DIY Paper Crafts: Geometric Wall Art

DIY Paper Cut Out Wall Art Craft Easy

DIY paper crafts are really my most favorite thing. I could cut out and glue paper all day if given the chance! We recently moved one of our gallery wall pieces to a different gallery wall leaving a gap so I used some fancy paper from Paper Source and a dowel I had from a big fail DIY project I tried earlier this month to create a geometric wall art piece. It probably took me longer to pick out the papers than it did to do the whole project!

DIY Paper Cut Out Wall Art

You’ll need:

  • Decorative Paper
  • Cut Out Form
  • Scissors
  • Thread or fishing line
  • Clear Tape
  • Dowel (either wood or metal)
  • Wall Hooks or Screw Eyes

 

How to:

Download and Print out the Hexagon form (available here) or create your own stencil. Trace out your form along the back of the decorative paper and cut out traced pieces. Layout pieces in desired pattern. I used two different papers and each had uneven edges. For a few of the shapes I layered two pieces of paper to show off the uneven/natural edges of the papers I used. If you do this, then adhere the layers together before moving on.

Cut thread into strings 2x longer than paper pieces. Tape string along the backs of the paper columns leaving excess at the top. Align dowel at top of columns and tape string in a loop around the dowel. Install dowel and columns of paper on desired wall using wall hooks or screw eyes.
