The kitchen is often one of the most overlooked rooms when it comes to wall decor.
It's understandable! It's often more important to spend time and money on things like new countertops, shelving, and appliances. The art that goes on the wall might become an afterthought.
However, we think putting up beautiful, eye-catching art in the kitchen is absolutely worth it.
A great piece of art in the kitchen can bring the design of the room together. It doesn't have to be expensive, and it's actually really easy to DIY a stunning piece of wall art for your kitchen.
Here are some of our favorite easy DIY kitchen wall decor ideas. Some of them are as easy as printing out a cute design, and others are perfect for crafters who love a bit of a challenge. All of these ideas are great if you are trying to save some money! Some of these projects are upcycled, and others just use affordable materials that you might already have on hand.

Design Dread: What to Do With a Blank Kitchen Wall?
Deciding how to decorate a big blank wall can be one of the biggest DIY design challenges, especially if you are trying to stick to a budget. You need enough art to cover a large area, but it still has to look cohesive.
Not to worry! We have some great tips for decorating a blank kitchen wall. One of these ideas is something that my mom did in our kitchen when I was a kid. The decor is actually still up to this day, because it looks great! Try and guess which one it is, as you read these fun design tips for blank walls.
- Install decorative hooks into your kitchen wall and use them to hang pretty pots and pans, aprons, dish towels, and more.
- Love food magazines? Cut out your favorite pages and frame them using frames from the Dollar Store. Arrange them to make an inexpensive, food-themed gallery wall.
- Install a shelf and display your favorite cookbooks.
- Install a few shallow shelves and display an herb garden. You can also store cute grocery items here, like olive oil, fresh lemons, and sea salt.
- Install hanging baskets to store fresh fruit, vegetables, and bread.
- Or you can combine ideas 5 and 6 for a beautiful hanging basket herb garden, as shown below!
- Decorate your blank kitchen wall with thrifted vintage jello molds. The copper color makes for a cohesive design that really pops, and they are easy to hang.
Did you guess which kitchen wall decor idea is a favorite from my childhood? It's the jello molds! You might be surprised by the different shapes of jello molds you can find. My mom's collection includes various geometric shapes, a decorative bundt pan, a fish, and a lobster.
Yes, the lobster looks pretty weird. But we like it anyway.
Of course, you can also add any of the above cute kitchen wall decor ideas to your blank kitchen wall.
