Wall Medallions

Finding the perfect artwork for your space does not have to break your budget when you can create a custom art wall with Ceiling Medallions.  The look is extraordinary and is one of the easiest DIY projects you can ever attempt.  In a recent post here at Jigsaw, we shared tips and information about Ceiling Medallions being applied around chandeliers and light fixtures for a polished look.  In this post, we will dig a little deeper and teach you how to install this unique look yourself for a dramatic statement in your home, office, or business.

To create the wall you will need to the following items to begin: Medallions, paint, paint brushes, hanging wall tape, painters tape and paper.    The first step will be to purchase the Medallions, which come in a variety of sizes, and styles and are readily available in the marketplace.  They can also be found on-line at architecturaldepot.com and classicceilings.com.  The Jigsaw team have found the quality to be nice and made of good materials and not plastic.  Prices range generally from $12-$55 and can go upwards from there.

The next step will be to paint the medallions.  Painting the medallions the same color as your wall creates a gorgeous custom designer look.  The Jigsaw Designers like using a variety of designs and sizes with a monochromatic color scheme for maximum impact.  Contrasting colors or accent colors are also beautiful.  You will see in the images below where the medallions were layered on top of rolled raffia for an interesting play on textures.  Be free to be as creative as you want.  This look is exciting and unique, and there are no rules.


Once your wall and medallions are painted and dried, the next step is to choose the layout.  Follow the same method for hanging as with picture frames.  Trace the shapes on paper and tape them on the wall, or simply lay them out on the floor.  Next, since the medallions are so light weight you can easily apply Double Sided Hanging Tape to the back of the medallion and then press onto the wall.  Viola!  That simple.

Wall medallions create a fresh and unique look that is exclusively yours.  You can also incorporate photos on your medallion wall by simply taping the images to the back of the center cut-out.  We hope this post will give rise to your imagination for your very own medallion wall.
