You’ll fall 4 our fall wall art: 4 different DIY looks 4 the home

Tutorial: Textured paper wall art

Textured Art Triptych

Anyone else re-energized with the start of the fall season? I’ve already reorganized one room and hauled bags to Goodwill and furniture to the curb (and thank you to whoever adopted my curbside treasures). If part of your fall frenzy includes a little redecorating, I wanted to share a few suggestions for wall art inspired by the colors and textures of autumn. Some of the wall art ideas are easy, and others will take a little more time. But, they’re worth it!

The wall art was created by designer Kathleen George, and all of the project instructions are on www.styrofoamcrafts.com. To see how to make our fall wall art, just click on the photo.

First, how about the muted tones of the beautiful Falling Leaves Wall Art that I’m using as the blog banner? The metallic leaves, which add so much texture, are really silk leaves spray painted with metallic paints.

I shared this Woodland Birch Bark & Twigs Wall Art once before, but if we’re talking about autumn-inspired wall art, I have to share it again. It’s like a walk in the woods without leaving home. The yummy, pumpkin orange wall tells a fall story, too.

One rite of fall is a trip to the apple orchard (I made my first trip last Saturday). How about creating easy wall art using photorealistic scrapbook papers? Wouldn’t this Green Apple Wall Art look great in the kitchen? If you missed our tutorial on making scrapbook wall art, you’ll find it here. If apples aren’t your thing, you’ll find other photorealistic papers that might work for you, from fall leaves to donuts!

The colors and textures of our Textured Art Triptych make me think of fall. To make this striking art, Kathleen George layered textured papers, scrapbook paper, and stamped squares of polymer clay. Strands of raffia divide it in thirds. Simply gorgeous, and easier than it looks.

How do you celebrate fall? Do you visit the apple orchard? Take a hayride? Walk in the woods?

Happy crafting!

    I am a newbie to Styrofoam crafting, but really excited to get started on some Xmas gifts. The only problem is that I see something I like and decide, yup that’s the one. Then I see more and decision making is just not so easy anymore. But, I will tackle something for sure. Never knew a person could be so creative with Styrofoam!
