DIY Decor: Wall Art Ideas!Wednesday, April 11, 2012
Instead of DIY instructions, today's post is a bunch of pictures of DIY wall-art I've made over the past few months. Hope this inspires you guys to do something fun for you walls! The next time I make something, I'll make a tutorial, promise!
1. Shoebox Canvas
I made this "canvas" using an old shoebox, some wall paint samples, and some stencils purchased from the dollar store!
2. Wax Paper, Glitter and Bows
For this one I used some cheap green ribbon, gold glitter glue that came in a squeeze bottle, and the same stencils shown above. I painted the roses on wax paper first, then covered a few of them in glitter. I wrapped the wax paper around a piece of coloured cardboard to make it a bit more sturdy.
3. Fleur de Lis
I designed the background with some French words, symbols and different fonts. (If you would like the background, be sure to let me know! I will email it to you. Or try to figure out how to post it so you can download it. Depends on demand.) Then I painted a stenciled shape (from the same set of dollar store stencils) onto a rectangle of paper, and lined two sides with ribbon. Stick the stencil on top of the French words and voila!
Pretty straightforward. Printed a quote, painted designs on it.
5. Dried Flowers
This wasn't the best picture, but it's what's on my wall right now. I used some dried flower petals and glued them over the ribbons. There is some more detail but since you can't see it, I won't bother making this confusing and long.
New tutorials coming soon, just need to find the time to write them!
