Old things into new

I helped my sister move house a few weeks ago, (admittedly I didn't do much I was too fascinated with my nephew). She was throwing a heap of things out and amongst the pile was a piece of wallpaper, so I snapped it up before it got to the bin. I wanted to hang it on the wall without having to tack it to the wall itself.

You need a piece of wallpaper or alternatively you could use newspaper for something a bit different

An old canvas

A staple gun

and now you have an awesome piece of art to hang on the wall
You can find retro wallpaper like this in vintage boutique stores, I know Madam Butterfly's occasionally has some in stock.
