Grab an old frame and some chips left over from a recent painting project to make this unique ombre paint chip art. It’s budget friendly!
I’m pretty obsessed with making my own wall art. Especially when it involves repurposed vintage frames and pretty colors. Geometric shapes are an absolute favorite right now.
As we give our living room a little makeover, my obsession is being fueled to the max. Enter in this sweet little project: paint chip art for your wall.
DIY Paint Chip Art
- Thin piece of cardboard or poster board
- Banner paper punch
- Paint chips
- Glue stick
- Frame (optional)
If you are going to frame your work, take the glass out and clean it on both sides. Trace the shape of the glass onto the cardboard. Cut out the piece.
Using the punch, cut out a couple of pieces of each color. I wanted to try and create a little ombre action, so I tried to plan out how the color pieces will lay once glued.
Glue the first piece down. Overlay the second color piece but glue it about halfway down the first piece. This creates a cool arrow look.
Do that all the way across your cardboard piece. When you get to the next line, face the pieces going the opposite way.
Now that all of your pieces are down, the pattern is starting to become clear. Turn it around and use your scissors to trim.
Pop it into the frame and there you have it! A super cool customized piece for any room. This would be really cute with nursery colors for a little baby’s room.
Perfect for a gallery wall as well! I think my next one will be a monochrome theme. See, I told you I’m obsessed!
