There are so many ways we like to fill our walls these days. Just a little creativity and you can have amazing displays tailored just for you and your family. Wall art recently has become more and more personal and you don’t have to spend a fortune either.
Last year I showed you how to create a wall collage and since then I’ve been finding lots of great ways to add interest to plain walls and marvelling at how creative people can be.
Here are some great ideas that I’ve discovered recently, for creating amazing wall art:
A great way to co-ordinate your wall art with the rest of the decor is to use matching or contrasting wallpapers for instant pictures. Make sure you have a recurring theme, whether that’s the frame type or colour, or the pattern through the paper as in the case above. Giving it that theme will create unity and harmony when you put it on the wall, and will ensure it looks amazing!

Using small shelves like these designed for displaying photos and frames can look stunning. The beauty of designing wall art in this way is that, whenver you feel like it you can chop and change it around. As I mentioned above, notice how this person has used a theme throughout the display, using only black and white images with just black or white frames. It gives the look definition and creates real impact. You can buy shelves like this from Ikea.
Many of us with children adore using images of them to create wall art displays. I’ve done it myself and I love it. Creating a custom canvas is really easy these days and there a many sites where you just upload your images, play about with the effects and create your own, unique piece of wall art. Whether you want to be as dramatic as the display in this image is completely up to you. Remember the children grow up and change and you may feel like the images are dated after a while. If you’re willing to look past this, then this is a great way to personalise your home.
Isn’t this stunning! Using a shaped hole punch, cut out from paint colour cards. Stick onto a canvas selection and mount on the wall. What a fabulous idea and what impact it has. I’m going to try this one myself!
