The coolest DIY Wall Art – ever! (And a winner)

Yesterday, I mentioned that one thing led to another this week, and I’ve saved the best for last. In today’s big reveal, I’m featuring one of my all-time favorite DIY wall art projects – the Rectangle Wall Sculpture by Kathleen George. And you’ll see what I mean by one thing led to another in the photo below, which includes both the Architectural Finials from yesterday and the Button Deco Cube from earlier in the week.

This is all DIY decor! Gorgeous. CraftsnCoffee.comIsn’t this a gorgeous piece of DIY wall art? And can you believe it’s made with two basic supplies – balsa wood and STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam? I have Kathleen’s tutorial and the cutting diagram on, and she’ll walk you step-by-step through the process. And think about how you can change it up – make it smaller or larger, change the colors, add more texture, or even decoupage on papers.

This wall art is gorgeous, and there's a tutorial for it on

This wall art totally transforms the space!

In some ways, it’s similar to another favorite wall art idea on Crafts ‘n Coffee – the Garden Wall Art. The Garden Wall Art shares the layered look, but without the balsa wood accents. The Garden Wall Art will give you some idea of how the Rectangle Wall Sculpture might look if you covered it in pretty scrapbook papers instead of paint.

Beautiful wall art made with scrapbook papers and Styrofoam.

      These papers are beautiful, and of course, you can always change them up if this isn’t your colorway. Think how cool these would look in a black & white color scheme! Happy crafting. Sharon

    Congratulations to Studio Rose for winning! I love the garden wall art. My husband has lots of the balsa wood that he uses to make airplanes. I wonder if he would noticed if I took some to make that art piece.

    Whoo-hoo! Coincidentally, I was just last night looking at a project in my favorite magazine that uses burlap as one of the supplies and thought to myself, “Self, you need to get some burlap!” You are secretly a geniem, because my burlap wish has come true! Thanks so much; I’m very excited about the burlap and also can’t wait to see the bling!

    • Sharon says:

      Congratulations! I guess you were sending brain waves out into the craftmosphere! I’m curious — which magazine is your favorite magazine? I’m wondering where you found your burlap craft inspiration? Sharon

    This cool wall art can help change your home to modern, country, eclectic, cottage style in just a matter of a few hours of fun craft time!

    • Sharon says:

      I like how you think, Angie, and I hadn’t thought of it that way. You’re right, this could totally change up your style, depending on how you finished the piece. Great ideas! Thank you! Sharon

    I like that first picture it’s very modern. Just our style.

    I am definitely getting the goodies to make the Rectangular Wall Art! So cool! Thanks for the inspiration!

    • Sharon says:

      It is a really cool project! So glad you’re inspired, Barb. Where would you hang it? And do share a photo of your wall art! Sharon
