Simple, Chic, Inexpensive, Timeless Wall Art
I have this huge bare wall in my apartment and needed something to tie together my green walls with the black accents in my kitchen. Honestly, the results were much better than I expected. This DIY consists basically of covered pieces of styrofoam. It is super easy, inexpensive and looks amazing. I covered the foam with fabric to give it that “canvas” style look. In total I spent $40 to create the display ($20 foam, $16 fabric, and $4 glue; the rest I had lying around the house). I purchased the table at Walmart for $50.

Cut the cardboard pieces into the same shape as the foam and glue it onto what will be the backside of your wall display. Tip: I used office folders that I had lying around the house and cut them down the middle and as you can see, they’re not the same size as the foam. This didn’t help much in step #4 since the foam soaks up the glue from the fabric so I would recommend that the cardboard be the same size as the foam. Trust me.
Measure your fabric so that you have enough to completely cover the front and sides of the foam but leaving an opening in the backside. I purchased two different fabrics. they were the same pattern but inverted colors. Since I had a total of nine foam squares, I cut 5 squares of one fabric and 4 of the other to create a checkerboard effect.
