To me, nothing can make a house seem less inviting than bare walls – so I started looking for ways to design my own wall art that were easy and still appealing.
I appreciate beautiful and complex art, but there is no way that I could make any of it by myself. I also couldn’t buy it…because, more often than not, art is really expensive. Even framed canvas prints are costly.

Armed with an idea in mind, I was on the hunt for several DIY wall decor ideas that anyone could do. Some of these are aimed at children, but that just tells me that I’ll be capable of mastering them. Because NOBODYwants a wall covered with art that looks as though it was made by kids.

Tips for Easy DIY Wall Art
Here are a few ways to make your personalized wall art express who you are and give your walls a new look quickly and easily.
The things you hang on the walls of your home will tell your guests the story of who you are. Keep this home decor tip in mind when you are choosing projects and you’ll have a cohesive design when you are done.
Positioning the wall art takes practice. Too high, and your guests will get a crick in their neck. Too low and you’ll have them wondering why you have nothing up higher. These tips for positioning the diy wall decor will be helpful.
Start simple. Don’t choose projects that require a silhouette machine to look good. Choose materials that you have handy to keep the cost and ease of the project down.
Re-purpose items. Even simple things like an old scarf, or some cupcake liners can get turned into a wall art project if you think outside the box.
DIY wall decor ideas don’t have to cost money. Take a trip to a wall paper store and see if they have old books of wallpaper. These could end up becoming framed prints and would make perfect and easy wall art ideas.
