Large 4 ft Stained Glass Mosaic Octopus Wall Art

large blue green mosaic octopus
My latest mosaic piece... a big, giant octopus.
He's actually a little over 4 feet wide but very lightweight.
He got in my head and I just had to make him.

I got on a octopus kick after I added this octopus Christmas stocking
to my other sea life stockings.

I paired him with a coordinating sea coral painting.

I worked on him off and on over a few weeks while working
on other orders.

mother of pearl flat circle beads for mosaic
 I was stumped on what to use for the suckers or suction
cups then spotted these mother of pearl round beads
at the craft store and knew they would be great.

I love how they look.

Here's how they look after they were grouted.
I bought two different sizes of them and cut some of them in half

I used a beautiful blue/green stained glass with a darker
blue for accent on the arms and dark gray grout.

All those arms and edges were definitely a challenge to mosaic and grout!

I do love how he turned out. He's in my Etsy Shop if you want
to know more info about him.

Thanks for checking out all my octopus pics.

  1. Hi Lucy!!! I love all your mosaics. Can I ask if you cut all your wood yourself? Is it possible to but substrates from you?

  2. Elizabeth, yes, I cut them myself, on this one I used a Rotozip saw, you can use a jigsaw but the rotozip just makes it easier. Email me at Lucy@LucyDesignsOnline if you more questions. thank you!
