Today I Like ... Paint Chip Crafts

I don't have a lot of patience when it comes to arts and crafts. I could never execute a Seurat-inspired pointillist wall of paint chips, but more power to the folks who can! Paint chips are fabulously versatile and most importantly, free!

If you want to create your own art, but don't have much skill with pencil or paint, try paint chips! If you don't have a printer, but you need stylish escort cards, try paint chips! Need a colorful bunting? Paint chips! But don't take my word for it (bahahah, Lavar Burton reference), check the pictures:

More paint chip art, by Reduce, Reuse, Redecorate.

Another great idea for renters craving color: paint chip walls! From Design Sponge.

Or you can frame the paint chips, as seen here.

Sewn together (or glued), they make great utensil holders, perhaps for an art opening or a kid's party? From Sew Many Ways.

Brilliant and easy escort cards, from Once Wed.

Gosh, just thinking about all the possibilities makes me want to plan a party! How about you? Any other creative uses for paint chips?
