Ivy Leaf Mosaic Hanging Pot

The project was added to your Craft Projects.
We have the most wonderful vine-covered wall at the end of our garden, and this was the true source of inspiration for this mosaic. I love the subtle greens of the tumbling leaves; and, to capture the subtlety of the natural tones, I chose three key shades for the leaves, then matched them to the colors for the stems. Finally, I used a pale background that helps to make the leaves stand out. When working out a color scheme, it can be rewarding to look closely at the source of your own inspiration, particularly in the garden: flowers and plants offer wonderful arrangements to copy.
Project excerpted from Becky Paton's Garden Mosaics: 25 Step-by-Step Projects for our Outdoor Room.
Mosaic pots are a great way to add a season-round splash of color to small corners of the garden that may need extra interest. Just by adding one or two vibrantly-colored mosaic pots to an ordinary collection of pots you can add instant chic to a planting arrangement. For the project at left, I used a very simple grid pattern which required no tile cutting. The daisy motif pot (right) was slightly more complicated but very effective.
