Decorating Ideas

Make Spring-Inspired Home Decor from Stash Supplies

Design by Cathy Blackstone

Decoupaged office-style papers create a neutral background for Cathy's springtime canvas. She pulled paper scraps from her stash for the flower stems and used leftover gems as flower centers.

Create Wall Art from Patterned Paper and Scrapbooking Supplies

Design by Cindy Tobey

Cindy crafted a collage-style home decor item from a collection of heart shapes in her scrapbooking stash. Starting with a 9x12" sheet of plain chipboard, she added blocks of patterned paper and embellished each square of the wall art design.

Create a Baby Home Decor Accent from Chipboard

Design by Leah Fung

For this fun mobile, Leah turned to large chipboard shapes. After adhering papers to both sides of the shapes, she machine-stitched around the edges. She punched holes at the top of each shape and attached rickrack for hanging. Small bows complete the look.

Combine Scrapbooking Supplies and Picture Frames for One-Of-A-Kind Wall Art

Design by Miley Johnson

To make a personalized home decor accent, Miley adhered a couple of picture frames to a mat board covered in patterned paper. She treated the wall hanging like a large scrapbook page, embellishing with large flowers, brads, and bits of fabric and paper. Wood letters painted to match her color scheme finish the design.

DIY Artwork

Canned Art
Don't throw out cans once you've finished their contents -- instead, decorate with them. The shiny metal and ribbed pattern give these wall-mount vases a modern industrial look. Drill holes in the sides of the cans and join them together with bolts. Add a few holes in the top backs for hanging. Use these recycled cans as vases or over a desk for office supplies.

Pretty Paper
Frame scrapbooking paper, available in an array of trendy colors and patterns, for easy and inexpensive artwork. Choose papers that suit your room's color scheme and place them in matching frames for a cohesive display.

Changing Display
Black-and-white papers in exciting patterns are mounted on a narrow magnetic board or bulletin board for an inexpensive and unstudied work of art.
