Thrifty Thursday: FREE Paint Chip Artwork-DIY

Good Morning! I just have a quick post today, but a good one, and best of all a THRIFTY one! 
Paint Chip Artwork
Thrifty Thursday - Paint Chip Artwork
FREE DIY Project!
 It was inspired by a frame I got at Goodwill. I stained it to a darker wood color and was looking for something to put in it, something more than just a picture, but something that didn’t cost money. So I did what any other person would do, turned to pinterest, of course! Haha. I found a project, then put a little twist on it. For this project all you need is a printed picture (black and white work best). I chose one from my wedding day! Here is a list of other items you’ll need.
1. Frame
2. Printed Picture (preferably black and white)
3. Various color themed paint chips
4. Shaped hole puncher (I chose a heart one that I got from Michael’s for 50% off)

Next comes the most tedious part, hole punching your paint chips. Once you do that, arrange your hole punched paint chips in the color order you’d like to use them and lay them out on your picture, in whatever pattern you’d like. Use a little bit of glue (I used Clear Gel Tacky Glue) and stick them on your picture. Here is how mine turned out! I love it, I hope you do to.

This is a simple DIY project that took hardly any time, but adds a fun twist to just a plain picture in a frame. Let me know what you think, and lets us know if you're going to give it a try. I hope you have a fabulous day! 
Thank you for all of your support and encouragement,
