Tiled Topiary Eggs and Tree

By:

This project creates an elegant decoration for the kitchen or bathroom with mosaic tiled pastel colors. Or use this concept for a totally unique Easter decoration that's unlike anything the neighbors will have.

Mosaic Tile Tree and Egg Decorations

Materials:

  • STYROFOAM Brand Products:
    • Cone, 12"
    • Eggs, three 4" long
  • Sheets of 3/8" tile squares: two light glue; one blue; one pale peach; one peach; one mauve; one light green; one green; one dark green
  • Rubber gloves
  • Grout, white
  • Rubber spatula
  • Tile nippers
  • Old cloth
  • Lint-free cloth
  • Acrylic floor wax
  • Low temperature glue gun and glue sticks or white, thick craft glue
     

Instructions:

  1. Using tile nippers, cut small number of each color tile in half lengthwise and diagonally; these will be the filler pieces. Determine design and colors for eggs and cone; models shown include vertical and horizontal stripes, swirls and crosses. Glue tiles to foam shapes, using generous amount of glue. Firmly press tiles in place, leaving 1/4" space between them. Let dry.
     
  2. Following manufacturer's instructions, mix the grout. Wear rubber gloves while working with grout. Use spatula to work grout into gaps between tile pieces; wherever possible, fill gaps with small tile pieces. As you work, remove excess grout from tiles with a damp cloth. Be sure all cracks and gaps are firmly filled with grout.
     
  3. Let dry for 30 minutes and then use lint-free cloth to rub all excess grout from tiles. Let dry for 24 hours. Coat with floor wax to seal the surface.
