DIY Wall Décor: Super Easy, Super Cheap, & Super Cool!
How to make super easy, super cheap, and super cool wall décor out of foam and scrapbook paper!
It all started with a problem that a lot of us have....big wall, nothing on it. Well, here's a solution! Create a beautiful customized wall hanging with little money!
What you will need:
9-- 1'x1', 3/4" foam squares
1 roll of 3/4" black ribbon
9--1'x1' scrapbook paper squares
a sponge brush
Go to your local hardware store and get a piece of foam insulation (mine was a light purple in color). The sheet I got was 4'x8' and I had them cut it (Home Depot did it for free)...saves LOTS of hassle. I got 30 1'x1' squares out of the deal for until $10. (Obviously, I only used 9 for this project so I have some to do other ones...)
On one side of the square piece of foam, brush a thin layer of glue using the sponge brush. Then place a piece of scrapbook paper over the top of the glue and press down, securing the paper to the foam. Repeat for all squares.
Then take a square and brush the glue on all edges and place the ribbon onto the glue so none of the foam edges are showing. Repeat for all squares.
Place a 3M picture hanger on each square. (I only used one in the upper middle as the foam is very light).
Place on wall where you want!
And, taa-daa, a beautiful wall décor that takes up that giant empty space! Best thing about it? It's completely customizable so you can pick whatever paper designs match your décor and you can even change them according to the seasons or holidays! Also, with them being so light, no need to hassle with nails, etc! You could also use larger, smaller, more, or less squares depending on your space.
Guaranteed no one will know they are foam and guaranteed everyone will love it!
