Today I’m sharing a simple art project that really packs a punch. Are you looking for large scale wall decor DIY that won’t break the bank? This DIY aspen tree wall hanging took about an hour to make, cost less than $10, and is hung on the wall with masking tape, so it’s a damage free way to decorate any space. And I bet you’ll never guess what it’s made of.
- Foamies Extra Large White Foam Roll
- Craft Paint (Black or Dark Grey)
- Paint Brush
- Masking Tape
Begin by unrolling the foam sheet and taping it to a hard surface to keep it flat. Using a yardstick, draw a 3 inch border around the outside edges. Then draw your aspen trees. I looked up a picture online to use as a reference. I found that I had a hard time distinguishing between the trees and the background, so I colored my trees in a little bit to ensure I didn’t make any mistakes when cutting.
Cut out the negative space with a pair of scissors. Keep the outside border intact.
I love how this wall decor DIY art project turned out. The trees don’t quite sit flat against the wall, so it gives the whole project just the right amount of dimension. Plus that’s a BIG piece of art for less than $10. The finished size is 3 feet by 5 feet! I don’t think people would ever guess what it’s made of just by looking at it. I wish I’d had something so cool when I was living in my college apartment!
