DIY Pantone wall art

I’ve spent the past week pretty much glued to my new jigsaw and workbench, kindly sent to me by the guys over at FFX. Holy guacamole I LOVE them. It’s like a whole new world of crafting and DIY has been unlocked! One of the very first jigsaw projects I’ve embarked on is this set of DIY…
