Fun, Fabulous & (Virtually) Free: 5 Ideas for DIY Wall Art

I love it when I come across genius ideas for wall art that cost next to nothing. Wait! Hold on to those shoe boxes. (Oh, and your toilet paper rolls, too.) It is amazing what you can do with cardboard, paper, a couple of cans of spray paint, and some unleashed creativity.

For the novice DIY-er, project number one is a fail-proof choice. Step one: buy frame. Step two: buy marbled paper. Step three: insert paper in frame. Step four: Bask in your money-saving, home-improving, art-making glory!

I'm currently in between stages in project number five (white paint is drying in the garage) and I can't wait to hang up my $0 chevron wall art. If you are looking to liven up some wall space on a budget, or to re-use before you recycle, here are five great ideas for DIY wall art.
