Mosaic Wall

By:

Make a mosaic wall with this craft using scrapbook paper from Alexa Westerfield. Just arrange the colored squares in a grid for instant color.

Mosaic Wall

Materials:

  • Multicolored scrapbook page packs (I purchased mine at Target and 50 sheets came to a pack; I purchased 2 packs)
  • Zot adhesive glue dots
  • Tape measure

Instructions:

  1. I measured out the length of my wall, then I figured out how many square 12x12 pieces of paper would fit into that length.
     
  2. I picked out 9 different colors from a multi-color pack that I liked and placed them in a random fashion. Starting at the top, I horizontally placed the paper (to adhere to wall I put Zot dots in the four corners of the paper and pressed).
     
  3. I then began on the next row. My goal was to not repeat two colors in a row vertically or horizontally. It was a challenge, but not that hard once I started doing the mosaic. I tried to not get too many colors together or have similar colors sitting next to each other. I wanted it to look like a mosaic of color that looked random in placement and aesthetically pleasing overall.

GREAT IDEA.......HOW 'BOUT USING FELT SQUARES?

Very creative! Do you know the name of the brand you used for this?

This sounds like a great idea! I was looking for a way for brightening the room without painting my walls, since my landlord does not allow that. Is there a way to attach it without the zot dots ? Purchasing foam board would add to the cost considerably.

Try light tack spray adhesive. Spray the paper instead of the wall. It is repositionable and can be removed later.

A very versitile way of redecorating!!!

My son just got a full size bed. Right now there is no headboard. I think I am going to check out what papers are available in red, his favorite color and secure them to foam core, then clear coat it. It might make a cool and inexpensive headboard! If anyone has tried this please let us know how it worked out.

Looks nice but zot dots will ruin the wall when you take it off. Maybe doing it on a piece of foam board first would be better.

Oh wow, this is amazing. I'm going to redo my room soon and I have been looking for something creative to make it unique. Thanks for the great idea!!

What a fantastic way to add colour to a room without the cost & effort of painting. I can't wait to try it.

This is original, creative, and looks absolutely faaaaabulous!!

I love this!! I think if you wanted to make it water proof.. you could laminate each page first.. though that would be costly.. You could also check the type of paper you get (do a test sheet) & apply a water proof clear coat paint on it.. Well I guess all paint is water proof lol. But do a clear coat over each piece.. I would do both sides as your wall will sweat at times too. AND If you wanted to make it perm. you could do the clear coat paint right over the top of it.. (Once you check the pages & make sure they will not bleed w/ the paint on it.) You know (sorry to keep gabbing.. ) This would be a great idea for a teens/kids room.. You can let them chose the colors.. Like right now my daughter would probably do all black papers w/ a bright pink heart made out in the middle of it some how.. Same goes with cartoon characters.. this way when they are board with it, take them down & do something else... A B C's for the baby & change it as they grow... I am loving this idea!

This is a great effect! Love the fact that it isn't permanent!

You could laminate the paper before adhering it to the wall.

Is there any way to waterproof this so it can be done in a bathroom or laundry room?
