These Budget Friendly DIY Wall Art Ideas are going to make you walls look like Amazing!
There is just something about fresh artwork on the walls that makes me smile… how about you? You don’t need expensive art to make a happy wall. You can catch great sales on frames and it is never a bad idea to have some in reserve! Maybe you have some wood scraps about that you can turn into frames? Don’t forget… Clipboards make great art displays and you can easily change out the creation. You can also head towards the Thrift Shop and pick up some unique frames on the cheap and then upcycle them in your unique style. Then the time comes to fill them up. Well there are so many ways… let’s take a look…
There is a plethora of them on line and if you would like… you can start right here at The Cottage Market and check out our Free Printable Gallery and Our Daily Free Printables. 1000’s to choose from.
You know you have them… the ones that you just couldn’t stand the thought of throwing them away? Well maybe you can adapt them to framing.
Sometimes greeting cards are so gorgeous or funny or unique or colorful they make great art! I have to share one of my secrets for quick fun art and that is picking up some very unique and wonderful greeting cards at Trader Joe’s… they are $.99 and instantly framable!
Children’s Art Gallery
One of the best ways to provide you with the best art in the world… have your children create some special art for the walls or use all the favorites you have collected for years (hard to choose but you can do it). It is so much fun to actually create a Gallery Wall of all their are… looks great and makes them feel amazing!
Create Your Own Art
There are so many art projects out there so why not get your inner Van Gogh on and go for it! From Abstract to Realism… you do you!
Check out this fun little tutorial Lucy put together for inspiration. Or just give yourself the space to create from within… whatever subject… whatever medium … whatever moves you!
Sometimes you are just looking for a design… a pattern… a pop of color… well then why not try framing a piece of wonderful wallpaper or even scrapbooking paper(you won’t believe the choices out there) … with a cool double matt and the right frame… it truly can be a work of art! If you can get your hands on wallpaper books… that is a BONUS!!!
Frame Some Lace or Doilies
Love the Granny Chic and Cottage Core Decor… how about taking some different shaped embroidery hoops… maybe give them a coat of paint or stain and simply pop some beautiful lace into them… ez…pz… and beautiful. You can also frame doilies and other memorabilia such as postcards… patches… pins and so on! They are not only art but keepsakes!
Jewelry Storage as Art
How about taking a pretty frame… put a great backing on it… could be stained or painted wood… decoupaged wood… whatever you like… add some hooks and display your favorite jewelry. Storage… organization and art… what more could you want!
Thrift Store Reinvention Art
Check out the Framed Art Section at the Thrift Store… you never know what you are going to find… but this time… look for something that you can add a special touch too… totally reinvent the piece of art for you! It could involve adding flowers to a piece… a doggie… a kitty … maybe some geometric patterns… splattering… or you can go the way of totally personalizing and adding a character like the one featured. A simple impressionist rendition of a Paris Street night… well a visitor was added lol… I actually bought one of these pieces for my son who is a forever Ghostbuster’s fan (btw… so am I). Who knows… you might find a Farm scene and you could add a Darth Vader for your Star Wars Fan… or a beautiful sky scene and add The Green Goblin zooming towards Spiderman or how about Lady and the Tramp in front of an Italian Restaurant!!! You get the picture… the embellishment can be simple or totally over the top… think of all those possibilities! Not only is it budget friendly…but fun to do!
Botanical Book Art
Botanical Art is oh so very popular and all you really have to do to have an amazing Gallery is to pick a book with fabulous Botanical Art in it… frame them and hang! It’s that simple … trust me… you are going to love it! You can pick up all kinds of used books at the Thrift Store and one book to look out for is old dictionaries… some have color plate pictures randomly inserted throughout the book and they are simply gorgeous! Oh the possibilities!
All Kinds Of Book Art
We spoke of the Botanical Gallery… but through the world of books… any Gallery is possible. From Children’s Nurseries to a Baseball Lovers Dream or an Astronomers delight and the list is infinite. Bring a wall of art alive from a book! You will have tons of fun picking out frames… matts… backgrounds and more! You can even frame an entire book or book cover! Enjoy!
Actual Book Art
Sometime the book itself along with the pages can become the art! Wouldn’t something like this look incredible in an office… den… or library!
I think you will love this project. Lauren share a great way to not only preserve old recipe written in the hand of your Mother, Father, Grandmother, Aunt, Grandfather or any other loved on in your life but it doubles as art! My Grandmothers Recipe for Zeppole hangs proudly and lovingly on my wall to be passed down through the ages! You can also frame recipes in your favorite frame or transfer them on to plates to hang… one again the possibilities are endless. Don’t you love art with real meaning!
There is nothing like a wonderful Photo Gallery to adorn your walls! Could be family… friend… pets (which are family)… or it could be photos of any subject matter. Black and White… Color… or Mixed… one size frame or a variety and the list goes on! You can’t go wrong with this one!
Postcards are wonderful! A great size… they can be single or grouped. They can be postcards you have received from family and friends over the years or a collection that you have or just a collection of ones you went and bought that you loved! Oh the possibilities!
Collect them… pick them up at the Thrift Store and restore them… make your own… add them to Wall Galleries or make an entire Mirror Wall Gallery. They will shine on your walls!
Wall Hanging are all the trend right now and they are really wonderful. You can go for whatever look you want and you control the color pattern too! Love the cool Boho creations that really work in so many different decors. You usually only need some wood dowels and fiber!!! Could be just what you need.
Embroidery is another art form that is on a resurgence for sure! People that never picked up a needle are doing it now and the creations they are making are fabulous! You can go small or large or whatever size you want! You can make some incredible artwork for your walls too! You know what else is really cool… it doubles as art and a hobby so you save both ways! Drop by this blog… especially if you are a beginner because she is sharing the basics of embroidery!
There are so many things you can create on a budget that will make your walls smile!!! Let your creativity soar!!!
