Easy Art

Artwork wall elle decor


a must have in the home.

Cannot be forced.

Tends to be expensive.

With that being said, there are some easy and affordable alternatives to dressing up your wall. Although a little elbow grease IS involved. But just think- a trip to Hobby Lobby and 4 glue sticks later you could be on your way to becoming the next Picasso.

(And just to clarify- These pieces of art below are all valuable. And I do not discredit the artists! I just see things like this and think DIY. Do it yourself, it doesn't look too difficult.

Blow up a photograph or print on canvas...

Lauren from Pure Style Home sent her favorite print (which was originally an 8x10) to be enlarged at wizardprints.com. (I've used it before too- it's great!) Look at how much of an impact it makes in her dining room now...

Tape off a canvas in a grid and let your kids "color in the lines" with a few selected markers. Rip off the tape,

and Voila!
