I’m sharing a few easy-to-make DIY wall art ideas for you to quickly add some new decor to your walls!
This is a busy week in my neck of the woods – working more at the office, being good about working out regularly, painting the pergola structure in our backyard, and family coming from out of town for the weekend! Needless to say, not a lot of DIY happening here… But, that doesn’t mean YOU can’t be doing some quick and inexpensive DIY wall art over your weekend!
The two projects I want to share with you are pieces I hung above my sofa table from last week’s post. See the green geometric print and the embroidery hoop wreath? Yep, you guessed it, those were both DIY projects that only took me a few minutes each and cost me next to nothing! I thought it would be fun to share these simple ideas with you in case you’re in need of a few new pieces of wall art in your home. 🙂

DIY EMBROIDERY HOOP WREATH
- Embroidery Hoop (Mine is 16″ in diameter but you could do it with any size you want)
- Faux Floral Stem
- Hot Glue Gun
Using some wire cutters, I cut the main portion of the stem off so just the floral part was left. Then I began by placing my floral stem on the bottom of the hoop a few different ways to see where I like it best. Once I had it set in the hoop like I wanted, I applied some hot glue to the “stem” end and glued it into place.
I then glued down the main stem about half-way through to get the entire stem nice and solid.
After getting the main stem glued on, I noticed there was a certain section of the floral stems that wanted to go a different direction than I wanted, so I chose to glue down one of them as well.
Lastly, I had one tiny floral stem from the bottom of the main stem I cut off to use, so I glued it over the end of the main stem where it had been glued down to hide the glue.
And that’s it!
Isn’t it so fresh looking? And still a bit “vintage” feeling with the embroidery hoop. 🙂
I got this idea from Erin @cottonstem‘s bedroom:

DIY GEOMETRIC PRINT
- Frame (Mine is 16×20, but again, could do any size you want)
- Geometric Wrapping Paper (Mine is from Dollar Tree!)
Open up your frame and removing the back. Place this back piece on top of your wrapping paper and trace the size of paper you’ll need to fill the frame. Cut out your paper, place it in the frame, and viola!
You’ve got a new geometric print to hang on the wall!
See, weren’t those SO EASY! I got the embroidery wreath and floral stem at a garage sale last weekend for like $1 total – can’t beat that. And I had both the paper and frame on hand for the geometric print, so I’m feeling good about my $1 gallery! 😉
See you next time!
