This Is the Easiest *and* Cheapest Way to Make Wall Art

You’ve seen enough of our paper flowers, photo backdrops, and Eames chair makeovers to know we’re a bit obsessed with tissue paper. The stuff meets all of our needs — it’s versatile, easy to use, colorful and so, so affordable. So next up, we’re using the magical medium to deck our walls. Keep reading to see how we made this gallery wall with DIY wall art for under $10!

Materials

— tissue paper (multiple colors)

– canvas board

– Mod Podge

– paint brush

– black pen

Instructions

1. Pour 1 teaspoon of Mod Podge into a small bowl, then add about 1/3 teaspoon of water and stir.

2. Rip your tissue paper into many small pieces.

3. Place a piece of tissue paper on the canvas board and paint over it with the Mod Podge and water solution. Repeat with more pieces of tissue paper, overlapping different colors as you go.

4. Once you’ve added all of the tissue paper pieces, paint over the full canvas board with the Mod Podge solution, then let dry.

5. When the canvas board is dry, tear off the excess tissue paper.

6. Outline every piece of tissue paper with a black pen. You’re done!

Pro Tip: Switch up the color combos and sizes of your tissue paper if you want a cohesive gallery wall. But stick to the same color scheme!

Pour one teaspoon of Mod Podge into a small bowl, then add about 1/3 teaspoon of water and stir.

Rip up your tissue paper into pieces of varying sizes and shapes. The less clean the edges are, the better.

Lay a piece of tissue paper on the canvas board and paint over it with the Mod Podge and water solution. Repeat with more pieces of tissue paper, overlapping different colors as you go. Once you’ve added all of the tissue paper pieces, paint over the full canvas board with the Mod Podge solution, then let dry.

Pretty, right?

When the canvas board is dry, tear off the excess tissue paper around the edges.

Outline every piece of tissue with a black pen.

Ta-da! Now repeat with as many canvas boards as you like.
