Inexpensive DIY Blow Dryer Art

Here is the perfect DIY blow dryer artwork. I’ve always struggled with picking out artwork. In fact, we’ve lived in this house for almost 4 years and I don’t have a single piece of artwork hung.


As I’ve been making over our hallway, it seems like the perfect place to have some artwork. It was extremely hard for me to figure out what to do. I tried a large piece of artwork but it didn’t quite fill out the space


Instead, I decided to use these large canvases and leftover paint to make this blow dryer art. Trust me, anyone can make this!



What you need for DIY blowdryer artwork

  • Paints – you can acrylic/ craft/ even interior paints

  • Water

  • Several disposable cups

  • Pop sickle sticks

  • Canvas

  • Blow dryer with narrow piece nozzle

  • Apron

  • Newspaper


Let’s make our DIY blow dryer art


1. Set up your station. Put an ample amount of newspaper down because it will get messy. I did mine outside in case the paint-splattered. I don’t want any on my white walls

2. Dilute all your paints and mix well. You want your paints to be runny, just slightly thicker thank water but def thinner than a smoothie



3. Pour your paints. Start with white and then add the colors. Try to fill different parts of the canvas so you get good coverage. Tip: after some experimentation, I learned to add the black after you blow-dry the other colors. The black mucks up the canvas.



4. Use the blowdryer at a high hot speed to spread the paints. You’ll see that the thinner the paint solution, the easier it is to spread.



5. Let it dry on a flat surface. Once dry, hang it up and enjoy your artwork

That’s all it takes. I love how fun and organic this was to create! Find me over on Instagram for more affordable DIYs.
