Feature Friday- Faux Metal Wall Art

by Susan Myers on December 31, 2010

Looking for the Faux Metal Wall Art?  Since this project was originally published on The Sitcom in December 2010, it has been my most popular project by far.  Who knew that a bunch of toilet paper tubes and an idea would become so big?

You can now find the full tutorial and FREE patterns on Suzys Artsy Craftsy Sitcom here: Faux Metal Wall Art

I want to personally thank all my readers for making my Faux Metal Wall Art so popular! It is an incredible honor to be included in this magazine!

A similar project to check out would be my Faux Metal Filigree Frame.

Hi Suzy…. I stumbled upon your site while searching for DIY some craft projects… loved your faux metal idea. Congratulations on the project being featured in Crafts n Things.

Have been waiting for a full tutorial for quite some time now, as you mentioned in your previous comment that you might put it back in mid June… any estimate on when you might be able to publish the tutorial again?

Hi!
The full tutorial came out in crafts n things magazine in June. I can republish the tutorial on my site at the end of August. Thanks so much for your kind words!

I have tried in vain to find the tutorial to the faux metal wall art…the 4 squares with swirled design within the squares. They are just beautiful, and I would very much like to make it. Could you please either make the tutorial available on your website, or direct me to where I can find it?

Thank you very much.

Hi Donna,

The Faux Metal Wall Art project was picked up by a major magazine and will be published mid summer. Until then, I had to pull the tutorial from my website due to copyright laws. I will republish the tutorial most likely around mid June. In the meantime, you can check out my Faux Metal Filigree Frames located in the link above. The project is very similar and uses the same supplies for the most part. Thanks so much for your interest in my projects!

I originally got the idea for the TP faux wall art from “Evolution of Home” and found your website from her as well. I am new to the Blog World and I have just recently started my own blog called “Life as I Ponder it…” I would love for you to visit me and give me some pointers on my blog and how I’m doing! I am in the middle of doing my “wall art” project and should post it hopefully tomorrow 1/24/12, so I hope you have the time to hop on over and see the finished product! Thanks again for the tutorials and ideas, I will definitely give credit where credit is due! Happy Blogging and DIYing….I will put your “button” on my page so that people can come visit you as well, if you don’t mind! Thanks again for the ideas and the wonderful tutorials!

I am in love with your wall art! I have started my own blog on ideas that I have gotten from Pinterest. I got the faux wall art TP idea from “Evolution of Home.blogspot.com… she mentioned you in in one of her tutorials and that is how I found you! I am in the process of making my own TP faux wall art and hope that you visit my site and see how I’m doing! Happy Blogging and thanks for more ideas!

She wanted to know if you sell these and, if so, how much would it cost? She's not artsy-craftsy anymore, and neither am I, but she would love to have one of these! Thanks!!

Hi Anonymous!

Please let me know how your project comes out! In answer to your question, I used Valspar Metal Interior Spray Paint. I bought it at Michaels quite a while back off their discount shelf.

Love them! But I'm having a little trouble matching the metal spray paint. Can you tell me the metal color and/or brand you used?? Thanx!! I hope to start making them in a week!

You can find balsa wood at most craft stores such as Michaels or Hobby Lobby. And hobby shops sell it too. Please send photos of your finished project!! I would love to see it!

You are brilliant and your project is fantastic! Something faux I did was make blue cardboard drawer units from Walmart look like real wood. (spray paint them black, paint brown acrylic in streaks rubbing off some paint) People had to look up close and touch it to see for themselves.

Wow, I would never have thought these were anything but metal or possibly plastic. Never would have thought toilet paper tubes could look so chic.

Suzy – That is absolutely amazing, and the best use of toilet rolls I've ever seen. I used to collect TP rolls obsessively, but can no longer find anyone who wants them – other than letting the rats chew them. I think I'll be collecting again! I especially like that these decorations are light weight, so no worry about knocking them off the wall onto the floor.

Wow!
I've been looking for a way to use all of the tp tubes I've collected. This is definitely the fanciest art/craft I've seen so far. Thanks, I LOVE it!!!

Shut the front door! No way…..that is flipping awesome. It is posts like this that make me less than crafty. I am glad I saw this…..maybe I will absorb some of your craftiness by osmosis.

Ok, I am crazy mad impressed with how these turned out. And kind of still laughing at the image of bags of toilet paper rolls being thrust at you.

I can't believe I haven't already been following you!

Amazing. Truly amazing. You must have a great deal of patience to make toilet paper rolls look that good. Someday Crafts featured you and I can see why she did. My jaw is still on the floor.

Ingenious! I might have to try this, but we'll have to collect the t.p. rolls first! Love that you don't have to mar the walls with huge anchors to hang them.
