Paper Wheels

In September, I get to move into my very first apartment! It is very exciting, and I am already dreaming up decoration ideas. Luckily, the blog world is filled-to-the-brim with fantastic DIY projects, such as this paper wheel project I found on Ruffled. The idea actually came from a handmade wedding in Texas, which you can check out here. Isn't it just the prettiest thing? This paper art adds so much dimension and interest to plain walls... and it's completely doable! You can view the complete how-to here. I'm thinking this project is an absolute must for my new bedroom in the fall... Tell me, do you have any good ideas for easy bedroom decor?


  1. Ooh! I love this idea! It's so pretty. I want to try this out! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Dang why haven't I thought of this before! This is a smart and beautiful project I must say. Think about it. You have tons and tons of paper left over from homework, midterms, projects, or just junk paper and it's filling your desk drawers to the brim. What better way to get rid it than to make it a piece art you can put on your walls to impress your guests! I love origami's way of making a simple 2D page into a 3D masterpiece! This is a great post Anh and you now made me want to make an origami rose. Oh and a good idea for easy bedroom decor that'll match perfectly with the paper wheel walls would be a paper lantern hanging from the ceiling! Just an idea. =)

    Thanks, Erik! I didn't think about the recycling aspect of this before.. So I guess this project could be decorative AND good for the environment! Which makes it all the better. :) I used to be really into origami; you should show me how to make an origami rose! And thank you for the idea of the paper lanterns; I could have an awesome paper-art-themed room in the fall! Now wouldn't that be a nice change from the ordinary.. ;)


  4. How exciting!! I'm not very good with bedroom decor though... I just cal them as I see them! I love post cards and throwing things (vintage) together in shadow boxes and collages is great!

    Post cards and all things vintage can never go wrong in terms of bedroom decor. It sounds so lovely! Thank you for the ideas! :)
