Paint chip bunting artwork

Just because I don't have enough to do (haha) and I was feeling inspired I wanted to make use of all those paint charts we no longer needed from repainting B2s nursery.

My original idea for this room was a neutral wall colour with lots of bright pops of colour to make it fun. I have seen a few of this kind of thing on the net so I'm not even going to pretend that I came up with the idea all on my own but this is my version using paint chips to make bunting canvases.

I am pretty sure I saw the original idea here if you would like to take a look at a different version

I picked these little square canvases up at a 2$ shop and they have been sitting around the house for a while waiting for something magical to happen to them.

Once I worked out a good shape for the individual bunting flags, I used one as a template to cut out a nice colourful pile of them.

Once I decided on a layout I was happy with, out came my sharpie to draw in the bunting string.

In hindsight, I think I actually preferred the look without the sharpie line but I am not unhappy with how it looks.

Once my line was in place it make it easy to act as a guide to place my glue blobs to stick on the flags. I found it was easier to add the glue directly to the canvas and slide the flag into position than to glue the flag and then stick it down.

This is the end result!

Don't they look cute all ready to hang?
