The final broken dish project creates visual interest and ambient outdoor lighting (although, it could be cute as an indoor fixture too).
I used broken bowls and chipped away at some of the jagged edges.
I recycled an old wooden board and painted it brown. If you intend to store this outside be sure to seal/waterproof the wood.
Use sanded grout to glue the bowls down.
Wipe away the excess grout.
Add 2 hooks to the back to hang it up.
I used an IKEA shot glass as a votive (cheap, cheap, cheap) and placed them into the bowls.
This would also be really cool with mix and match patterns, flat plates would look great too. You can get really creative with this project.
