DIY Acrylic Wall Hanging

As spring approaches, I always feel the urge to not only clean and declutter my house, but to freshen it up with some bright new decorations. A lot of times that means I make something myself because I love to do it, and I can make something I wouldn’t find at any stores. And today, I’m going to share one of these projects with you – this cheery DIY home wall decor! With beautiful bright colors and shiny acrylic, this wall hanging is the perfect way to add new life to your home after emerging from the cold, dark winter. Here’s how I made it…

DIY Home Wall DecorSupplies needed to make your own DIY home wall decor:

  • David Tutera Acrylic Gem Shapes
  • Adhesive Vinyl
  • Vinyl Scraper/Credit Card/Ruler
  • X-Acto Knife
  • Cutting Mat
  • Twine
  • Dowel

DIY Home Wall DecorStep 1: Cut a piece of vinyl roughly to the size of one of the acrylic gem shapes. This is a perfect project for using up some of your vinyl scraps (if you have a stash like me)! Remove the vinyl from the backing and apply to the shape.

DIY Home Wall DecorStep 2: Use a scraper (a credit card or ruler would work, too) to smooth out air bubbles (lifting the vinyl, if needed).

DIY Home Wall DecorStep 3: Flip the shape so it lays on top of the vinyl. Use your knife to cut the vinyl around the edge of the shape.

DIY Home Wall DecorStep 4: Repeat this process with as many shapes and colors as you’d like. It’s a really therapeutic process (my favorite kind)!

DIY Home Wall DecorStep 5: Cut a string for each color of shapes. Tie one shape to the end of the string.

DIY Home Wall DecorStep 6: Layer another shape over the bottom shape, and tie it in place on the string, ensuring the string and knots are hidden on the vinyl side.

DIY Home Wall DecorStep 7: Repeat this process until you have created strands for each color.

DIY Home Wall DecorStep 8: Attach each strand to the dowel and hang on the wall.
