Hi I’m Ann and today I’m going to show you how to create wall art. And what is wall art people might ask. Wall art is anything that you want to put on a wall that might take the place of a piece of art work or a picture. And these days you can just really get out of the box and really have fun with it. I will show you different examples of things that I have done instead of just the normal straight picture. Things I’ve done to try create and make some interesting art pieces on the wall. I’m a decorator and I love using what people have and I love using frames and so this is an example of an old antique frame that I had and I have a small little miniature pear that was painted by my son.
And so all I did is put tape on the picture, put it on the wall. Used it as a mat. Used the wall that is showing as a mat and then put a frame up. And you have a great piece of artwork. I love using mirrors, mirrors will open up a small space. I love using three or four mirrors, a group of mirrors, they look great together. This is another frame and then I just put a little wood planter with putting some texture of an artichoke in.
So that is another great look. Other things to think about is creating texture. This is great basket, it’s an old antique French bread basket. And you could put this on the wall, it looks great taking everything else down. Hang it on the wall. And what you could do is fill it with like yarrow or a flower and you can have a neat dried flower here, but this would be great art piece. Think out of the box, go around your house, attic, basement look and see what you already have.
Old iron pieces, old interesting wood pieces. Just look at them and kind of, what I do is when I get something in my hand I just turn it around and work with it and think, ooh I can hang something on this or it would look great as a headboard. I just start playing with the piece and trying to come with as many ideas I can. This is Ann, have fun and this is how to create wall art.
