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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
     
  4. 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.

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!!
