10 Ways to add art to your home

6Wall decals

One of the hottest trends right now is to plaster your wall with sticker-like wall decals. Great options can be found on Etsy as well as at Urban Outfitters. Because many are so vibrant, they’re all you’ll really need to decorate a wall space.

7Get painting

You don’t have to be a member of the Group of Seven to paint well. So make like an artiste, grab a canvas, a paintbrush and, well, get painting. Don’t worry about staying within the lines; the messier you get making the piece – and the more fun you have – the more unique and “you” it will look.

8Take those old records off the shelf

Vintage records are a hot commodity, especially by people who are hoping to hang some vintage art on their walls. If you have some hiding in your closet, why not pull them out and arrange them on your wall to create an eclectic and musically memorable collage.

9Use magazines

Before recycling your old copies or Vogue, rip off the cover and frame it; many vintage Vogue magazines sell for hundreds of dollars [unframed].

10Organize an art swap

Your friends are bound to want some new art to update their space, so organize an art swap of sorts. Supply the wine and cheese and ask friends to bring over any pieces they don’t want. One person’s trash is another person’s treasure!
