Have some blank wall space screaming out to be filled — and a budget with no room for art gallery treasures? Don’t despair. And for goodness’ sake don’t get a Van Gogh print at TJ Maxx, either (not that there’s anything wrong with that; we love TJ Maxx).
Instead, wake up your inner artist with these diy painting ideas. In no time, with very little outlay or effort, you can create one-of-a-kind pieces you’ll be proud to display.
This roundup includes some fun tools and techniques that are certain to spark more ideas. Corn cobs, wood and string, teddy bears. How anyone thought of using a teddy bear to paint with is beyond me.
Check these out. And if you make any diy art, feel free to share it on our Facebook page. We’d love to see it!

Use a cut lemon as a stamp for a summery design
Paint canvas a bright color. Let dry. Place leaf or other foliage on top. Spray with metallic paint. Peel off leaf. Make a group as seen here using different base colors.
Press a Teddy Bear
This rolled-out teddy idea is from Melbourne, Australia, artist Geoffrey Ricardo.
Toilet Paper Roll
Paint over stuck on letters for a 3-D effect.
Easy Ebru (Paper Marbling)
This would look beautiful framed, but since it’s paper you can also use it for gift wrapping. Get the instructions here.
