No need to spend your whole decorating budget on walls. Take a look at these inexpensive, wow-worthy wall treatments like this $20 eye-popping headboard made from scrapbook paper glued to the wall. It’s ideal for apartment or dorm dwellers, who are not allowed to paint and don’t want to bother with an actual headboard for the bed.
I love this! It reminds me of a Rubik’s Cube! The bolder and brighter the colors, the better.
I’d never thought of using electrical cords as decor until I saw these ideas collected by Miss Decorate. My favorite turns an ugly cable into a whimsical garden scene by adding paper leaves and a red paper bird. Ingenious!
For another $20 project, don’t miss these smart, no-sew fabric wall panels that turn insulation board and scrap fabric into art. (Scroll down; the top photo is the before photo.) A staple gun is the only tool you’ll need for this easy project. Just pull the fabric taut around the board and staple treating the corners like you’re wrapping a present.
