Wall art

Hi everyone! Today I’m showing how easy it is to make your own wall art with just a few supplies.

For this project you will need:

You will also need:

  • craft knife
  • a frame (could be an old frame that you can re-use)
  • glue and some foam tape

Start by creating the paper gems. For these you need to cut a few strips of paper and glue them on top of each other like a sandwich. To make it easier try to cut the strips in the desired size for your gem. I tried working with a long strip and I can tell you the cutting will take you a looong time, so smaller is better 🙂

 

The next step is to create your layers for the wall art. Trim a few pieces of card to match the width of the frame. I recommend mixing coloured card with glittered card. After trimming your card just start ripping the paper to create a wavy edge. Then all that’s left to do is to assemble everything inside the frame. Use glue and foam tape to glue the paper inside the frame and add a bit of dimension.

The most important thing about making this project is to have fun 🙂 No need to have a sketch before starting just let the paper help you decide how to assemble everything.
