Paint Chip Easter Garland

It’s spring break here in Northern Virginia and Her Cuteness is home all week. I was looking for projects and fun activities to do with her this week when I stumbled on this lovely Easter garland. I couldn’t resist the simplicity of it, plus, I am a sucker for color, so this morning Nia and I set out to make a couple of those. One for our drab apartment entrance door and the second for the door to Nia’s room. All you need are scissors, paint chips, dental floss, time and patience and voila, you get a splash of color to brighten up your day.

You can find detailed instructions on how to make it at Modern Parents Messy Kids.



  1. That is such a cute idea! Sorry for the random-comment-by-stranger, but my friend posted your link on their blog today and being a FS family member, I had to hop on over and check out your blog. It's very cute!

  2. It's a cute garland...and I like that website you linked to as well. I have to say though, when I read "Paint Chip Easter Garland," I had visions of kids gnawing lead-filled paint shavings off an Easter garland made somewhere without lead-paint restrictions (or perhaps 50 years ago). In any case, it was a funny mental image, but it would not have been a funny blog.
