DIY // Hometown Paintings

IMG_9540 I love the minimalist white walls + wood floor look of my new place in Copenhagen, but it definitely was in need of a little art to give it some love and character. Since I am away from home and wanted to be reminded of it sometimes, I decided to create a set of home paintings of all the places I have lived so far. The first is Arizona, then California where I attend school, and now Amager in Copenhagen, Denmark! Even though I have only been living in Denmark for abotu 2 and 1/2 months, I still consider it a home because it feels like one to me!


The only supplies you will need are canvases, a pencil, acrylic paint, and a paintbrush. This project was really simple. I just looked up images of each place and did a freehand sketch of each outline onto the canvas. You can easily print out + cut out a template if you're not as confident in your drawing skills! Then I just filled in all of the space around each outline. Doing the outside, rather than painting the state itself really made the paintings pop because they have a strong red border.

P.S. The color is up to you...I just happen to have a red Ikea desk chair I wanted to coordinate with!


The final step was to add a little heart in each city I lived in. You could also place this where the capitol of each place is, but I think this feels a little more personal. Each of these paintings only took me about 20 minutes to make!


And here is the final product! My walls are concrete so they are a bit difficult to hang, but I have them lined up on my radiator so I can see them right when I walk into my apartment every day. I think they are so cheery and personal! Try it out for yourself! x. Paige
