If you’ve never heard of Pantone, they are the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries. When it comes to color, this group knows what they are doing. Each year they select a “color of the year,” and this year it is Tangerine Tango, a red-y shade of orange. Given that the color of the year is orange, and that one of my favorite blogs in the world is How About Orange, I thought it time to share some orange crafts. They are all different shades of orange, but orange nonetheless. If you love orange DIY action, click through the jump!
