Art should be accessible to everyone. However, art can be really costly, especially if you’re shopping for prints or original pieces for your apartment’s decor. There are several ways to get around this obstacle, but there’s one we like most (because it’s the most fun)—create your own apartment art. Here are a few different ways you can create your own apartment art on a budget. Try out one of these DIY art projects this weekend.
Create Your Own Canvas
You don’t have to spend a fortune on art prints. If you want to decorate your apartment with large photos or images, you can submit the artwork of your choosing to a website and they’ll create custom prints for you. They’ll then ship them to your door. Websites like Shutterfly or CanvasOnDemand allow you to order personalized canvas prints with your choice of size, style, and more.
Make Your Own Abstract Act
Channel your inner Rothko or Pollock and create your own abstract art for a fraction of the cost to buy a similar-styled print. Here’s a tutorial on how to make your own cool black and white abstract piece for your apartment.
Frame a Wallpaper or Fabric Sample
