Decor Q&A: Creative Projects?


The Nest Q&A

I have some great wallpaper scraps; what are some creative things I can do with the leftovers?


Leftover wallpaper scraps can be wonderful for DIY projects. Depending on the size, you can use them for scrapbooking, dresser drawer liners, kitchen cabinet liners, gift wrap, or covering boxes for storage. Think about decoupaging small boxes for gifts as well.

You can also cut out the motif (or parts of it) and apply those with glue to many things, even walls. Flowers, for example, can be applied sporadically around the walls of a room or inside a closet. Make greeting and thank-you cards by gluing a thicker sheet of paper to the inside of a wallpaper scrap, fold while the glue is still a bit wet, and trim the edges. This is a great project to do with your kids as well.
