Six ways to use up leftover wallpaper

Wallpaper is an excellent way to add colour, texture, and pattern to a room. And with so many beautiful patterns and designs available, it's no wonder that wallpaper has become a popular choice for homeowners and decorators alike. However, one downside to wallpapering a room is that you may end up with leftover wallpaper scraps. Here are six ways to use up leftover wallpaper and add wonder to your home. 

Wall Art

One of the easiest ways to use up leftover wallpaper scraps is to frame them. 

Framing leftover wallpaper scraps is not only a practical way to use up excess material, but it can also be a creative and visually stunning addition to your home decor. Imagine a wall filled with a gallery of beautiful wallpaper pieces, each one unique in colour, texture, and pattern. 

Framing wallpaper scraps can also make a great gift for a friend or family member who loves home decor. You can customise the frames to match their style and preferences, and you can even add a personal touch by using wallpaper scraps that have sentimental value or that remind them of a particular place or time.

Cover Furniture

Another great way to use up leftover wallpaper scraps is to cover furniture. Whether it's a dresser, bookshelf, or even a side table, adding a layer of wallpaper can give it a fresh new look. The best part is that wallpaper can be applied to almost any surface, so you're only limited by your imagination. Consider using a bold pattern for a statement piece or a more subtle design for a more understated look.

Get Festive with Paper Chains

The holiday season is the perfect time to get creative with leftover wallpaper scraps. Instead of throwing them away, why not make some festive paper chains to hang on your mantel or decorate the walls? Simply cut your wallpaper into one-inch strips, roll them up and glue or tape them together to create a fun and unique decoration.

Folded paper fans are one of the simplist origami creations, yet their charm and elegance make them perfect for party favours, place settings or details for gift wrapping. Wallpaper is the perfect paper for them as they are thicker in weight and make for sturdy decorations.

If you don't want to make a big statement with your leftover wallpaper, consider using it to line shelves and drawers instead. This is a great way to add a pop of colour or pattern to a space without overwhelming it.
