"...Serve one another in love." Galatians 5:13

What You Need: Wooden tray; flat, broken pieces of ceramic; premixed, sanded grout; plastic spatula spreader; large, flat sponge; water; cloth, permanent marker.

What You Do: Evenly spread grout into tray, approximately 1/8" thick. Press ceramic pieces into grout. Do not allow more than 1/2" between the pieces. Your design can be abstract as shown in the pictures above, or a representative design.  Allow to dry about 24 hours. Apply grout over ceramic with spreader to fill cracks. Begin wiping top of ceramic off with damp sponge. Keep sponge flat so as not to drag grout from between ceramic pieces. Clean sponge after each wipe across. Squeeze water out completely and continue wiping until a thin haze of grout is left on ceramic pieces. Allow to dry another 24 hours. Buff tile to a shine using a damp, clean cloth.

On the sides of the tray write the Bible verse: "...Serve one another in love." Galatians 5:13

Give as a gift or use it to serve others!
