Diy Cheap and Easy Wall Art

This is such a great technique to add DIY interest to your home.  It is perfect on so many levels.

1. It is easy. (7 year olds completed today's project)
2. It is cheap. (the more creative you get, the cheaper is is)
3. It is unique!

We followed the same technique as the make do and mend art from a while back.

I used a cool wrapping paper I found at Tai Pan Trading.  It is made of recycled materials and is incredibly durable. (source)  You could use fabric, or depending on the look and size you want, scraps of fabric, washi tape, scrapbook fabrics, etc. I ended up using a paint sample from Home Depot, but acrylic paints would work as well.  You could probably spray paint the thing.  It really is that easy!

We initially used Mod Podge and worked really hard to get all the bubbles out. Because I was using non-pourous materials though, the next day it began to lift. So instead we used  spray adhesive and embraced the  wrinkles. ( Is that a life lesson I need to learn?)

Once your sticker is in position, paint the entire board.  Make sure cover the line where the sticker meet.

Hang and enjoy!  (PS I used command strips and they are working like a champ!)


  1. that is a fun piece of artwork!! i love the quilts on the bed too!!!

  2. We are a human being and we need refreshment. Every day we worked so hard and we get tired. If we reach home and found our room is decorated with beautiful Wall Stickers then we will get some inner refreshment. Wall art is sold in many places. Some retail stores carry the decals. However, we have found that the selection is limited.

  3. A leaning acoustic guitar could go effectively in the family space, a sculpture or even an easel by having an art like this multi-colored umbrella poster framework of art frill within a canvas might be a brain turner inside the living room, or perhaps a collectible item in the bedroom could work magic.
