All you need to make your own modern wall art are a few sheets of STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam and your favorite patterned scrapbook paper. You can mix and match whatever patterns and paper designs you like, your guests will be shocked that this project was so easy!

Custom Wall Art Materials:  (Most can be purchased at Dollar Tree or Dollar General)

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam:
  • Three 1″ x 12″ x 36″ sheets
  • Nine 12″ x 12″ sheets scrapbook paper
  • Ribbon, 1″ x 12 yds.
  • Serrated knife and old candle; or, dental floss
  • Thick, white craft glue
  • Straight pins (optional)
  • Nine Sawtooth picture hangers
  • Ruler
  • Sharp pencil

Directions:

  1. Using ruler and pencil, score foam sheet to create three, 12″ x 12″ squares. Wax serrated knife with an old candle. Holding foam sheet firmly on a flat surface, extend one end and cut across score line, using knife like a saw. Or, try dental floss: stand the sheet on its edge, and hold a 20″ length of dental floss along the scored line, positioning one hand at the bottom of the board and the other at the top; draw the dental floss down through the foam sheet along the scored line. Repeat with remaining two foam sheets.
  2. Spread white craft glue on foam square, center 12″ x 12″ paper, and adhere to foam. Repeat, covering all foam squares. Hint- Use a rolling pin to smooth out any lumps and bubbles in the glue.
  3. Pin or glue ribbon around edges.
  4. Glue sawtooth picture hanger to back. For additional hold, insert and glue two straight pins through holes in sawtooth picture hanger.
  5. Let dry before hanging.

  1. What a neat idea, a great way to add some colour to your walls

  2. Love this. So funky looking and inexpensive. Going to show my college daughter this because she is always looking to decorate her place

  3. Help! Glue bubbles everywhere. I tried the rolling pin, but it still dryed with bubbles and it looks weird. Any tips? Maybe a different kind of craft glue ?

    • Hi Kristen,
      I’m sorry, but I don’t recall having that kind of a problem. My guess is that you probably sprayed the glue on too closely and too thickly. If the paper isn’t too light, you might want to try ironing it with a warm (almost hot) iron. You could even put a thin towel over it. Either way, if you’re not happy with what you have you either want to use it or not. 😉
