I had seen artwork done using paint chips in the past like this one from Sherry at Young House Love:
And since I had one more of the poster frames remaining that I picked up on super clearance from Target awhile back (I used them here and here and here already.), I figured we would put our leftover paint chips to work to create some free art!
Lucky and I cut up little rectangles from the paint chips until we had a big ol' pile of them.
Then I lined them all up in a pattern I liked:
Next, I used double sided tape to stick them to the cardboard that came with the mat and here is the end result:
I love the patchwork look and the color scheme. I keep going back to blue, green and brown. I just love those colors together.
Frame $4.24 (Target Clearance)
Mat: $5 (Michael's with coupon 18" x 24" size)
