Are you glad that wallpaper is back in vogue? I love the look of wallpaper, and the instant style it adds to a room. Though really, it’s not so instant – it takes a lot of time to paper a room (read on for my wallpaper horror story). And, wallpaper can be pretty pricey. If you want to add a wallpaper punch to a room, but don’t want to spend a lot of time or money, how about creating Wallpaper Wall Art? This DIY wall art technique uses less than a roll of paper, and a whole lot less time. Hang three of these DIY wall art panels on a wall, and you get the drama of wallpaper – minus the drama.
Both of these looks showcase wallpaper on 1” x 12” x 36” sheets of STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam. The wall art really packs a punch in either room, don’t you think? And you can see that it works with any style. You’ll find the step-by-step instructions on StyrofoamCrafts.com – just click through the photos or the links.
I’ll share my wallpaper horror story if you share yours. Years ago, I papered my bedroom, finishing up late at night, and I just loved how it looked. Till I turned out the lights and went to bed. As I lay there in the dark, I began to hear a wooshing sound as the wallpaper began falling off the wall, strip by strip! Oh no! I learned the hard way about prepping your walls first.
How about you? Do you have any wallpaper horror stories?
Happy crafting (and decorating!).
