Draw Your Own Geometric Art

Lindsay of The Jensen Crew REALLY wanted to get her hands on a set of symmetry art prints, but all her leads came up dry. Just when she was about to throw in the towel, Lindsay found perfectly-sized frames and paper at Hobby Lobby. Could she possibly draw her own artwork? Amazingly, that’s exactly what Lindsay did. She says, “You never know what you can do until you try! I would have never thought I was an artist. But I can do shapes!!”

Scrap Wood Wall Art

Gretchen over at Gretchen’s Garage teamed up with her son on a snow day to turn scrap wood and leftover paint into a piece of wall art. The duo drew out their design on a piece of paper and then made the puzzle come to life with the cuts of wood and paint. For only $10 for the plywood backing, Gretchen got new wall décor AND a day of quality time with her son. Now that is something Pottery Barn can’t compete with!

Paper Flower Art

The second Nikki from Tikkido saw pictures of the striking paper flower backdrop from Chanel’s Spring 2009 show she knew she wanted to recreate it. Happily, she did! And it only cost her about $15. Nikki says, “It was perfect as a backdrop for the party I was designing, and now has a second life as a gorgeous, large scale art piece in my home.”

Framed Script Art

Sonny from 155 Dream Lane had to look twice when she came across a framed farm log from Williams-Sonoma that cost over $1,000. The kicker is that it’s just a print! Craziness. Instead of dropping a mortgage payment, Sonny grabbed a frame from her yard sale stash and some script wrapping paper she had and made a similar piece of artwork. With all the pretty papers out there, what a great idea to turn them into wall art!

Paper and Linen Wall Art

After staring at four blank dining room walls for over a year, Jessica from Stay at Home-ista was finally inspired to create her own artwork that would fill the walls but wouldn’t take a huge bite out of her wallet. Using frames from Ikea, linen, and handmade paper, Jessica managed to create four very large pieces  for less than $200. I love how the paper designs Jessica selected coordinate but all have their own flair. You’ll have to pop over to Jessica’s site to see all four!

Heart Tree Wall Art

On Infarrantly Creative I recently shared this heart tree wall art that I created as a baby shower gift for a friend. I love all the bright colors and modern style of this piece and think it will be a great fit for the nursery. I definitely couldn’t have pulled it off without my Silhouette Cameo! Maybe it’s just me, but I think Land of Nod’s Love Tree and my Heart Tree may have been twins separated at birth {wink}.

Leaf Silhouette Art

When Kandi from Kandi & Company fell in love with some pricey nature prints, she gathered inspiration from Pinterest and a can of spray paint to recreate it. By spraying over a floral pick placed on a canvas, Kandi was able to get the sun print look that she loved. Kandi says, “I was literally dancing up and down in my garage when this worked! I’m loving these little custom pieces of artwork in our room that I created for less than $5 a picture.”

Vintage Graphic Art

Johnnie from Printable Décor added a splash of color to her space with a trio of graphic prints. I love how Johnnie took this idea and totally made it her own, customizing it to fit her interests. Johnnie is so good that her prints look even better than her inspiration!  She is also sweet enough [...Read More]
