These 35 DIY wall art ideas include inexpensive art ideas that anyone can make – even if you have zero artistic ability!
Hanging art on the walls is one of the biggest things that really helps bring a room to life. It’s what helps make a room truly personal to you and your family, rather than a generic space where anyone could live.
But a lot of times, we lose all of our decorating steam before we even get to wall art. Figuring out what to put on the walls can be daunting and buying art can get expensive fast.
That’s why I love creating DIY wall art. When you make your own art, you can create art in exactly the colors and styles you love. And it usually only costs a few dollars in materials.
This collection of wall art ideas includes art in a wide range of styles, from farmhouse to boho to modern. There are abstract canvas paintings, wall hangings, wooden signs, unique frames, map art, and more.
