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.
Isn’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 StyrofoamCrafts.com, 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.
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.
The Rectangle Wall Sculpture is not the easiest, but it is packed with one-of-a-kind style. If it’s fast you want, check out our series Great Décor in a Flash – Without a Lot of Cash. It’s all free!
I’m also going to finish the week by announcing the winner of our “Burlap and Bling” prize package, which includes a few of the favorite products from SNAP. (And a big “thank you” to FloraCraft for sponsoring the giveaway.) Today’s winner is Studio Rose. Please contact me, Studio Rose, for the details.
It’s already mid-May! What are your weekend plans? Weddings? Graduations? Gardening?
I’ll see you next week with a few summertime craft ideas.
