Since we can't paint the walls in our dorm room, we could always just go get some paint samples...:) Wall Art, Weekend Projects, Wallart, Paintings Swatch, Colors Swatch, Paintsampl, Dorm Rooms, Paintings Chips, Paintings Samples

This is actually a pretty cool way to get some color into a room w/o having to spend a whole lot of money on something! Awesome!
If your looking for cool DIY projects, upcycling, and just plain cool ideas, check out Design*Sponge occasionally! This paint swatch wall may cause some home improvement employees to give you the evil eye, but what's better when you can't make up your mind on a color??
Full instructions. Think of all the different ways you could make these butterflies. Cut Iridescent fabric from template, place wire in middle so you can bend in half, paint raw edges of fabric with clear nail polish or fray check. You could also take thin sheet aluminum from Home center, cut out from template, paint or glue pretty scrap booking paper onto metal. Idea for mobiles
If I could make them small enough I could maybe use one of my old canvases. I'd make the butterflies with paint chips, of course. Maybe I could buy a bigger canvas if they're on sale?
