Easy DIY Wall Decor Idea #1: Poster Hangers
$2 DIY POSTER HANGER: UPDATE YOUR FAMILY PHOTOS AS OFTEN AS YOU WANT
Why does updating your family photo prints have to be such an investment!? Don’t get me wrong, I love photo canvases, wood photo prints and all of the other cool ways you can print your favorite family photos, but they are quite expensive! Also, what do you do with the old ones? I only have so much wall space! Which is why I came up with this poster hanger solution!
When photos are hanging in a main focal point of your home (aka above the couch), you are going to want to update those photos every once in a while, right? I wanted to hang large portraits from our wedding above our couch, but I’m going to want to update them since our family is growing.
Well, I think I’ve finally come up with an ACTUALLY GOOD solution that is affordable, interchangeable and stylish! I figured out how to make my own DIY poster hanger and it only cost me $2!!
Easy DIY Wall Decor Idea #2: Reversed Canvas
REVERSED CANVAS (WITH A SHIPLAP TWIST)
Before we upgraded to our king size mattress, we didn’t have a headboard in our bedroom. We knew we would upgrade eventually and didn’t want to spend money on a headboard we wouldn’t get much use out of. So, to disguise the fact that we didn’t have a proper adult bed, I wanted to hang something in that spot instead. That’s when I discovered this DIY.
Why would I pay a small fortune for a large custom wood sign when I can make my own reversed canvas. What is a reversed canvas? A reversed canvas is when a stretched canvas is transformed into a cool wooden framed sign with a rustic charm. This DIY version is a fun, easy and cheap way to personalize your space! No joke, I have one in just about every room of our home. I usually fill my frames with the canvas material or large photos, and I also have a faux shiplap version!
Easy DIY Wall Decor Idea #3: Gallery Wall

This beautiful gallery wall is coming to you from my friend Emily from the blog, Emily Rone Home. I am in love with this wall of hers (and all of her DIY projects)! A gallery wall is such a beautiful way to cover a large empty space in your home! In her tutorial, Emily mentions that, “Every time I walk past my gallery wall filled with our engagement, wedding, and travel photos it makes me smile and that’s what our homes should be about!” I couldn’t agree more. If the decor in your home doesn’t bring you joy, than it’s time to reevaluate your space! Check out her tutorial to see the easiest way to create your own gallery wall just like this one!

Easy DIY Wall Decor Idea #4: POPSICLE STICK DIY
$5 POPSICLE STICK WALL DECOR DIY
Do you have a large space needing filled in your home, but not into photos or text?! Why not glue some popsicle sticks together like you did in summer camp!? Yes, I am serious!
I’m going to be honest, this DIY happened by accident, but a happy accident! I was organizing my craft room when I realized that I have quite the popsicle stick collection. There were A TON! You would think I run a daycare or something. Since I am trying to declutter our house before the baby gets here, I made a mental note to come up with a project to use up some of my popsicle stick collection. That’s when I found myself scrolling through Google for some popsicle stick inspiration. I’m pretty impressed with what I came up with! Who knew kids’ craft supplies could be so chic?!? Talk about a cheap and easy wall decor solution!
Don’t forget about my hat wall (as seen in the photo above). It’s another cheap and easy way to fill some wall space.. it’s practical too! All you need are some command hooks and a few of your favorite hats!
