What is a mosaic?

Mosaic is the art of creating images with lots of small pieces of coloured glass, stone, or other materials.

Mosaics are one of the oldest forms of art, first arriving in Europe from Mesopotamia around 4,000 or 5,000 years ago.  And it’s changed very little over the years. 

Using mosaic tiles you can make and decorate:

  • wall hangings
  • ornaments
  • coasters
  • picture frames
  • candle holders
  • vases
  • mirrors
  • table tops 

and much more!

Mosaics can be applied to practically any surface so the only limit is in your imagination.

You can get many different visual effects using reflective or iridescent materials and you can be as creative as you want to be!

With outdoor mosaic tile kits, you can decorate items such as bird baths and plant pots.

Mosaic art is so versatile.  And each piece of art will be unique depending on the materials and colours you use. 

Whilst you can make your own mosaic art with your own supplies, not everyone has broken glass, china or other suitable materials to hand. 

These mosaic kits for adults are not only fun but also convenient!

Benefits from crafting with mosaic kits for beginners

  • no special tools are needed as the material comes ready to be used
  • mosaic kits contain everything you need (eg vintage china, glass tiles, ceramic tiles, fused glass, ribbon, adhesive, grout)
  • instructions are included for you to follow
  • it’s very tactile/hands on craft, drawing you into the ‘flow’
  • improves hand-eye coordination
  • great for self-esteem
  • finding/rediscovering your creativity without any pressure
  • social – get together with friends/family and create from mosaic kits together
  • easy and fun

If this will be your first time crafting with the mosaic technique, the kits in this collection are a brilliant starting point for beginners.

If you then find out you enjoy creating mosaics, you’ll have some experience and be able to use that when you buy your own supplies.

If you’re an experienced crafter, the convenience of everything you need in a kit is a big plus.

Making mosaics is fun and therapeutic.  You don’t need my permission but I’m telling you to go have some fun 🙂

  1. Hi Nicky,

    are you in the UK? You can buy pre-cut glitter tiles. You’ll also need adhesive for your plastic circles, grout and protective gloves. The info here will give you an idea of what you need to do https://www.themosaicshop.co.uk/making-a-mosaic

    I would draw your idea out on paper first to see if it works and then source what you will need.

    I hope this helps. If you need anything else, give me a shout. Just on my way out for lunch and a walk but I’ll check back later.

  2. Hi Shaz, Just love your designs and reaching out for help. I have bought a hydria fountain and in the pictures they show a mosaic topper, which they do not sell. I want something like this but with glitter glass mini tiles. I have bought a plastic circles 30cm but I need ideas re design. Never done anything like this so have no clue what materials I need – happy to buy them from you. I am a creative person but need guidance. Thought of blues and white tiles. Can you help and what would be the cost. If you can’t help really understand
