Wallpapered Magazine Holder

Swap the utilitarian look and feel of magazine organizers for something more artful.


  1. Step 1

    Trace the tall back panel of a magazine holder onto cardboard, and cut out.

  2. Step 2

    Using that template as a guide, trace 1 panel for each holder onto a width of decorative wallpaper (floral and geometric prints work best). Cut out.

  3. Step 3

    Squeeze craft glue onto the back of a magazine holder, and spread evenly with a sponge brush.

  4. Step 4


    Align paper with the back panel of the holder, and affix, smoothing out air bubbles as you go. Repeat with remaining paper and holders. File issues chronologically, and arrange the holders on a shelf to re-create the wallpaper's design.
