Completed Mosaic Flower Pot Using Broken Ceramic Tiles

Finally, here is the completed product with the new tile grout color. Notice the black grouting inside the garden clay pot. The inside grout is only 3 to 4 inches deep. The rest of the inside of the pot (up to the bottom) is untreated.

If you don't like the color of the grout used in the mosaic garden pot, you could still change it, provided the grout has not yet been sealed with a grout sealer or any other sealant.

Initially, our son's idea was to use cement or mortar for binding the tiles together to the garden clay pot. This may have been the instruction from the teacher. For this reason, we chose a gray-colored tile grout. Tile grout is cheap and usually comes in 2 kilo bags.

  1. Tile Grout

    As mentioned before, a contrasting color between tile and grout would be attractive. In general, most ceramic tiles are light colored. So a black colored grout would fit most needs.

This Mosaic Flower Pot project was actually borne out of a class assignment that my son had in school. The class assignment was to come up with a mosaic project using broken tiles.

The base for the mosaic was really optional, but it seemed all the students chose the terracotta or garden clay pot as the base to mount the mosaic design.

So I helped my son start off with the Mosaic Flower Pot project by choosing the tiles and then helping him work on the application of sealant and grout until the mosaic flower pot was completed.

The top part of the main trunk appears to have been tightly wound by the guide wire as shown below.
