DIY: Wall Art Using Paint Chips

I decided the apartment needed new wall art that didn't cost me much money. So I headed to Home Depot and picked up a bunch of paint chips. I seriously thought I needed to be stealthy because I was taking around 6 chips of the same color, but now that I think about it... I doubt anyone cares I am taking too many free samples.


And here is my finished piece:

DIY, Wall, Art, Paint, Chips, Wall Art, Paint Chips

Things You Will Need To Do This Yourself: posterboard (for the background/the thing you will paste the chips on), glue (i used tacky glue), scissors, a ruler, a pencil, and lots and lots of paint chips (found at Home Depot, Loews, etc.), a frame

This project cost me zero dollars, since everything I needed was either free or I already had it. So I would definitely want to make another one to go with the one I just made. Here are some other paint chip diy art projects that I would like to try:



Hopefully, I get it done soon. Maybe after I turn in another 2 apps. Also, I finished my attempt on making that MARNI necklace last night. Can't wait to show you all!

  24. Very clever with a great result. One sees a lot of quirky DIY ideas that don't look quite as good as the author thinks they do. This does not have that problem.
