Pull up a chair (preferably a red one), and take a peek at the BIG impact a little DIY wall art can have. If you have a dark corner, an empty hallway, or an unused and overlooked nook, dressing up the small space with colorful wall art you made yourself can be transformational. You don’t need a lot of cash or time to get this look. I made the DIY wall art we show here in minutes with scrapbook papers and fabric. (And please weigh in on the question I ask below.)
A red chair makes a statement, doesn’t it? Pair it with paper and you get the super-charged nook you see above. Three sheets of high-impact scrapbook paper on a 12” x 36” x 1” sheet of STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam create a contemporary corner that commands attention. No more dark and overlooked spaces here.
We then took the same red chair and made a warm and cozy respite, adding dash with lightning fast wall art. These two, 12” squares are covered in cloth napkins – yes, napkins. The dots on the wall are 6” discs of STYROFOAM Brand Foam covered in paper, with ribbons wrapped around the 1” edges.
You won’t even need to pound holes in the walls to hang this artwork. It’s so lightweight that poster putty or self-adhesive hanging strips will work.

Now, a question for you. I changed up the type font on Crafts ‘n Coffee this week and I’m not sure I like it. What do you think? Did you notice? Is it easier to read? Should I change it again? I’d love to know what you think. Thanks!
