Easter Craft Tutorial: Paint Chip Wall Art

3 Comments 19 March 2013

I love the colors of Easter and Spring, and I have always loved incorporating them into my home for decor purposes as Easter draws near. This year Walmart challenged me to make a budget-friendly Easter craft – and I knew that I wanted to use bright spring colors and create something that I could bring out and hang on the walls as decor for years to come.

I ran out to our local Walmart with my daughter and let her choose some of her favorite paint chips. We chose 6 in various shades of the rainbow because the idea was to make this bright and cheery. Of course, paint chips cost us absolutely nothing – so far we are definitely in keeping with the “budget-friendly” craft idea, right? While I was at Walmart, I also picked up a white Canopy brand 8×10 frame with mat and a pack of textured scrapbook paper in pastel colors. The frame was roughly $14 and the entire pack of scrapbook paper cost me $5.

I got to work cutting out a template for both the eggs and the bunny. To assure that they all looked the same, I folded the paint chip in half and drew half of my egg, freehand, before cutting it out so that I could be sure that both sides were symmetrical. I did the same thing with my test bunny, and then I went back in and perfected it to the best of my ability. I used the bottom of the egg as a template for the bottom of the bunny so they would take up a similar amount of space.

Once I had my 5 eggs and my bunny cut out, I arranged them on the piece of scrapbook paper that I had taped under the mat. I spaced them to my liking, then I secured them in place with double-sided tape. From here, I simply placed the mat back in the frame and reassembled it – the perfect Easter Craft, ready to use year after year and all for under $20.

I placed it along the staircase in my home so that it would be easily seen from all parts of the house. I love it – I’m really very pleased with how it came out! Will you be making any crafts this Easter season? What will you create? Share your ideas in the comments!
