Who doesn’t love to drool over the amazing home decor from Anthropologie and Crate and Barrel?
I don’t know about you, but I don’t really have the means to spend tons of money on non-essential things like wall decor, even if it would be the perfect thing to tie the room together.
One thing I love to do is get inspiration from those high-end places and figure out ways to create similar DIY wall art and stay within our budget.
It’s easy to neglect your walls when you’re trying to save money, but you deserve to have beautiful surroundings.
Having some art that you love on your walls puts you in a better mindset and makes you feel better. You’ll feel even better knowing you made those amazing pieces of art yourself!

Punch Needle DIY Wall Hanging
This Punch Needle Wall Hanging was my ode to the woven wall hangings that I just can’t get enough of when I’m scrolling through Pinterest.
If you are a punch needler who hasn’t tried weaving yet, this is a great way to make your own beautiful wall hanging with what you already have on hand.
You can easily change up the colors and the design to match your own decor and it’s a great stash buster project to use up any random yarn you have laying around.

Painted Driftwood DIY Wall Art
With some driftwood and paint, plus a few other supplies, you can create this beautiful DIY coastal wall decor.
If you don’t have driftwood readily available where you live, you can buy it online.
This would look amazing in the living room, bathroom or guest room and you could customize the colors to complement your decor.

Wood and Wire DIY Wall Art
This unique wall art idea uses wire to embroider a feather design on wood and I think it is so clever!
You could make a series of these and they’d look great in your living room or kitchen, or any other room where you want to add some texture and modern design elements.
There’s a good chance you already have the needed supplies in your craft stash, but if not they’re still budget-friendly!

Rainbow DIY Wall Hanging
If you’re looking for a DIY project to add a pop of color to your walls, this is it!
All you need is some yarn and cotton macrame rope (plus a few other things) to make this beautiful rainbow wall hanging that would be perfect in a nursery or a playroom, or whatever room you want to brighten up.
This is another great yarn stash buster. My fellow yarn hoarders will have plenty of yarn stockpiled to make a few of these colorful pieces of art!
You can also use variegated yarn that gradually changes hue to get a totally different effect.

DIY Geometric Wall Art
Check out this barn quilt inspired piece of geometric wall art. The idea is simple, but the impact is huge!
It has a beachy coastal vibe and also has a modern feel with geometric shapes. I love the color, blue is my favorite!
If you bought a piece of art like this in a home store, it would cost an arm and a leg. The supplies to make it yourself are totally affordable, though (and you may have them laying around already!)

These boho-inspired triangle shelves are everywhere right now. Who knew you could make one of your own so easily?!
This is the perfect DIY to spruce up your bathroom, foyer, or really any room of your home. You may have all the supplies you need for this project on hand!
Even though this is a shelf, I feel like it’s a piece of art on its own and I love the look of it.
A few of these grouped together would look gorgeous with some leafy green house plants.

What a fabulous idea for preserving baby clothes, favorite tee-shirts, or really anything that you can fit into a shadow box.

You can find shadow boxes on sale at Michael’s and other craft stores and they’re definitely affordable. Don’t forget your coupon!
This one is on my to-do list for sure! See more about these DIY Framed Keepsakes here.
