DIY Geometric Print

Geometric triangle prints are one of the biggest trends of 2012 so I thought I’d get in on the action and make something for my home without breaking the bank. Here is a really easy tutorial that you can whip up in less than an hour and adorn your walls with the freshest prints!

What you will need:

  • Brown parcel paper
  • Acrylic paint
  • Dish sponge
  • Picture frame


1. Cut your brown parcel paper to size using your frame as a guide

2. Cut your dish sponge into a triangle (I used a ruler to get it straight).

3. Start sponging your triangles onto the paper – it doesn’t need to be precise.

4. Once the paint is fully dry, scrunch your paper up into a ball to give it some texture.
