I’ve got a fun craft/project for you today. I know you have stacks of paint chits hanging around from when you were trying to pick colours for your house. Here’s how to turn those paint chits into an easy piece of art!
Here’s What You Need
– art canvas (I got mine at the Dollar Store)
– Paint chits (whatever colours your heart desires) – Mine were from Home Depot
– Stamp punch (I got mine at Michael’s)
– Adhesive foam circles (also from Michael’s)
Here’s What You Do:
– Paint your canvas the colour of your choice (I painted it Benjamin Moore – November Skies). You can also keep your canvas white if you wish.
– Punch tons of shapes out of the paint chits using your punch stamp. This process was actually really quick, I punched out the stars while watching tv one night. Super easy!
Place an adhesive foam sticker on the back of each star
Stick the star to the canvas. I just eyeballed it to make sure the stars were straight. Continue until you fill the canvas
An easy, simple and cute art project. I have this in my boys’ bedroom. You could make this for anywhere in your house with different kinds of shapes. It would look cute in a group of four canvases in an office or kitchen!
This is also a great activity to do with your kids. Here is our big guy’s creation 🙂
Keep It Beautiful.
Very cute yet simple! Thanks for sharing!
what a great idea – thanks for the inspiration!
Very pretty! However, I have read (and spoken to!) a few different paint store owners and this is something they hate! Not to be a downer, but I think it is dishonest to take (steal!) so many paint chips. Paint chips cost the store owner money, with the cost then filtering down to the consumer. In the above picture, it appears that there are 20-30 different paint chip strips (many the same?). I guess I am a little taken aback.
While in Michael’s craft store buying the other supplies, why not pick up a pack of beautiful, colourful card stock or scrap booking paper?
What a great idea! I am definitely going to do this! Thanks for sharing!
Definitely something to do on a rainy day
this is very cool!
These look really neat! Thanks
I would do this project with discontinued paint chips. That’s for the idea!
Thanks for the inspiration,we painted all downstairs this spring and I have lots of these around.Will do this
very cute & easy little kids won’t get bored
This was so much fun
What a great craft to do with the older grandkids
I think this is something my kids would really enjoy! Thanks for sharing!
The kids enjoyed making those
Such a cute craft and who doesn’t have paint chips floating around! This idea opens up all sorts of other ideas for paint chips as well!
I love crafts that kids love and it keeps them busy too.
I have never seen this before, its so cute and great for kids to do and hang on their bedroom wall.
