Autumn is one of those seasons that instantly whips up a riot of colour and swirling leaves. There’s nothing I love more than getting crafty with DIY wall art in Autumn and displaying those beautiful, vibrant colours on my walls.
Today’s inspiration came from a beautiful Berry red dress that I saw in Good Housekeeping magazine! As soon as I saw it, I knew that I had to get my stash out and start creating.
The Easiest DIY Wall Art You Can Make This Autumn
So, are you ready to get started?
For this DIY Wall Art project, I collected:
- 6×6 Scrapbook paper
- Vintage sewing pattern tissue paper
- White crepe paper
- White tulle/netting
- Fabric and piece of card
- Sewing Machine
- Old music book in German
- Large leaf sprayed Gold
- Bostik Glue Dots
- Foam Pads (Bostik)
- Bostik Blu Stick
- Small clothes peg for hanging
- Maggie Holmes Stickers (text)
- Blue Glitter Leaf – Maggie Holmes Ephemera
DIY Wall Art Step one:
Start arranging your papers. Playing around to see which style suits you best because you don’t want it to stress you out! It’s crazy how much pressure we put on ourselves to create something perfect. So enjoy yourself.
Choose a background with a beautiful, contrasting pattern as a third layer.
Glue the sewing pattern to the background and use Bostik glue dots to attach the crepe paper. Then place the contrasting paper on top of the tissue paper and crepe paper, at the bottom.
DIY Wall Art Step Two:
Ensure that the vintage book paper is slightly smaller than previous layers. This vintage book was only 5” wide which worked out well for my layout. I folded and tore the strips from the corners to maintain the ragged edges.
DIY Wall Art Step Three:
Use a couple of glue dots to attach your spray painted leaf to the centre of your card.
Grab Your Sewing Machine
Stitch a small piece of interesting material to a piece of card and leave the threads hanging loose for extra texture and interest.
Use glue dots to attach the card to the leaf.
DIY Wall Art Step Five:
Use a glue dot to attach a blue glitter leaf and then add the text sticker on top. Et voila!
For extra interest:
Add splatters of gold ink on the background page if you want a little shimmer!
This DIY wall art was some of the easiest that I’ve ever created! I had the whole layout finished and displayed on my wall in about 30 minutes.
