Make a pebble mosaic.

What You'll Need:

  • Plywood or particle board
  • Craft glue or tile grout
  • A variety of pebbles

Step 1: First collect lots of pretty pebbles in different colors and shapes to use to make your mosaic.

Step 2: If you like, first use a pencil to draw a design on a piece of plywood.

Step 3: Glue the pebbles on the design. Or, spread the plywood with grout, and push the pebbles into the grout.

A pebble mosaic makes a good trivet to use for holding hot pots. You can also make pebble mosaics to decorate flower pots, vases, or lamps. What else could you decorate with pebbles?
