Happy 2016! With a new year, are you looking to update your home decor? You’re in luck because the wonderful Brittany Jepsen from The House That Lars Built is back with a great DIY tutorial featuring our beautiful Pussy Willow Seaspray wallpaper. What can you make with wallpaper? How about a DIY wallpaper frame? This is a fun tutorial you can easily do with little materials. And obviously, here at Laura Ashley we have the most beautiful wallpaper around! What’s more, we even have 50%* off our wallpaper at the moment so it’s a great excuse to buy some more…! Let’s hear from Brittany herself on how to make a DIY wallpaper frame…
After looking around at leftover wallpaper, I wondered what to make with scraps of wallpaper. Frames of course! Applying the wallpaper to wooden frames would make a wonderful gift and put to use the wallpaper you can’t bear to trash. I find that wallpapering frames can act as a great alternative to wallpapering walls, which I can’t do in my rental. So follow along to see how you can make these delightful frames…
Materials: wood frames, craft knife, scissors, ruler, cutting mat, artwork, wallpaper, glue, pencil, bone folder
Step 1: Place your picture frame face down on the wallpaper and trace around it both in the middle and the outside line of the frame.
Step 2: Cut out the lines with your craft knife and a ruler. I used scissors to finish off the corner because they are rounded.
Step 3: Follow the instructions on your wallpaper paste to adhere it to the wooden frame.
Step 4: Smooth the paper with a bone folder or something flat.
Step 5: Insert your artwork and hang!
Voila! There you have it, an easy crafting project to update any living space. With a craft this easy, you’ll no doubt be tempted to create this yourself. Do you love Brittany’s DIY wallpaper frame? Which wallpaper would you use? Let us know on Twitter @LauraAshleyUK or comment below!
