Treat your home as your canvas and adorn your walls with hangings, paintings, stencils, papercrafts, tapestries, plants and more. Make a geometric work of art using silver and copper leaf and turn your collection of vintage ephemera into a gallery wall in your living room, using simple handmade box frames. Wall Art will show you how to decorate a child's bedroom with a jumping hare made of washi tape and how to weave a group of little, Aztec-inspired wall hangings to bring a touch of texture to a bare wall. Update your interiors with these innovative, contemporary projects, some of which can be created in an afternoon. You'll have a great time making a beautiful shadow box inspired by Scandinavian folk art, a delicate macrame wall hanging that will transform any space, and a giant shining firefly that will really make an impact. All you need to do is find a bare wall and get started!
