A color wheel is not only a useful art tool, it’s also great wall art! Paint swatches work well for this project because they are rich in color and super easy to acquire. I used a heart punch, but you can use whatever a paper punch in whatever shape you want. Get creative!

Cut out color wheel.
Collect your paint swatches. I got mine for free from Home Depot, but I’m sure they are available in most hardware stores.
Arrange your samples to make sure you have all the colors that you need. You will need 12 colors: yellow, yellow-orange, orange, red-orange, red, violet-red, violet, blue-violet, blue, blue-green, green, and yellow-green.
Punch out a heart for each color.
Arrange the hearts with the heart tips pointing toward the center of the circle.
Attach them using double sided tape.
Make sure the hearts are all the same distance from the edge.
Now you’ve got a great new color wheel!
Display as is or put in a frame. I put mine in a white, square shadow box.
