28 incredibly creative DIY art ideas for small budgets. So many great ideas!

Got bare or boring walls and a tiny budget for decorating them? Here’s some great news for you. I’ve rounded up some of the most creative, affordable DIY art and am sharing these wonderful ideas with you today.

Last week I shared my DIY version of a grouping of artwork from Pottery Barn (go here to get the how-to) and it got me thinking about all the different ways to create your own artwork on a budget. I asked my friends if they had ideas they wanted to share and I was blown away with all the creativity that they shared.
