Branch out with a peel-and-stick tree from an online source, such as etsy.com, or paint your own freehand design to turn a ho-hum wall into a standout feature. Perch portraits on the branches for a fun take on the classic family tree.
Improve the bedside manner of a sleepy side table with a piece of colorful paper cut to fit and topped with glass. Mix it up with the seasons by changing the paper.
Turn a hand-painted design into a gallery-worthy focal point by surrounding it with empty picture frames. These leafy boughs flow outside the borders of the frames for a whimsical effect.
Open the door to wanderlust (and gain instant privacy) by backing the panes of a glass door with inexpensive maps. Hold the pieces in place with archival double-stick tape or glazier's points, which are available at frame shops and hardware stores.
