6 Simple & Affordable DIY Wall Decor Ideas
Meet my friend Rita Joy from Harbour Breeze Home. Today she will be sharing with us some very affordable DIY Wall Decor Ideas we can all benefit from.
It’s an absolute joy and honor to be guest posting here on my friend Shirley’s blog today. I’m Rita Joy and I’m a home decor and lifestyle blogger at Harbour Breeze Home.
One of my very favorite things to do and share on my blog are thrifty DIY home decor projects.
After living in numerous “fixer upper” homes and experimenting with lots of ideas on a tight budget, I’ve learned that adding personality to our homes through decor doesn’t have to cost a lot.
Today, I want to show you six very affordable DIY Wall Decor Ideas that won’t break the bank and are simple to do, too.
Hang Some Simple DIY Wall Shelves
One thing I’ve learned since downsizing and moving into a smaller home is that shelves are one of my best friends.
They serve 3 purposes. They add interest to a boring wall, provide a place for pretty decor, AND are helpful for storage.
Other Frugal DIY Home Decor Ideas:
Use our easy trick when decorating for the holidays for an Easy Way To Hang Outside Window Wreaths.
It isn’t really that quick but it sure is easy to make Painted Pine Cones for decor like I did these in Spring colors. Then I displayed them in a Two Tier Tray as a tabletop centerpiece.
We solved a side table problem in our living room by Turning A Stool Into A Side Table. Our sofa arms were up really high and a normal side table would’t work for us.
Storage space in my craft room became an issue so I made this DIY Framed Pegboard for wall storage and love how it turned out. That was several years ago and it is still helping me out now.
Create Gallery Wall Decor Using Free Printables
Free printable art prints are one of my favorite budget friendly decor tricks. Use your home printer to create frugal but expensive looking art for your wall decor.
For a cohesive end result that doesn’t look messy, use frames that are all in the same color tone. It will make the overall look seem cohesive even in the frames are different sizes.
If you’d like to get started using free printables, here is a resource with over 100 botanical printables in sets – perfect for a gallery wall!

DIY A Picture Frame
Have some rolled up art prints or posters in a closet you’ve never gotten around to hanging up? Craft a super simple DIY picture frame with 1 x 2 boards and get them on a wall quick.
Hang An Engineer Print
See that big family picture up there? It’s actually an engineer print that was printed at a Staples store. An engineer print is a large scale print printed on thin paper (like copy paper) and is super affordable. This one cost less than $3!
I also made a pretty free watercolor floral printable that works well as an engineer print, too.
Frame A Book Page for Wall Decor
And, for the easiest DIY wall art of all? Look no further than a favorite picture in a book or magazine. Mount it with a piece of fabric behind and voila!- Instant “art”.
