Wall Display

I just returned from wonderful spring break with Jasmine and Jordan and her family. Jordan wrote about one of the discoveries we made down south, and now I will tell about something I found up north at my sister's house.
This is a picture of her wall decor. I plan to make one to go over my bed soon.



You need 9  sheets of  coordinating 12" x 12" printed scrapbook paper and about 4 sheets of a coordinating solid color
1/2" thick foam core board-- you will a need 3' square from which you will cut 9  one foot squares
Modpodge and something to hang the finished artwork.

Cut the solid scrapbook paper into 2 1/2" strips. Use these to finish the edges of  foam board squares with Modpodge as shown. Miter the corners.


Use the Modpodge to adhere the printed paper to the front of each square.

Sistor (that's what we call each other--- don't remember why!) used  Monkey Hooks to hang up her artwork. I think I will use Command Poster Strips. I will post a picture when I have mine completed.

That is really nice. I love the colors. They remind me of the coasters I made you for Christmas. I still have some of the crafts she made us growing up :) My personalized piggy bank and door hanger that still has half the "e" missing. Miss her!

Lovely piece of wall art.
I like that you can change it up seasonally if you wish and not spend an arm and a leg.

Your project turned out wonderfully. Now I want to search my stash for coordinating papers to make an accent wall in my living room.
