Adding homemade wall art can enhance the decor of any room. There are plenty of affordable and easy-to-do wall art projects you can use to liven up your living space. While these projects may call for some effort and creativity, in the end you will have a custom one-of-a-kind work of art designed specifically for your interior decor.
If you enjoy collecting vintage or otherwise interesting textiles, stretching a swatch onto an embroidery hoop can make an attractive project that's quick and easy. Old kitchen towels, cloth napkins, dress fabric, embroidery and even sturdy lace can be used. Try grouping several together for a colourful central point of interest in the room.
Transform inexpensive coasters into works of art. Simply glue or use double-sided tape to secure the coasters onto a piece of colourful cardstock paper. Purchase some low-priced frames for mounting the coaster art. For thick coasters, use shadow boxes which can be purchased at most craft stores.
While classic bird and floral prints can be expensive when purchased from a professional dealer or frame shop, the same effect can be created using pages from a book. Select a book that features prints that will work well with your decor. Inexpensive clip-edge frames can be used to easily mount the prints. Use pieces of cardstock or scrapbooking paper behind the print, if needed, to fit properly in the frames.
Hang a large piece of corkboard and surround it with framing material. Collect postcards, magazine photos, family photos and greeting cards to create themed wall art that changes from season to season.
Purchase inexpensive placemats and create a repeating tilelike pattern on your wall. Drill a hole into the tops and bottoms of each placemat and connect them with a ball-link chain between each mat in a row. Hang each row from the top with nails or screws.
