today I have a special guest, sharing a great diy personalized wall art idea…
Hit it Matt!
Hello all of you Debbiedoo’s readers, it’s Matt
from The DIY Village! My wife, Jacque has given me a special one-day hallpass
away from our Never-Ending Honey-Do-List and as my first time here as a special
contributor, I’d like to share a quick and easy DIY Wall Art project with all of
I’ve recognized a trend where personalized wall
art has really become a decorating MUST in a lot households. I
think it’s pretty cool to visit someones house and find their walls adorned with
unique pieces of art that are not only visually pleasing, but art that shows
something about who they are or what’s important to them. So that’s why I chose
the wall art that you’ll see today! Creating your own DIY Wall Art is a great
project whether you’re looking to add a “personal” touch to a wall in your own
home or you’re looking for a quick and affordable DIY gift idea for someone
else! So let’s jump right in!
Step 1: Come up with a stencil.
You can buy them at your local craft store, have a local sign shop make one for
you, or if you’re like us and lucky enough to have your own vinyl cutter, you
can make your own!
Step 2: Choose the substrate or
surface you plan on using for your wall art. (Luckily, we’ve got a close family
friend who just so happens to be replacing planks on his barn and was kind
enough to offer us his old barn wood! What a score!)
Step 3: Whether you are using a
store bought stencil or using vinyl, you’ll need to secure it to the substrate.
If you are using vinyl, you’ll need to apply transfer tape over your stencil and
remove the backing material to secure it to the art surface. With a store
bought stencil, taping it in place should be sufficient.
Step 5: Add a fastener or hanger
onto the back and all that’s left is to display your DIY Wall Art with
Our artwork is one of a kind and who knows
someday we may be passing this down to future generations!
