As you all know, we are getting ready to move in the fall. Our new home is still under construction & we have so many decisions still to make. We have cabinets & counter tops to pick out, we need to decide on new appliances & we have to figure out what color paint we want on all of our walls. I have been having a difficult time picking out our paint colors. Every time I think that I have picked the colors that I want, I change my mind & collect more samples. I have paint swatches everywhere. After a lot of thought, I think that I finally came to a decision.
Now that I have chosen my colors, I was left with a lot of leftover samples.
Instead of throwing out all of those samples, we put them to good use. Tree crafts are one of our favorites to make because they are so pretty & simple, so we chose to make a fall tree.
Paint Chip Mosaic Fall Tree Craft
Cut a trunk & branches out of brown paint samples & glue to a piece of paper.
Cut paint samples into simple leaf shapes.
Glue the leaves on & around the trunk.
Cut out different shapes & sizes of the blue & glue them around the leaves. I had to help my daughter with this part.
Cut out different shapes & sizes in green as well & then glue to the bottom of the picture to make grass.
NOTE: Because the chips are so rigid, they tend to curl up a bit. Try weighing down your finished project with a book if your chips curl up too much. After a few minutes they will set in place.
