Paint Chip Letters
I recently came across some paint chip art that caught my eye. The process looked a little tedious, but the outcome was so striking. I decided to try some paint chip for my daughter’s new “Big Girl” room.
Instead of framing the art, I used paint chips to make the letters in her name more interesting.
I bought white letters for her nursery 2 years ago from Hobby Lobby and painted them chocolate brown and added ribbon to the back. I wanted to ditch the ribbon and make the plain letters cuter!

Lucky for me, she has a short name! I used lots pf paint chips!
I started by stocking up on several different paint chips in similar shades. With the help of a bottle cap I drew circles on each shade
Once done, I began cutting and cutting…… and cutting!
When I had enough circles to cover the four letters, I started arranging them on the letters. Lighter shades on the top working my way down towards the most saturated color. With the help of glue stick I adhere the paint chips on the letters.
When the glue dried, I used mod podge to deal and give a glossy look to the paint chips
I removed the ribbon and decided to rest the letters on the top of her bookshelf. The dark brown underneath gives the letter a bit of depth.
I think the paint chips create a bit of fun and whimsy for my girl!
From Boring to Interesting!
Thanks for sharing such a cute kids room project. I never knew paint chips are so much fun.
