INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Allow each section of paint to dry fully before adding another color, this will prevent paint colors from bleeding into each other.

  1. I found these amazing woven chargers at a discount store. They were perfect to create the Scandinavian-inspired wall art look I was going for. These wall hangings can get pretty pricey so I thought a DIY version was a great option.
    Step 0 Example
  2. TIP: These chargers already had lines that I used as a guide to create patterns which I painted free handed. If the chargers you find don't have lines, then painters tape is a great option to help create any lines or patterns you're making.
    Step 1 Example
  3. I chose to paint with blues and white in Metallic Ice Blue, True Blue and Snow because they work so well together.
    Step 2 Example
  4. For design inspiration I gathered several images of woven wall baskets with patterns I liked. I used the flat paint brush and started my first pattern at the bottom and worked my way around the charger. See finished photo for reference.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Paint each section of the charger with 1 coat of paint. Let it dry completely before adding a second coat.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Continue painting each charger in various patterns that complement one another. Once the paint has fully dried you can add a command strip to the back to hang on the wall.

HELPFUL HINTS

Tip #1: Pull up your inspiration photos before getting started. You can use these chargers as inspiration, go online or come up with your own unique ideas! Tip #2: For the best composition on your wall, paint an odd number of chargers - 3,5,7 - and in various sizes if you can find them.
