One of the best ways to add color and personality to your home is by adding wall art. Not just any wall art though. Wall art that you have created. Maybe not from scratch, but something that reflects your tastes and interests. I made my own DIY Christmas Wall Art and loved the way it turned out. Of course it’s been packed away and I wanted something to replace it. I made my own DIY Watercolor Wall Art from graphics I purchased on one of my favorite websites. Angiemakes.com has the most amazing watercolor graphics. I purchased these Flowers and Leaves for such a reasonable price and they look like real watercolor images.
The total cost for this entire project was under $30.00. The frames were half price at Hobby Lobby which made them $5 each. The mat boards were $2.99 each. I also purchased 3 pieces of textured card stock (.59 each) from the scrapbook section. I used PicMonkey to design the art work and my trusty inkjet printer to print them out. You can sign up for PicMonkey in less than a minute. It’s free and very easy to use. This would also be super simple to do in Microsoft Word or any other word processing program.
After I printed out my flowers, I taped them to the back of the mat board. It holds them just enough so they don’t move around. Also, I can change them without damaging the mat board. Popping them in the frames took just a few minutes.
I think we’re all ready for a breath of spring. This new wall art was just the thing to brighten my entry. Go ahead and treat yourself to some new DIY decor or a bunch of tulips from the grocery. It won’t break the bank and you will feel so much better!
