Paint Chip Art


Yep, I did it.  Got some more free art supplies at the orange store.  This time I got some paint chips for a simple art project.  I showed you some examples last week.  I decided to make my own.

Here are my paint chips.  They are varying shades of blue.



I cut them into 1 inch strips.  The pattern I chose was chevron.  I just started laying them in a zig zag pattern until the colors were where I wanted them.  Once I figured that out, I glued them on.


Stick it in the frame and hang it.  I haven't hung mine yet. 



Did you try any paint chip art yet?

  9. That is so pretty. The herringbone pattern just makes the project! It would be so nice hung in a cluster with a few other colors.

  12. Awesome! We live in a rental and we can't paint the walls, but I've been looking for ideas to bring in color and this is perfect! I can get the chips for free and the frame cost is minimal at Michaels. Thanks for posting - I found you at No Minimalist Here.

  14. I love this! I have a pretty low tolerance {aka limited patience} for DIY projects unless they are super easy and with a good chance of turning out well. I'm pinning it now! :)

  24. Hi,

    So where will you be hanging your paint chip art? I love the chevron pattern especially against that wall paper.

    We're having our inaugural Eat Make Grow Blog Hop. We are looking for folks to link up who want to share what they have been eating with their families, growing in their gardens or making with all their creative impulses. If you're interested, I hope you'll hop on over and link up a couple of your posts. It's a way for you to grow your readership and find other like minded mamas.

    Hope to see you there,

    Foy
