“When you decorate a room and you want to add some finishing touches but can’t quite find the right picture to hang on the wall, why don’t you use the left over wallpaper to create your own piece of art which will fit in beautifully and really add the wow factor to the room?” - Louise Dunbar

You will need:

  • Box frame
  • Scissors
  • Paper trimmer
  • Glue Gel or 3D foam pads
  • Spare wallpaper

Time to Make: 1-2 hours plus drying time

Skill Level: Intermediate

Step-by-step:

  1. How To Mask A Stamped Image

    1. Have a look at the left over wallpaper you have and decide which piece you want to make the feature for the picture, and you’ll also want to make sure you have a few repeats of this particular piece of the pattern. Cut your piece down to the size of the frame.

    2. Take a good pair of scissors and cut some of the elements from the pattern to create layers for decoupaging. When cutting out your pieces, trim slightly into the edge to try and avoid a white edge, if need be, you can colour the edges with a matching pen.

    3. Lay out your first layer and put it in place using 3d foam pads or glue gel. Set aside to dry before moving onto the next layer.

    4. Repeat the process for as many layers as you want to add, the more layers you add the more 3d your finished project will look and the more it will stand out when hung up in your room. I recommend leaving each layer to dry before adding the next one, this allows it to take a good hold and avoids the pieces slipping when layer up.

    5. When you are happy with the amount of layers you have added and the way your picture looks, making sure it’s completely dry, carefully pop it into your frame and put the backing on, then all that’s left to do is hang it up pride of place in your room and you’ll have everyone commenting on it when they come and visit.
