Pin into Action! (02)

Today I tackled a simple project to re-use some paint chips that I had laying around!
The Paint Chips Garland:
I had pinned this just few days ago and I gave it my try, now I have a new member for my "Pins into Actions" board...and if you are on Pinterest you know how satisfatory that can be.

The original (click on Pinterest image to be brought to the tutorial):

My take:

Simplifying: punch (I only had a little heart punch, nicer if you have a medium size) a bunch of hearts from your paint chips, I kept them close to our kitchen colour scheme, picking the colours you like best is half the fun! Then "sew" them by hand in a little garland, fix your garland wherever you prefer with tape or little nails, pins or between two frames like in my case (I always felt the two little paintings where really looking a bit sad like that, so I love the result).

Do you like? Will you give it a try yourself?
It's so "petit", I love it :)
