DIY Wall Hangings - creative ways to fill a blank wall

Your home should reflect you and your creativity. This can be accomplished through what you choose to display on your walls. But what do you do if you are drawing a blank? This happens all of the time. Especially if you are facing a large blank wall in a room or if you’ve just moved into a new home.

How do you fill all of that space with things you love – and have it look good?

Decorating Your Walls

Many people go straight to the idea of a gallery wall and cluster framed photos together. This does fill the space, but the idea of a photo gallery wall has really been done way too much and doesn’t really show your creativity.

What can I put on my walls instead of framed photos?

Traditionally, people will add framed photos, paintings and mirrors to decorate the walls in their home. We’re not going to talk about those today. Today is about the non-traditional! Today is about wall hangings.

What is a wall hanging?

Just as the name implies, it is a decorative piece that is hung on the wall of a room. This includes the traditional items I listed earlier, but also includes things made from wood, glass, metal, paper, fabric and even yarn. These are the types of wall hangings I’ve collected below.

Why go the DIY route?

As with any DIY project, you are sure to save a bunch of money by creating what you love yourself instead of purchasing it in a store. You will also have a one of a kind piece that visitors will admire because you can add a bit of yourself to the wall art you create.
