Decorative woven wall baskets are a luxury look in home decor you can make for pennies on the dollar using Americana® Acrylics

SUPPLIES

    • #8 flat brush
    • #6 round brush
    • Woven Charger
    • Command Strips

    INSTRUCTIONS

    NOTES:

    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.
    2. Instruction #1
    3. 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.
    4. Instruction #2
    5. I chose to paint with blues and white in Metallic Ice Blue, True Blue and Snow because they work so well together.
    6. Instruction #3
    7. 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.
    8. Instruction #4
    9. Paint each section of the charger with 1 coat of paint. Let it dry completely before adding a second coat.
    10. Instruction #5
    11. 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.
