14 DIY Wall Hangings To Dress Up Those Empty Walls

Even when you’re going for a minimalist decor, empty walls always make the room feel cold and less welcoming. Framed pictures and paintings are we used to put up in the walls. Not anymore.

Today we have plenty of creative and modern ways to choose from to decorate our walls, and wall hangings are one of them.

What looks good in the shop doesn’t always look good once you’ve hung it on your wall, and then it’s too late to change anything. The beauty of handmade wall art is that it adds meaning to the art piece, since it’s something you’ve made yourself, and you can change it whenever and however you feel like it.

To start those creative juices flowing, we give you a few wonderful wall hangings and how to make them. Let’s begin.
