How are you guys doing? I know, I know…I haven’t posted in two weeks. I’m a mess. An embarrassment to bloggers around the world. But honestly, I actually have a valid(ish) excuse this time! See, on top of schoolwork, piano practice and not going to the gym, I’ve been spending most of my free time working on putting together a portfolio to go to design college next year. I’ve also been spending a lot of time watching cookery videos on Youtube, but we can just ignore that part. Seriously though, on a side note, if any of you guys are putting together an art porfolio or have done so in the past please comment below and let me know if you have any tips/advice to share!
Anyways, now that I’ve wasted one paragraph defending my inability to stick to a blogging schedule, let’s get back to the DIY, shall we? A few weeks back I made this cool geometric wall art but never got around to editing the photos and writing down the tutorial. It’s just been hanging on my bedroom wall staring at me accusingly ever since, so today I finally got around to finishing the post and sharing it with you guys! It’s such an easy and inexpensive way to add a modern, trendy touch to your room. Plus, you guys can personalise it by experimenting with different coloured crepe paper and triangle sizes to suit your own style! I’m so happy with how this one turned out – I think the the colour scheme is perfect for autumn and the combination of PVA glue and crepe paper creates a really interesting texture and visual effect on top of the card.
Oh and by the way, if you guys enjoy my DIYs and want to see more of them make sure to check out my Instructables account where I have a bunch of other tutorials that haven’t been posted on my blog! ￼And now, without furder ado, let’s make some Triangle Wall Art!
What you need
A3 sheet of thick Card paper
Crepe paper in 3 different colours
Gold Paint *optional
- Cut out three large triangles from the crepe paper (one in each colour).
- Arrange paper triangles onto the card in an overlapping vertical pattern.
- Carefully glue down the triangles with the PVA glue.
- Leave to dry and you’re done! I also painted on a few gold designs to make the wall art a little more exciting.
