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.”
