Magazine Mosaics

EDCO: Magazines

Using old magazines, you can achieve an effect similar to mosaics formed of glass, clay or stone.

What You Need:

  • Magazines
  • Paper (bristol board works best)
  • Paint (optional)
  • White glue

What You Do:

  • Cut out small pieces of magazines. Select related colors and start piles of reds, greens, blues etc.
  • Draw a picture or design onto the paper. It’s a good idea to refer to pictures of mosaics.
  • Begin adding the pieces of magazines to create a mosaic.
  • Remember to take time to plan out your ideas and don't be afraid to experiment.
