Lawn Mowing Interupted

I thought I would share with you a little project that Mr. Martisanne undertook in the garden in the sunshine this week, he disappeared into the garden to mow the lawn, the lawnmower wouldn't start so this is what happened instead, he unleashed a little of his creative spirit

Decorated garden post

We were gifted maybe a year ago some small mosaic tiles and have been waiting for a project for which to use them and here it is.

Tiled garden fence post

Very easy to do , just use "hard as nails" or similar strong adhesive, spread it on a concrete post with a tile spreader and stick the tiles on, it was only done last week so can't vouch for the longevity of project , but for the time being it looks very pretty.

Garden upcycling ideas

Next to be mosaiced is the fishpond walls.

You could pick tiles up for this project fairly easily, people usually have spare tiles from tiling, so keep an eye out at your local recycling centre or freecycle or car boot sales. Sometimes diy shops may have discontinued lines cheap ,or part boxes heavily reduced if a couple have broken in the box.

You could use this idea for endless projects, walls , plant pots , a table top or indoor projects like mirror frames, picture frames, upcycle a wooden box to pretty jewellery box,I would love to here of any ideas you have or projects you have undertaken with recycled tiles


  1. Love this such a fantastic idea! Now I just need some tiles, wood and no more nails lol

    1. Thankyou, it was such a spur of the moment thing but turned out great .
