3 Easy DIY Spring Wall Art Projects

Hello friends! Well, Valentine’s Day is officially over, so I am totally in Springtime mode now! Bring on the flowers and the lush green and the rain and the warmer weather!!! Please!! So to give us a bit of hope that Spring is actually on the way, despite the fact that it is currently snowing outside, I thought I’d share a few really neat Spring wall art DIY projects I found on Pinterest. As always, click the pictures to be taken to their sources for full instructions. Enjoy!

Burlap Spring Wall Art

This burlap wall art is adorable! The warm tones of the burlap really give off that springtime vibe.  And the bird silhouette is so cute, but this really can be whatever you want, as it’s a simple stencil.

Some cute and simple art to bring that Spring warms into our homes!

 

Moss Wall Art

Nothing says Spring like a burst of fresh green! This adorable moss wall art project is made with real moss, although it’s dried so it doesn’t need to be watered. Authentic without the work!

This little burst of green moss would look adorable sitting on a mantle or table!

Easter Egg Button Art

Of course, with Spring comes Easter, and this little Easter Egg wall art is adorable. It’s a great way to use up some craft supplies too! Instead of buttons, it could be made with sequins or beads or whatever other supplies you’d like to use up.

These colours are lovely, but any pastel colours would work too. Use what you have 🙂

So that’s it for now! Are you excited for Spring to get here? I always get so excited when March starts nearing, even thought I know there’s still a good month or so of cold winter left. Thanks for stopping by, and till next time, keep creating!

Free Spring Floral Wall Art!

Hello friends! Happy Monday! Today I wanted to share a quick little digital project I whipped up using some free graphics! Here’s what it looks like:

Fun floral free art to fancy up your foyer! (sidenote: I like alliterations 🙂

It’s one of my favorite quotes, “She believed she could, so she did” written in a pretty script font surrounded by whimsical flowers. I thought I’d give this little print away today as a free printable you can download and print for yourself to have some fun on this cloudy, cold Monday (well, where I am anyway!). See the bottom of this post for the download link, and if you’re the crafty type yourself (which, if you’re reading this blog, you probable are!) I’ll share with you where I got the font and the floral graphics (psst.. they’re free this week!)

Both design elements are from Creative Market, and this week (week of Feb. 8, 2016), they are free:

The Font is called Awesome Darling

The floral graphics are called Floral Bunch

They are only free for this week, next week they will go back to their regular prices, so download them now if you want them!

Click the titles above to be taken to their pages to download them. I then opened one of the PNG file floral graphics from the pack in Photoshop, added a little peach background, and used the Awesome Darling font that I installed with a gold-copper overlay to make it a little more special.

Here’s my little printable you can download as a PDF and print it out for yourself, it’s an 8×8″ square image. Make sure you print it out on good cardstock or photo paper, and be sure your settings are to print at full size (100%). Then find a nice frame and voila! Instant art!

You will need a PDF reading file to open it, like Adobe Acrobat, which you can get for free here.

Please note that this printable is for personal use only, thank you!

Let me know in a comment if you’d like me to share more posts of this nature. I like making little free printables, and sharing the word about free graphics is always fun. If Creative Market has anything really cool for free that week, I can start making little free printables using the free items and sharing them with you guys on Mondays if it’s something we’re all interested in. I know this website is primarily focused on traditional media, but throwing in a bit of digital graphic design might be a nice addition.

So let me know what you think in a comment below, thanks for stopping by, and till next time, keep creating!
