Today’s DIY wall art ideas all have one thing in common – Amy Butler. I am a big fan of her fabrics, papers and other embellishments. Her studio is just a few hours down the road in the charming town of Granville, Ohio, so I like to think that we’re almost neighbors (very wishful thinking!). Amy’s beautifully expressive papers and fabrics can really punch up your décor, and because you’re going to DIY the wall art, you’ll find it’s an inexpensive way to decorate, too.
Diane Flowers created this Vintage Modern Wall Art and Hydrangea Cubes from Amy’s Belle scrapbook paper collection, produced by K & Co. These pieces were made a few years ago, but you can still find the collection on line. Or, use your own favorite line of scrapbook papers for a very different look. The photo links to the project instructions on StyrofoamCrafts.com.
I’ve also made a few pieces of wall art from Amy’s fabrics, like this Tree Peony fabric in the Lotus line. While I no longer have this wall art, it would look great in my bedroom. You make this wall art just like the Garden Bedroom Wall Art on StyrofoamCrafts.com, so click on through for the tutorial.
This sky blue Wall Flower print is also from the Lotus fabric collection. To make these, I used two, 1” x 12” x 18” sheets of STYROFOAM Brand Foam. I cut my fabrics 3” – 4” larger on each side, and then wrapped the fabric around the foam sheet, just like wrapping a package. Take extra care to fold the fabric neatly around the corners. Then, you pin and glue the fabric to the back and you’re done!
Here’s our final Amy Butler wall art inspiration – a collection of nine, 12” foam squares, each wrapped in fabric. Coordinate your entire room and use the same fabrics to make pillows, valances, even tablecloths.
If you ever get tired of the look, you just change out the paper or the fabrics. You can remove the originals, or just cover over them with something new. So, if you’re renting, or just like to change your mind a lot, this is a cheap & easy way to decorate.
Thank you for stopping in today. I hope you’ll tell me what you’re working on. And join us on Facebook so you can post photos of your creations.
