Most of us enjoy decorating our homes with things that reflect our personal style and inspire us. Like most people, I do not have a lot of extra money for expensive art, so I have to get creative. I had luckily had a lot of success finding cute and decorative art on the Internet.
- Print botanical prints off of Pinterest or Graphics Fairy.com
This botanical prints gallery is in our dining room. I printed every single one of these pictures off of Pinterest for free. I then framed them in Dollar Tree frames, and spent a total of $9. I have gotten so many compliments on this wall, and it looks so good in our dining room.
The Graphics Fairy offers a collection of vintage art and illustrations. Most of them are public domain and can be used however you’d like. Simply download and print your images. There is also a project gallery so you can see how others have used the graphics to create things. I’ve gotten a lot of great ideas for my own use.
2. Create your own art using Adobe Illustrator or Canva.
There have been many times when I have seen something I liked in a store or on Etsy, but decided to try to create it myself instead of shelling out a lot of money for it. The printable above is something I created for my youngest daughter’s room after realizing her wall needed a little more color. I used Canva to create it and it was super simple to do.
3. Allposters.com or art.com
There are two great websites I love to visit for cheap prints and posters to frame. My oldest daughter’s room once featured this tulip print that I bought for next to nothing on AllPosters.com. It cost me less than $20 and the most expensive part of it was the frame ($25). It looked great in her room and the colors worked perfectly.
4. Get creative!
Who says art has to be a print, painting, or picture? These papier mache letters were purchased very cheaply from Hobby Lobby.com with a coupon, and then I painted them myself. I have also seen people hang and frame old keys from Ebay, a boat motor propeller from Amazon, and even deer antler sheds from Etsy.
I also once purchased Christmas gift bags, cut them apart and framed them.
5. Google Images Search
Most of the pictures in this gallery wall were found when I did a Google Image search for kids’ art. I saved it, printed it and popped it in a frame. I love how much it adds to her room.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this post. What are some of your favorite places to buy your budget-friendly wall decor?
