Paint Projects

    Just look at what you can do with paint! From fabric to furniture, wall art to wall treatments, any piece of home decor can get a big style boost with a bit of paint and creativity. Team DIY producer Meredith Ladik created these cheerful nature-inspired artworks to accent the wood-grain theme. Download and print her squirrel art and the acorn art. Print them in color, and they are ready to frame and hang!

DIY Stationery step 1

    Find a stencil you love at a crafts store or scrapbooking shop. Place your blank card under the stencil. Tape into place if necessary. Use a foam stencil brush (also available at crafts stores) to blot paint onto the stencil. When the area is covered, remove the stencil and allow the painted design to dry. Repeat until you have a complete pack of cards.

Kraft Paper Wall Art step 1

    Start by laying your piece of kraft paper flat on a level surface. Tape the edges to prevent curling, if necessary. Load a 1- to 1-1/2-inch brush with paint and draw the brush downward. Continue making abstract stripes with one color. Embrace rough edges, paint splatters, and other irregularities. Allow the first color to dry before adding stripes in other colors.
