All television makeover programmes include at least one project for making a picture or wallhanging as an instant way of individualising and personalising a room.
Picture This! picks up on this popular fast decor feature to present 19 simple projects for making original artworks using low-cost materials and a minimum of techniques.
Every project also has a variation, showing how you can use similar techniques to create a different effect.
The ideas range from framing a group of coloured prisms to make a light-catching wallhanging to using ribbons and paint on a ready-stretched canvas for a piece of contemporary abstract art; personal wallhangings are made with blown-up photos of friends and family. These and many other ideas will help you instantly change your room.
