How to Create DIY Large Wall Art

First, gather your materials to make the process seamless. You will need to purchase just a few things, as you likely already have some at home.

What You’ll Need

  • A 55×70 frame from Ikea
  • An acrylic sheet from Home Depot
  • 24×36 image prints (Pro tip: Get these online or through a drugstore photo center like Walgreens or CVS!)
  • A drill
  • Double-sided tape
  • 3M Damage-free picture hangers

Once you have your materials all set up, you’re ready to get started!


  1. Take your double-sided tape and attach the image print to your acrylic sheet.
  2. Use a nail or the 3M picture hanger to adhere the frame to your wall. (If you’re a renter, you can still do this DIY—just be sure whatever you use to hang the frame isn’t going to leave a mark.)
  3. Finally, use your drill to add a screw to the acrylic so you can hang it, and you’re all set!

Tips for Making It Your Own

Similar to how you can customize your gallery wall to reflect you, it’s possible to make this your own. Here are some quick tips to help you do so.

  • Use the frames for family pictures or posters that are meaningful to you. For example, you can pick a vintage travel poster from a vacation destination your family loves or incorporate photos of loved ones throughout to make this DIY unique.
  • As shown in the video, you can mix and match image sizes. Your images don’t have to be 24×36—do what feels right for you.
  • While we love the look of these frames in a row, you can mix and match other artwork throughout for a more eclectic look. If you’re interested in this, try making this simple DIY textured wall art—it would pair beautifully with these chic frames!
  • If you’d prefer gold or silver frames, you can purchase the ones suggested by the creator at Ikea and spray paint them. Or, you can source different frames altogether—the possibilities are endless.
