Step 1: Assemble Your Crafting Arsenal

Get ready to light up your space with a radiant glow! Gather a glass cylinder, design paper, glue, precision tweezers, diamond mosaics in orange and yellow, and a mix of orange and yellow beads. Don’t forget those square orange mosaics for the borders. Prepare your crafting station for some creative brilliance.


Step 2: Crafting the Sunburst Centerpiece

Begin by creating the main design pattern: a striking sunburst made of three layers of diamond mosaics. Start with orange diamond mosaics for the inner layer, followed by yellow for the middle layer, and finish with orange for the outer layer. This vibrant centerpiece will be the focal point of your modern wall sconce.


Step 3: Adding Smaller Sun Patterns

Enhance your design with four smaller patterns positioned at the corners of the main sunburst, forming a square. Use the same orange and yellow diamond mosaics to maintain a cohesive and vibrant look.


Step 4: Beadwork Brilliance

Surround your mosaic patterns with a mix of yellow and orange beads. Apply glue to the empty spaces around the mosaics and sprinkle the beads to add texture and depth. Use tweezers to place them precisely, ensuring a single layer for a polished finish.


Step 5: Elegant Border Frames

Frame your mosaic masterpiece with upper and lower borders made of square orange mosaics. These borders will encircle the cylinder, adding a dynamic and cohesive touch to your wall sconce.


Step 6: Glue and Mosaic Precision

Begin gluing the mosaics from the center of your sunburst, working your way outward. Apply just enough glue to secure each piece without causing it to slip. Follow the same method for the smaller patterns and the borders, ensuring a seamless and professional finish.


Step 7: Bead Embellishment

Fill any remaining spaces with your mix of yellow and orange beads. Apply glue to the empty areas, sprinkle the beads, and use tweezers to arrange them neatly into a single layer, adding a touch of whimsy and texture.


Step 8: Grouting for Stability

Prepare your grout to a smooth, toothpaste-like consistency and spread it evenly over your mosaic masterpiece. Allow it to set for the recommended time, then gently wipe away the excess grout with a damp sponge. This will reveal the vibrant colors of your sunburst design beneath.
