Paint Chip Christmas Trees

Paint Chips are available in a wonderful array of colors. This Christmas Tree is created by cutting up a variety of green shades into tiny pieces and then making a christmas tree collage. Requires a bit of patience and dexterity, so probably not the best project for the youngest kids.
