Artwork is one of the ways to make your home unique and interesting. With gallery walls being so popular you can easily spend a small fortune on filling your wall. The same can be said about buying a larger canvas. I am all for supporting artists and creatives. But if you’re looking for affordable artwork there are some other options in the meantime while saving for that spectacular painting you’ve had your eye on.

Here’s a few alternatives for wall decor that are affordable and won’t leave you out of pocket!

1. Online Art Prints

Art prints are available at so many online stores like Etsy, Desenio and Society 6. There are so many art styles and artists to choose from it might take you a while to have a browse. But once you’ve found a piece of artwork you love it’s worth it.

Obviously prices will vary depending on the size and piece of work. Use the price filter for strict price budget.

2. Calendars

You can get a nice sized wall calendar for a fraction of the price of one piece of artwork. That means 12 potential pieces all in one. If you have an old wall calendar see if you like any of the art on there.

Or just buy a calendar purely for the art. Find a calendar you love and frame the pages you love.

3. Note Cards

Another affordable artwork hack… buying a pretty pack of notecards. Frame your favourite ones as a series along a wall.

4. Dried Flowers

If you like botanical prints this one is pretty simple. Pick your favourite flowers and press and dry them. Just by placing the flowers between a piece of paper and under some heavy books for a couple of weeks, you can make your own botanical piece of artwork.

5. Magazines

There are some amazing editorials in magazines such as Kinfolk, Ebony, Wallpaper and the National Geographic. It’s almost a shame to tear apart any of these magazines but guaranteed it will look good on your wall!

Fashion editorials would look great on a wall in a walk in closet.

6. Photos

It’s time to take some of those photos off the 1000 and more you have saved on your phone and put on your wall! There are lots of online printing services like Snapfish and Shutterfly.

7. DIY

You can create your artwork yourself. If you’re thinking I’m no good at art that’s why I’m looking to get it elsewhere, that maybe true but there are artists and courses that you can follow along with step by step.

That way you have a guide and you end up creating something made from your own hand. Artist Laura Horn has some follow along courses available as do many other artists.
