Bermuda DIY Art Ideas

By now you've seen my Bermuda beach photos and the beautiful glass and clay pottery they make there, but I have just one more thing to share about my trip.  On our last day there we went to the Bermuda craft market.  The craft market is on the West end of the island and is a co-operative where local artists display their work.

The craft market gave me some great ideas for DIY projects.  Check out this framed beach scene, it is actually a collage made from fabric.  The artist used linen, denim, and other fabrics to create an ocean scene and added a tiny seashell and small twig for dimension.  While I thought this piece was very cool, I couldn't justify spending the asking price of about $200.  I think it would make a great DIY project though.


At the nearby Clocktower Mall, I saw these very cute mosaic candle holders in one of the shops.  These votive holders had a very Moroccan look and were covered with glass pieces and beads.  I'd love to try my own DIY version of these mosaic cuties by covering a glass votive with grout and then adding some colored glass or beads.


I love all of the project ideas my trip has given me. Have you ever created something based on your travels?
