If you are decorating your home, you will very likely have some wallpaper samples or some leftover wallpaper. This can be used to make a quick and easy wall hanging.
Total Time: About 30 minutes
- 1 piece of stiff card or artist's canvas
- 1 pair of scissors
- 1 large scrap piece of wallpaper
- optional length of ribbon or cord for hanging
- Unpack your artist's canvas (or trim your card to the size you want).
- Lay the wallpaper face down and lay your card/canvas in on top.
- Trim the wallpaper, with about 1 to 2 inches all round. If you are using a canvas stretched on a wood frame, you may need to leave a little more.
- Add glue along one edge.
- Check that the design is positioned correctly.
- Fold over and crease the paper on the glued edge.
- Add more glue as necessary. Hold in place until it has stuck firmly.
- Repeat on the opposite edge.
- Fold one side edge without glue.
- Unfold and trim off the corners. Note that if you are using a wood framed canvas, you will need to wrap the paper as if you are wrapping a boxed gift.
- Glue and hold in place until it has stuck firmly. Repeat on the opposite edge
- Glue the ribbon or cord in place for hanging.
- If you are not using a ribbon or cord you can use sticky removable tack. Or for a wood frame it can be hung directly on a nail.

I have a lot of wallpaper left over from building our house, so I've used it to line shelves in the pantry and for bathroom drawers.
