Who knew you could press flowers in the microwave? This tutorial will take you step-by-step through the process, and you’ll wind up with this stunning botanical art that will last on your wall forever.
Add dimension and interest to floating shelves by first painting a circle on the wall. Worried you won’t be able to draw an even circle? The tutorial will show you a clever hack for getting it right.
You don’t have to spend a ton of money to get beautiful art for your walls. This DIY project uses gold leaf paint, and you can even paint over an existing canvas.

This fringe wall hanging will add texture and color to your walls. It’s made using cotton brush fringe and, while it looks elaborate, it only takes a few hours to make.
Paper & Felt Wreath
A green wreath that will last all year? Yes, please. This gorgeous paper and felt eucalyptus wreath looks realistic and offers a pop of texture and color on a blank wall.
