Hi Everyone! I'm back today to share some home decor projects created with patterned paper. Pretty paper is an easy, cheap way to decorate and personalize your living space. You can dress up frames, canvases, printer's trays, letters or anything you can think of with patterned paper. Pinterest is an amazing source of inspiration for home decor projects, and I have a pin board filled with all kinds of things that I'd like to make to jazz up my house. Sometimes I copy the pins just as they are, but more often I change up the design to make it my own.
Frames are super easy to decorate and alter with patterned paper. You can cut paper to replace the photo mat in glass covered frames, you can create your own mats to transform a vintage frame into art, or you can frame a beautiful piece of handmade art.
Sarah created this amazing alphabet art using patterned paper and QuicKutz dies. Seriously gorgeous!
You can also use 12x12 frames to turn your scrapbook layouts into wall art, or use vintage supplies to create something new.
Emily S. made some super cute frames to decorate her space as well:
Finally, if your life is as crazy and chaotic as mine, you can provide a little order with a large 18x24 inch frame, some patterned paper, letter stickers and a dry erase marker.
Canvases are a quick and easy way to decorate your space. I made this very simple art for my youngest daughter's bedroom with a pre-made 18x24 canvas, patterned paper, ribbon, a button, and mod podge.
Sarah created these awesome pixilated canvases for her son's room with a square punch and patterned paper:
Christa created this fun spring piece with patterned paper and bright embellishments:
There are no shortage of letters of every size available at craft stores. Adding patterned paper to wood, plastic, or chipboard letters with a little mod podge is a super easy way to turn letters into home decor.
Lisa O. created these gorgeous printer's trays with pretty paper and other embellishments. Printer's trays are an easy way to give your home a serious wow factor.
If your home is feeling a little bland and you are on a budget, grab some pretty paper and create something fun and easy to spruce up your space! I'll be back tomorrow with some party decorations made with patterned paper.
