Leftover wallpaper is not meant to be stashed away – after all, if you love a pattern enough to cover your walls in it, should you not make use of every last scrap?
Well, we’ve found that crafts are the perfect use, and the holidays are the perfect time for crafts.
What follows is a roundup of some of our favorite leftover wallpaper crafts, courtesy of team H&W and friends.
Wallpaper-Wrapped Presents: What's the easiest and most festive way to show off your leftover wallpaper's pattern? Under the tree, of course! Also, this just so happens to be our favorite way to wrap presents. Pictured here are Damask (Gold) and Strike (Gold). Courtesy of Christiana, her cool-girl tree trimmings and amazing fireplace. :)
Paper Stars: Ornaments, garlands, table toppers, tree toppers...these versatile little guys can do it all! Click here for a how-to guide and inspiration. Every H&W paper is a star, but we used Queen Anne (Taupe), Diamonds (Pine) and Knots (Gold). Courtesy of H&W team member Katherine Bildsten and her apartment that is too tiny for a tree!
Festive Faux Taxidermy: Christiana made this papier-mâché deer using Foret (Midnight) wallpaper scraps. All you need is some leftover wallpaper (one pattern, or many!), a paint brush, wallpaper paste and a deer head form (this one is from Etsy). Add some holly and sparkle, and voila, it's holiday-friendly (and real deer-friendly) decor. See process pics here!
