Mosaic art has been around almost forever, starting way back in the 3rd millennium BC – if you're a history buff, check out the wiki page.
Mosaics usually involve creating an image or piece of art using small pieces of glass, tile or stone. It can be just a lovely naïve pattern in gorgeous colours or an intricate piece. The options are endless, and anything can be covered in mesmerising patterns.
Check out these six wonderful projects and let your imagination go wild.
Make ordinary rocks a statement piece of art, how good would this look in your garden!
Mosaics make wonderful wall panels. Look at this fantastic panel using old china to create a great a wall of jugs.
Creating landscape art scenes don’t always need to be complicated. Look at this lovely bare branch with pink blossoms and an amazing blue sky!
Make old ordinary household things into sculptural pieces. The trick is to start with a clean surface and make sure you use the right adhesive especially if you are going to have your piece outside.
How’s this clever idea! Mosaic old concrete blocks to turn them from boring to fabulous. Get everyone involved in the act.
Get a little sculptural and add a little whimsy to your garden with a toadstool. Use whatever colours you like and let your imagination run wild.
