Hanging framed decor or putting decals are among the many ways you can spruce up a blank wall. But if you have some scrap materials and a bit of time on your hands, why don't you try creating your own DIY decor? It's simple and easy. Here's how:

Materials:

  • black and white fabric
  • acetate
  • scissors
  • double-sided tape
  • fabric glue
  • pencil 
  • bond paper

How-to:

  1. Make a pattern of the design you want. In this project, we used butterflies. Draw the outline of a butterfly on bond paper. Make it in three different sizes for variety. 
  2. Use the bond paper pattern to trace the design on the black and white fabric. Cut the fabric. 
  3. Using a fabric glue or double-sided tape, stick the fabric onto the acetate. Cut according to its shape. 
  4. Stick the butterflies to the wall. You can make as many stickers as you want. You can also use foam tape to have a layered or 3D effect.

RL Tip: Use a variety of black and white prints for added interest. Mix blank frames with the butterflies, but follow a single color palette for a more cohesive look. Here, we used a black-white-yellow color palette.
