5-Minute DIY Botanical Wall Art
When I recently gave our guest bathroom a $100 makeover, the one thing I didn't have in the space was art. I knew the room needed something, but I wasn't quite sure what that something was, which is the case a lot of the time with decorating. These things take time, and I would rather have nothing on the wall, than spend time and money on something I didn't really like, and wasn't quite right for the space.
Recently, on my drive home from work, I had the perfect idea for the art I wanted in the guest bathroom. (Isn't that how it always is, you have the best ideas when you can't write them down!) I wanted to add a little bit of green, and maybe something that felt a little tropical.
So, here it is, my 5-minute botanical wall art! All you need are 12" x 12" picture frames and some faux leaves. I picked up a 2-pack of frames at Michaels, (or, you can find similar frames on Amazon), and a single bunch of tropical leaves.
The first thing you will need to do is cut the individual leaves from the stems, I used my vise grip pliers for this part. Then you simply take the back off your frame and position your leaves on the glass (or plastic in this case), flip the photo insert so the white side is now the background to your leaves, and then replace the back of the frame. So easy!
Five minutes was all it took for me to have brand new art for out guest bathroom! And it adds the beautiful color and texture that was just what this space needed!
You will have to bear with me on the finished product pics; this bathroom has no natural light, and opens into a hallway, so the lighting is not fabulous. But, here you go!
I created 3 pieces of botanical wall art to place above the board and batten in this guest bathroom. The black frames add some much needed contrast, and the bright green leaves were exactly what this space needed to give it a little personality! And I love how the leaves have so much more detail than what a simple print would have had. It's the perfect wall art!
