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!

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!

  1. Wow! That is such a cute idea! I wonder if any other places that sell wallpaper would do this. Thanks for sharing! I may have to share this with my readers too. xx

  2. I guess Anthropologie doesn’t have free samples anymore. I just tried and they are $2 each and you can’t get samples on all of them, just certain ones. 🙁

    1. Oh that’s a bummer! I’ve noticed throughout the years that Anthro has stopped the free sample program. Maybe it’s just because of the holidays? It was working earlier this year and I ordered free samples. I would keep checking back because I’m sure they will offer free samples again!


  3. this idea went viral on tiktok a few months back and because of the increase in demand, anthro started charging for samples 🙁 $2 isn’t much though so I might just have to try this <3
