Glass Mosaic Garden Window

One fun use for glass mosaics is to create them using old window frames. The frame can be painted or left "rough" depending on the look you want. The only way I have displayed mine so far have been hung on a patio so there has been a little protection from the elements but I think you could just as easily hang them in some sort of a frame in your garden. Since windows are constructed to withstand weather, I believe they would be very durable shown this way. These were made with my usual glass-on-glass mosaic technique. My design was of 6 different Texas wildflowers - Purple Cone Flower, Indian Blanket, Sunflower, Indian Paintbrush, Bluebonnets, and Yuccas.
