Wrapping Paper Art II


Apologies for the late post this week - we've had some technical issues with Blogger.

I’m trying to finish off my bathroom at the moment, and I hope to be able to show you my progress next week! So this week (in an effort to get everything done for the bathroom) I finished off some simple art for the bathroom wall.

This is another version of my original Wrapping Paper Art and I just love how simple this is... not to mention what an impact it can make.

This art cost me less than $2 in total as I only had to buy the wrapping paper and I already had a spare frame.

I simply cut the paper to size and taped it down inside the matt.

It’s the easiest art you will ever do and its so cheap to change whenever you tire of it.

I hope you are enjoying your weekend!

Wrapping Paper Art


I'm in the process of slowly doing up my 1960s house. It's taking a while, but I'm really enjoying doing a lot of it myself. 

One challenge that has been difficult though is finding art for my walls at an affordable price. I've bought a few things off etsy, made a few things myself and been lucky enough to already have a few great pieces. 

But I had one wall on the landing, outside all the bedrooms I just couldn't find the right piece for. Then, about 4 months ago I was out browsing the shops with friends and found the most lovely wrapping paper - and I had a brilliant idea - why don't I just frame the wrapping paper as my 'art'.

I mean, it's so lovely, it's cheap and really, if I get sick of it it's only going to cost me another $5 for more wrapping paper and I can just change it over!!!!

The frame is from ikea and it's a perspex sheet instead of glass, which I think I prefer - it makes the frame so much lighter to hang and also means if it were to fall off the wall then there won't be a major disaster to clean up!

Happy creating!
