DIY wall art made with Pottery Barn bed linens – on sale now

Our Garden Bedroom Wall Art is so bright and cheerful, and one of the most popular DIY wall art ideas we’ve shown. I think there are two reasons why people love it. First, it’s a super easy way to make wall art. You cut apart a bed sheet and wrap the fabric around a 1” sheet of STYROFOAM Brand Foam. And the second reason – these bed linens from Pottery Barn are so darn pretty (and, organic).

Easy wall art

Our Garden Bedroom Wall Art is made from bed linens!

Whenever we show the Garden Bedroom Wall Art, I always receive questions asking where we purchased our fabric. If you like this look, I have good news – the duvet cover we used is on sale at Pottery Barn. I don’t know about you, but I find that Pottery Barn is kind of pricey. I don’t shop there often, and when I do, it’s always at the sale price. So, if you really like this look, buy it now while it’s on sale and before it sells out. One twin duvet cover is all you need to make the three, 1” x 12” x 36” panels we show.

You’ll find the step-by-step instructions on StyrofoamCrafts.com. If you’d like more wall art inspiration, check out the photos below from our series Great Décor in a Flash – Without a Lot of Cash. It’s all about easy, inexpensive decorating – who doesn’t like that? Each of the photos links to the step-by-step instructions. And you can also download our three, free home décor booklets.

DIY cheap wall art

Custom decorating tip -- tie together your room making wall art from napkins! We used one cloth napkin on each 1" x 12" x 12" foam square.

Vibrant Marimekko fabrics liven up a room, and it's a great way to showcase expensive fabrics while limiting your purchase to just a few yards.

For a walk on the wild side, decorate with animal print fabrics. You can get this look in an afternoon with fabric + foam.

I hope it’s o.k. that I took a break from Halloween crafting today. We’ll have more sweet & spooky Halloween ideas later this week. And speaking of sweet, I’m “cooking up” an idea for the Sizzix Fresh Vintage blog hop, which means we’ll have a bonus project tomorrow. Here’s the die I’m using this week – any guesses what I’m making? (Or, maybe I should say “baking” . . .)

See you tomorrow.

Happy crafting!

Sharon

    I like the look. Instant refresher and update to an otherwise ” so-so” room. We spent important times in the bedroom; and often so little time as either we do not prioritize “bed” time as important, or simply dont want to be there as it’s not NICE. Using STYROFOAM as a medium in making instant makeover, is a low cost, and easy way to gain back OUR RESTFUL TIME ! And we can always update our living room, dinning room, kitchen etc….with this easy and fun installation of wall art in using STYROFOAM !

      Thank you for the comment, Wilma. You bring up an excellent point — this is such an easy way to update a room. And once you’re tired of the look, you just remove the fabric and replace it with a new favorite.
