DIY Silhouette Gallery Wall Art

I love adding unique pieces of art to my gallery walls. What makes this easier? My Silhouette Cameo digital die cutting machine. I added two quick and easy pieces of art to my teenage son's wall using my Silhouette machine. You can use the Silhouette machine to make your DIY Gallery Wall Art. Here's a look at the wall so far:

For the "X" Framed Art:

1. Use the photo mat inside the frame to trace the outside shape on white posterboard (use the mat side rather than the glossy side).

2. Use scissors to cut out the shape. This rectangle should fit the inside of the frame. I used a Ribba Frame from Ikea for this project.

3. Use the Silhouette machine to cut several 3" to 4" plus signs from black cardstock.

4. Place the photo mat on top of the posterboard. Begin the design by placing the plus signs on the posterboard WITHOUT adhesive. Here are some ideas that I started with.

5. Once you get the placement how you like it, use glue dots or strong adhesive to hold the plus signs in place. Mount the plastic or glass inside the frame, followed by the photo mat, the designed posterboard, and finally the frame backing. Hang on the wall.

For the "Dude" Chalkboard Art:

1. Cut the word "dude" from white vinyl. I used the font "Bonjour," but I also tried another font just in case I wanted something different (you can see the second font choice at the top of the vinyl).

2. Peel away the vinyl and place it on the chalkboard. I used a circle chalkboard from Hobby Lobby. I placed the word in the bottom, right of the chalkboard. This is a word my son says ALL the time, so that is why I chose it.

3. Hang the art on the wall.

I am still building this gallery wall, and so far I have a Slinky art print from Hobby Lobby and a clock from Target. All items feature, black, white, and woodgrain patterns and colors. Here's a look at the BEFORE shot to help you see how a few key, die cut elements make great art:

And here is the AFTER shot one more time:
