Cassville library hosts mosaics craft project

Wednesday, July 19, 2017
Michael Barton puts the finishing touches on his mosaic flower pot, to outline pieces of his mosaic to make it stand out, while his wife, Linda Barton, finishes glueing her last pieces of mosaic on. The mosaic-patterned pots, part of an adult crafting project at the Cassville Branch Library over the weekend, were created from recycled CDs, a form of “upcycling.” Julia Kilmer/reporter@cassville-democrat.com

Cutting several CDs into pieces by hand to create a mosaic craft project, gluing each piece onto a flower pot, then outlining each piece, took time and patience, and Amanda Miller holds her nearly-finished up proudly. Her mother, Janice Ray, sitting beside her, also participated in the activity, which was held at the Cassville Branch Library on Saturday. Julia Kilmer/reporter@cassville-democrat.com
