DIY Minimal Framed Palm Wall Art

DIY Framed Canvas Palm Pic 1

Tropical Palms are all the rage this year in home decor. I have to admit I am kind of obsessed with them myself right now. Minimal framed wall art also is popular right now. So I decided to marry the two trends and create this three dimensional palm canvas with a simple DIY frame.

This project first appeared on the Make It: Fun® Blog where I am a contributor each month. If you have been looking for inspiration that blog is sure to make an impression on you.

FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam is the perfect base for wall art. It is lightweight and easy to cut down to fit any size frame. Just cover it with canvas fabric and go from there. I used poplar square cut wood dowels to make a simple modern frame to fit the palm wall art.
