Craft Tutorial: Paint Chip Garland

Hey y’all! I told you I was going to have more crafts ready! Here’s another one from last semester that can easily be adapted to any color scheme or theme you have going on! I know, I know, it’s yet another paint chip craft, like there aren’t enough on Pinterest. But this one gives such a cute little touch with minimal paint chips, so you don’t have to feel like you’re robbing the hardware section.

Step 1: Gather Materials

-string or twine
-paint chips (I used 4 strips of 7 colors)

Step 2: Cut paint chips into size you want. I just cut the white dividers out.

Step 3: Trace and cut out a triangle shape at the bottom of the rectangle.

Step 4: Align the rectangles on a piece of string or twine. I spaced them evenly by putting three side by side, then removing the middle one. Repeat until all are placed on the twine. I suggest taping as you go so you don’t budge them out of place.

Step 6: Cut string off of spool and hang up!

I hung mine above my whiteboard in my dorm room, and I’m pretty happy with how it turned out! I know the purple is a little low, but I fixed that! I loved the touch of spring color it gave to the plain walls.

If you decide to make a paint chip garland, I would love to see how it came out!
