A Pattern Happy Garland

December 18, 2018

Wallpaper Holiday Garland DIY | Hygge & West

Inspired by having wallpaper remnants and this post, Ola created her own garland this year, and well... you guessed it—we're in love! So, we wanted to share the step-by-step instructions on how to make your own in case you get the itch for some holiday crafting.

Wallpaper holiday garland DIY | Hygge & West

You will need: wallpaper scraps, ruler, pencil, scissors, stapler, and string.

Wallpaper holiday garland DIY | Hygge & West

Instructions:

Select pattern(s) for your ornaments—one pattern will be lovely, but we decided to mix and match. We used Pombal (Coral), Snow (Gold) and Arcade (Cayenne).

You will need 13 strips of paper for each ornament:
• 1 x 2” wide x 3” tall, folded in half lengthwise (that’s the very middle strip, the anchor)
• 2 x 1” wide x 4” tall (innermost layers)
• 2 x 1” wide x 5” tall (middle layers)
• 2 x 1” wide x 6” tall (outermost layers)

    Use a ruler and a pencil to mark the strips on the non-patterned side of the wallpaper. Cut out all the strips and arrange by length. (If you know how many ornaments you’d like to make, multiply the above numbers accordingly and get strip cutting out of the way.)

    For each ornament, line up and staple on one end all the strip pairs and the anchor strip going from longest to shortest to longest again. Make sure the patterned side is always facing outwards. You can glue the strip pairs together for easier assembly.

    Pinch all together and staple the other side of the strips.

    Link the ornaments together with a string. You can use a hot glue gun, but it couldn’t be located in the garage. Enjoy!

    Holiday Wallpaper Projects in 10 Minutes or Less

    Holiday Wallpaper DIY | Hygge & West

    Holiday Wallpaper DIY | Hygge & West

    I've been getting scrappy for the holidays with a few quick projects to add even more pattern to my life. First up, I found this Bruno (Gold) sample in the closet in NYC so wrapped it around our tiny little tree for some extra sparkle.

    I also got my very first real adult Christmas tree this year, so celebrated by topping it off with a Florebela (Fawn) star!

    I just googled "easy last minute tree topper star" and found a couple youtube videos that were simple to follow.

    You basically just fold it accordion style.

    And then cut in on both sides at an angle.

    Voila, a star is born!

    Last, but definitely not least, I was also busy wallpapering my bedroom in Queen Anne (Ebony) this week.

    Holiday Crafting with Sweet Paul

    December 11, 2018

    Holiday Crafting with Sweet Paul | Otomi Red wallpaper DIY diorama | Emily Isabella | Hygge & West

    The holidays just wouldn't be the same without a little touch of something handmade. Beyond the presents and the decorating and the parties, this season is about taking a minute to slow down, take stock of the year gone by, and appreciate the joy of the moment—sounds pretty hygge to us! And what better way to celebrate the season than with a festive DIY project that can be done (alone or with loved ones!) while snuggled up in your coziest flannels, a steaming mug of hot chocolate in hand, and holiday tunes playing softly in the background? 

    On the hunt for the perfect holiday DIY for your wallpaper leftovers? We asked crafting extraordinaire Paul Lowe, a.k.a. Sweet Paul of Sweet Paul Magazine, to come up with a fun and easy holiday craft using his Hygge & West wallpaper of choice, and boy, he didn't disappoint! Keep scrolling for his Otomi-inspired holiday diorama, and to read why handmade matters to Paul, how he celebrates the holidays, and what hygge means to him (he should know—Paul was born and raised in Norway!).

    SWEET PAUL'S OTOMI HOLIDAY DIORAMA

    Holiday Crafting with Sweet Paul | Otomi Red wallpaper DIY diorama | Emily Isabella | Hygge & West

    You will need:

    ❄️ Wallpaper (Paul used Otomi in Red)

    ❄️ Paper glue

    ❄️ Card stock 

    ❄️ Scissors or craft knife

    ❄️ Bowl

    ❄️ Sugar

    Holiday Crafting with Sweet Paul | Otomi Red wallpaper DIY diorama | Emily Isabella | Hygge & West

    Instructions:

    1. Start by figuring out what motifs you want to use, then carefully cut them out and cut them out from the wallpaper.

    2. Glue them to the card stock using paper glue. Allow them to dry completely.

    3. Cut the motifs out from the card stock.

    4. Fill a bowl with sugar and arrange your motifs however you'd like. Have fun!

    Holiday Crafting with Sweet Paul | Otomi Red wallpaper DIY diorama | Emily Isabella | Hygge & West

    Hygge & West: What inspired this holiday craft and why did you choose to create it in Otomi (Red)?

    Sweet Paul: I looked at the wallpaper and thought that there are so many ways to use it. It's all motifs that can be cut out and used for a diorama like I did, a garland, ornaments, etc.

