(1 Votes)


Create this great nautical wall art in minutes by wrapping STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam with fabric. This is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to decorate your home in style.

Coastal Wall Art


  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam:
    • Blocks, 18" x 12" x 1", three
  • Seashell-print cotton fabric, 45" wide, 1-1/3 yds.
  • Yardstick or ruler
  • Carpenter's level
  • Scissors
  • Straight pins
  • Poster adhesive or sawtooth hangers with nails
  • Low-temp glue gun and glue sticks


  1. Cut three 18"x24" panels from fabric. Center first foam block on back of fabric. Fold edges down, smoothly mitering corners. Pin fabric edges to secure; add a dab or two of glue for additional hold.
  2. Cover two remaining panels in same way. Glue hanger to same spot on back of each panel; let dry. Note: If you have extra fabric, recover a chair pad or make a pillow to coordinate with wall art.
  3. Use level and poster adhesive to secure squares to wall as shown, or glue sawtooth hanger to top center back of each square and hang with small nails.
