Let me show you how fun this is!
You don’t need much for this project! Here’s your supply list:
- A bunch of paint samples in whatever color scheme you want; I wanted a patriotic-themed display so I grabbed a bunch of red and blue hues.
- A star-shaped punch, an e-cutter or scissors (and a star template would be handy if you’re doing this by hand)
- Craft glue
- Scissors and/or paper cutter
- Frames – I used old frames and spray painted them to match!
Now it’s tine to take a break from the stars to work on the border. Using the un-used edges of your paint chips, cut down a bunch of 1/4″ “matchsticks” with a paper cutter or scissors.
But I thought it created much more interest with two stars removed from every row to create neat little windows. Amazing how the removal of two stars totally changes the pattern, huh?!?
