Yesterday, Kathleen George showed us how to make a Garden Mosaic Ball using pebbles or polished river rocks. If you’re like me, you wouldn’t mind displaying these beautifully natural mosaics inside, too. Kathleen’s next idea will do just that, as she shares her tutorial for making Mosaic Wreaths from polished stones.
Kathleen’s River Stone Mosaic Wreath has a soft and subtle, pastel color palette. She embellished her pebble mosaic wreath with seashells and a few other beach treasures. If you prefer, you can simply leave your Mosaic Wreath unadorned. The tutorial for the River Stone Mosaic Wreath is on StyrofoamCrafts.com.
If you’d like a little more drama, check out Kathleen’s Polished Rock Mosaic Wreath. For this mosaic wreath, Kathleen chose larger polished stones in dark colors, and used a tinted grout between the stones. Wow! I don’t have instructions for this wreath, but you can adapt the instructions for the River Stone Mosaic Wreath to make it.
These are such a beautiful, timeless craft — I hope you enjoy making your own mosaics.
I’m curious – do you collect rocks when you take a walk or hike, or maybe pocket a few when you travel? I do, and I’m wondering if you do, too.
