How to Make Wall Art

how to make wall art

 

If you’re looking for a way to spice up a room, wall art is an excellent way to do it. However, there is a lot to know about wall art and it can be expensive, and some people simply don’t enjoy having someone else’s art in their home. In these cases, you might want to consider making your own wall art.


Although there are hundreds of different ways to make wall art out there, we’ve selected a few to showcase here that are easy to do and can offer a transformative result on any wall you put them on.


Hang A Stylish Set Of Objects

This is one of the easiest ways to make wall art out there. If you’ve got a collection, such as some quality China, or maybe a selection of comic book panels you like—you can put it up on your wall for all to see. It’s an excellent twist on the gallery wall look, and it shows your personality.

Use Your Children’s Drawings

If you’ve got kids, framing their drawings can actually be quite endearing wall art. All you need to do for it is take some of your kid’s most whimsical drawings and frame them up. It’s very cheap, and it’ll make your kids feel like Picasso at the same time. Wall art décor like this can really make a room feel more loving and homely.


Make A Beaded Hanging

Take a relatively thick branch and dig a couple of holes through it. Then, attach strings with beads on them to each of those holes, and voila, you’ve got yourself a piece of 3D wall art. Making the string lengths asymmetrical can also be a great idea to give a sense of chaotic elegance to the room.


Paint A Section A Different Color

Taking a section of the wall not often looked at, such as a portion of the ceiling or a hallway, and painting it a vibrant colour different from the rest of the room can be a great way to liven up space and draw attention to places that would otherwise go unnoticed.


Hang Your Plants

While you could leave all of your plants on the windowsill, they can look a lot more exciting when hung up on a wall. All you need is a pot, a nail, and a couple of pieces of sturdy string. Alternatively, you can choose to plant them in a basket or use a hook screw to hang the pot off of the ceiling. Regardless of how you choose to hang up your plants, some greenery can really bring life to a room.


Frame Printouts

If you’ve got a canvas prints shop with high-quality printers near you, this can be a great way to get some prints on the cheap that are almost as high-quality as the real thing. Take some images you would like to use as wall art prints and print them out on high-quality paper. Then, take some UV-protective varnish and spray it over the piece so that it doesn’t fade with time. When you’re done, all that’s left is to frame it and hang your new wall print up!
