted it in my kitchen, so Gary called the electrican and had electrical ran under the house and up to the kitchen center island..YEAH!!! now my beautiful tea pot lamp is front and center again on the kitchen island giving off the sweetest glow.
Have a sweet day and big hugs.
Love all the books.
Elizabeth

Absolutely gorgeous, Penny!

Hi Penny, The tiles you shared are so pretty. This is a great idea. It looks easy but I know it's not. You are taking the fear of cutting tiles away.

Spring is really starting to bloom here. I hope we don't get a late freeze.

Happy days to you today and always.
Hugs, Jeanne

Your kits are a great idea. Getting started with a new creative project is often the hardest part, the kits should help.
