Styrofoam Wall Art
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.
An easy-to-make (& thrifty) DIY framed wall art project that will add the perfect amount of sparkle and rustic appeal to any room. It can easily be customized to represent your favorite state and makes a very thoughtful, homemade gift!
