DIY Wall Hanging Decor: Decorative Cardboard Shelf & Wall Clocks

Bored of Typical DIY Wall Hanging Craft Ideas? Try Paint

What comes to your mind instantly whenever you hear the word DIY wall hanging? Something that hangs from a nail on the wall, right? But what if you live in a rented home, where you are prohibited from installing a nail and making any structural changes? As a result, your decor game goes for a toss. 

So, instead of hanging anything, you can paint the walls, and while vacating, you can repaint it just the way it was before. Yes, think about creating statement art pieces with wallpaint. Here’s an easy yet stunning wall decor you can definitely try.
