Paint Chip Mosaic Art
This beautiful Paint Chip Mosaic Art is a great way to use up all those paint chips and paper scraps that you have lying around your craft stash. Arranged into a lovely mosaic pattern, this artwork would look beautiful in your dining room or kitchen.
- Poster Board
- Elmers glue
- Saral transfer paper
- Paint chips or scrap paper
- 8 x 10 Frame
Collect free sample colors from department stores or paint stores. Choose a variety of shades. For example, if one of the colors to be used it's green then choose as many different variations of green ranging from light to dark.
Pre cut your free color samples into 1" squares or smaller (this step is optional if you prefer you can cut as you go). Keep in mind that this little squares don't have to be of a perfect measurement. They can be re cut to fit a specific area later on.
Use your picture frame insert as a template to cut the poster board so that it can fit into the picture frame. Following the manufactures instructions transfer the pear pattern to the poster board.
Start gluing your colors with Elmer’s glue. Do small sections at the time as your schedule allows you to. Paper mosaic can be a little time consuming but is an inexpensive form of art that is very gratifying to see when it’s done.
- Frame art.

This is such a great idea! As a college student, I'm always looking for low-cost and non-permanent decorations for my dorm. With a little bit of adhesive putty, you could put the paint chips right on a dorm wall! I'm sure that even a less intricate mosaic than the one in this article would do wonders to brighten a sterile dorm room!

This looks easy but you need a lot of patient when making mosaic projects. But when you get to finish this, yo can hang it on the wall of your room and it will look like a canvas.

Hi!!! This is a wonderful design. I'd never would have thought about it. Great for older kiddoes even, but since I want them to be responsible, I'll ask my local store to order some for me, so I can pay for them. Good lesson learned and the kids are craftsy at the same time!!
