7 Papercrafts To Spruce Up Your Décor

Transform ordinary paper into beautiful decorations with these ingenious ideas

7 Papercrafts To Spruce Up Your Décor

1. Honeycomb hangings

Honeycomb hangings are fun and easy decorations that work well for any occasion. With just tissue paper and a pair of scissors, you too can create these colourful makes

2. Paper flowers and plants

Paper flowers and plants are a great choice for those who want gorgeous floral décor without any of the maintenance. Keep them in pretty vases and jars, or stick them to the walls for an impressive ambience.

3. Ruffled tissue garlands

Frugal and festive, ruffled tissue garlands are a great DIY decoration. Make one in a solid colour for a themed event, or get creative with all the colours of the rainbow! You're only limited by how much tissue paper you can fit into your shopping basket!

4. Chinese paper lanterns

Everyone recognises the charmingly oriental appearance of Chinese paper lanterns. They come in various shapes and sizes, and are appreciated all over the world. Why not create your own, using patterned paper for added appeal?

5. Origami figures

For those who enjoy a cultured aesthetic, origami figures are many and varied. Keep them as showpieces on your coffee table, your mantelpiece, maybe even the windowsills. The more complicated the piece, the better it demonstrates your skill and patience!

6. Decoupage scenes

With a little paper and imagination, you can create interesting decoupage scenes on your walls. Make little 3D hearts, clouds, hot air balloons and butterflies, and fix them on your walls with blu-tack so that they're easy to move and reposition. The possibilities are endless, but if you're looking for inspiration you can check out other people's creations online.

7. Quilling

Everyone can agree that quilling small strips of paper into a finished creation makes for a beautiful art form. Why not try it yourself, by creating beautiful swirling designs, creatures, flowers, or even spelling out your name? Hang your piece up on the wall for all to see and admire. While it's definitely a challenging art form to master, the results are guaranteed to impress.
