Paint Chip Easter Garland + Easter Giveaway/Pantone Egg Contest

We’ve seen the creative use of paint and pantone chips for many fun projects over the last few years.  It first started with David Stark’s genius idea of using 15,000 paint chips to blanket an entire venue for the American Patrons of Tate Artist’s Dinner {you can take a peek here}.  More recently, we’ve seen pantone treats like these cookies and these cupcakes.  We’ve even seen pantone chip magnets, dishes, and mugs lately.  So we were tickled pink {and yellow, blue, purple} when we saw this fun use of paint chips for a DIY Easter egg garland by Steph of Modern Parents Messy Kids. Check out some cool pictures below and get the full diy here.

We think that this idea can extend to decorating Easter eggs.  Who is up for the challenge?  Send us pictures of your pantone Easter eggs to [email protected] by next Tuesday, April 12th.  The best entry will be featured here next week and will get a special Easter prize.  Who’s in?

    Wow. No wonder paint is so expensive. Think folks, when you take lots of chips the cost has to come out somewhere and we all pay. Just like we all pay higher postage because of the folks who use 5 Tyvek envelopes as packing material for each of their ebay sales. It is a very cute idea, but if hundreds of people do it and come up with future projects using the “free” chips, we all pay.
