DIY Wall Décor Ideas

It is a universally established fact that bare and blank walls look dull and boring; thus, decorating the walls of your home is essential to add life into your living space. Investing in store bought wall décor items is a time-efficient and convenient way to do this, especially for working individuals. However, if you have a small budget and cannot afford to lavishly spend on wall décor, you can always make it yourself!

The easiest and most trendy DIY décor items to make are canvas paintings. All you need are some blank white cloth canvases, acrylic paints and paint brushes to start illustrating your artistic ideas. It is recommended to draw an outline of the thing you want to paint on the canvas using a pencil or marker, and then fill it with paint.

Another DIY painting option for wall décor is glass painting. Professional glass dealers recommend using solvent-based glass paint for glass paintings since it is specially formulated to bond permanently on glass surfaces. However, water-based acrylic paints and other options are also available for DIY crafters. Glass paintings will enrich your house with a magnificent old-world charm, since they serve as reminder of the renaissance period of art and an ode to stained glass windows of old European buildings.
