steal this idea: paint chip easter garland


Around here, we have a thing for holiday decorating. Last week we scouted the latest in Easter décor at some of our favorite stores, but if you’re looking for a crafty, quick and virtually free project for this week, look no further than this adorable paint chip Easter garland tutorial from Modern Parents Messy Kids. I love the simplistic pop of color this could add to a room, but unless I hit the paint store for some new chips, we’re looking at a greige garland strung together with dental floss. Neutrals. So hot right now.

Also, lest we forget, Easter marks the beginning of a very fleeting Peep season, so ready those pots everyone: It’s time for Peeps treats! –Sarah C.

I love this idea. As a designer I always have paint chips lying around what a great way to put them to use. I only wish mine were this colorful. Thanks for sharing.
