DIY Cloud Art

About a year ago I was flipping through one of my favorite decor books and I came across this amazing art installation of cloud art.

I loved how serene it was and I knew that I would somehow find a way to incorporate something like this in my home. 

Jett's room has a big empty wall so this was the perfect place for our gallery wall of cloud art. 


My husband is a pilot and he took all these pictures from the cockpit while he was flying which makes the art meaningful and special to us. I framed them in Ikea ribba frames and had the prints blown up at my local Walgreens. 

I love love love how they turned out and Jett really loves them too. Every morning when I come get him in his room he says, "Whoa, mom look at those clouds!" 


I am not the first one to attempt this project. 

Check out some other great DIY Cloud art. 


Amber from Amber Interior Design blew up a cloud photo for her dining room. 

Erica from Tart House also incorporated this idea in her bedroom. 


You can read more about her project here



Dina from Honey and Fitz created some cloud art for her bathroom. What a perfect place to dream about clouds. 

Jett's room is seriously coming along. Just a few more finishing touches and it will be done!

  6. After reading your post i think this is a great project. I think i might do something like this in my basement since you can't see the clouds from down there.

  8. What a neat idea. We are moving half way across the country next month, and it would be neat to bring the clouds of our current home to our new home for the kids. Have you come across any other ways of incorporating moves in art? I supposed maps would work. We are moving from Milwaukee to Charleston.

  20. Awesome idea! I love how it looks like a window to the outside. We could use a little more blue sky in the dark Northwest months.

  22. This is such a unique idea. My son's first birthday is this weekend and the theme is "You are My Sunshine" with suns/clouds/rainbows and this would be a great thing to add!

    Would love the follow back :)
