I started with turning my vase upside down. I decided to work from the bottom up and by flipping it over it was much easier to handle. With your adhesive bottle in hand apply a thin coat to the vase where you will be adding a tile. Take a glass tile and press and hold for a few seconds onto the glue surface. I learned quickly that less is more. If you have too much glue it will just slide around and take forever to set.
I repeated this process, leaving a little space in between the tiles, until I reached about halfway up the vase. I then flipped the vase back over and continued on. Once I got into the groove of things it actually went quicker than I expected.
Let cure for 5 to 6 hours. Then, take a damp sponge and wipe off any remaining glue residue. Be sure to follow the directions on the bottle and use this product in a well-ventilated area.
Following the direction on the mosaics grout container. Mix the grout until you get a thick, smooth consistency.
Then, wearing a disposable glove scoop some grout onto your fingers and spread it over the tiled vase, making sure to fill in all the cracks.
After letting it sit for about 20 minutes I took a scrub brush and went back over the tiles. I found it was OK to leave some residue on the mirror tiles. It will still wipe off after it sets.
I let it dry overnight, then took a scrub brush and cleaned up the surface area. I also wiped with a damp sponge until the mirror tiles were clean and shiny.
We are ready to put it all together! Fill your disco ball vase with some funky bright flowers. Add a splash of color and sparkle with a fun sequin runner. I set mine on a black tablecloth for maximum contrast.
You are sure to feel like a dancing queen as this disco ball vase, filled with neon bright flowers, sparkles and glitters in the room. Whether you’re ready to boogie the night away or lounge with friends. You and your guests will feel like hot stuff without even having to leave the table.
