53. Color Block Canvas: Think Popsicle sticks are just for the kids? Think again with this pretty color block canvas. (via Design for Mankind)

What if you have a gigantic wall? Large canvas wall art can be very expensive or hard to get into your apartment. Instead, choose smaller pieces that can be laid like a collage or gallery wall like the contemporary living room above.

What if you’re hanging living room wall art over furniture like a sofa or sofa table? Hang the artwork so the bottom edge is 6-8 inches from where the table or sofa back ends.

88. Living Wall Art: One of our favorite upgrades on a basic DIY is adding a few air plants to our string art plaques. Just be sure you leave enough space to nestle in the plants. (via Brit + Co.)

49. Fish Scale Wall Art: Just by layering these paper cutouts you can create a completely different texture. And you can never go wrong spray painting a piece gold. (via Let’s Go Sunning)

First of all, take a look at the wall you’re going to fill to decide what size art you should pick. There are many ways to determine this and you’ll see different ideas throughout this post.

Last thing, choose art that is vibrant or graphic or powerful. Otherwise, what’s the point?

72. Book Page Wall: Need to fill a lot of space quickly? Try papering a wall in pages from old books. You’ll want to hit up the thrift store or library sale to find ones to use. (via Poppytalk)

Is your space all set up with the perfect furniture, but still feels kind of vanilla? Do you live in a modern tract home with big, impossible walls to fill? Are you having trouble deciding what size or type of wall decor to choose or how to hang pictures? These wall decor ideas and tips are going to help you conquer those problems.

100. Yarn Banner: And finally, we have another great stash-buster. This easy-to-make yarn banner is a bold statement in your home. The key is to trim the shape after all the pieces are glued down. (via Creativebug)

56. Washi Tape Frames: The frame is half the battle when hanging wall art. So why not turn the frame into a work of art itself using washi tape. (via Brit. + Co.)

A good rule of thumb is to choose wall art that takes up the width of the wall, minus 6-12 inches on each side, so it looks like it’s centered, like the image above. For example, you have a 36 inch wall. Leave about 6 inches on each side of the piece of art, which means you should choose something around 24 inches wide.

2. 3D Colorblock Wall Art: This 3D circle installation proves that when it comes to color block, it’s not always hip to be square. (via Curbly)

78. Textured Wall Art: A new take on string art, this colorful canvas has a great texture to it. We might consider using a matte paint for a more sophisticated feel. (via Blu Kat Kraft)

50. DIY Wire Wall Art: Head to the hardware store for the supplies for this creative sign. There are tons of colors and materials to choose from. What will you spell out? (via Brit + Co.)

89. Light Up Sign: Using frosted spray paint on a piece of glass makes this light up art give off a soft glow. (via Vintage Revivals)

Next, decide how high to hang your wall art. Wall art height is the concept that goes wrong the most. The general rule of thumb is to hang wall art at your sight line, so you don’t have to look up too high or too low at it. That means the center of your wall art area is about 60 inches from the ground.

92. Spoon Art: No, we’re not suggesting you hang spoons on your wall. Instead, try this colorful work of art that uses a large metal serving spoon as the paintbrush. (via Mr. Kate)

Hang wall art in a diptych or triptych pattern, which is basically two, three or more panels of art that flow. Be sure to leave at least 2 inches between the pieces. You can do bigger spacing if you have a huge wall, just keep it consistent.

29. Paint Chip Heart Art: What’s the easiest way to get all the colors you need for a beautiful ombre piece? Start with paint chips, of course! You’ll save tons of time trying to mix the perfect shades. (via I Heart Organizing)

39. Painted Wood Wall Art: Don’t be fooled, this reclaimed wood project is time- and labor-intensive, but the results are worth the effort, without a doubt. (via Salvage Love)

Once you have an idea of a general spot, frame out the area with painter’s tape to visualize the spot. Stand back a few feet and see if you like where it sits on the wall. Get artsy with this; maybe you want to hang your wall art slightly off center because there’s a plant in the corner or a chair that will block some of it. Create a vignette, or setting, like the image above, where the art is part of the grouping and slightly off center.

7. Watercolor Chevron Wall Art: While not made with watercolor paints, this canvas project definitely has a watercolor effect. The gold background is a nice touch as well. (via The Embellished Nest)

You’re officially ready to choose and hang wall art like a pro. Turn those boring white or beige walls into a thing of beauty by choosing large, colorful or textural pieces that add life to your space.

36. DIY Vintage Marquee: Making this marquee is definitely easier than it looks. The trick is to start with pre-made cardboard letters. (via Brit + Co.)

There are many ways you can hang wall art and, depending on the weight of the art, you may be able to avoid putting holes in the walls by using adhesive removable mounting tabs.

67. Tissue Paper Pom Poms: These paper poms might be meant for a party, but we’d leave them up rear round. (via The Sweetest Occasion)
