I've been seeing these Styrofoam wall panels circulating around Pinterest for quite some time now and decided it was time I tried it out. My walls are blah. I have very neutral tones in my home... creams, brown, and white. I really wanted a splash of color to sass things up a bit. This was by far the easiest and fastest project I have ever done AND it cost under $12!!! I like it! Okay hold on to your seats because things are about to get real... GHETTO!
I took my little boy toy shopping to my not so friendly neighborhood Wal-mart and found these little squares of material. They are 1/4 yard of "scraps". Just the perfect size for what I need. I looked for a Styrofoam board but found a "floral board" instead... Same thing in my opinion. There is a slight difference but not enough to matter.
My board was 36 inches long. I needed 4 boards so some quick math puts me at 9 inches long (teehee). I marked my board at 9 inches to make each square even.
I had to use a knife to cut my smaller squares and I made a huge mess! Floral boards "snow" when you cut them. I shaved the edges to get the sides as smooth as I could.
Now this is where things start to get a little Ghetto! I wish I could tell you that I used some fancy iron on backing or glue or something but I didn't. I used... Duct tape! Yes I did. Don't judge me!
Wrap that sucker up just like a present.
Viola! Instant cuteness. Now you can do it however you want but I barely have enough time to pee by myself with my young ones so I wrapped it up the fastest way I could and didn't think twice about using Duct tape.
I folded the corners to give it a somewhat clean edge. To hang I cut a small slit in the fabric on the backside where my nail was going to go, after I nailed the nail into the wall I stuck the nail head into the Styrofoam.
All done! The fastest project evar!!! Now I have a pop of color and am falling in love with the orange and bright green. I think I will do more with cute kids material for my baby's rooms!
Thanks for reading and not judging me! I use Duct Tape and I am not ashamed.
