Card Stock Window Wall Decor

20 Mar

Here’s a really simple wall decor idea that you can do in a night. The only supplies you need are cardstock, scissors, and thumb tacks.

1) Cut the card stock in one inch strips. 4 strips per window. (16 total in my project) I used two different colors for contrast.

2) Divide the strips into piles of four.

4) Slide the strips together, connecting them in a square. Do this with all 16 strips to create 4 boxes.
