5 Fall Wall Art Ideas You’ll Enjoy All Season Long : Take Photos to Frame
The walls in your home provide the perfect backdrop for seasonal decor. But if you’re like most folks, they are probably adorned with the same artwork, photos, etc. year-round. While there is nothing inherently wrong with that, displaying the same things on your walls, month after month can begin to feel stale and uninspiring. Sure, you can adorn coffee tables, countertops and other surfaces with seasonal decorations, but adding it to your walls truly takes things to the next level.
Timeless decor is great, but why not change things up a bit this fall? This time of year is perfect for displaying DIY wall art, and doing so is a great way to spruce up your home, instantly giving it a cozier feeling. Plus, it’s a great excuse to get crafty! Whether you make a beautiful landscape diamond painting, put together a welcoming wreath or even create a unique display of your favorite family recipes, the options for fall wall art are limitless. Keep reading to discover a few fall wall art ideas you’ll enjoy all season long!
Have you tried your hand at diamond painting yet? If you haven’t, you’re missing out! This popular craft has only been around for a few years, but it has allowed millions of people to create stunning artwork to display and give as gifts. There are countless designs from which to choose, including landscapes, Halloween scenes and other options that are perfect for autumn.
When you buy a diamond painting kit, it includes a pre-printed self-adhesive canvas, small resin gemstones called “diamond drills” in a variety of colors, a diamond placer tool, and everything else you need to complete your masterpiece.
When you unroll the canvas, you’ll see your chosen design and the symbols that let you know where to affix each color. It’s similar to paint-by-numbers and cross-stitch, so if you’ve ever tried either of these hobbies, learning to paint with diamonds will be a breeze. However, even if you don’t have any relevant crafting experience, you can still master this simple artform in minutes. It doesn’t require any special skills or talent. Diamond art is one of the few hobbies that is truly easy enough for everyone to enjoy.
Frame your completed diamond painting and display it on your wall for a piece of fall decor that’s certain to turn heads for all the right reasons. Diamond art shimmers and sparkles in the light and is a stunning addition to any wall — especially if the wall is well-lit by the sun or an artificial light source.
Wreaths are quintessential home decor for fall. And while hanging one on your front door may be the most traditional option, there is no reason you can’t use them as wall art inside your home as well. After all, why should you only get to enjoy the beauty of a well-made wreath when walking in your door?
Picking up a wreath (or two) at the store is the simplest option, but making one yourself is easier than you might think. All you need is a grapevine wreath base, a hot glue gun, glue sticks, and whatever fall elements you’d like to attach. Acorns, pine cones, dried flowers in fall colors, berries, and even miniature foam faux pumpkins are all great options. There are also loads of DIY wreath tutorials online for all skill levels and budgets.
Word art is a great way to liven up blank walls and let everyone who visits your home feel the loveliness of this special season. At this time of year, stores are full of signs and canvases with fall-related quotes and inspiring words. Keep it simple with single words like “Gather” and “Harvest,” or get fancy with quotes. Spend some time browsing and you’ll likely find a lovely piece to display above your couch, in your entryway or over a credenza or buffet.
Of course, this is also a great DIY project, and there are all sorts of ways to make your own word art. One of the easiest options is purchasing a blank canvas, painting it a festive fall color like orange or goldenrod and adding a word or quote. Depending on your skill set, you could paint the wording onto the canvas by hand or use a vinyl decal. Stenciling is an option, too. If you have access to a vinyl cutter, you could even make a quote decal using removable vinyl and sticking it directly to your wall.
Your favorite fall recipes don’t need to reside only in your cookbook or on a Pinterest board. Turn them into fun seasonal wall art for your kitchen! Pick up a letterboard and use it to show off your favorite recipe (pumpkin muffins, anyone?). Alternatively, write out the recipe using letter stickers on a blank canvas.
Hand-lettering is an option, too. If you’d like to try this method, pick up a chalkboard (or use chalk paint to make your own) and carefully write the recipe by hand. If your favorite recipe is one you learned from a loved one, ask them to write it on a chalkboard instead of doing it yourself. Seal it and you will have a special keepsake to treasure forever.
Colorful Yarn Hanging
Yarn wall hangings are super simple to make, and they’re perfect for adding warmth to any room. All you need to do is tie sections of yarn in your favorite fall colors to a branch, and you’ll have a one-of-a-kind piece of wall art. Check out the tutorial here.
Whether you prefer to buy or DIY, there are all sorts of ways to decorate your walls this fall. And if you go with any of the suggestions above, you’ll be sure to love your new art all season long!
