Ideas From Denver’s Carpet Company: Create Your Own Artwork

Since you’re considering saving a bundle by shopping at our carpet company to get top-name carpets for less money, we gathered some wall art decorating ideas that will cost you next to nothing to complete, but will certainly complete the look of your remodeled room.

Maps Aren’t a Memory Yet
We may have less use for printed maps these days with our trusty navigation systems, but there are a ton of ideas to repurpose them into decorations for your home. Here are two to get your creative juices flowing:

  • Wrap a map around a cardboard letter to pay homage to your monogram.
  • Celebrate your home state by framing a map of the state and marking the city you lived in with a heart or star.

 

Creativity on Canvas
Whether on an old painting found in a thrift store or a brand-new canvas from the craft store, the foundation of many do-it-yourself artwork projects is a canvas. Here are a few ways to economically turn whatever canvas you use into a favorite piece of art:

  • Gather your favorite colors of duct tape and create a starburst pattern by cutting duct tape into long triangular strips and placing them on a blank canvas.
  • Use a sponge or potato and acrylic paint to stamp words or graphics onto a canvas.
  • Cover canvases with a variety of fabric or use spray adhesive and strips of tulle to create a one-of-a-kind piece.
  • Decoupage with junk mail or strips of colorful paper.
  • Stamp out circles or other geometric shapes from scrapbooking paper, wrapping paper, old postcards or junk mail with a paper punch and glue to a canvas.
  • Use spray paint and vinyl letters to create word art from your favorite typography, lyrics or words of wisdom.

 

Frame Whatever Moves You
Virtually anything in a frame elevates its status to artwork.

  • A scarf that you no longer wear can be framed to add a touch of color to a room.
  • Leaves, flowers and other organic items are perfect additions to a frame.
  • Framing a collection of postcards, pages from old books or sheet music can add your personality to a room.

 

A Punch of Color from Paint Chips
There’s nothing better than using paint chips from the hardware store to add pops of color to a room without spending money.

  • Punch out circles from the chips and layer the circles to form a fish-scale mosaic.
  • Play around with chevron and other geometric shapes to make a bold statement in any room. You can frame your design or make your own wall sticker by first applying the chips to a paper and cutting them into polka-dots or other shapes.
