First: WHY create a custom lock screen wallpaper? 

A better question to ask is: “Why the heck not?” Wallpapers are the perfect photo editing project for beginners and at PicsArt we strongly believe that when your phone looks good, you feel good! ?‍♀️?‍♂️

Not to mention, everyday activities like checking the time and scrolling through your notifications become SO much more satisfying when you’re greeted by an aesthetic background. Right?! Wallpapers truly are the gift that keeps on giving ?✨ 

There’s no wrong way to design a cute wallpaper for your home screen, but there are a few tricks that are essential for anyone looking to become a wallpaper whiz. In our experience, the best way to learn is by watching and following along step by step. So, we searched high and low for the best PicsArt wallpaper tutorials out there! What we uncovered is *chef’s kiss.*

Below, you’ll find four different, but equally awesome step-by-step PicsArt wallpaper tutorials (three of which were made by PicsArt community members!) to guide you on your lock screen journey. Together, they make up a miniature wallpaper boot camp that will not let you down ?
