DIY Accent Color Wall Art

DIY accent color wall art

I’ve never been in a house that didn’t have at least one decorative element on the wall. I bet you can’t think of one either. So, it’s probably safe to say that people like wall art. However, they might not want to pay for some of the more expensive options.

I like to make art and I enjoy teaching other people to do the same, so it makes sense to start with decorative, simple art.

This example is great for the modern home that needs a small pop of color.

Want to try it? It’s easy…

Things You Will Need

Ruler
Canvas
Newspaper
Stencil tape
Acrylic paint

Paint brushes

Oil-based Sharpie markers a highly recommended but optional.

Step 1

Lay out your stencil tape in the design you want.

Tip: To get the sharp points, stretch your tape out longer than it needs to be. Then lay the ruler across where it needs to be cut and use your X-acto knife to cut it.

Step 2

Paint everything black except one strip in the center. Paint the lone strip pink.

Step 3

Peel off the tape when your paint is dry.

You might have a few paint lines that aren’t as even as you would’ve like them to be.

That’s where the oil-based Sharpie markers come in. You’ll want a black and a while one.

Use them to even out the lines. Obviously, use the black on the black lines and the white to cover up any paint that spills over.

When you’re finished you’ll have something like the above.

I like the abstraction. The black. And, of course, the accent color.

The bigger the canvas, the bigger the impact.

Let me know what you think!

Happy painting 🙂
