Let's make DIY Modern Paint Chip Wall Art

Step 1

Begin by creating your pixelized artwork. Feel free to print out the image above if you’d like to use Girl with a Pearl Earring as your inspiration. Or bring any other image into Photoshop and click on the Filter menu.

Step 2

Next, tape a large piece of kraft paper to the wall using blue painter’s tape.

Step 3

Next, cut all of your paint chips into four equal sized pieces. You’ll also want to tape your printout to the wall so you can reference it easily throughout the process.

Step 4

Begin working from a center point outward – I chose the white of the eye to start with. Use the glue stick to begin attaching squares using colors that correspond with the squares on your printout.

Step 5

Work outward, continuing to glue squares into their corresponding spot. It is extremely helpful to check off the squares on the printout as you glue them onto the kraft paper.
