My friend and I were trying to come up with a fun craft to do at a meeting and I was scouring Pinterest for some Easter Craft Ideas. One that we liked were bunnies cut out of paint chips. The whole thing is another blog post so I won’t get into it but when I got home I thought….hmmm….I wonder what other paint chip projects are out there. So I did another Pinterest search and wowzas. This is an entire world I had been missing out on. Sure, I had done a couple of paint chips cards in the past but nothing that even compares to these things.
5 Ways to Use Paint Chips
1. Make some flowers to create a wreath

AliLilly cut/punched dozens of hears to create flowers then placed them on a cardboard circle to form a wreath. So cute.
2. Punch holes and add some binding to create mini notebooks.

I am a sucker for office products and I love, love, love to make little notebooks and other mini stuff. These would be a good size to carry in your bag and jot down a note now and then. I wanted to link back to the original pin and I believe that is Lollipoop Desgin’s Etsy shop but it looks like this was a pretty old listing and I am not sure she is still open. But, she had the idea and still deserves the credit.
3. Wall Art

Now I am not sure the original piece from Etsy is paint chips but this sure is AMAZING and certainly could be done with paint chips. I love this but don’t think I would have thought of it on my own. Simply gorgeous!
4. Easter Egg Decor

I think what drew me in about these adorable eggs are the colors. These are what I am trying to incorporate into my kitchen and office spaces. So, I love that there are quite a few and they are displayed in this beautiful bow. Perfection.
5. Mini Smash Book

This is another one of those really cute projects. Don’t you love anything mini? I do. Anyway, using paint chips as pages then adding all sorts of fun pictures, doo dads, embellies and fun you can create something really memorable. I love it!
I am really getting inspired by all of the paint chip projects and ideas on Pinterest. You will get to see our Easter paint chip project really soon but I think I will keep this going and add some of my own ideas onto Pinterest. (After I show you of course.)
Thanks so much for stopping by!
