3 DIY Easy Boho Wall Art Projects

how to make boho wall art

Over the past few months I have been struggling with some medical issues with my jaw and that’s forced me to take some time away. But, here’s the thing… I am really bad at taking time away. So, instead I decided to take it easy and make some DIY boho wall art for my apartment. This project was awesome because I was able to make THREE pieces in one weekend and I did it all for under $20! Here’s how!

I love that each one of these boho wall art pieces has it’s own personality, so to give them each the time and love they deserve, I’m breaking each one down by project! Even cooler, I was able to make most of these projects happen using leftover materials I had laying around my workshop!

DIY Round Boho Wood & Yarn

This project was inspired by a $300 art piece I saw online! I was able to make mine for around $7 (with craft store coupons)! Here’s how!

Tools
Jig Saw
Sander
Iron (Optional)
Router & Straight Bit (Optional)
Staining Tools
Scissors
Hammer
Pencil

Materials
¾” Plywood
DAP Rapid Fuse Spray Adhesive
Yarn
Golden Oak Wood Stain
Iron-On Edge Banding

The Steps:

1. First, I drew a half circle on plywood and cut it out using my jig saw.

2. Next, I sanded the entire piece flat & added iron-on edge banding to the exposed plywood edges.

3. Next, I stained my wood art.

4. This was an optional step, but I used my router and a straight bit to cut a groove in the back of my plywood for the string to live.

5. Next, I sprayed DAP Rapid Fuse Spray Adhesive in the groove, allowed it to get tacky, and added my string. I didn’t worry too much about making the string all the same length because I will be shaping it later.

6. After letting the artwork dry, I trimmed the yarn to make the entire piece look like a giant circle.

7. I then added a hook to the back of the wood art and displayed it in my apartment!

Not bad for under $10 in materials!

2. I then cut a scrap 5/8″ dowel into pieces that fit perfectly in between the ends of the hoop.

3. I then sanded the ends of the hoop really well along with the ends of the dowels before adding a decent amount of DAP Tank Bond Clear Epoxy.

I clamped everything together for a few hours (this is a great time to work on the other art projects).

4. Once the epoxy was cured, I began to add my string (you can see this in action in the YouTube video). I didn’t worry about these string being the same length – I trimmed them down after adding them all.

This piece was inspired by a collection I recently saw at World Market! I loved it so much, but wanted to make my own and layer it with my other art pieces!

Tools
Miter Saw
Drill & Drill Bit
Sander
Staining Tools

Materials
¼” Plywood
12″ Embroidery Hoop
DAP Plastic Wood-X Wood Filler
Jewelry Clasps
American Walnut Stain

The Steps:

1. First I measured and cut a triangle on my miter saw at 30 degree angles to fit inside my embroidery hoop.

2. Next, I sealed the edges of the plywood with DAP Plastic Wood-X Wood Filler and sanded everything down once dry.

3. Once dry, I drilled small holes in each corner for my clasps.

4. I then stained my triangle.

5. I then attached the triangle to the hoop using the clasps.

I honestly didn’t end up loving this piece as a standalone art piece, so I layered it with some of the other pieces of art!
