With a huge number of options for personal creativity, developing complexes for children (which are suitable for adults), ideas and materials, paper applications remain relevant, although it develops along with the direction of paper art.
Decoration on the wall
An incredible effect can be achieved by combining simple shapes and figures - a panel of colored paper made with scissors and glue.
If you consider paper applications as a full-fledged material for decor and expand understanding of the application, the effect will be much greater than expectations.
From the squares of colored paper, accordions are added, then they need to be bent in half and stretched - a three-dimensional circle is obtained.
You can make them so much to cover them with part of the wall, for example, where the wallpaper is damaged (a real voluminous panel). Parts of the circles are fastened with glue or a stapler, then glued to the wall, chaotically or patterned.
From old bright magazines
If old glossy magazines have accumulated, they can be used to decorate the wall. All bright and beautiful photos are cut and pasted on the wall, you can do it in even rows or in a circle or create a beautiful mess from elements of different or equal size.
You can make such a decor on a sheet of cardboard or plywood. And then hang it and be surprised that this is a dynamically made collage.
There are many options for using vivid prints, especially if they are on glossy paper.
Cut the stripes (width depends on the size of the panel). Then spread the strips of paper with a simple weaving. The resulting elements can be placed on pieces of cardboard, plywood, just on the wall. If this is a separate abstract picture or part of the wall decor, then it can be covered with a layer of varnish.
From simple forms
You can make a surprisingly dynamic decision for an evenly painted dull wall - a decorative panel made of paper. To do this, you first need to stock up on colored paper, you can use it from the magazine, apply colored paper to the printer, it's better if the color is on both sides.
Cut hearts in different colors and sizes depending on your own idea. To cut hearts, you need to use templates of different sizes, so that all elements are of the same shape. For dynamism and completeness, it is better to take several sets of different sizes.
First you need to make a set of hearts as large as possible and lay out flowers or use them two or three to create a volume.
Lay out the largest flowers, then lay out between them smaller shapes, you can perform directly on the wall or use a sheet of plywood, in any case, get an unusually spectacular picture.
To create such compositions, you can use any other shapes. If the brightest printed material is used for the latter version, it will be even better. You can make the original shapes white, and then paint them with a spray before or after creating the composition on the wall.
You can not adhere to the options described above, it is enough to understand the principle to start creating independently - the paper decor is suitable for this as well as possible.
A great option for creativity is corrugated or corrugated paper. There are different colors, very soft, plastic, it can be pulled to give shape and volume. From this material you can do things of fantastic beauty. It is worth trying once to understand how easy it is.
Making a flower from corrugated paper
Such a rose can be taken for real, and it is made literally in five to seven minutes.
- Gofre is cut into strips 5 cm wide, length 10. Corners make rounded.
- From the foil, the core for the flower rolls down, is attached (adhered) to the base as well as the stick or wire in the role of the stem.
- The first piece of corrugation is stretched so that the ball of foil is enveloped almost completely. Tightly threaded on the stem.
- The next workpiece should be stretched and fastened on the opposite side. So fasten all the petals, each thread with a thread. The edges of the petals can be formed to give the naturalness of the rose.
- By the same principle, green leaves are made.
If the panel is conceived on the wall, then 2-3 green leaves will suffice, the flower itself will be glued to the base - a small cardboard circle; from roses of different sizes it is possible to make a panel directly on the wall, and it is better to place it in a frame. However, their (framework) will have to be purchased or done by oneself. In them, you can put the backlight, then the panel will also be an original lamp.
By the same principle, poppies, tulips, butterflies and other elements are made, of which decorative voluminous panels made of paper are collected.
Also there are technologies that require a little more time - appliqués from newspaper tubes, decoupage techniques. However, if you understand how to make a wall for a wall, simple forms will be enough - they are easy to replace, decorating the surface seasonally or in your mood.
