Inspiration wall DIY

Inspiration Wall DIY by thisblogisnotforyou.comHi everyone!

I wanted to share something with you I made without using my sewing machine!

I love inspiring pictures and photographs and also keep collecting postcards from museum gift shops. I wanted to hang these up on the wall without having to make too many holes in the wall.

Here are three super easy and fun ways to decorate your walls with your inspiration or pictures.

Polystyrene Pinboard:inspiration wall DIY by thisblogisnotforyou.com

 

I made this useing polystyrene sheets (these were left from the packaging material of our IKEA wardrobe) and duct tape.

I covered the edges with duct tape to make them look more finished.

Now the fun part! After printing out all my favourite pics onto photo paper, I started arranging them which took quite a lot of time.

I used these short pins to pin everything in place.inspiration wall DIY by thisblogisnotforyou.cominspiration wall DIY by thisblogisnotforyou.com

 

Cardboard & Wrapping Paper

This one is even easier if you want to avoid the hours of arranging and pinning.

I taped the cardboard together at the back, so there are two layers, which makes pinning easier.inspiration wall DIY by thisblogisnotforyou.com

I got this cute swallows wrapping paper for just 1 pound at Primark.inspiration wall DIY by thisblogisnotforyou.com

You can either hide the nails like I did with the dried lavender or use them for hanging up jewelry.

I had a lot of fun doing these projects, but now it’s time to go back to sewing 😉

  1. Polystyrene and coloured duct tape … a great idea! 🙂
    I want to couple a very large calendar sheet on a white wall in my office. That’s normally no problem. But this calendar sheet is a little bit different in dimension every year. That’s why i’ve planed a colored board between calendar sheet and wall.
    In every idea, i had before, the colored board was too wheigthy, to couple this on the gallery slat.
    So … thank you thank you thank you for your idea! 🙂
