DIY crystal artwork: Natural crystal pieces in box frame

In case you hadn’t noticed, we’ve become a little crystal obsessed lately. Whether it’s the healing properties of crystals or just the fact that they look so darn pretty, we can’t get enough of them!

So we felt inspired to create some wall art using crystals. Rather than creating a piece that’s made to look like crystals (aka faux crystal art), we decided to use real crystal pieces so we can tap into the natural properties of the stone — plus it makes for a much easier DIY that anyone can do!

This DIY couldn’t be simpler — all it involves is arranging small natural pieces of crystals in a uniform pattern on a white board to create a unique display.

You could use any crystal chips you like for this DIY but we chose Chrysophase — it’s said to help with relaxation, more peaceful sleep, promoting hope, giving personal insight and helping to be open to new situations. Chrysophase also energises the heart chakra and these all sounded like wonderful properties for our artwork.

Items you will need crystal art


1. Remove the back of the photo frame and cut a piece of foam board or cardboard to fit. Then find the centre point of the board and mark it with a pencil.

Find centre of board

2. Add a small spot of glue to the back of a crystal and place it on the centre point. Use the glue sparingly, otherwise it will spill out past the crystal and be visible.

Glue first crystal

3. Create a ring of crystals around the centre crystal you just glued. We left approximately 1.5cm of white space around the crystal and just used our eyes to guesstimate but you could draw a faint circle using pencil as a guide.

Begin making circles

4. Continue creating rings of crystals. You’ll notice that each crystal chip is slightly different in colour and shape so you can create different looks depending on the stones you choose.

5. Once you’ve finished, clean up any strings of glue that may be on your artwork and place the crystal board in your frame. Now it’s ready to display in your home!
