For this great looking wall art, all you need is some spray paint and primer, a canvas, a hot glue gun and a few empty rolls of toilet paper! You bend the toilet paper rolls and snip off pieces from each end to make little ringlets. Take the ringlets and spray them with primer and then whichever color of spray paint you wish. *Note: these will suck up a lot of paint. So make sure you have enough!*
After they’ve dried (drying times will vary depending on humidity and temperature) place them on your canvas in a design. You can follow this design, or branch out and do one on your own. You can also leave the canvas blank or cover it with wallpaper/wrapping paper or paint a design across it yourself. Once you’ve played around with it a bit and have the design locked-in, use a dab of hot glue to attach the ringlets to the canvas. Then hang it up anywhere in your home or dorm room.
The best part about using the hot glue is that, when you get sick of this design and want to do a different one or just utilize the canvas elsewhere, the hot glue chips right off with some elbow grease.
This wainscoting looks like it took skill and hours to put up, but you can easily set this up in any room of your home with a quick trip to the hardware store. These are ready-made PVC latticework panels that can be found in any hardware store. Purchase as many panels as you need, along with a chair rail to line the top of the panels. For an even better look, purchase some screen moldings to nail along the seams where your panels meet.
For this unique look, just purchase a few shadowboxes from a crafts store. Add a picture mat to create the white insert and then add some of your favorite blooms from the garden section at your local grocers. Add a tiny potted plant, flowers from your own garden, or even make some flowers out of paper. Change the plant or flower whenever you want a new look. For long-lasting décor, choose fake flowers, paper flowers, or plants that need little to no up-keep.
Typography and printed graphics look great, but can be expensive and hard to find. You can make your own typographic poster using your computer and a program as simple as Microsoft Word. Just type in your favorite quote, movie line, saying, or song lyric, and play around with different fonts and different colors. After you have it looking just the way you want, print it out. Then add your print to a frame with a piece of scrapbook paper behind it.
Add some garden baskets, typically used for plants and flowers on porches, to your nursery or children’s room to hold toys and stuffed animals. Keeping them lower to the floor will allow easy access for tiny tots. You could leave the baskets as they are, or spray paint them to match your décor. It also works as an accessories organizer in the bedroom for scarves or baseball caps, or add a few to your classroom or home office for additional wall storage.
If you love the pattern or design on wallpaper, but don’t necessarily want to overburden your room and make it look too cluttered, you can simply add hanging sheets of wallpaper as art. This not only cuts down on the cost, but also the time that it takes to hang wallpaper. Attach strips to a rod and use coordinating ribbon to hang on the wall. This looks great in the living room, bathroom, dining room, bedroom, or dorm.
Typography seems to be all the rage right now, and why not? This looks great! Pick up a few random letters or numbers (these can be significant to you, such as the first letter as your name or the month of your wedding anniversary) and arrange them in an appealing fashion on your wall. Try to pick some that aren’t all the same size or color to add the look of disarray. Toss a few inside a shadowbox to add depth and a great 3-dimensial look. You can even get creative and type something out on your computer, then print, and add to a funky frame. Keep the theme going with some decorative throw pillows, lamp shades, or rugs.
All you need for this art is some peel and stick circles, mat board, and some modern picture frames. Choose circles in the colors that match well with your décor to coordinate your look. And voila! This looks great anywhere: bedroom, living room, bathroom, kitchen, dorm room, office, or classroom. It’s easy, affordable and looks great.
Add a bit of funky twist to a blank wall in your home with some candleholders! These already had holes in the bottom and were easy to hang on the wall using nails. Add a pop of color to these, or keep them a neutral color with a bright wall. It’s cheap and looks great.
