Moss and Mosaic Eggs

By:

0 Comments

Springy, soft moss and blue, bright china details bring the charm of a garden indoors. Garage sales and thrift stores are a perfect place to find mismatched china that you can turn into mosaic masterpieces!

Mosaic and Moss Eggs

Materials:

  • STYROFOAM Brand Foam:
    • Egg, 4"
  • Broken or mismatched china pieces
  • Optional: flat-backed glass gems to complement china
  • Lichen moss
  • Ruler
  • Hammer
  • Scissors
  • Old towel
  • Wooden skewer
  • Optional: tile nippers
  • Low temperature glue gun and glue sticks
  • White, thick craft glue

Steps:

  1. To break china for mosaic, wrap one piece of china in towel. Gently tap hammer against china. Continue until broken pieces are about 3/4" across; remove from towel. Break remaining china until there are enough pieces to cover foam egg.
     
  2. Use glue gun to glue china pieces to egg, fitting pieces close together to cover entire surface. Glue gems to egg as desired.
     
  3. If more china pieces are needed to fit particular spaces, repeat Step 1. Tile nippers may be used to shape china pieces as needed.
     
  4. Apply generous amount of white glue to open areas between china pieces. Use tip of skewer to press bits of moss into glue. Use hands to push moss firmly into surface of egg.
     
  5. Use scissors to trim moss to even height; let dry.
