Make Patriotic Paint Chip Art

Paint chip art has so many possibilities – and since the chips come in every shade and hue imaginable, they’re a great medium for creating custom projects that match any decor or theme. Over at Positively Splendid, Megan used a stack of red and blue samples punched into stars and arranged in various patterns to create some fun, patriotic framed artwork. Her instructions even include easy-to-follow diagrams demonstrating the different ways she placed the stars together to make different looks. Use one of her designs, or if you’re feeling extra creative, play around with different arrangements and come up with your own unique spin on the project! [how to make patriotic paint chip art]
