If one of your resolutions is to bring more creativity into your life, think Pique Assiette Mosaic Tile!
Due to its random nature, anyone can do it!
Really, you’re just gluing stuff to other stuff. Besides, it can be a very cheap hobby … or not. Depends on how obsessed you become.
Just find a space to call your own and start stocking it with the right tools, materials and adhesives to get started with Making Mosaics with Found Objects.
Start small and you’ll grow from there … believe me.
#1 Wheeled Glass Nippers have a set of disc shaped wheels on spring-loaded handles. They should be used to cut glass, mirror, glass tiles, and the like in a manner similar to tile nippers. Replacement wheels are sold separately.
#2 Mosaic Tile Cutter are designed for cutting ceramic tiles, crockery and china. Better tile nippers have tungsten-carbide cutting edges and spring-loaded handles.
#3 Weldbond Adhesive, Mastic and Grout
Always good to have nearby:

Now all you need is a base, tile and some found objects. Ta da.
