1. Hang Up Creative Scarves
This is perhaps the simplest of the DIY wall art ideas because it literally requires nothing. Dig into your closet and take out all those scarves that you bought over the years and never used. You have two options here:
You can either position a big scarf behind the 3-seater sofa as the center piece and nail both ends of the scarves on the wall or you can take the small scarves and frame them. The former look is a little bohemian, whereas the latter is classic.
Another way to use the big scarf is to stretch it over a canvas and then staple the ends in the back. This way, you will have a clean look and you can do the same with smaller scarves to create an abstract design.
2. Geometric Abstract Art with a Masking Tape
Using masking tape to create geometric abstract art is pretty fun. You get to play with different colors and basically let loose. This cheap DIY wall art idea requires only a couple of things: a large canvas, paint, and masking tape.
Create a geometric design of your liking with the masking tape on the empty canvas. Do press the tape in with firm hands so that splashes of paint don’t leak in. This is an important step, as it ensures that you get clean lines.
Take a paint brush and start splashing the canvas with different colors. Allow the paint to dry and then gently peel the tape. Lo and behold, you geometric abstract wall art is done.
3. Pencil Colors Rainbow Display
Known as the Aurora Display Case, this DIY wall art idea is so amazing that anyone who will see it will keep staring at it. The good news is that you can get this display custom made and then arrange the color pencils yourself.
It’s pretty easy actually but first, it’s time to visit a stationery shop. Get your hands on as many color pencils as you can and sharpen them to size. Arrange them according to shades and then start sliding in the pencils.
4. Old Window Picture Frame
Do you have those old barn-style windows? If yes, then go get it out of the garage. If you are out of luck, then head to your nearest antique store, and we bet you will find something there. This wall art is pretty easy to make. You have two options:
You can either blowup a single image and stick it behind the frame or you can print out several pictures and frame them in each square. To maintain the rustic look of the frame, print the pictures in black and white. A great way to make this display unique is to use pictures of your kid or yourself and create an “Age” theme. Start with a black and white picture of a baby and then add colors in small amount to every picture until the last one.
5. Show Box Displays
You must have gift wrapping paper lying around the house. Well, fetch it and the spray paint bottles from the garage. Again, you have two options here:
You can wrap the shoe boxes in art paper and mount them on the wall or spray paint them and create a shelf. Place light items in the boxes such as faux flower pots and figurines.
6. The Tiny Mirrors Wall
Dig in to you drawers, wardrobe, attic and basement, and find every wall mirror you can. Polish the frames, make the mirrors shine and check their back support. Now find an empty wall in your house that has absolutely nothing placed in front of or hanging from it. Hang the mirrors haphazardly on the wall and you are done. Yes, it’s as simple as that!
