    • Three 36" x 12" x 1" sheets
  • One roll contemporary wallpaper
  • Grosgrain or velvet ribbon, 1" x 2-3/4 yds. per panel
  • Poster adhesive or small saw tooth hangers and nails
  • Low-temp glue gun and glue sticks
  • Thick, white craft glue
  • Yardstick or ruler
  • Scissors

  1. Cut three 12" x 36" panels from wallpaper, taking note of desired design placement.
  2. Spread thick coat of white glue on back of first piece and press to foam sheet; smooth with fingers and let dry. Meanwhile, glue remaining wallpaper panels to foam sheets. Let dry completely.
  3. Beginning and ending at one lower corner, use glue gun to secure ribbon around edges of each foam sheet; trim excess, allowing a bit of overlap.
