This pretty mosaic vase is actually tiled with paper! Paper mosaic is faster and easier than china or tile mosaic. And we think it turned out really nice!
How To Make A Paper Mosaic Vase
Vintage-finish scrapbook paper in light green, dark green, magenta, coral, orange, yellow, white, & light blue
Plaid Folk Art Acrylic Paint, Linen #420
Martha Stewart Crafts Multi-Surface Acrylic Craft Paint, Mother of Pearl
Plaid Mod Podge Super Gloss
1/2″ wide bristle brush
6 Pearl adhesive gems, 10mm
2 Pearl adhesive gems, 8mm
25 Pearl adhesive gems, 5mm
1. Paint the vase Linen. Let dry. Paint the vase Mother of Pearl.
1. Cut the large petal template to cut five large petals to make each of the magenta, orange, and yellow flowers. Use the small petal template to cut out dark green leaves and smaller white flowers. Use the stem template to cut stem pieces out of dark green.
2. Arrange the flowers on the vase. Leave spaces between every piece to show through as “grout”. Glue each piece down with the paintbrush and Mod Podge. Paint a coat of Mod Podge under and over the top of each piece. Arrange the leaf and stem pieces (leaving spaces between each piece to show through like “grout”) and adhere with ModPodge in the same way.
3. Cut squares and triangles of light green and light blue to create the background. Arrange the pieces leaving spaces between each piece to show through like “grout”. Cut pieces to fit into spaces. Arrange square pieces of light blue around the top edge of the vase.
4. Give the whole surface another coat of Mod Podge. Let dry. Adhere the large and medium gems to the flower centers. Place a small pearl on the center of each square tile around the lip of the vase.
