Wall Décor

Tired of your bare walls? Then you gotta check this out.

Aaah … I love a hack that gets everyone in the family moving. Pinot, Dita and their two girls had a weekend of fun creating this wall art.

Pinot writes, “We decided to decorate the wall of our new apartement with a wall painting (mural). We choose mix media, poster paints and Ikea fabrics.”

What they did brilliantly was cut and paste Ikea fabric and then outlined them with poster paints. It’s not tough to do. The results are delightful and is a great way to brighten up a wall.

See more of Pinot and Dita’s fabric wall art. Don’t miss the video too.

    The only thing I wanted to add is that fabric can be stuck to wall quite securely with just liquid starch – so that leaves it completely removable. If you treat the edges of the fabric with something like fray check you can even throw all the pieces into a lingerie bag & launder them if needed. You could in that case cut the tree from fabric too – although not an outline likely…but you could. I would do a solid tree & you could layer it (so as not to need such a large piece) by cutting branches individually. That is a really great way to decorate in an apartment or if you do want to use it as a headboard & would ever like the option to move it. You could also have different leaves for different seasons. I have something similar for my sons (not trees though) and it stands up well to two busy toddler boys.
