Ombre Paint Chip Spring Art

Paint chip art is one of my favorite types of crafts. Why because it is simple and paint chips are a really cheap craft supply!

In celebration of National Craft month, Steph from Crafting In the Rain organized an awesome round up of crafts from A – Z. My letter is “O” and my craft is this simple to make Ombre Paint Chip Spring sign.

Spring Paint Chip Art

To start, you need the following:

  • Paint chips (number depends on words)
  • mini clothespins (number depends on words)
  • craft punch
  • string
  • picture frame
  • 1 piece card stock to fit in frame
  • letter stickers or decorative marker

Next, plan out what your saying will be. I picked Happy Spring. The longer your saying, the smaller you will want your punched chips to be and/or the larger the frame you will need. You will see what I mean…

I picked these paint chips because I liked the pastels for spring.

What can you make with paint chips

 

I used a flower punch to punch out each chip.

Then I took my sticker letters and attached one to each chip. You can write with a marker too, but I had some extra letter stickers I decided to use.

Next, I measured a string about 5 inches longer than my frame. I pinned each cutout letter to the string.

Next, I repeated the process with a second string.

Next, I taped the ends of the strings on the back of the cardstock. Then I placed it in the frame.
