Dad Mosaic Pattern for Fathers Day
August 22nd, 2010 by Craftylocks

This simple technique is a great way to jazz up a word.

Dad is a perfect word for making a pattern with this mosaic style technique. We have created a couple variations on this technique. To make the pattern, draw up a grid on the paper – it can be a grid with all straight lines, or with some wavy lines. Then write the word on top, and rub out the grid lines that are inside the word shapes. You can also do it the other way round, and write the word first, and then do the grid lines.

Color in the shapes using two different colors, alternating them as shown below. In this first example we made the pattern stand out by going over all the lines with a black felt.

With the other pattern, we cut it up into a grid and turned it into a mosaic picture by gluing each square onto a black background with a little gap between each one.

We have used this paper craft for children before when we made a Paper Mosaic from a Drawing.
