While we think of wood as a material for sideboards, beds, chairs, counters, firewood and much more but most times less is thought about in the area of wall art apart from wood frames.
Though we relate it to rustic instead of thinking about what we can do with this simple substance, wood is much more versatile than one may think.
It can be used in more artistic ways to dress the walls of your house like any other piece of art. Here are some overheads of what you can do with wood!
Whether it’s on one slab of wood or several, drawing your own silhouettes (the dark shape and outline of someone or something visible against a lighter background) on the wood piece can create a beautiful piece of simple art for the living room, in your home office or study.
The advantage is that you can draw anything of your choice like flowers, landscapes, city skylines and after assembling the pieces, you will love your creativity on the wall art.
Create something unique and simple using recycled wood pieces. Collect pieces of wood and keep them in their original shades or color them yourself to match your home’s decor. Though this piece is a bit rustic (of the countryside or local) but with the color and design it’s quite the eclectic, cultural piece as well.
For something incredibly beautiful, organic and homey, try a little something Man Made. It’s a little masculine and blends well with a lot of different themes and room artistic composition. However, it’s a lot easier to make than you may think! Cut short stems and glue them on a piece of wood to make a beautiful ensemble.
4. Mini posters
Use wood scraps to create mini posters. Cover them with fabric and write what you want on it. For example, you may even want to add your name, initials or something different. Also, you can write directly on the wood without covering it with the fabric.
With wood, ideas are endless. Try as many as possible and you will love the results.
