It’s been months, or maybe years, of staring at the blank wall in your home wondering how to dress it up. Depending on your budget, original art might be out of the picture, and buying more decor from Target might be overkill. So why not make your own wall art?
Making your own wall art is great because it gives you complete control over the final product, ensuring it matches your home perfectly. Plus, everyone who comes through your home can see your artistic prowess! No worries if you aren’t an artist, Shutterfly has plenty of wall art printables to choose from. These printables are totally free, but their cute watercolor and cacti designs look like something you could buy in a store.
Aside from printables, there are other easy projects you can do to fill up your wall. For example, paint a “vase” on canvas and cut a hole to place fake plants in it to create this DIY canvas art. A piece like this adds texture and a 3D element to a gallery wall.
Or, bypass the paint and hang your favorite photos from a wooden dowel. Just tie the pieces of yarn hanging down from the dowel, and attach your favorite photos with tape or glue. Now you have yourself an easy and modern hanging picture display.
When it comes to decorating your home, there’s nothing as daunting as a blank canvas. Just remember not to limit yourself to what can be bought in-store. A little creativity and elbow grease can go a long way in making your house a home.
