Kilim-Inspired DIY Wall Art

Liz from Life in Projects loved a handwoven wool rug from West Elm. However, she says at $799 there was no way the rug would be making a debut in her home. That didn’t mean Liz couldn’t still incorporate the look into her space! Liz turned the design from the rug into wall art by simply “stamping” a drop cloth with the end of a piece of wood. I love how such a simple pattern can make such a impact!

Kristin from Bliss at Home has been collecting pieces to create the very first gallery wall in her home. Since many of items are smaller, Kristin wanted a feature piece and knew an abstract art collection she’d been eyeing from West Elm would serve as the perfect inspiration. The fun part of this project is that Kristin involved her boys in the creative process. She says, “I love that we made this together and that it will be the key piece to our gallery wall.”

Becca at From Gardners 2 Bergers shares her simple steps for creating DIY book page art on the computer. Becca asks, “Have you ever been to a restaurant and been like, ‘I should have just stayed home. could have totally made this food myself!?!’ Well guess what, this art is exactly like that!” Becca even had the genius idea to scan her book pages first so she didn’t have to sacrifice any actual pages. That means you could use a book checked out from the library or borrowed from a friend to create your art.

Monica of East Coast Creative wanted to incorporate a piece of woodcut artwork into her new kid-friendly gallery wall. However, at a whopping $1,600.00, it simply wasn’t happening. Monica says, “At that price, it had better grow into a money tree!! I’ll take my $6.99 version thank you very much.” Even better, Monica’s $6.99 version only took five minutes and a quick trip to Staples to create.
