1. Choose the right art.

The first step is to choose the right art for your gallery wall. You'll want to find pieces that have a gothic feel, such as images of bats, owls, ravens, skulls, or other dark and macabre subjects. You can also find gothic art that features religious symbols, such as crosses or angels.
