Linky Love: Paint Chip Crafts Edition

Paint Chip LL - COLLAGE

Happy Saturday crafty pals!  As of late, I have been hoarding collecting paint chips from my local hardware store.  The people at the counter probably think I'm crazy as I haphazardly select random color samples, but I've been doing it for a reason.  Next week, you'll see a new and original way I've come up with to use paint chips to decorate your home, but until then, here are some other fun paint chip projects.

So, while the husband is spending countless hours in the hardware store this weekend, instead of tapping your foot and asking "are we done yet", go pick out some fun paint chips and be inspired.  You'll be glad you did!

  1. Love the inspiration! I, too, have a pile of these things, and have played around with them, but I like your link ideas. :)

  2. Honestly, I think it's pretty wasteful to grab something like that with intent of crafting with it, if you don't actually want it for painting your house. It's stealing from people who do, and those things are not free for the store owners.

  3. Love the ideas however I do have a problem with using the paint samples. Make your own paint samples with scrap paint you have. Don't take those from stores that provide them as a help to when I need to paint.

  5. P.S. This is a great article on the "ethics" of using paint chips (if you don't already have a stockpile of them from when you are trying to decide what colors to paint your entire house!).

  6. I think using paint chips for amazing crafts and works of art is a wonderful idea! I doesn't matter if you take them to buy paint or make something wonderful to add your home
