DIY Cheap and Easy Charlie Chaplin Wall Art from Trendenser here. Basically Chaplin’s hat, mustache and bow tie in black cardstock attached to crinkled up brown Kraft paper. You could even piece this together with brown paper bags. TIP: I use this technique a lot to create texture on frames and as backgrounds for collages. You can wet the paper and crinkle it up and experiment with which texture you like better - wet or dry. Also you can dry brush the paper when dry very lightly. It can take on the appearance of leather if painted or something very aged.

DIY Embroidered Paper Book Cover from Urban Threads here. I was asked this question recently by someone who wanted more options for covering her school books. I’m going through my “books” and “printables” tags to see what other book covers I have. I also posted a link to some really cool graphic “GO AWAY” printable covers here.
