Comments - Making Wall Art out of Styrofoam

Try using wallpaper border paste. I have used it on many projects gluing scrapbook paper to various substrates. It sticks great and does not cause wrinkles. This is available wherever wallpapers and borders are sold.

For gluing scrapbook papers try using ready made paste for wallpaper boarders. It sticks great, doesn't cause wrinkles. Available at any store that sells wallpapers and borders.

The picture with the floral artwork was a photo supplied by Dow. They didn't provide any further information as to the origin of the floral print/paper itself.

I would also like to know where the floral decor came from???

@Anon--I never ask for stuff. Manufacturers/publicists get in touch and ask if I'd be interested; if I am, they send it, and I write about it.

Hi! where can I get that orange flower decor? It is exactly what I'm looking for. It's so pretty!

@Rachel..they certainly look like it, don't they? I'm afraid I didn't make them, though. 

Rachel on Jun 21, 2012:

Are the square accent pieces and candle holders styrofoam as well?  If so, how did you decorate them?

Danielle on Jun 10, 2012:

Why not use other scrapbook elements such as decorative pins or brads to adhere the paper to the styrofoam? Then you don't have to worry about rippling at all... And could even change out the decor more regularly. Like, at Christmas or other holidays you could change out the paper to go with the theme.

How about laminating the scrapbook paper first?  It would give a little sheen to the collection but probably wouldn't ripple?

Love this!!! Can you tell us the paint color??

Where did you find your black/white scrapbook paper?


Susi on May 22, 2012:

I have used free packing foam, all different sizes, covered with fabric to sound proof my son's room.  I used my 'collection' of fabrics, wrapped co-ordinating pieces and covered the entire wall as if a puzzle.  I first stapled kraft paper to the walls and attached different sizes different ways:  wig pins, hot glue and elmers.  It gets vacuumed occasionally and is very very effective as a sound barrier.

@anonymous - would you mind sending us a screenshot, or at least saying which browser you're using? The button isn't supposed to overlap the text, and if it's doing that on your browser, we'd like to try to fix it.

You know, that "Pinterest" icon is REALLY REALLY anoying.  Why do you have to keep it on the page?  Can't even see what I'm reading unless I scroll it below that thing!

@ Lisa, yeah. The last image was done with fabric. 

Lisa on Apr 12, 2012:

Why not try this with fabric? Instead of glue use small pins then you would not need to glue the ribbon around the edges? But you could if you wanted ??

@Cathy--Glad it was a success! LOVE the idea of using multiple pieces of cardboard!!
