DIY Art That Will Rock Your Walls & World!

Jun 11, 2012 | Life With Art

While I am a huge advocate of buying and collecting art, there is also a great value in MAKING some art, too, especially when you display it!  I know, I know, you are not an artist, blah, blah, blah.  Truth is, everyone is an artist.  And these DIY art projects, like the painted and hung ceiling rosettes above from Apartment Therapy will change your mind on how “artistic” you actually are!  Here is a round-up of art projects that will get your walls- and your creative spirit- rolling! 

This pinwheel painting  by Elise Blaha (instructions HERE) can be customized to fit your favorite color profile, and made as large or as small as your heart desires.  It adds motion, visual interest and life force to whatever space you pick to hang it up! 


Oh Happy Day! kinda blew me away with their “How To Make Abstract Art” project.  I gotta say, the work is pretty good & easy to do in your own style.

Curbly’s very simple (if you are tech savvy, see HERE) take on Marimekko wallpaper will add grace and order to your walls.

Stretch some fabric on a canvas frame (or even in randomly-sized embroidery hoops!) and you will have a crazy-gorgeous wall of patterns and “art” with just about zero effort.

And you can get graphic and yet hyper simple in this art DIY from The New Domestic that just about anyone can do in a weekend.  Alternate the colors and patterns to make it your own personal art expression.

Ready to start making things? I AM!  Now that I’ve had all my walls repainted, expect some awesome Art DIY’s in the weeks to come!!! xoxo Dana

    Your link to ceiling rosettes doesn’t actually take you to them. Where can I find this wall art?
