What You Need to Make Your Own DIY Wood Wall Art

To make our colorful DIY wood wall art canvas pieces you will need:

DIY Wood Supplies
  • Wood Canvas (We used a wood canvas and flipped it over to create a framed look)
  • Square Dowels
  • Sand Paper
  • Dowel Cutter/Saw
  • Paint (We used two different shades of one color, a lighter and darker)
  • Wood Glue

How To Make Our Fun Wall Art DIY

There are just a few easy steps you need to take to create this fun DIY wood wall art!

How to Make Wood Wall Art
  1. First, you want to start by measuring and cutting your square dowels the sizes you will need.
  2. Make sure to sand all wood surfaces for a clean look. Also, don’t forget to wipe any remaining dust from the wood before you begin painting.
  3. Then I like to place my wood pieces onto my canvas to make sure I find a good layout I like before painting. (Helpful Tip: Take a quick photo of the layout you like, so when you go to glue them down you can refer back to your photo for their placement!)
  4. Next paint each dowel piece with your darker paint color.
  5. Then paint your wood canvas with your lighter paint color.
  6. Once those are dry, use wood glue to secure each piece to your canvas in the layout that you created before.
  7. Now let that dry!

If you want to hang your wood canvas, you can always attach a small wall hanger to the back!
