This is a great way to make a room look sophisticated and chic. I love the advice from MaryEllen about using insulation panels to do the same thing. You can use the round pipe insulation for wreath forms much cheaper the same way, so it makes perfect sense to save a little money to get the materials from the hardware store instead of the craft store.

Instead of using the styrofoam sheets, you can head to the home improvement store and buy foam insulation panels. They are bigger, cheaper and made of foam pellets. You'll have to remove the plastic liner from the side onto which you glue the wallpaper.
