what can you make out of broken peaces of glass ?

I had little pecies of colourful glass and i wanted to make something out of it. any ideas ?

I was gonna say mosaic but someone already said that so.. I'm gonna get complicated. Get ready.

Make a kaleidoscope! I'm going to describe this without pictures, which would've made it much easier, but oh well. I'll try to make it simple:

You need an empty paper towel roll, glue, tape, extra cardboard (thick), colored tissue paper, clear plastic cut into two circles about the size of a baseball, three strips of mirror an inch in width x the length of the paper towel roll (you can get these cut for you at some hobby/craft stores), and your colored glass fragments.

cut the extra cardboard in two pieces which are each long enough to go all the way around the outside of the paper towel roll, and approximately 3-4 inches in width. One needs to be a bit less than a centimeter longer than the other. Use tape to make cylinders out of them, as if they were around the paper towel roll, but don't put them on it yet. One of these pieces of cardboard needs to go outside of the other one, so its diameter will be a little bigger.

On one end of each of these cylinders, tape a circle of clear plastic. Take the bigger cylinder, the one that will be on the outside, and hold it with the side with the clear plastic pointing down. Take your colored glass fragments and carefully drop them all down into the cylinder, onto the clear plastic. Then, pick up the smaller cylinder and slide it inside of the first one, clear plastic side first. Your glass pieces should be trapped between two clear pieces of plastic in a space less than a centimeter apart; the glass must be able to fall freely around the space it's in. This is VERY important. There should be enough glass that the pieces stack up on each other but not so thickly that light doesn't get thru very well.

Tape the three mirror strips together in the shape of a triangle with the reflective sides pointing inward. Slide mirror triangle into the paper towel roll and anchor in place by stuffing paper towels into the space between the roll and the outside of the mirrors and taping. Cover one end with a circle of extra cardboard with a centimeter-wide peephole.

Next, make a little tub or bowl of glue and water mixture, make it thickish but still kinda runny. Tear the colored tissue into pieces, dip it in the water/glue and stick it to the paper towel roll and outer cardboard cylinder in whatever pattern you like. Let dry, slide cylinders onto the end of the paper towel roll that doesn't have the cardboard cover w/peephole, and then finish decorating the outside with glue/stickers/pictures/whatever.

Cylinders should be able to freely turn on the paper towel roll in either direction. You hold the glass end up to some bright light, peep through the peephole, turn the end and you should be surprised at the lovely color patterns that the glass and mirrors make!

Disclaimer: Glass pieces and mirrors can cut you! Use with caution!!
