We spotted this gorgeous DIY project on fallfordiy.com and it’s pretty simple to achieve. These punch rug art works can be hung on the wall or lent on a shelf, either way they look great and will bring interest to a room [ kids & adults ].

The shopping list for this tutorial is quite small – embroidery hoop, yarn, hessian fabric and a punch rug needle – and it is for beginners, so we can all give it a go.

So you’ll need to buy a frame but finding a cool piece of art work for just a fiver is an incredible find. Hunting through the new home products at House of Fraser we find this gorgeous wrapping paper (3 metres for £5) that is so perfect it needs to be framed. Make a statement – find a great big frame (try the largest size in Ribba frame from Ikea or head to Desenio and pick one of their skinny profile frames) and cut the paper to size.

The pattern, the colour – it’s all on trend and would be perfect as a focus piece of art in a lounge or bedroom.

To ensure the paper stays smooth and flat, hunt out your local picture framers and ask them to ‘dry mount’ the paper to a board (this can cost around £20 for a 60×80 size piece)