    Soft-Sculpture Holiday Ornaments made by our friend Tamar Mogendorff for Sweet Paul Magazine

    H&W: With so many beautiful holiday decorations available for purchase just a few clicks away, why do you think it's important to craft by hand for the holidays? What does that handmade quality bring to the season that store bought can't?

    SP: For me, holiday crafting isn't so much about the finished products as it is about the making of it. I put on some good music, pour myself a cocktail, and get lost in the material. Invite friends over to a crafts and cocktail night, get creative. And handmade is always best—it has charm and personality.

    Sweet Paul's Copper Leaf Wooden Spoon Ornament

    H&W: One of our favorite parts of this season is all the diverse traditions, new or old, people celebrate with. What's your favorite holiday tradition? Have you created any new ones that you plan to continue this year?

    SP: The main thing to me is the food. Growing up in Norway, I have traditions I like to keep alive. I bake certain cookies from my childhood, make glogg, and make a full Norwegian Christmas dinner with pork belly, lingonberry, potatoes, vegetables, and gravy. I'm a very chill person when it comes to other traditions; I don't need a flashy tree or tons of holiday decor. Simple is good.

    Holiday Crafting with Sweet Paul | Otomi Red wallpaper DIY diorama | Emily Isabella | Hygge & West

    This Safari Animal Gift Tags DIY from Sweet Paul Magazine would be another great way to use your Otomi (or any wallpaper) scraps!

    H&W: This is the season is hygge if there ever was one. What are your favorite ways to add extra hygge to your home this time of year?

    SP: Hygge is a feeling you have inside of you; you can't buy it or order it online. It's hard to explain, but it is a feeling that Nordic people just know. For me, it's about creating a warm, welcoming home, being kind, and remembering that not everyone has a wonderful Christmas. But, of course, candles help and a good fireplace, too. God Jul!

    Project Ideas For Our Seconds Wallpaper

    July 23, 2018

    Nana Pink wallpapered panels

    Want to add more pattern to your life? Our "Seconds" wallpaper that's on sale right now would be the perfect way to do so at a very low price! But because these wallpapers do have some minor print flaws, we'd suggest using them in smaller spaces and for smaller projects (where having a perfect seam isn't important). We've rounded up some of our favorite projects from over the years to hopefully inspire some project ideas! Let's start with wallpaper panels which are always a good idea, like these Nana (Pink) panels via @terracottadesignbuild.

    Closet wallpapered in Snow Gold

    You can't argue with wallpapering a closet. This one via @lala_takes_pics in Snow (Gold) is gold medal level.

    Childrens closet wallpapered in Petal Pusher Black

    And don't forget wallpaper is for kids closets too! For example, this cute Petal Pusher (Black) closet via @alyssadkent is basically a fairy tale come true.

     Wallpapered stairs in Strike Navy | Hygge & West

    Make a huge statement underfoot with wallpapered stairs like this stunning Strike (Navy) ones via @sarahbax!

    Wallpapered headboard in Aja Teal | Hygge & West

    The opportunities to wallpaper furniture are truly endless. We adore this headboard idea in our Aja (Teal) wallpaper designed by @apartmentf15.

    Wallpapered dresser | Queen Anne Ebony | Ikea Hack | Hygge & West

    And, this Ikea cabinet hack with our Queen Anne (Ebony) via @housebeautiful is so gorgeous.

    Wallpapered side of drawers in Foret Charcaol | DIY | Hygge & West

    Don't forget the sides of your drawers either! We absolutely love this idea via @dittybopbop. The Foret (Charcoal) pattern or any other small scale pattern would be perfect for this type of treatment.

    Peonies Copper inside a cabinet | DIY | Hygge & West

    Or the inside of a cabinet for that patterned surprise! This cabinet with our Peonies (Copper) via @rethinkdesignstudio is so fun.

    Petal Pusher on the top of a cabinet | DIY | Hygge & West

    The tops of furniture are also the perfect spot for some patterned treatment, like this lovely Petal Pusher (Gold) dresser via @houseenvyinteriors.

    Nana Saffron wallpapered kitchen built in | Hygge & West

    Built-ins are basically begging for wallpaper! We love this pop of Nana (Saffron) in @liznylon's kitchen.

    Queen Anne Ebony wallpaper kitchen built in | Hygge & West

    And some Queen Anne (Ebony) in my own kitchen :)

    Pineapple Sorbet wallpaper in a kitchen cabinet | Hygge & West Or Pineapples (Sorbet) via @planning_pretty - so, so fresh!

    Peonies Persimmon wallpaper inside a linen closet | DIY | Hygge & West

    A linen closet full of Peonies (Persimmon)? Yes please, and thank you @heymaryelizabeth for the idea!

