3 Easy DIY Wall Art Ideas


Making a room feel well put together is as easy as decorating the walls. But with a limited budget it can be hard to do that with professional help. Luckily, there are plenty of easy DIY projects that you can do in order to make your room a stylish place. If you’re not feeling up to a DIY project and you’d rather get something professional, visit http://www.wallsauce.com/us/.

Watercolor Wall Art

Watercolor paintings work perfectly in any room. Match the colors of the paint to the theme of your room (light, pastel colors work great for this project) and it will tie in beautifully. For this project you will need the following

  • Dish soap
  • Water
  • Bowls
  • Tempera paint
  • Drinking straws
  • White paper

Start off with two tablespoons of your tempera paint. Add this to a bowl and then add two table spoons of dish soap into the bowl as well. After adding the tempera paint and the dish soap, add half a cup of water. Take a straw and blow into the water until bubbles start to form on the surface.

Quickly place a piece of the paper over the bowl. After the bubbles burst they will leave prints behind on the paper. After these prints dry you can repeat the process with another color. After this is done you can frame it and hang it on your wall.

Repurposed Door Panel 

If you go poke around in a scrap yard, you’ll find an old door panel that you can use for this DIY project. After finding your abandoned old door panel you can start by sanding off all of the paint on it. Next, make sure the glass on the panel is completely clean. Depending on the color scheme of the room in which you want to hang this wall art you can choose a color to paint the door with.

The purpose of this DIY project is to display pictures in a creative way. So the next thing you will do is attach bulldog clips to the panel. This will allow you to easily put pictures on the panel. Alternatively, you can hang ribbons, jewelry or anything else you want from the clips.

Custom canvas prints
You can purchase your very own cheap custom canvas prints to hang up in your home. They’re nice for adding a personal touch to a bland room. Maybe you want to include that adorable photo of your eldest son from when he was a baby to your living room, but be warned, he might never bring a partner over again in fear of seeing the embarrassing image!

Color Blocking

This DIY is the easiest of all. There is just one step: paint your walls.

In order to achieve the color blocked look, buy two contrasting paint colors. Then use tape to make a diagonal or straight line down your wall. Paint the one side and then the other with the contrasting color. Voila!

If you can’t paint your walls, don’t fret. There is another way to color block your walls without altering the walls at all. Buy blank canvas sheets and paint them a color that contrasts with the color of your wall. Hang them up and you’ll have color blocked walls without your landlord getting angry.

You can also keep the color blocking exclusively on the canvas by painting the canvas in two contrasting colors that don’t contrast your wall.
