DIY Wall Art

Recently I've seen some pretty cool DIY wall art projects -- notably from Lis Loves and Kelly's Korner. So I thought I'd share one of my own DIY wall art projects from our guest bathroom.

Our guest bathroom is "under the sea" themed (I'm sure you already know, I love the ocean!) -- it's all sea-glass blues and chocolate brown with chic starfish and sand dollars:


To get the starfish on the wall I first hammerd a nail into the wall to make a hole. Then I pulled the nail out and hot glued it to the back on an 8" starfish like this:


Then I let it dry and gently pushed the nail on the back on the starfish into the pre-hammered hole:



I did that a few times and "tah-dah", a wall of starfish!


It was inexpensive, simple, and easily changable!

What fun DIY wall art have you done?

Post about it on your blog and leave a link in the "comments" of this post!

That's so cool. Did you preserve the star fish in anyway? I'd be worried about moisture getting in and slowly destroying them.

That is sooo cool. Our master bedroom and bathroom is also an under the sea theme. I've been looking for something to do on a small wall next to the bathroom door - this will fit perfectly!
