We painted my son’s room recently and let me tell you that deciding on a color was a huge process. We let him pick the color, but narrowing it down to one color was tougher than we thought it would be (for a few various reasons including the fact that it’s a poorly lit room and we didn’t want to pick a color that would be too dark for the space). But I am happy to say that we did finally pick a color that everyone was happy with, but we ended up with a bunch of paint chips leftover. Because of course when I was at Lowe’s I had to take paint chips in every shade they had in the store….
Anyhow, I felt bad throwing all those leftover paint chips out and figured that there had to be something I could use them for (because obviously I wasn’t bringing them all back). I decided to make some Paint Chip Santa Hats out of them when I had my nephew over. Our Paint Chip Santa Hats were such an easy craft to do together and of course, he loved them.
Paint Chip Santa Hats
Here’s what you need:
- Red toned paint chips (readily available at your local hardware store, Home Depot or Lowe’s for FREE)
- Glue stick
- Cotton balls
Here’s what you do:
1. Use the scissors to cut each paint chip into a triangle shape.
2. Dab glue on one cotton ball for the top of Santa’s hat.
3. Glue 4-5 cotton balls to the rim of Santa’s hat.
It seriously could not be easier to make these Paint Chip Santa Hats and they are great for all age levels! Just remember that little ones might need some help with the scissors.
Hope you enjoy making these Paint Chip Santa Hats as much as we did.
