Expensive-Looking DIY Wall Art Ideas But They Are On A Tiny Budget

Only with some crafting supplies and a little imagination, you can create your own expensive-looking DIY wall art in no time! Plus, each of these fabulous art ideas is surprisingly low-cost.

DIY Abstract Art


Large-scale abstract art pieces typically have equally large price tags. But with a few swirls of watercolor paint on a blank canvas, you can create your own free-form masterpiece for a fraction of the cost. The best part: You don’t have to be an artist or a professional painter to create a gorgeous work of art.

Minimalist Masterpiece


After you’ve replaced closet panels or interior doors, what should you do with the old ones? Turn them into art, of course! This DIY project uses unconventional materials (including doors as oversized canvas panels and a mop as a paintbrush) to create modern, monochromatic artwork that’s sure to spark conversation.

Sculptural Statement Piece

Hit the hardware store for inexpensive galvanized sheet metal to create this three-dimensional wall art. After creating diamond shapes, string them together using before hanging the arrangement from a curtain rod. A coat of metallic gold spray paint makes this sculptural beauty shine.

Plywood Painting


This DIY modern art makes an eye-catching statement piece for your mantel or gallery wall. Using budget-friendly materials like plywood and spray paint, you can easily create an oversize abstract art piece with bold color and personality.

Splash of Neon


Dry-erase boards act as the canvas for this easy DIY wall art. To achieve the splashy look, you’ll need a spray bottle of water and a few cans of brightly colored spray paint. Simply alternate spraying the boards with water and paint, blotting excess water with paper towels as you work. The process might be simple, but the results are incredible.

Simple Lace Art


Using lace and embroidery hoops, you can create a charming display of DIY wall art. You’ll simply layer lace pieces on top of floral fabrics and mount the fabric inside the wooden hoops. Select a variety of lace designs and add multiple layers to create unique textures. Once you’re happy with the look, trim any excess fabric and glue the edges to the backs of the hoops.

Pixelized Accent Wall


Create large, custom pixel-inspired artwork on the cheap using simple plywood or medium-density fiberboard (MDF) panel and crafts paint. Sand and clean the wood panel, then use a pencil to mark off a grid of same-size squares. Arrange crafts paint in the same color palette from light to dark. Assign a color to each square, keeping lighter colors at the bottom and darker colors at the top. Tape off and paint the squares, letting each dry before starting the next. To make some squares more transparent, add water to the paint for a watercolor effect.

Jewelry Ar

Display pretty baubles as framed art with this simple technique. This DIY wall art project uses inexpensive flea market frames to showcase vintage jewelry or cherished family treasures. Simply outfit the frames with fabric or paper, ribbon, and glass knobs to create an artful arrangement that doubles as jewelry storage.

Dipped Tassel Hanging


Whip up a creative and unique wall hanging in an afternoon! This tassel wall art features just a few materials and basic tools. Dip-dye the cording for added color and an on-trend ombre effect.

Thrift Store Reinvention


Update a thrifted piece of wall art for your home with geometric stitching. Simply remove the frame from the art and use embroidery floss to sew your desired pattern onto the image. Paint the frame, let dry, and reassemble. Hang your new piece of art on the wall, or simply set it atop a dresser or a mantelpiece to display.

Botanical Book Art


Let your walls bloom with beautiful homemade artwork. Find free botanical images online and print them on old book pages. To create a textural mat, cut linen a little larger than the page and machine stitch 1/4 inch from all edges. Fray the edges by pulling out threads down to the stitched line. Machine-stitch the page to the linen mat then hangs using bulldog clips.

Clothesline Frame


Show off your photos with this easy DIY framed collage. Create your own frame using canvas stretchers, then paint or stain it to your desired color. Add a fabric backdrop and string twine or picture-hanging wire across the frame opening. Clip-on photos or small mementos to create a personalized display of favorite memories.
