copper--wall-art-diy

I feel like I’ve already done a bunch of holiday decor projects this year, but I had a wall that needed a little something and was in the mood for one more project. Unfortunately, my wallet was not. So I gathered up some supplies that I already had in the house and created this removable wall art custom decals DIY. *If you don’t have these items on-hand already, this project will still only set you back about $15.

The full tutorial is right here on Curbly.

But before you click over,  I thought it was worth mentioning that I’ve been dying to use that copper contact paper for almost a year now. Yep, I’ve had it that long – was just waiting for the perfect project… Thought you would appreciate my craziness… Do you ever do that? Hold on to something for eternity until the ‘perfect’ project makes it’s way into your head?

We recently moved into a new place and we’re in the process of picking out paint colors and getting the walls painted. Once the paint is done, and I mean the second that it’s done, artwork is going up. The walls feel so bare without it – not quite like home. Know what I mean?

And with all the art we’ve collected over the years, there is plenty of artwork to be hung. But we also have a lot more space in this new house, so I need to buy some new pieces too.

That said, I have a sneaking suspicion that a few of these linocut prints from Printwork will be making their way onto my walls soon – especially that large scallop print on the right (image above). It’s one of my favorites. I can’t stop staring at all the textures and patterns that Toni, the artist, has created. And they look so good on the wall together, even without frames. Don’t you think?

So, here’s the deal…I hung a handful of pieces temporarily to figure out placement and decide which ones I just can’t live without. Would you mind helping me decide on some keepers from this group?

Love all the line work in this one. This Tribal linocut would be good for the bedroom or hallway.

I’m really diggin’ the black and grey pieces, with a couple of pops of color. That light blue is a good accent color. Not too bright. Not too neutral.

This Eat Delicious Food linocut print would be great in the kitchen.

And here’s a closeup of my fave piece. I love the irregularities in block prints. It makes me want to reach out and touch it. You know what I mean?
