We’ve written a few posts about walls; from accent walls, bathroom wall mural ideas to choosing the best color for your bedroom walls — we have it. I mean, it’s a big part of every house, right? However, choosing a design or color for your walls can be overwhelming. Now, if you want a unique and one-of-a-kind one, then you can draw inspiration from our gathered six design-savvy do-it-yourself wall decors.
6 Easy Design-Savvy DIY Wall Decors
Decorating your walls shouldn’t be expensive nor necessarily be bought. Check out these 6 DIY wall decors:
Loud and Proud
If you or a family member has a knack in creating art crafts especially in the art of painting, then be proud of that skill and use it. Flowers, abstract, cityscape or landscapes are great subjects for the wall in your living room.
Reminisce Old Times
Head towards your attic or storage room and look for any old yet lovely fabric such as used printed blouse or skirt. Frame this fabric using an antique frame or make a frame out of pieces of wood. You may hang your framed fabric on your hallway or above our sofa in our living room.
In the Left Corner…
Decorating your wall does not necessarily mean focusing on the center. Your bedroom’s corner walls can be a great space to put on your collections. Artworks or photos that can be grouped and formed into different shapes is also a good idea.
Put Some Texture or a Different Paint Design
Paint your wall with your choice of color and use a brush or a sponge to create a pattern while the paint is still wet. Your old painted wall can be decorated with a new design. Cover a roller brush with plastic and keep the plastic in place with a rubber band.
Pour in a maximum of three colors or your roller tray. Arrange the colors and pour them on different areas of your tray according to your choice or order (e.g. red on left, white in the middle section, and orange on right). Use your roller brush covered in plastic to spread the paint on your old wall.
Decorate your wall above your headboard with paper cut flowers or plastic flowers. Glue or sew your artificial flowers on strings. After which, hang the strings on a piece of stick which you’ll place above your headboard.
Here’s the last and one of the most fun wall decor…
Origamis on a Canvas
Origami paper cubes are great for your child’s bedroom wall. We have found a step by step guide on how to create the origami paper cubes. Below are detailed steps while you can look up for the images from this guide.
To makes these paper cubes, prepare 6 pieces of square paper. Try using different colors of 6 x 6 inches origami paper. Although a regular copy paper will also do.
Step 1: Begin by folding a piece of paper in half, and then open it back up.
Step 2: Fold each side over to the center line and crease it well.
Step 3: Flip the paper over.
Step 4: Fold the bottom left corner up and over to the right and crease it well.
Step 5: Then fold the top right corner over to the left and crease it well.
Step 6: Turn the paper so that the points face directly up and down. Fold the top corner down and crease.
Step 7: Next, you have to fold the bottom corner up and crease.
Step 8: Fit the pieces together by sliding the end flap of one piece into the centerfold of another.
Then add another paper section and continue adding paper sections.
Place your origamis on canvas and frame them. Butterfly origamis are also visually appealing to look at which can adorn your living room walls too.
Walls shouldn’t always be boring because there are tons of ways to spruce them up. You can paint them in a non-traditional color, a wall mural, or a DIY wall decor. Which one of these did you like the most?
