A place without decorations wouldn’t feel much like a home. Whether you just move into a new house or you simply want to spruce up your old nest, you can always do something to decorate your space to make it cozy and beautiful at the same time. While there is an abundance of decorations out there that are readily available in various stores, you can always bring your own touch and make your mark with your home decorations. The easiest and most affordable way is by putting on wall art that reflects your personality.

Here are a few ideas of what you can make into wall art.


This goes without saying, but your own photos will instantly make your space feels like yours. Whether you put photos of you and your family, or photos that you took from travels and other things, the possibility is endless. There are so many ways you can display your photos, so don’t stick with just one option. Mix it up to make it interesting. Use frames, make canvas prints, create a collage of your photos, or hang them on a string using clips. Fill your home with the memories you cherish.


Quotes are very versatile and deeply personal. You can either choose the ones that fit you, or you can come up with your own quotes. You can fill the space with good vibes using motivating or positive quotes, or if you like the witty and funny ones, you can use those instead to bring smiles to you and your loved ones. Whether you make it yourself with brush-lettering or you buy the print(s), choose quotes that are truly ‘you’. An alternative to quotes is song lyrics. For music lovers, this would be the way to go.


Nothing put your stamp quite like your own work. This is where you can go all out and be as creative as you wish. Nothing is too wild or too crazy, the sky’s the limit. Watercolor art or oil painting, graphic prints or pencil drawings, quilt or embroidered wall art, everything goes. Your wall is the blank canvas, and you can fill it with whatever you want.

If you have kids, let them be a part of this decorating project. Frame their artwork or craft, and it’s ready to be displayed.

Postcard wall

If you’re a travelling junkie and fond of collecting mementos, why not making it into a wall art? Don’t let your keepsakes gather dust in the storage. Pull out your postcard collection and arrange them to make a wall art. You can either frame them or use a wooden board to pin them. Either way, your postcards will be there to give a glimpse of your adventures. Of course, postcards are not the only thing from your travel that you can display. If you like to collect coasters from your trip, you can use those instead of postcards.


While maps don’t sound very personalised, you can make it meaningful by choosing maps of places that mean something to you. The city you currently live in, your hometown, the place where you met your partner, or maybe your dream destination. On top of that, you also have many options for the style. Vintage, retro, minimalist, you can easily find map prints in many online shops that suit your taste. If you have more budget and want a more personalised map, there are a lot of artists and illustrators that can create custom maps. With custom maps, you can decide what to include and what to leave out, and do so much more.

Old calendar pages

Sometimes wall calendars can come with stunning pictures or illustrations, and if there’s something you particularly like, you can frame it and hang it on the wall. Even better, calendar images are usually based on a theme, so you can take more than one and hang them up in a grid formation. Easy and effortless, but unique nonetheless!

Yarn tapestry

This is the type of wall art that grabs attention, all eyes will gravitate toward this piece of art. Choose neutral and pastel colors for a subtle look, and bright colors if boldness and audacity are your thing.

We hope these wall art ideas can help you decorate your space and make it feel like home. If you’d like to decorate your home with personalised items, Photojaanic would love to help you.
