DIY large scale wall art.

August 31, 2017


I usually have art commitment phobia, and it takes me forever to get together a picture ledge or gallery wall. I like art in our home to have meaning so I overthink everything, and end up not being able to execute any decisions. This time around I went for a different approach by making my own large scale art. It saves a pretty penny, and also gives your art a little more significance in the process.

  1. Choose an image you have taken from travels, your city, or in my case, just from a stroll around my neighborhood! You don’t have to use a fancy camera. I think the biggest surprise for me was that this printed pretty clear even though the image was from my iphone.
  2. Open your image in a photo editing program (I used photoshop) to convert to black and white or edit contrast, brightness, or color. I set up the image horizontally and split them into two even images. Save as separate files.
  3. Print your images on wrap around canvas through a discount printing site like Easy Canvas Prints (they run up to 85% off deals). The total cost for both of your art work will still be less than buying a custom one large piece from most art print sites. These black and white images were printed in the wrap around canvas style in size 30” x 40.”

Hope this is helpful! I can’t share too much of our living room yet, but I will be posting the full tour very soon! We will be sharing how we made these picture ledge/ book shelves as well.
