If you love the idea of wallpaper but don’t want to splash out the money on it, or aren’t sure what to go for, why not consider some funky DIY wall features. It’s a great way to create something unique and individual to you, and usually won’t cost much either. On my Pinterest Wall Art board, I’ve been collating some fabulous finds, and thought it would be a nice idea to showcase some of this creativity.
Washi Tape Wall Art:
I’ve seen this image from Land of Nord going around on Pinterest for a while now, so it must be very popular. It’s actually done with masking tape, but you could use washi tape too, in different colours and prints, if you want something more lively. This look is so easy to achieve, and you can change it up to suit your room and the available wall.
Paint Pen Wall Art:
The fabulous ladies over at A Beautiful Mess created this fun and funky wall feature using paint pens and cardboard stencils. If you hop over to the blog you can see the full tutorial. This couldn’t be simpler, yet it’s so effective. I’m really coveting a creative wall feature just like this. It could be a great New Year project.
I’ve loved Vintage Revivals since discovering it over a year ago, and adore following her Cricut creations. I noticed this great Sharpie Wallpaper post a while ago and it’s a great fit for this collection. Her tutorials are great too, and will fill you with confidence if you fancy giving something like this a go. Even if you don’t want to cover a whole wall, this pattern and idea would make a great piece of wall art too.
Painted Diamond Feature:
Another one of my finds over on Vintage Revivals, this time in the shape of this great geometric diamond feature, positioned above the chest. Again, the tutorial takes you through it step by step, even showing how to lay the masking tape. Another very simple, effective and cost effective way to create something unusual and inspiring.
DIY Patterned Wallpaper:
I discovered this great idea in my Love Your Home linky, where other bloggers link up their inspirational homes and interiors posts, and it’s really stuck with me. She Makes a Home put together this very simple idea of using wall stickers or triangle decals to create her own wallpaper. I think it looks great, very contemporary and totally on trend. Wouldn’t this be easy to create in your own home?
So, I do hope you’re feeling inspired by this creative selection of wall features. And do let us know if you decide to try any of this in your own home – we’d love to see how you get on.
