If you’re looking for a fun way to pass a weekend afternoon, why not consider DIY wall art? Not only can you exercise your art skills, but you’ll have a beautiful piece to display on your walls. Read on for our favourite ideas.
Hang Decorative Clipboards
Looking for a quirky way to display your masterpiece? This project couldn’t be easier! Simply clip a print onto the board, then hang it on your wall using removable strips. We prefer the boards as seen above with copper details, but many custom clip boards are available online. The fun comes from matching your clipboard to your print!
If you have extra shoe boxes lying around that you don’t know what to do with, here’s your chance! All you need is decorative paper, glue, scissors, and spray paint to get modern, colourful floating shelves. Place succulents, flowers, or other decorative objects inside to complete your look.
Make Use Of Fabric Scraps
Who says wall art always has to involve paint? Textiles are beautiful on their own and deserve to be shown off. Simply line your favourite frame with a piece of fabric and mount on the wall. This eye-catching DIY wall art project really stands out from the crowd!
Washi Tape Decals
If you appreciate careful, detailed art projects, then this one’s for you! Think of washi tape like masking tape, but more fun. It is durable and flexible, and comes in a variety of patterns, colours, and widths. It’s ideal for creating wall decals that don’t damage paint and are easily removed. Try geometric shapes like triangles or rectangles, which create a big impact with their simplicity.
Paint A Burlap Sign
Did you know that burlap is not only inexpensive with a charming rustic feel, but also very easy to paint on? All you need for this craft is a stencil, paint, markers, and of course, burlap. Paint on your favourite saying or your initials, as in the image above.
Not only are DIY art projects inexpensive, but they allow you to unleash your creativity and show off your unique taste! We hope you enjoy letting out your inner crafter and don’t forget to follow the Medallion blog for more great decorating tips.
