    • 1). Draw a design freehand on a flat surface using a pencil. You can also trace a pattern onto tracing paper and then trace it onto the surface.

    • 2). Purchase small tiles from a craft or home improvement store to fit the size of your pattern. If the tiles need to be cut, you can rent or purchase a tile cutter from a home improvement store. Choose a variety of colored tiles to create your design.

    • 3). Place the tiles into the pattern using tile adhesive, which can be purchased from craft or home improvement stores. Apply the glue to the tile following the manufacturer's directions and place the tile into the desired pattern.

    • 4). Glue down each tile until the entire pattern on the surface has been filled.

    • 5). Allow the adhesive to cure according to the manufacturer's directions.

    • 7). Allow the grout to dry per the manufacturer's directions before placing the mosaic on display.
