DIY Paintbrush Statement Art

DIY Paintbrush Statement Art

This DIY Paintbrush Statement Art has us written all over it. We LOVE color and we LOVE to paint so this super fun hanging art was a really fun and simple project! It’s perfect for any craft studio! We love the movement and touch of whimsy it adds.

This project is pretty simple and while it may not be for everybody, it’s really cool and you can get creative and hang different objects the same way, not just paintbrushes!

First, tape off the wooden handle of your paint brush.

Paint the wooden handle and the ends of your bristles. Latex paint takes longer to dry but works great. We used some latex and some acrylic, just whatever colors we liked in our stash.

Hang the paintbrushes

Last, (sorry we forgot to get a photo of this part) thread your fishing line through the hole at the end of the brush. We did a giant loop and strung them at different lengths to create the angle. You could do them all evenly or mismatched or create the angle like we did.

Colorful paintbrush art

Kinda crazy, really fun and unique, don’t you think?

In our craft studio reveal, some people though the paintbrushes were painted on the curtain, I love that idea too!
