I’ve always wanted to have a Wes Anderson gallery wall.
While I wouldn’t fill a wall with Margot Tenenbaum drawings, I do love how you can create a cohesive look using a variety of frames and colorful images. Since we’re moving to a new home next month, I’ve begun envisioning my dream gallery wall. I have a lot of saved artwork that I plan on framing but I wanted to make something extra special for our new place.
I was inspired by a DIY I saw on Pinterest where you transfer a photograph onto a block of wood.
Using wood as the canvas and frame gives the image a rustic gallery look. I figured if you could do it with photographs, why not comic books?
So using wood blocks, paint, and color copies of some of my favorite comic book images, I made my own Comic Book Wall Art pieces! These pieces were super easy to make and the total materials cost was under $10!
HERE’S WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
- Wood Blocks, cut into 5.5″ squares ($3)
- Comic Book Images (.59 cents per color copy)
- Acrylic Paint (.79 cents to $1.49)
- Paint Brushes
- Mod Podge ($5-$20 depending on size)
- Picture Hangers ($3)
