Decorative Ceiling Tiles
I recently had the opportunity to review Decorative Ceiling Tiles. At first when I received my tiles (1 faux tin celing tile and 1 Styrofoam ceiling tile) I wasn't expecting them to be so big. I was impressed with how pretty the faux tin tile looked. I personally think these drop ceiling tiles would look wonderful in a kitchen or a master bedroom. I have also seen photographers use these tiles as back drops.
The first thing my little crafty mind thought about is all the possibilities that I could make with this one tile. The first thing I thought of was how great this would be to cut the inside out and make a mirror out of it. Then I kept thinking "what can I do with the rest of this?". . . . My mind keep going and I thought that the middle would make a lovely centerpiece. SO now I'm thinking I would cut the very center out and place a candle in there to make a beautiful center piece. Now if I did both of these, I have a wonderful mirror, and great centerpiece and then one piece left to do something with. . . What should I do with it? WELL how about a Christmas ornament? So now I took this tile that cost $9.99 and turned it into 3 great gifts/items for any house.
With the foam tile my husband came up with a great idea. What he is going to do is color all the lines with different colors and then cut out areas to put pictures in. What a great Christmas gift for grandparents.
*Im in the process of making these so pictures to come soon
Here is a picture of the tile as I received it
Here is a picture of my new mirror frame. I just need to add the mirror and then a frame to hold it. (I also need to paint the back so it doesn't show up on the mirror as being white)
Here is a picture after I did the 1st cut-out
My new center piece, ok well almost... Just one more part to cut out
My new center piece. I added a candle to the center and then to cover the hole in the middle I added flowers around the candle.
The very center that I cut out. I'm going to finish the edges and add a back to this and turn it into an ornament for the tree.
