DIY Geometric Wood Panel Wall Art

Making your own statement wall art piece is easy! Follow this simple tutorial to make your own geometric wall art.

Our entry way was in need of an update. I adored the gold sunburst mirror I made for the space, but like almost every other area in the house, I had the itch to redo it.

I liked the idea of hanging the artwork that sat on the narrow foyer table but felt that I needed one larger art piece to be the focal point.  That’s where this geometric wall art comes in! Using some of my favorite supplies I had on hand I was able to take a plain wood panel and make custom art for the space that coordinates with the other art work oh-so-perfectly.

Supplies: wood panel / foam brush/ wood stain / painter’s tape / double-sided tapecraft paint / brush / geometric template

Paint a wood panel board with wood stain to create your own geometric wall art (click through to see the final piece).

Step 1: Use a foam brush to apply the wood stain to the wood panel. Paint in the direction of the wood grain.

Apply wood stain with a brush and wipe it off using a paper towel. Easy way to create wall art that matches your home!

Step 2: Use a paper towel to wipe off the excess stain. If you want a darker, richer color, allow the paint to soak into the wood board for a few minutes. Allow it to dry completely, about 1 hour.

Paper hexagons are used as a template for creating this lovely geometric wall art.

Step 3: Print and cut out the geometric tile template and arrange them on the wood panel how you want them. Once they are in place, temporarily adhere them to the wood panel using the double-sided tape.

Apply painters tape around paper hexagons to create stencils for a beautiful, modern wall art piece.

Step 4: Apply painter’s tape around the hexagons to create your stencils. Use your fingers to press down the tape and remove any bubbles.

Step 5: Paint each geometric shape. Make sure to paint away from the edges of the tape to minimize the paint bleeding through. Apply 2-3 coats, or until the paint looks nice and solid. Once you’ve applied the last coat, carefully remove the tape before the paint drys. This prevents the paint from sticking to the edges of the tape and peeling up when you remove it.
