Art is something many people don’t really put much effort in thinking about, and this is mainly due to the cost associated with it. However, recent trends and ideas have shown that this shouldn’t exactly be the case always. Art should be accessible to everyone, and there are several ways around the obstacle of costly art fixtures. DIY art projects such as framed works inside your house are one good way of sprucing up your living space while not breaking the bank.
Art prints would sometimes cost you an arm and a leg, but you don’t necessarily have to spend a fortune to procure these. If you like to decorate your home with large photos, images, and sprawling pieces, you can submit the artwork of your choosing to websites like Shutterfly or CanvasOnDemand, and they’ll create custom prints for you. They will then take care of shipping these prints right to your doorstep. Not only would this be hassle-free for your end, but it would cost far cheaper than getting one from an art gallery. Add to this the fact that you can order personalized canvas prints with your own choice of styles, sizes, and designs.
Unleash the Artist
Nothing speaks more of individuality and personalization than creating your own abstract art. This would cost far less than even a fraction of the cost of getting a print from a gallery. There are many ways you can create these types of art ranging from using household items and paint, pens and pencils, chains, and even brushes and furniture. There are many tutorials online, especially in social media, on how to create different types of abstract art. These are often made for those wishing to dabble in this field, and also for those who would want to refine their skills more. What are you waiting for then? Pick up that brush and better get started on your masterpiece now!
If you’ve ever come across a piece of wallpaper or fabric sample and fell in love with it, you can actually use these small pieces in your house without doing a full-blown makeover. Tearing down an entire wall’s furnishing and installing a new one would be an expensive and time-consuming process. Not to mention, the others who live in your house might not necessarily approve of such radical changes. In order to get around this though, you could simply frame a piece of the said wallpaper or fabric and hang it inside your house just like wall art. You would be amazed at the unique vibes such a small piece could bring into an otherwise bland or plain room. Not only that, you can use many of these within your house, choosing a different one to match the part of the house it’s hung from.
Houseplants and growing your own greens in the living room are the in thing in today’s concrete jungles. It doesn’t matter if you live in an apartment, a high-rise condominium, or have your own house in the suburbs. Even with limited space, it does not mean that you cannot enjoy the qualities and reap the benefits of growing plants. You just need to think a bit differently than if you had your own backyard or space with lots of soil and access to sunlight and water to grow your garden in. Creating your own framed plant masterpieces is one way of creatively displaying these greens inside your home. Instead of putting your plants inside pots, place them inside frames which have space inside, and can be hung from walls. You’ll be both adding new pieces of art to your walls while creating a special place for your fledgling jungle.
