DIY Mosaic Tile Planter 03:07

Dan Faires' attractive mosaic tile planter is a cinch to make yourself.

Materials and Tools:

plastic bucket
mosaic tile sheet
vinyl double-sided tape
grout float
razor blade
hand saw

Attach Tile Sheet

Cut the top off the bucket with a hand saw, and drill holes in the bottom of the bucket if keeping outside. Wrap vinyl tape around the bucket, making sure not to overlap the seams of the tape. Once the bucket is covered, partially peel the top of the adhesive to expose it. Adhere the first tile sheet flush with the bottom of the bucket. Continue adhering until the entire bucket is covered. Use a razor blade to remove any overlapping pieces of tile.

Apply Grout 

Use a grout float to apply pre-mixed grout to the entire surface, making sure grout completely fills all spaces between tiles. Wipe excess grout using a wet rag or sponge, and allow grout to fully set for 24 hours. Once dry, remove excess film with a wet sponge or cloth.

Add Plants

Add your favorite plant, and display inside or outside.
