As a broke college student, I am a big fan of crafting on a budget. The trend of paint chip crafts is one that keeps the budget low and the results high. Though it’s not cool to clear out the whole paint sample section of your local hardware store, grabbing a few samples for crafting every once in a while is an acceptable practice. Especially when the results look this good. Check out some of my favorite crafts with this technique.
Paint Chip Bunting – Think Crafts
This paint chip bunting is perfect for any occasion. Though the rainbow colors are a great option, using event specific colors could also be a great option. I plan to make one for the “Football Sundays” I’m currently having to attend, because the best way to approach football is with crafts.
In Which I Hop on Three Bandwagons Simultaneously – Ellementary Homes
Creating ombre has never been easier when the colors are already laid out for you. This paint chip wall art is perfect for any room and interesting without being overwhelming. It would also be a great border for any photo.
Paint Sample Coasters – 645 workshop
Though there are many coaster tutorials out there, I can’t help but enjoy the simplicity of these coasters. I’m a fan of using multiple colors for these and the lines create a geometric effect.
How to Make Boxes from Paint Swatches – How About Orange
These little boxes are perfect for small gifts and look great mixed and matched with different colors. If you put a gift and these boxes you can be assured the box will be kept as well. Using them to organize your desk would be another great option.
Paint Chip Sample Table Makeover – minimoz
Bring some color to an old table with this incredibly inexpensive design. I love the ombre effect of each color. This would be great in a children’s room or as crafting table.
