Easy-to-make wallpaper art

Sometimes even just a hint of wallpaper can liven up a room. Whether you're commitment phobic, or you've just discovered a beautiful vintage scrap at the flea market, hanging your paper in a frame means small sections can be rearranged or removed at a moment's notice. Don't like the way the paper looks in your bedroom? Hang it in the kitchen instead.

You need:
• Assorted picture frames
• Wallpaper scraps (enough to fit frames)

• Metal ruler
• X-Acto blade
• Spray paint

Check out a large photo of the finished craft.

To make:
1. Based on the size of your frames, measure and cut out your wallpaper scraps.

Spray paint the frames a complementary color, and set them aside to dry.

Insert your paper into the frames and hang them on a wall, or arrange them along a decorative ledge.
