10 Gorgeous DIY Wall Art Ideas

As we get closer to finishing our renovating I’ve been slowly thinking about art for our home.  I have some wonderful prints already purchased from Etsy and shops like Little Paper Planes ready to go, however would love to have a few bigger pieces to fill some bigger wall areas.  As real art can be expensive I’ve been looking online for DIY wall art ideas that I can do, yet still look really good.  Here are 10 that I’ve found that I think fit the bill.  Check’em out below!
