Paint chip samples and swatches are helpful when considering color options for a home painting project. They are available at home improvement stores in an array of shapes, colors, and sizes to help choose what color is best for the project.
The best part about paint chip samples and swatches they are FREE! There really isn’t a rule to how many swatches you can help yourself to, but by taking handfuls some may feel guilty. So each time you stop off, just take a few or whatever COLOR you are feeling for that day.
If you have a lot of paint chip samples on hand you can use them in a crafty way as decor for your home.
Here are some pictures I discovered online of CRAFTY ways others have used their leftover chips:
Create a Tree using the swatches as the leafs
Sew and patchwork swatches together into a wallet
Disney makes Mickey shaped swatches! This is great for a child’s “Memory Game”
Decorate into greeting or housewarming cards
Cut into circles to make a garland
Piece swatches together for lamp decor
