Who would’ve have thought that such simple things could lead to such great craft projects? And the best part is, they’re free! (I might feel the tiniest bit bad about taking them if I’m not actually buying paint, but I think I’ll get over the guilt when I realize how cute my craft is! Am I a terrible person?)

Paint chip jewelery? I never would have guessed, but these paint chip earrings are seriously cute! I found this idea and the tutorial from Minted Strawberry.

12. Gift Tags
Aren’t these cute? Just make a bunch at one time and then throughout the year when you need to give a gift just grab a tag with the color that matches! Found on Popsugar.
13. Journal Covers
I love these cute journals! I found them on Etsy, but they are no longer available to buy. As long as you have a way to bind them they would be simple to make!
Don’t you want to try some of these now?! Time to raid Lowe’s or Home Depot! Just buy a candy bar or something on your way out so you don’t feel as guilty 😉
