If you want to make modern wall decor or are looking for a fun activity to keep your kids busy, you can do a DIY paper wall art. It’s amazing what you can do with a little bit of paper!
This particular geometric paper wall art is easy to do without any special tools or punches, but a simple paper cutter and scissors! Don’t forget to use your favorite combination of colors for something unique that fits your home! Everyone can express their creativity.

Make a square with a standard sheet of paper by cutting the longer side to 8 1/2 inches. Don’t worry if it’s not perfect; you can always cut the uneven sides along the way.
Fold the one side in half, making it look like the second box. Flip it the other way and fold that part down too. You should have four equal squares by the end of it (like you see in box 4).
Next, fold the bottom section to the center and then the top section to the center. This should make the flat piece of paper now have eight different sections.
The paper should be folded again so that the inside has the two latest folds and the outside is smooth. After that, work with each square box you see. You want to fold one side of the first box to make a triangle. Make sure that the tip of the corner touches the end of the crease. Then make another triangle so that the other corner touches the other end of the crease. Repeat this with the other box. It should end up looking like the fourth picture above hopefully.
Fold the triangle on the corner of one end inward. The triangle on the opposite (or diagonal) side should be folded inward too.
Bring the two top corners together. Make sure you’re folding inward like the left picture above! When you put the two together, they should not end up on top of the triangle, as seen in the right picture.
The three sections of the paper that I have shown in the first picture should go under the folded triangle you made in step 5. You may lift the folded section to tuck in the three pieces if needed.
Pop in the middle crease, put the two newly made triangles together, place it down, and you are done! At least with the first shape. Now make 26 more to make some cool paper wall art!
