A very girly art wall

As you probably know by now, I love my closet, and I absolutely adore the art wall that I have created in it. Once you open the door to my closet, you face the art wall as well as the white mannequin, my favorite piece there. Not only is it pretty to look at, it is also functional; you can hang either clothes or accessories on it. But what I love about this specific mannequin is that it has a little shelf right in the middle, that you can decorate. I chose to display two books from Megan Hess. If you don’t know who Megan Hess is, you are missing out, because her books have the most amazing illustrations ever! Ever since I recently came across one of her books, my wish has been to collect all of them.

My whole art wall is a DIY project that you can make anywhere in the house. First, figure out what theme you like and what you would like to display. What would you like to look at every time you are in that place? It should be something lasting and pleasing to the eye, so you don’t get tired too quickly of looking at it. Think of something that gives you inspiration. Then get to work creating!

At the top of the wall on both sides I hung two big white frames from IKEA (IKEA has a great range of plain, inexpensive, but pretty picture frames such as these). All I did here is I bought some cute paper from Michaels and Hobby Lobby, and with the paper I framed the quote “Paris is always a good idea” and a picture of Carrie Bradshaw. This was only appropriate because first, I love Paris (as you will be able to see in my future posts) and Carrie Bradshaw is my absolute favorite fashion icon.

As far as the other four pictures, I bought thick canvases and used either acrylic paint or Mod Podge and glitter to cover them. The last step was to draw a perfume bottle, Chanel sign, and lips; and to glue the bow.

For the middle of my art wall, I made a unicorn bust out of felt, yarn, and flowers, all from Hobby Lobby and Michaels. For the best unicorn bust tutorial that I used, look here.

I love polka dots and confetti, so why not put some on the wall? All I did to make that is I chose some pastel and glitter paper (did I mention I love glitter?!) from Michaels and Hobby Lobby and cut out different sizes of circles. Then, all you have to do is glue them on the wall (I just used regular tape so as not to ruin the wall).

And finally, you have to have pretty banners for your space! This was another easy DIY that you can find all over the internet. I love my banner since it showcases all the pastel prettiness!
