If your kitchen work space is starting to look a little dull, and you want to liven things up a little, why not update a utensil pot with self-adhesive Smart Mosaic Tiles? I’ve created an easy step-by-step guide.
What you’ll need:
- Smart Mosaic Tiles (Walls and Floors)
- A utensil pot (Wilco, B&M or Dunelm)
- A cloth
- A craft knife
Step One: Get buffing!
Take the cloth and buff the utensil pot to remove any dirt or dust that might prevent the mosaics from sticking.
Step Two: Cut the Smart Mosaics!
Lay your Smart Mosaics sheet down flat on the table, with a protective surface underneath it, such as a chopping board. Take your utensil pot and sit it length-ways on your sheet, buffered up to the edge. This will tell you where you need to cut.
Take your craft knife, and make a clean, straight cut between the mosaic rows. You’ll be left with a strip of mosaics that is the height of your utensil pot.
Step Three: Fix them in place!
Take the strip of mosaics you cut, and turn it over on the table. Unpeel the backing paper from one side by an inch or so, and press the utensil pot into it – lining up the mosaics with the top and the bottom.
Slowly roll the utensil pot – unpeeling the backing paper, and pressing as you go.
Step Four: Fill the gap
If the strip of mosaics didn’t wrap the whole way around the utensil pot and there’s a gap – don’t worry – you can fill it. Take the off-cut of mosaics from earlier and line it up with the gap.
Slice yourself an appropriately sized piece; one that best fills the gap.
Peel off the backing paper, and stick the piece into the gap.
If there’s an excess piece overhanging at the top, simply take your craft knife and slice it off!
There you have it
And voila – you’re now left with a newly-decorated utensils pot; perfect for refreshing a kitchen work surface!