    Cosmic Desert Ebony wallpapered door | DIY | Hygge & West

    Don't forget your front door! We chose Cosmic Desert (Ebony) for a magical exit.

    Wallpaper magazine holders | DIY | Hygge & West

    And for those extra small projects... think 1) magazine holders,

    Peonies Yellow Tray DIY

    2) trays (Peonies wallpaper) and

    Circular frames with wallpaper scraps

    3) frames! (via @anaveradesign)

    Wallpapered Winnebago in Daydream Green and Diamante Turquoise

    Last, but certainly not least, take your wallpaper on the road, camper style! (via @addisonswonderland)

    Valentine’s Day is for (Wallpaper) Lovers

    February 02, 2018

    Hygge & West Modern Floral Wallpaper

    Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to brighten the day of a friend or loved one (or yourself!) with a little help from the usual (flowers, candy, notes of gratitude)…but also from our usual, pattern!

    Hygge & West Patterned Bedding, Organic Cotton Bedding

    Treat Yourself to Breakfast in Bed...

    There’s something about breakfast in bed that feels so special, and especially with our new bedding collection newly launched, we’ve been finding as many excuses to do so as possible! Our Arabesque (Ochre) duvet is even cozier with croissants and coffee.

    Hygge & West Modern Floral Wallpaper, Gold Wallpaper

    ...And Some Fresh Blooms!

    The most floral bouquet you’ve ever seen! Rosa (Indigo) and Petal Pusher (Gold) add the perfect punch to fresh flowers.

    Hygge & West Modern Floral Wallpaper, Pink Wallpaper

    Craft Time! Patterned Jars Edition

    This is a great craft for the true recycler. We cleaned out empty jam jars and candle containers and cut out pieces of wallpaper to fit inside. A few dabs of glass-friendly glue, a bit of creative paper positioning, and you have yourself a whole new flower vase or candy dish!

    Rosa (Indigo) holds fresh cut flowers. (If you want to get really serious, treat the paper inside your jar with a waterproofing spray and feed your flowers with a wet paper towel rather than a full bath of water).

    Hygge & West Modern Floral Wallpaper, Pink Wallpaper

    Andaza (Blush) is the perfect little candy bowl. We wallpapered the inside x2 for an all-over pattern look.

    Shout-out to Rose Dancers (Pink), the sweetest wallpaper that spreads the love year-round.

    Hygge & West Modern Floral Wallpaper, Pink Wallpaper, Gold Wallpaper

    We had so much fun playing with our most blush-worthy patterns! (Pictured here: Topiary (Gold), Arabesque (Pink)Andaza (Blush)Petal Pusher (Gold) and Nethercote (Rose)).

    Wallpaper Wrapped Presents Hygge & West Strike (Gold) Damask (Gold) Laundry Studio Heath Ceramics

    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.

Add some holly and sparkle, and voila, it's holiday-friendly (and real deer-friendly) decor. See process pics here!

    Holiday Wallpaper Crafting: Paper Stars

    December 14, 2017

    Paper Stars Craft Leftover Wallpaper Hygge & West

    These stars are as versatile as they come – they can be made at any size, look great with any pattern, and last well beyond the holidays!

    You can string your stars together to make a garland, loop with one piece of yarn for an easy paper ornament or simply display among tabletop decorations.

    Hygge & West wallpaper rolls Rifle paper co laundry studios terrence payne

    All you need is:
    A star stencil or cutout (any size will do!)
    Your favorite leftover wallpaper (or wallpapers!) I had on hand Queen Anne (Taupe), Diamonds (Pine) and Knots (Gold)
    String, ribbon or yarn if your stars are to become ornaments or a garland
    Elmer’s glue

    Leftover wallpaper star craft Hygge & West Rifle Paper Co

    1 - Cut out a piece of wallpaper that is large enough to fit two stars. Fold the wallpaper in half, inside out. Trace your star stencil on one side of the folded paper, making sure that two of the star’s points fall along the fold.

    2 - Cut out the star shape. Once you’ve done so, unfold and you should have two stars, connected at two points. Next, to give your stars some dimension, fold and unfold each star in half five times – one fold for each point! 

    3 - Pour a penny-sized amount of glue onto a piece of scrap paper. Dip the inside edges of each of the star’s points in a tiny amount of the glue.

    4 - Press the points of your two stars together so that they stick. Make sure that you maintain the 3D shape as much as possible (but the pattern of your wallpaper will help cover up any imperfections!). Don’t worry if there is a gap between each point of your star. And…voila!

    5 - Repeat as many times as you’d like!

    Tip: The ones shown here are pretty small, but these stars be made with any size stencil. The bigger your star, the more you get to show off your wallpaper’s pattern! :)
