Terra Cotta, Apricot, Peanut Brittle, Fireside, Harvest Sun, Poppy….I often wonder who comes up with the names of paint colors? Actually, I think that job might be kind of fun. All the color names I just listed are a sampling (no pun intended, haha) of shades of orange. I think there are lots of clever paint swatch card projects out there, so I tried out one using all orange swatches to make a cute piece of fall decor. Oh, I also enjoy using embroidery hoops, so I incorporated one of those in as well.
First, I gathered up a bunch of paint sample strips, all in fall colors. I also picked up some other colors for a future project while I was at it! To relieve my guilt at picking up lots of free samples, I also purchased something so I wouldn’t look like I was just using the store for the free samples.
Then, as you can see, I did another ring on the inside, this time alternating smaller and larger circles. To fill the empty center, I put one large circle topped off with a smaller one. It kind of looks like a flower to me!
