The eye popping wall art above is bold and bright, and features three 12” x 12” scrapbook papers on each 1” x 12” x 36” sheet of STYROFOAM Brand Foam. Below, we have the exact same set up but we’ve changed out the papers for a more mellow look, and we’ve used nine, 1” x 12” x 12” squares of STYROFOAM Brand Foam. Same idea, two very different looks! Both super fast to make.
Here’s another presto-change-o look. The black and white scrapbook papers have vivid, contemporary designs that really “pop.”
If you prefer warmer hues, take a look at our decorating scheme below.
If you’re just looking to change up a corner or other small space in your home, you can make smaller scale wall art. Below, we’ve used 1” x 12” x 12” squares of STYROFOAM Brand Foam, and grouped them in pairs on shelving. Both of these are super-simple to make, and the look you choose is up to you.
You can make any of these wall art ideas for your home for less than $50 and in just a few hours – I know, because I made all of these myself. Each photo links to the step-by-step instructions, so you can follow along. HINT: We’ve found that Yes! Paste works great to adhere the paper to the foam with minimal moisture and wrinkling.
Which look do you like? Will you try this with your favorite scrapbook papers?
