DIY wall art from foam board

I was invited to be a guest blogger at decor8 and submit a DIY project. It went up yesterday, so if you want to learn how to make some wall art out of foam, head on over to read the tutorial. You can hang these pieces up with tape or wall putty, so it's a good project for dorm rooms or apartments. Holly included a request to send her your photos if you make this, and she'll post her favorites. I'd love to see, too.



P.S. I bought this black and white paper at Paper Source. It's slightly textured and very cool. I don't know who designed it.)

Just made them! I didn't paint the sides because I was lazy, but I love how they turned out! I used double-sided wall-friendly poster tape to hang them up, so the dorm walls will remain unscathed. Thanks so much for the tutorial!!

I posted pictures on my blog-- http://kelculator.blogspot.com/
