Mums who can’t afford fancy art are framing free wallpaper samples from Wilko's and B&Q

SAVVY mums who can’t afford fancy art are framing free wallpaper samples to brighten up their walls instead. 

One woman revealed she hit up Wilko’s and B&Q to get her hands on some tropical-inspired prints. 

She grabbed some chic frames from Ikea, for £6 each, to give her new artwork a professional finish. 

The end result is stunning wall hangings, which look just as good as any designer artwork.  

Sharing her idea to Facebook group to Extreme Budget DIY & Life Hacks, she said: “Wall paper samples make great pictures! £6 each for Ikea frames!

“Wilkinson is the hummingbirds and I think I got the parrots one from B&Q a while back.”


Dozens of people have liked the idea, and shared their own efforts. 

One person said: “I've done this too. Wallpaper samples from homebase and frames from poundland.

"I ordered some other samples online but they came folded up so had creases down.”

Another wrote: “Looks fabulous!”

A third posted: “Amazing I will look into that, thank you!”

This person commented: “I might do this.”

And this exhausted mum was outraged after supermarket substitutes her wine with a low alcohol version.

Meanwhile Ruth Langsford shares plans to organise her fridge after getting the bug from Stacey Solomon – but Eamonn’s not a fan.

Plus this B&M employee makes cheeky tannoy announcement that’s so rude he ‘got fired’ – but some people don’t get the saucy joke.
