Sharing is caring!

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! I originally published this post a couple of years ago, but in celebration of National Craft month, I thought I would share it again. Now more than ever, I think it is important to take some time away from all things electronic and just make something!

Paint chips come in so many great colors and they really are nice for crafting. You can also use colored card stock. These make fun place card name tags and table signs for parties too!

Teen Craft ideas

A few years ago Steph from Crafting In the Rain organized an awesome roundup of crafts from A – Z. My letter was “O” and my craft was this simple  Ombre Paint Chip sign to welcome Spring. It is the perfect craft to make to repurpose a photo frame.

Spring will be here in just a couple of weeks and I am so excited about it!

Teen Craft ideas

 

To start, you need the following supplies:

  • Paint chips (number depends on words)
  • mini clothespins (number depends on words)
  • craft punch
  • string
  • picture frame
  • 1 piece card stock to fit in the 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.
