Hanging Elephants

Last summer I was really excited to get back to the University of Florida and to decorate the apartment I’d be moving into. I came across a pin on Pinterest for a unique wall decoration and decided to recreate it for my bedroom.



5-10 pieces of scrapbook paper that coordinate. I recommend textured paper with interesting patterns.

4-6 ft. of ribbon


Elephant stencil (print and cut this one out or use another from the internet that you like)

Trace and cut out the elephants onto the scrapbook paper you have chosen. Once you have 10, arrange them into two columns and then tape the ribbon along the back of each, creating two separate “elephant ribbons”.

I used thumb tacks to attach them to the wall, hanging one higher than the other to add interest, like it shows on Pinterest. If you want to get fancier you could tie a bow at the top or add some type of button or broach for added effect.
