5 DIY Projects with Paint Chips

Have you ever been itching to do some sort of creative arts project but, for whatever reason, didn’t? Maybe purchasing supplies wasn’t in the budget, or specific ideas were scarce, or time was limited, or color options were a challenge. If this has been you in the past, may I suggest using paint chips as an excellent resource for an artistic project? They’re free, they’re colorful (hello, every color under the sun!), they’re easy to pull out and put away as needed, and there are a bazillion ways to use them. Here are just five to get your creative juices flowing so you, too, can add personality and individuality into your space:


Here, a huge variety of colored paint chips were circle-punched and overlayed, like fish scales, on a red background. The effect is modern and abstract and impressive. Leaving a wide strip of unadorned red here helps to define the artwork and give the paint chips some visual “breathing room.” The graphic punch of color by this artwork overall is fantastic, particularly in this neutral-heavy space.{found on lansdownelife}.

5 Ways to Decorate with Fabric Scraps

Many of us have them. Boxes, shelves, tubs, drawers full of fabric scraps. There’s something about the fabric scrap that says, “Please don’t throw me out! I’ll be perfect for something you’re doing… someday.” And we keep the scraps and buy more fabric to use on other projects that in turn create more pleading scraps. And the cycle continues, project after project, until our fabric storage is literally bursting at the seams. Sound familiar? (Oh, please say this sounds familiar! Don’t let me be the only one!)

The good news is, there are clever and chic and creative ways to use said fabric scraps in ways that beautify our surroundings and free up some space. Consider the following:


How about this wall vignette using an embroidery hoop collection filled with vintage-inspired fabrics? I adore this sweet grouping, especially when paired with the vintage suitcases and sky blue vintage fan. Quite a delightful nook. I would like to see the hoops lowered to actual eye height (and to work a little more closely with the other items), but this is a lovely use of fabric bits.

5 DIY Front-Door Wreaths

With guests coming and going, parties large and small, friends and family gathering, our front doors get a lot of use at this time of year. What better way to set the stage for and welcome guests to your home than having a cheery holiday wreath on your front door? There are many lovely pre-made wreaths on the market, of course, but if you’re like me, you want to create your own personalized hanging. Lucky for all of use, many sources of DIY inspiration abound. Like these:

We’ve all seen versions of this classic ornament wreath. The colors, size, width, or sheen may vary from wreath to wreath, but this idea will probably never go out of style. Bonus: It’s not hard to do! Simply cover a straw wreath in felt and hot glue ornaments of varying sizes (and, in this case, colors) to the felt. Hang and enjoy the holidays. I love the simplicity of this project and the HUGE bang for your décor buck.
