This DIY tutorial , brings a special touch to your desk ! A can with Mosaic effect is a creative and easy idea to make
You will need :
- cans of different sizes
- acrylic paint
- hot glue gun
- a sponge
Remove all the labels from the cans after cleaning them. Apply a coat of white acrylic paint and let it dry. When it has dried, apply a second coat of paint.
Cut out small tiles from the styrofoam and paint them in different colors. This will give a mosaic effect to the cans.
Glue the tiles to the can, using the hot glue gun(leave some space between the tiles ).
Put a glove on your hand and apply the grout on the cans and spread it. Make sure to cover all the holes between the tiles, then let the grout dry for 30 mns.
After this remove the surplus of grout, by using a dry sponge.
In case you have grout on the tiles it can be removed the next day with a damp sponge.
Add a coat of varnish to finish the cans.
Find a nice place for it on your desk and place your pens and scissors inside.
