Cheap and Easy DIY Temporary Accent Wall/Wall Art/Gallery Wall Template

I’ve been working on creating a “summer carnival mantel” for the “Fun in the Sun” Blog Hop. I wanted a background that was “NO COMMITMENT” and decided foamboard + FrogTape would do the trick.

  • tri-fold {display} foam board
  • FrogTape

Tutorial:

I simply alternated FrogTape stripes on each of the 3 sections of the tri-fold display foamboard…

I wrapped the tape around the outer edges and used my thumbnail to secure the tape edge into the fold for a clean line into the inner creases.

All done! FrogTape green worked out to be a great accent color for my colorful and eclectic summer carnival theme (have you seen my multi-color curtains in the family room)?

Best part? Totally re-usable for changing up decor! Try wrapping paper, fabric, vinyl decals…add interest, color, pattern, texture. Great for rentals. So many options! *Note: Paint is not a good option and will warp foamboard.

Hanging:

The thing I loved about using this as a background for my ‘fun house’ mirror wall was that with the foam board laid out on the floor, I arranged the mirrors and frames. Then marked where I wanted things to hang with a pencil.

Since it’s super light weight, hang with Command Strips.

It’s nice that the command strips allow for moving around to be sure the foamboard is level.

Nail through the foam board for placement of mirrors, frames or art.

Then display! Here’s a sneak peek of the ‘summer carnival’ mantel…

And when I’m ready to change things up like I usually do, I can cover the foam board for a completely different look.

Neat, right?

Why I love this project:

  • Easy.
  • Cheap.
  • Lightweight.
  • Great for gallery wall template.
  • No commitment.
  • So many customizable options.
  • Re-usable.
