When I happened upon a magazine photo of a decorating hack using kraft paper I rejoiced! I have rolls of kraft paper that I have had since 2005! I used to make dozens of 5 x 7 hand cast paper mixed media pieces and the kraft paper roll worked perfect to seal the back of the frame.
This decorating idea is so fun….and inexpensive!
I made the Beach Rules wall hanging first. It’s very simple to make…simply use a pencil to roll each end and secure with a line of hot glue. I printed the Beach Rules on a separate piece of kraft paper that I ran through my computer printer. I used a glue stick to attach the piece between the rolled ends.
I made a thick roll at the top and bottom with the kraft paper and filled 24″ with rope and beachy elements. I really tried to polish off the roll of kraft paper, but I have enough left for other projects. Oh well, I tried!
This would be a nice summer craft to do with the kids if you collect shells on the beach for a fun and easy souvenir display.
