Hey everyone, and happy May. It’s Anne here, from Circus Berry, sharing a great DIY home decor idea with you. This geometric wall art is a little bit inspired by the Mid-Century Modern, a little bit by a pure need to use up some scraps of paper. (God forbid I actually just toss them…gasp!).
I have been a fan of the geometric fad for a little while now, using simple shapes to add flair to some home decor, create stationary, and even build an original party around. Also, I love the various types of specimen art out there and have been wanting to give it a go. So, put all of those together and you get a fairly simple, fairly inexpensive DIY project for adding some trendiness to your home decor.
- 12″x 12″ piece of scrapbook paper
- strips of scrap card stock, about 1″ thick, in two colors
- shadowbox frame (use those coupons!)
- dimensional stickers
- maybe some glitter and glitter glue
Cut your strips of paper into triangles. I did mine free-hand because I was looking for the more “natural” look of it.
If you choose to add some glam to your specimen art, glitter a strip or two of your paper. Cut those into triangles too.
Start laying out your design on a piece of solid colored scrapbook paper. I liked putting the adhesive on each triangle ahead of time and as I laid out the pattern. Once you have an idea of your placement, start flipping those babies over, removing the adhesive, and sticking them in place. Once again, I liked the handmade, “natural” look of it being done without rulers, lines, or markers. If you struggle with the free-hand style of if, break out a ruler to guide your placement.
Continue laying down your triangles until your paper is covered how you want it. Scatter a couple of glittered triangles in there for good measure. Frame it up!
This was a fun use of some of my scraps I had laying around…and it is super-stylish too, don’t you think?
Hope you enjoyed this fun and easy DIY to dress up your wall or shelf. See you next month!
