Jumbo Watercolor Paint Palette Wall Décor

I love harboring my kids’ creativity and think an important part of that is creating a special space for them to display their work. Courtney of Crafts by Courtney made an adorable wall for showcasing her kiddo’s creativity with this jumbo paint palette and clipboard gallery wall. Courtney was able to make the paint palette for around $20 using a board and bottles of craft paint. It is perfect for adding color to a space and making a statement on a long wall.

Melissa of The Happier Homemaker added on to her eclectic gallery wall with an arrow she crafted from a dowel and clay. Once the pieces were dry, Melissa finished off the whole shebang with liquid gilding and then some paint to add depth and dimension. I love the character this adds to the wall!

Create Your Own Decorative Wall Plates

When you are considering wall décor options, you may not think about plates, but they are a fun way to add color and personality to a wall. Dena from Hearts and Sharts is always getting compliments on her plate wall, which is made up of her own unique creations – hand-me-down and Goodwill plates given new life with Dena’s favorite quotes, movie scenes, and designs. Dena shares her technique for transferring text and images to plates, so you too can create one-of kind decorative plates for your wall.

Paint Your Own Black and White Abstract Wall Art

After spending months slowly unpacking boxes in her new home, Sarah from Oh Sarah O! knew it was time to address the naked walls. She fell in love with abstract black and white paintings from West Elm, but by the time Sarah had the cash to purchase them, most of the designs were sold out. Sarah decided to grab a canvas and some paintbrushes from her stash and create her own DIY version of the abstract artwork. It’s amazing how similar it looks to the original!

Wooden Wall Map for a Pirate-Loving Lad

Kristen from Down Home Inspiration created this wooden wall map for her pirate-loving son’s bedroom. Kristen had been on the lookout for a relatively easy and inexpensive décor, and this DIY wall art fit the bill to perfection. Kristen already had the plywood on hand and simply used a projector to outline the land. For a personal touch, Kristen included a bay with pirate history that she and her husband had just visited for their anniversary.

Vintage Framed Map Wall Art

DIY Wall Art | Framed Vintage State Map at TidyMom.net

A few days ago I mentioned the State Pride Tour I hosted over at Infarrantly Creative and shared a Pottery Barn-inspired map triptych. Cheryl from Tidy Mom also participated in the fun, representing her home state of Missouri with a framed vintage state map. Cheryl cut her map into four pieces and then placed each one into frames she glammed up with some Rub N Buff. I love the combination of the sophisticated antique map and glitzy gold frames!

Framed Art from Old Book Pages

Elizabeth of Broken Treasure was inspired by framed art from Pottery Barn featuring images on dictionary print to create her own as a gift for her son’s teacher. Elizabeth pasted together pages from an Early Childhood Education book she had and then stamped on an image of dandelion seeds blowing away. This technique offers great possibilities for repurposing old books into DIY wall art, and I love the idea of creating a grouping of framed images that hold personal meaning.

Alphabet Wall Art with a Personal Touch

Anita from Inspired Passions first discovered the dreamy decorative world of Pottery Barn thanks to Rachel on Friends, and every since then she’s been hooked! Since Anita lives in the land down under and can’t actually have any of PB’s pretties delivered to her, she turns to DIY to get the same look. Anita made this amazing alphabet canvas for her son’s room using personal pictures and clipart. I love that she incorporated her faith into the pictures to make an awesome looking piece of artwork that is also packed with meaning!
