Home Depot's Lime Green Mickey Paint Chips

Are these hard to find everywhere??? OK Central California Disser- fess up!!!! I went to the Home Depot in town and almost all of the lime green Mickey paint chips were gone. I was kind of surprised. I have 4 heads to decorate with for Christmas. I don't know if they'll get anymore in before we leave for WDW. Now I will have to sparingly use them! Anyone else having problems finding them???
PS I wonder if Home Depot wonders why lime green Mickeys are so popular??

Talking

Is there a cabinet door under the paint chips display? If so, see if it opens, that is where the "supply" of paint chips are, I did this at my Home Depot, and just filled up the slot and took about 10 for myself.

Please tell me the use of the Lime Green Mickey Heads....
I know that the lime green signifies that it is a fellow DISer...but not sure of any other significance?

Yes, Alien Green is the official Disney name for the paint color, but it is basically "lime" green to most people.

Photnut, I'm not a very good person to answer your question, as this will be my first time to use them. I'm pretty new to this web site as you can see by my join date, but I sure have learned alot these last few months. This site has been great for everything. Anyways, other DISers have used them for luggage tags, backpack tags and so on. We are going to be there over Christmas and I wanted to use them for decorations. I wanted to have a wreath on the door with the lime green Mickey heads and berries or something. I also thought it would be cute to hang them with some garland I picked up at K-mart. The garland has metallic multi-colored dots hanging down and I thought the Mickey heads would fit right in with it. I want to string that across my window with lights. I even thought I'd add one to my purse. Do my kids think I'm nuts?? Yes, but I'm having fun. And this is what Disney is all about. FUN, FUN, FUN!!!

Wink This is what I do with them....

I staple 2 together, and put my mailing label on them, punch a whole, tie a lime green ribbon to it, and put it on my luggage and fanny pack.

I've got plenty of them left over from our last trip. If you want them, they are yours! Please send me a PM with an address and I will be more than happy to mail them to you. I've got both Alien Green and Sonic Boom!

I cut out a black square the same size as the paint chip.........peel the mickey head off the home depot paint chip......glue it to the black square.....cut out a square the same color as the Mickey head I am using........glue it to the back....round the edges and place my name, phone number and hotel information on it and laminate it. I don't use the green, however. I use whatever color strikes my fancy at the moment. I truly do it to mark which pieces of luggage are mine since everybody and their dog has black American Tourister and Samsonite Luggage.

Thanks for your suggestion. I think I will go back and look underneath the cabinet and then try another store also.
Tiberius and TiggerDaisy- Thanks for your offer. I will contact you if I can't find anymore. So sweet of you to offer to send them. Thanks again!!!
Everybody else- thanks for more great ideas!!

How big are these heads usually? I was thinking about putting on in my button to clip to my bag.
