Easy & inexpensive DIY Wall Art is #1 on Crafts ‘n Coffee

Woo-hoo! Crafts ‘n Coffee is celebrating its one-year blogiversary. Today through Friday, I’m revisiting the most popular features from the past year and announcing a daily giveaway. Hands down, do-it-yourself wall art and custom decorating techniques were the top two posts this past year: Fast & Fabulous DIY Wall Art Ideas with scrapbook paper; and Home Dec Tutorial: DIY Custom Wall Art with Fabric + Foam. It looks like you love your home and you want to find easy and inexpensive ways to decorate. I’m so glad I can help!

Here are the photos from Fast & Fabulous DIY Wall Art Ideas, and each photo links to the step-by-step tutorial on StyrofoamCrafts.com. This wall art is all made with scrapbook paper, which means your choices are almost endless – and inexpensive. You really can make nine, 12” x 12” panels of scrapbook wall art in just a few hours and for less than $50.

    I actually have made a set of 4 with the coordinating papers for my living room, and they need updating, so I love this giveaway!

    My office at work has plain, white walls…this would look really terrific on those walls!

    • Sharon says:

      Great idea for office walls — these are so lightweight that you don’t even have to pound nails into the wall. You can hang the scrapbook paper wall art with poster putty. Thanks! Sharon

    So glad you all stopped in! Bedrooms, living rooms, hallways — this wall art technique is a great way to add “wow” to any of these rooms. The hardest part will be choosing your scrapbook papers — so many gorgeous papers out there! Sharon
