Paint Chip Hyacinth

Oh, how I love spring bulb flowers!  Tulips and hyacinths are my favorites!

While shopping the other day I saw a these beautiful blue-purple paint chips and thought that we could make a paint chip hyacinth!

The kids took turns punching out 1 1/2 inch circles from the paint chips with a circle punch....



....and then cut the paint chips in half.



With some bright green paint chips they cut out a stem and some leaves.
Then they started gluing their cut outs onto a white piece of cardstock.



Here are their simple and beautiful creations!



Happy Spring!

  1. Great idea! Every time we go to the Hardware store to get something I let my kids pick out a paint chip so we have quite the collection. Great craft idea.

  4. Ah! Just worked it out - paint chips are the colour cards on the paint department - yes? Brilliant idea! I found your great blog via Red Ted Art who thought you might like to link up to the Resource Centre. It is a space for ideas for teachers to share with their children.
