An Easy Peasy, Pretty DIY: Paint Chip Magnets


Inspired by our current stylebook, Fashion from the ‘Art’, this super simple DIY will bring out your true colors as an artist!

You know how easy this is? First off, you only need three things: lots of those free paint chip samples from your local paint store, your favorite pair of scissors, and adhesive magnet sheets, which you can find at a craft or office supply store. Second, all you need is a few minutes or an afternoon, since this is a low-commitment craft. (Oh, and if you have a furry friend like we do in the video, that might help, too.)

Happy crafting!

    Oh that is seriously cute!

    I just bought some magnet tape (looks like sticky tape but it’s magnetic) and I’ve been putting it on all my photos.
    But this would be great to add filler colours to photo collages.

      That’s a great idea! We’d love to see pics of that project on our Facebook or Twitter! 🙂
