DIY Geometric Wall Art

By now, you all know that I'm a firm believer of design for all. Everyone, no matter your situation, should be able to afford a beautiful home that they love - and DIY'ing is one of the ways to achieve that from furniture to crafts to artwork!

Today I'm sharing my latest artwork project. If you follow The Girl Creative, you know that I shared this with her readers last month - and now I want to bring it on home to you.

How to:


The instructions for painting geometric wall art are super-duper simple. Once you’ve determined the design you want to paint, tape it off using blue painters tape. This comes off of the painting paper really nicely. I decided on a multi-triangle design using four colors from our master suite color palette.

Taping the Geometric Design

Using BASIC Acrylic Paint from Micheals , I started mixing a very small amount of each color that I wanted to use. Since I was only doing one triangle of each color, I didn’t need much paint.

Geometric Artwork Painting

Start with painting two triangles that aren’t touching. Paint, and allow for them to completely dry before taking up the blue painters tape and reapplying for the remaining two triangles. Note: Unless you want a thick white stripe between each triangle, be sure to reapply the painters tape between the painting of each color triangle.

Allow to dry and the piece is ready to be framed! Simple as that.

For only 30 minutes and the $9.99 cost of the frame, we have some beautiful new art for our home!
