Furnishings and personal touches are what transform a house into a home. Indeed, there’s no better talking point, and symbol of affection, than a piece of unique artwork or design that has personal significance to those you share your home with. Whether you’re a parent, a spouse, or a roommate, there’s certainly precious moments and memories you’d like to commemorate in some way.
Creative and Unique Artwork Ideas
If you’ve been looking for unusual, unique and one-of-a-kind ideas to decorate your home, then look no further. Why not try a custom wall hanging with a personal message for yourself? Or perhaps even something you’ve made with your own hands. Perhaps one of the following ideas could work with your household…
Turn Vacation Snaps into Canvas Art
There’s no shortage of online services offering to blow up and print photographs to make personal wall art, and the good news is they generally have an excellent standard and finish. You can shop around to find a product and price that works for you; companies offer photos printed onto wood, acrylic and even produced with a 3D effect.
Landscapes make for particularly impressive personal wall art. So if you’ve been on a trip together recently, and photographed a beautiful panorama, head online to see how it would look printed out. You could even create an artificial green wall, so that it can serve as the perfect background for your pictures. You can also draw inspiration from it to decorate other parts of your home.
Also, if you’re looking to choose your next vacation spot – and want to come back with wall-art-worthy photos – you’d do worse than booking yourself a Bryce Canyon hotel to capture the magnitude of Western America’s sweeping rock structures.
Commission Each Other to do a Portrait
If you’re game for a laugh, sit down and have a go at painting or drawing a portrait of each other! As long as you all agree not to be offended – and also agree to all try your best – then you may end up with some lovely, and truly unique, pieces of art to frame and display in your home. If you are really good, you can take inspiration from the portrait collections of art collectors like Charles Saatchi. Whatever you paint, try not to get offended by the finished product, though!
Mark a Special Occasion with a Long-Lasting Souvenir
Whether it’s a wedding or a big birthday, you will find plenty of inspirational ideas online for event souvenirs that guests can contribute to. Whether that’s personalised gifts or just pulling into together to get the couple a special present that you know they will love. For example, if the couple have recently moved and they are looking for decor ideas, you could get them some wall art! Some friends of mine are massive comic book fans, so if they get married I’ll look into Joker Posters or something similar for them! Personalised gifts are always a winner though, so here are a few ideas! For bachelorette parties, ask each woman in the party to pucker up and kiss a piece of paper, and sign their name. If you’re celebrating a birthday, dig out some old photos, one for every year so far, and collage them together. Try hanging your favorite memories up on with a little string and some clothes pins… The possibilities are endless.
With a little creative flair, you’ll have a piece of art that captures your cherished memories for a lifetime.
Eternalize Your Favorite Outfits as Art
It’s so hard to part with clothes that you love, even if they no longer fit or have got so misshapen they can’t be worn anymore. So, instead of allowing them to take up space in your closet, consider taking a cut from the fabric and framing it. This way, you’re not saying goodbye to the good times, you’re just repurposing this beloved item.
Get Creative and Go for it
Whatever you choose to do as a household, you’ll put your individual spin on it and, as such, will create a one-of-a-kind piece of art that everyone will be asking about.
