Gallery walls are amazing but *kinda* time consuming. If you want to make some serious impact with color and design, then maybe it’s time to steer away from that gallery wall template and opt for one giant piece of art. Big wall art can make a small space seem grander and help your large space feel more cozy. These 22 DIY art projects are easy enough for the non-artist to pull off, and we can guarantee that the end result will be pretty darn impressive.

1. Pom Pom Art: Depending on the length of the show you’re binge-watching on Netflix, you could make this textured wall piece enormous. Or, if you’re not feeling crafty, pick up some pre-made pom poms and simply glue, hang and admire. (via Sugar and Cloth)

2. Hand Lettered: If you haven’t jumped on the hand-lettering trend yet, it’s time to do it in a really big way. But don’t worry; the hardest part of this DIY will be trying to decide what quote you want to use. (via Paper and Stitch)

3. Gold Moon Wall: Talk about wow factor! You might never want to leave your office with this golden beauty shining down on you. (via A Beautiful Mess)

4. Macrame Wall Hanging: This project is so simple that you can probably tie your knots while watching your fave TV season finale. If you want something a bit bigger, just up the size of the dowel and grab more fabric. (via Brit + Co)

5. Washi Wall: Depending on how ambitious you’re feeling, you could really create a whole accent wall with our favorite craft supply. Plus it peels right off, making it a great option for renters. (via Brit + Co)

6. String Art: We adore string art over here at Brit + Co (we even have a piece in our office). So if you’re looking for a fun way to bring color and texture to your wall, a giant string-art word is definitely the way to go. (via We are Scout)

7. Add Color: Even if you don’t have an artistic bone in your body, the mere size of a colorful canvas can add interest in a small space like this entryway. And if you want to paint some clouds on it, we say go for it. (via Apartment Therapy)

8. Paint by Numbers: Hack a grown-up version of a paint-by-numbers art project by painting over a thrift store find. Keep the color palette simple and adjust the shades to blend in perfectly with your home decor. (via Honestly WTF)

9. Photo Enlargement: You don’t need to be an artist to blow up some pictures really big. Plus, it’s a cheap enough option that you can switch it up every season if you want. (via Martha Stewart)

10. Geometric Shapes: Buy a huge white canvas, lay down some tape and go to town with a couple of your favorite colors. You don’t even have to worry about staying in the lines, because the tape will make sure you get those clean shapes. (via Felted Fox)

11. Easy Abstract: This abstract art DIY comes with step-by-step instructions so you definitely can’t go wrong. You’ll probably have so much fun that you’ll be adding abstract art to every room in the house. (via A Beautiful Mess)

12. Sharpie Art: Don’t even want to mess with paint? Grab a couple Sharpies and settle down with a good Netflix show to create this gallery-like art feature of multiple drawings. (via Ohoh Blog)

13. String Typography: Say it loud and proud with nails, colorful string and your favorite quote. If nailing into the walls is a no-go, just use a big piece of wood instead. (via Jen Loves Kev)

14. Oversized Hanging Print: One of the drawbacks of big art can be the cost of a frame. DIY this $10 option and hang a favorite photo or a flag. (via You Paid More Than Me)

15. 3D Paper Art: Definitely on the quirkier side of things, these bold botanical cutouts would look great with any bright accent color. (via Ohoh Blog)

16. Text Painting: Channel your inner street artist and scrawl a favorite song or quote across a big white canvas. The drippier the better. (via Alisa Burke)

17. DIY Giant Frame: If the idea of really big art is deterring you because you don’t want to deal with the ridiculous prices that come along with framing, then this DIY frame (that costs just under $20!) is for you. Paint it any color you want and no one will guess it wasn’t professionally framed. (via Desert Domicile)

18. Giant Tiled Photo Art: Does “tiled” count as a big gallery piece? Maybe, but this is just the same photo just cut into four different pieces. (via A Beautiful Mess)

19. Marble Paper: Almost too easy to be called a DIY, this project only requires some big frames from IKEA and some pretty sheets of paper. (via Setting for Four)

20. Photo Mural: If you really want to go big, pick a favorite photo from your travels or summer vacation and blow it up to a ginormous size. Why do wallpaper when you can have a completely personalized accent wall? (via HGTV)

21. Birch Tree Painting: Everyone will be super impressed with your mad painting skills, and you’ll be super impressed at how easy this step-by-step painting is. The copper-leaf personalization is a cute idea if you’re looking for a wedding gift idea. (via Persia Lou)
