# Driftwood branches for wall decor
Tired of boring square or rectangular wall frames? Give a fun twist to wall hangings using found driftwood branches. For this minimalist project, all you need is collect branches of different lengths and shapes. Remove rough edges, buds, and unnecessary growths with the sander to give a smoother appeal. Use spray paint that goes well with your wall color and the strong twiggy tree branches are ready to be mounted on the wall using small metal brackets. Try to keep the size of brackets as small as possible so that they don’t spoil the overall appeal of the wall and art.
The asymmetry in design is great for hanging photographs or other decor objects on it. If you don’t want to overload the branches with picture frames or other objects, simple wrap LED lighting strip around them to bring that rustic appeal of the woods into your living room.
Clipboards can be used to form an attractive gallery wall. These are extremely easy to find and give an industrial appeal to any place. You can paste your childhood photographs or other memorable photographs of your school, home or office on the clipboards. Afterwards, these can be fixed on the walls to create a wonder art gallery within any contemporary interior. It is a great décor idea for your office, home, or any place you like.
# Strings and clips
Another cool way to decorate your walls without frames is using Christmas strings. Well, this doesn’t necessarily need to be done on a special occasion. The simple trick can be used to casually decorate walls of your living space. All you need to give your walls a festive makeover is attaching light strings in a zig-zag fashion using multiple nails or cello tape. Hang few photos through the string using paper clips or clothespins. The wall décor will look truly whimsical when you’ll turn on the lights, giving you flashbacks of good old days.
# Washi tape
A trending new way to decorate your walls creatively is using washi tape. Originated from Japan as a masking tape, it is made from Japanese rice paper. Thankfully, decorative washi tape can be used in a number of ways on walls if you have that creative bend of mind. You can make different patterns on walls, outlines for the picture to create picture frames or create wall decals. The best thing about this masking tape is that it can be easily removed from walls when needed.
