Beautiful Backsplash DIY

My assistant Danielle wanted a funky backsplash for her bathroom like the one I have in mine, so we gathered tons of different stuff and created one to reflect her crazy artistic style!  We used everything in my crafty junk bin
to make this magical mosaic and we couldn't be happier with the results.  Other than buying the grout, we had everything we needed to put it together, too.  Grab your doodads, beads and bobbles, some scrap wood and get going!

Here's a shot that includes my crazy baby head night light!

1/4" thick plywood
E-6000 Glue
Beads, dominos, gems, bottle caps, tiles, small mirrors, seashells
 Cut out the shape of your backsplash in the 1/4" plywood and sand the edges
Create your design using all of your doodads
Glue everything in place with E-6000 glue and let dry overnight
Cover the entire backsplash in group and with a damp sponge,
remove the grout to expose the glue on pieces
*Make sure to really clean the pieces before the grout dries
*You can also use plaster of Paris
