The Easiest & Cheapest DIY Art Project (Using Your Phone)

When it comes to making your own art, there is no shortage of project ideas. If you have artistic tendencies, you can likely take any idea or inspiration (online or IRL) and turn it into something worthy of that much-coveted spot on your gallery wall. However, if you have less-than-artistic tendencies, those ideas may be more likely to become Pinterest Fails than framed masterpieces. And that’s okay. My advice when it comes to DIY art is this: know your limits.

Your walls deserve more, and quite frankly, no place really is complete without artwork. It’s what gives your space soul. The problem is “good” art can be elusive, sometimes expensive and often best, and most meaningful, when collected over time. But that doesn’t mean you should wait a lifetime for a gallery wall—or go at it alone, either.

DIY Ideas for Framing Big Art on a Small Budget

This past fall, I went on a quest for a simple frame for a long 14-by-50-inch map. After quickly realizing there was no way a store-bought frame would fit these odd dimensions, I emailed a local NYC framing company for a quote. A couple days later, there it was in my inbox: a whopping $782.09 cost estimate. As much as I value supporting local businesses, there was no way I could do it. So then how do you make a big statement without completely destroying your budget? Follow the lead of the thrifty crafters that follow, and build your own.
