DIY Mondrian Inspired Art

Hi Lovelies!

I had some fun in the studio yesterday creating some art for my living room. If you weren’t here Tuesday, I shared my color inspiration for spring. Well, I tackled my first DIY for “project color”, this DIY Mondrian Inspired Art.



I studied a lot of art in college. When I saw this Mondrian Love Print on Lulu & Georgia while browsing– it took me back to those days. I just knew this was going to be my first DIY for this space.

Mondrian Love Print Lulu & Georgia

Original Piet Mondrian art looks like this:

I love the color blocking and line separations. The Lulu & Georgia version is a fun take on a classic. I thought this would be a good way to bring some of my color inspiration into this room.

And, yo! All you need is a thrifted frame and paper…inexpensive!!!!!


To make this DIY art you will need:

(5) 8.5 x 11 sheets of colored cardstock

1 gold piece of poster board (I tried to find smaller shiny gold paper but this was all that I could find.)

2 sheets of art quality paper 

scissors, glue, artist tape

1 sheet of 8.5 x 11 computer paper 

pencil and ruler


Design the pattern. The first thing you will want to do is make a template for your shapes. I just used a 8.5 x11 piece of computer paper and drew out my design with a pencil and ruler. Then, I cut out each shape and taped it back in place with artist’s tape so I wouldn’t lose my design. I didn’t feel like putting the puzzle back together…


Cut it out. Now that you have all your shapes, you can trace them onto your cardstock. I just chose my colors as I was going. Do what feels right to you. Each time I cut one out I taped it back in place.


Glue it. I glued each piece in place on a piece of artist quality paper. It is thicker paper and good quality. Once that was done, I glued that paper to a larger piece of artist’s paper so I would have a white background.

glue it

Add separation lines. The final touch is to add your separation lines. I cut equal width strips of my gold paper and glued them on.

gold-lines Isn’t that easy?! I love the color play and it looks pretty darn fab for just the cost of paper and a thrifted frame.

I will be doing a lot of inexpensive DIY art for my art wall that I am adding to the living room and I will be sharing it as I go.

Here’s where my DIY Mondrian Inspired Art is hanging out until the install is ready.


As I shared yesterday it all started with these roses…

    Oh, this is so, so good! Fantastic job and the colors make me think that the weather might actually warm up one of these days. 😉

      Thanks so much Laurie :) It has so much more meaning too when you make things to display in your home :) I have a connection with Piet Mondrian from my art days and it makes me think of that time when I look at it :) xo Kristin

      Thanks Allison :) I was actually on the hunt for shiny gold washi tape and couldn’t find it so I went with the paper strips. Washi would work great :)


I love your comments!!!
