There’s no doubt that artwork completes any room but it doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive to be beautiful. Some of the best wall art is made with love from the objects in our lives that have special meaning. These simple DIY projects are perfect for rainy weekends and most supplies can already be found in your home. I’ve put together some of my favourites below.
Don’t throw out those wine corks from your dinner party or weekend BBQ. Glue them together to form a cheerful message for your bar area or kitchen!

Old buttons are great for DIY! This letter on a canvas wrapped in fabric would be perfect for the nursery!
Cardboard letters can be found in most craft stores or if you’re handy you can cut them out yourself from old cardboard boxes and paint to match any decor. Glue together for an instant funky art piece great for a modern space.
