Mosaic Arts is about creating beautiful works of art with an assortment of items...such as tiles, glass, paper, seeds, eggshells, scrabble tiles, and other objects. You can think of a mosaic as a picture made up of smaller items. The pattern of the items together make up the picture as a whole. You can sort of think of mosaic tiles as pixels ... so each item makes up a small part of the picture.
Choosing which material to make up your mosaic artwork with, is important as it will really change the outlook of your picture. Find out how to make mosaics with glass, paper, tiles, photos, magazines with the following arts and crafts decorations, instructions, patterns, and activities for children to make magnetic crafts
Paint any medium-sized box a solid color. Cut sections of colorful greeting cards in matching-sized squares or rectangles and glue to the top of the box in either a hit-or-miss fashion or in a planned design. You may also paste on used postage stamps, sticker dots, stars or stickers, or colored seeds. To color seeds, first wash squash, watermelon or pumpkin seeds. Place some seeds in a jar and add a few drops of food coloring. Make several batches of seeds the same way. Spread the seeds on newspapers to dry. Arrange them in a design on the top of the box, using household cement to make them stick firmly.
