Eye catching guitars are pretty damn cool. From Miranda’s signature pink guitar to Dolly’s bejeweled white Taylor, country artists have been taking the stage with iconic instruments for years.
While you may not have the budget of headlining artists, you might have an old guitar lying around that you want to freshen up a bit.
Luckily for you, a new trend in guitar fashion comes with an awesome DIY option.
Mosaic Guitars, as they’re called, are decorated with reflective pieces that look like tiles as well as stones, beads and more.
With a little creativity and resourcefulness, you can customize your own instrument without breaking the bank.
First you’ll want to apply a background color to your guitar and a surface that holds better to glues. This tutorial will show you how.
Now its time to decorate.Shatter some old CDs and organize their pieces all along the body as well as on the back for a cool mirror effect. Pick up some beads or gems from a local craft store and affix them with Mod Podge or hot glue. Honestly, the possibilities here are endless, which means you’ll end up with a one of a kind guitar that will definitely turn some heads.
