Maybe you’ve been painting in your home recently. Or maybe you’re like me and take a handful of paint chips whenever you run across them in the hardware store. (Hey, they make great bookmarks!) Whatever the case, today’s mission is to show you how to use those colorful strips in ways you’ve never imagined. The best part? You can probably knock these crafts out in an afternoon or less!
Pretty up a plain cabinet or table with paint chips in a pattern like this example from TLC Parentables. Simply lay out the design of your choice, then place a pre-cut pane of glass or plexiglass on top of your work. Ta-da!
Paint chip bunting is simple to make, especially if you have hole punches in various shapes. This rainbow of flowers comes from Little Bit Funky and matches the palette and theme of the other artwork around it for a cohesive look.
I guess Jessica over at How About Orange was on a paint chip kick, which is lucky for us, because she also posted this rad paint chip wall art tutorial. The colors she selected make the triangles feel so fresh. If circles are more you, take a look at this piece over on The Crafty Scientist which has a lovely, scalloped/fish-scale effect.
So, which craft was the real hero today? And do you have any requests or suggestions for this Designer MacGyver? Spill ‘em in the comments!
