Gift Wrapped

Create artwork to "ooh" and "aah" by covering inexpensive 12x12-inch artist canvases with attractive paper patterns. Wrap the canvas like a present with a 1- to 2-inch overhang. Attach the paper to the front with double-stick tape and secure the excess paper to the frame's back with electrical tape. If using multiple paper patterns, hide seams with decorative ribbon.

Exotic Oriental papers transform the neutral furnishings and blue walls of this apartment from bland to beautiful.
