Are you stuck at home wondering what you can do to spruce up the place without spending a lot of time or money? Well, I’ve got the DIY project for you! The hardest part about this project is waiting for the samples to come in the mail. But once they arrive it literally takes one minute to create cute artwork for your wall, table, or shelf!
Wallpaper Sample Art Project
I first saw this idea on Sweet Serendipity Design’s blog (which no longer exists) so I can’t take all the credit for it. It was such an easy project I couldn’t resist. Anthropologie will send you up to 10 – approx. 5″X7″ wallpaper swatches for free! Just go here*, choose a wallpaper, and click on ‘request swatches’ in the description area and you’ll get a cute little package in no time. You don’t even have to pay for shipping!
*Not all wallpaper is available as a sample but a lot are. You just have to do some searching!
I put a few of my swatches in $1.99 frames I got at IKEA. So my new wall (or bookshelf) art cost about $6! Not bad! And I still have a bunch of swatches left over for my next project!
