Leftover grout

Posted by texasfern (My Page) on

After grouting a barstool and the china candle holders I found I had a bunch leftover.
I lined a large funnel with tin foil, slapped the grout in (obviously) and let it dry for a few days.
It is a rough idea, but I think it will be ok with some fun tessy stuff on it.
Might let the grandkids do this one.

How fun! Your grandkids will love making that pretty!

I picked up a tip here a long time ago about posting pictures direct....if you add:
to your image tag, that keeps them just the right size for the board. But I don't mind the big pictures...let's me see all the details!

RE: Leftover grout

Aren't we something. We'll find the most interesting ways to use ordinary things in our arts/crafts. I once made a hanging light fixture for a corner in one of my country kitchens, using one of those HUGE funnels. Hope the grout holds up for you w/o breaking.

RE: Leftover grout

Well, I just couldn't waste the grout!
If it doesn't hold up (that was my concern as well)
it will have not been a total waste.....I just didn't toss it!
