Sunflower mosaic coaster

I used to be a bit snobby about pre-made craft kits. I thought that I ought to be able to come up with my own ideas rather than follow someone else's. But although they can be expensive, a kit is a lot easier, because everything is included and you don't end up with too many leftovers. They are great for a craft that you just want to try out once without having to purchase a lot of supplies and equipment.

Anyway I was in Hobbycraft recently (a rare treat) and I found a little mosaic coaster kit in the sale. It was very cheap so I thought that I'd give it a go. It was really quick to do and I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. There didn't seem to be any way of cutting the (very tiny) tiles, so it's a bit blocky, but I think that you can still see that it's a sunflower. You may notice that I like mosaics and sunflowers!

I've found some great craft kits in Hobbycraft recently, like the ones that I used to make candles and to make soap. There are also some lovely craft kits for children that I find make great gifts.

  1. I actually did one of the same kits (also because it was in the sale in Hobbycraft!). It didn't end up looking quite as nice as yours but I was reasonably pleased with the result.

  2. That's funny that you had the same kit! I can't remember how much they were, but I do remember thinking that they were a bargain and I had to restrain myself from filling my basket!

    Mrs S - do you have a blog? I can't get to your Blogger profile!
