18 DIY Wall Art Pieces To Make Your Bedroom Look Super Creative

Wall art is one of those things you don’t realize you needed until you see how your room looks with it. Let me be more clear by using an IRL example! I recently moved out of my parent’s house and into my own place. This requires a lot of decorating (which is more difficult than it seems). It wasn’t until I put up a few photos that I realized how much better some of the rooms looked with wall art. I suddenly looked at these rooms and thought, “What was I thinking before? How did I ever think this room looked good without wall art?” I am now in search of the perfect pieces for my bedroom and a few other rooms, and I know my place won’t feel complete until I find them.

Whether it’s a photo, some kind of artwork, or a more graphic piece, wall art can make any room look more personal, creative, and put together. Adding items to your walls is an easy way to make your bedroom tres chic. The only problem? Wall art is expensive AF. A few weeks ago, I found a framed quote with artwork that I absolutely loved and wanted it for my bedroom. When I asked the salesperson how much it was, she said, “$800.” I nodded casually, pretended I had to bring my boyfriend back to look at it, acted like this $800 quote was something I could afford, and then left the store to gasp about the price with my mom.

Anyway. Wall art is pricey, so if you want some pieces to liven up your bedroom, you might be better off going the DIY route. Making wall art doens’t mean you have to be an artist. You just need a good tutorial, some art supplies, and a vision. Anyone can do it, especially with the easy tutorials below.
