Giant Pantone Wall Swatch

We’re back with our favorite babes from across the four corners of the Internet for our quarterly color challenge! We’ve already done orchid, gold, and hot pink, but today it’s all about that sunshine yellow! We love the iconic and graphic look of those Pantone Color swatches. Why not have some giant ones hanging on the wall? This little project is so easy it’s silly, but we love how it packs a big punch of color you’d get from painting a wall, while still having that modern and graphic element. Here’s how you’ll do it:
Make your own giant Pantone Color Swatch

Supplies:

White Poster board (or foam core if you don’t intend on framing it!)

Color poster board – we showed yellow and red in this post!
Chartpak 2 Inch Black Vinyl Letters if you want to add the color name below the Pantone logo Chartpak makes 1/2 inch letters that would be perfect, too!

Glue stick or double sided tape

Make your own giant Pantone Color SwatchSteps:

1. Trim. Start by trimming your board for the frame. Then trim the color poster board to fit over the white leaving about 8 inches of white space for your letters.

2. Stick. Glue the colored poster board onto the foam core. Then, on the white board right underneath where the colored board meets the white, use the letters to spell out Pantone. They are vinyl and came off nice and easy if we misplaced so don’t be afraid!

3. Hang. It’s easy as 1,2,3. Hang it up and enjoy your easy masterpiece!
