To be honest I’m not sure whether I can class this as a DIY, it literally only involves cutting paper..
But if you are looking for a very cheap and incredibly easy way of uniquely decorating your home then this “DIY” is for you. Another great reason to do this, other than being budget friendly and effortless is that no one else will have the same art on their wall as you.. – most likely. If they did it would be because you told them this trick, or a very eerie coincidence.

How To: DIY Cheap & Easy Home Art
Every year we buy lovely calendars to schedule our months and please our eyes, but most people at the end of every year throw them away. If you have specifically enjoyed a certain months picture, instead of disposing of it, simply cut it out and frame it.
Calendars nowadays can be so beautiful and intricate. So why throw away a picture that you would happily look at on your wall in exchange for buying expensive art? I have framed so many calendar pictures. I even use the festive month pictures as Christmas decor which I rehang every year.
What originally costs around £10 can leave you with twelve great pieces of unique art that others have likely overlooked. And if you are the type of person who likes to frequently change out their wall art, this DIY is even more amazing for you. You can have a stock of calendar photos ready and waiting to be hung. And if you ever do get truly bored of a picture it won’t hurt your wallet to throw it away. A single picture could cost you as little as 83p and you could get years of enjoyment out of it.
Another great way of using calendar pictures is to create a collage wall of cheap art. You can almost guarantee that all the pictures will all look good together if they came from the same calendar. Literally taking all the work out of it for you.
If your budget can’t afford the frames then use washi tape, use twine or clothes pegs to hang it on your wall. DIY your own poster hanger or go old school and get yourself some wooden clipboards. Below are some really cute options if you can’t afford or don’t fancy using traditional photo frames.
Here are some calendars, just to give you an example of the different types you have to choose from.
