When it comes to making DIY projects, there are plenty of ways that we decide on which things we’d like to make. Sometimes we’re feeling very into a certain colour, sometimes it’s the actual piece that we need or want, and other times we’ve fallen in love with a pattern and we want to add more of it into our décor scheme. When we choose a pattern that we love that’s a particularly fun time because we immediately look up as many different projects and tutorials as we can find in that pattern and we make as many of them as we can! So, what’s our latest DIY and crafting obsession pattern, you ask? Well, our house is currently entirely covered in chevron!
In case you’re just as obsessed with chevron as we are, check out these 15 awesome DIY chevron projects! We’ve most of these already and had an absolute blast each time.
1. DIY chevron coat rack
Are you so in love with chevron that you want people to be able to see it the moment they walk into your home? We think that’s a great idea, which is why we actually already made ourselves one of these awesome painted wood coat racks. We love the way a brightly coloured chevron pattern really jumps out from the wall thanks to the angles and the contrast of whichever alternating colours you choose.
2. Chevron painted wall
Perhaps you appreciate chevron to the point that you’d rather make it a permanent part of your actual décor scheme? Well, you’ll certainly want to think carefully about which colours you choose because painting your walls is a lot of effort, but we’re huge fans of this entirely chevron wall from Ourrhodestohappiness! The idea of alternating white chevron stripes with brighter ones creates an awesome effect that really makes things stand out.
3. DIY woven chevron cards
Do you love chevron so much that you’d love to spread that appreciation to as many people as possible? Then making greeting or celebration cards for special occasions with your family and friends is a great opportunity to get creative with your favourite pattern and share it with the ones you love! Find out how these lovely cards were woven into a chevron shape on Fiskars!
4. DIY painted chevron lamp shade
The best thing about making chevron shapes is that they’re easy to create very neatly because you can make them simply by using tape as a guideline. That’s how this fantastic chevron patterned lampshade was made! By sticking down the tape pattern you can create yourself a guide to follow with the paint. Peel it off when it’s dry, just like Pomp and Circumstance did here, and voila!
