Recently we painted our living room, and during our planning, we had amassed dozens and dozens of paint chip strips. After we had FINALLY decided on a color, these cheery and bright paint chips just sat there on my desk, collecting dust. But then it hit me: This was an upcycling opportunity if I ever saw one! And you know what? I was surprised by how many awesome paint chip crafts there are out there, including oodles that are easy to do with the kids.
