From the blogger: "Even though I live in the desert surrounded by cactus and year-round sunscreen use, I'm a beach lover at heart. When my husband brought home a couple small vintage frames, I knew exactly the type of art I'd fill them with. Beach, of course! So when on a recent trip to the hardware store, I snagged a handful of free color paint samples and set to work making some beach-themed (free) artwork. It probably took about 10 minutes. More time to soak in the sand and sea."
Estimated CostUnder $10
Time to CompleteUnder an hour
Primary TechniqueHome Decor
- Piece of cardstock
- Glue stick

DIY Project Instructions
Cut a piece of sturdy cardstock to fit the size of the frame.
This beach art was going to be a simple sand and sea view. Start by ripping a strip of tan paint chip.
Repeat the same but with various shades of blue paint chips.
Once you like the layout (and it resembles the sand and sea), use a glue stick to secure them to the cardstock.
Use scissors to cut off any excess paint chips.
Insert the free paint chip art into the frame.

This is very ingenious and practical. The author lives in a desert-like place yet she still gets to enjoy the beach by surrounding herself with her work of art made of pictures of the beach and seascapes. Great handiwork!

What a great idea! And so simple. It is one of those projects where I say, "Why didn't I think of that?" Well I didn't but I am glad someone else did. Sometimes the simplest projects are the best. The frame really adds to it as well. You can always find lovely frames like that in a thrift store. Thank you for the pattern.

I can't believe it but I actually have all the ingredients for this project in my possession at the present time! That just doesn't happen so this project is definitely meant to be! I agree with Gknupp that I'll probably go with white frames because they match my style better. These would look perfect in a sunroom with wicker furniture!

Gah! These are SO cute and you know what? I just picked up a bunch of paint samples a few weeks ago when I was buying some paint at my local hardware store. I would use different frames-maybe white frames to match my decor. This would also make a great summertime gift for campers-my mom would appreciate this as my parents camp right on Lake Michigan! Thanks for the great idea-adding it to my file for use, soon!
