African Cuff Wallpaper (used as matting), in Jade, $255 per roll, by Whimsey Chronicles

MCS clip frames, 11″ x 14″, $5.24 each (used 15 total)

Easy Peasy DIY Field of Photos per Martha Stewart Living – Unfurl enough wallpaper to cover the backings of a set of inexpensive clip frames, cut paper to fit each, and then use those pieces as mats. Hang up the frames, edges abutting so the wallpaper pattern is aligned.

D.I.Y. to personalize your room & Re-purpose wallpaper

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

I created these 2 framed pictures for a good friends twin’s nursery, and found it was the perfect way to re-purpose some wallpaper samples!

First locate an image you like (i.e. magazines, online, etc.) and pair it with the initials you want to use. Scanning it into the computer makes it easier to play with the scale of the image.

I used Photoshop, but a Word document can be used as well. Using a thicker font makes it easier to cut around the letters, I specified Blackoak STD.

Print out your picture and initials for a stencil.  Next, attach it to your wallpaper (I used paperclips to keep the paper in place) and cut around the stencil using scissors or an x-acto knife.

The picture frames were re-used since I found them at an estate sale. I replaced the original picture and kept the creme + baby blue mat.

Michael’s has a great selection of solid colored paper, which is what I used for the navy background that I mounted the design onto.

Tie a bow around it and you have a nice gift for a friend or just yourself!
