Alright, I am so ready for this week! The sun is shining, the temperatures are warm and my kids are back in school after spring break. I love this time of year, it all feels so fresh with winter behind us and nothing but months of sun, warmth, long days, and outside fun. Even if I am doing something inside I feel more energized, so decorating or getting projects done around the house is happening a lot. Today I am sharing Creative craft and decor ideas using paper, I looking back at previous paper crafts I have done as well as sharing a few from fellow bloggers.

I love using paper for craft ideas. It is one of the easiest ways to decorate a home and keep the cost down. Also, every single paper craft I have done have always been so easy to do.

Wrapping paper, contact paper, peel and stick paper… all of them can be used. Which is great because there is so many options with color and design. I have loved adding paper decor to my home for different seasons, it adds a little small touch to the room without it being a big project. Change out some colors with the paper and you are done, ready to bring in a new season of decor!

I have used paper in a ton of ways, I am only highlighting my favorites. With three years of blogging down even I forget all that I have shared or created. There have been glass vase wrapped in paper, a serving tray with wrapping paper backing, countless paper wall decor (a ton for specific holidays), I even recently used marble contact paper to add a faux marble look to my dining room cabinet. All of it so versatile, and outside of the box.

When visiting a craft store I almost always check out the paper section, and if I see any wrapping paper that I like the pattern or color on I almost always pick it up. Even if I do not have an immediate use for it, I know it will come up eventually. You know, the ever important emergency decorating supplies. We all have one right?! I hope you enjoy these Creative craft and decor ideas using paper from myself and a few talented fellow bloggers. Now that my home is all bright with the spring decor I am working on the outside. We have a ton of smaller and a few bigger projects planned for our outdoor space. People always ask me how I can continue having content to share on my blog, but honestly…. I have a few years worth of ideas, updates, and renovations for my home. I would be doing all of these with or without this blog, but I get to meed you lovelies and share some inspiration while I get my decorating fix. Thinking outside of the box with ideas like using paper or other lower cost options allows me to off-set that cost. Making it a feasible option for my family without making us go into debt for the sake of my love of decorating.
