Paper crafts

A humble paper plane can transform your wall, if you fix around 50 of them on a big wall. Lay down some airplane related metal sculptures underneath the wall, and you will create an art installation worthy of being displayed in any art gallery!

Other paper craft which makes for great 3D wall art is the colored paper craft. Just fold the colored paper squares to touch the center point and arrange them in grid form.

To wrap up, display plates on the wall. It may seem outdated to you, but actually it depends how you use it – instead of the floral plates, you can mount multi or single colored plates of different shapes and sizes to create an amazing piece of 3D wall art.
