Want to be productive in your spare time? Try these DIY decor ideas we’ve put together for you! They range from easy-peasy to slightly challenging, but doable and entertaining. Without further ado, scroll down to get inspired.
The first DIY home decor project you can undertake is to make these trendy glass vases from recycled bottles. It doesn’t take much to make one, you just need unused glass bottles, fresh flowers like roses or chrysanthemums and some craft supplies – white paint, gold glitter, anything will do. Once you have gathered these supplies, the next step is to decorate the vases to make them attractive.
A can of metallic gold spray can work wonders for DIY decor projects. Give it a try to refresh the look of your interior. Choose the items or pieces of furniture you planned to upgrade with the classic color and take them to a well-ventilated area. Remember to thoroughly clean all surfaces before spraying. Wait until they are completely dry before bringing them in. Pro tip: Cover any areas you don’t want sprayed with painter’s tape for a neat finish.
Spray paint can really go a long way when you’re on a budget. Use it to spice up anything solid and use it as bookends: rocks, logs, even bricks! It costs next to nothing but looks just as beautiful as those agate stone bookends on the market. Spray-painted bricks would also be a fun DIY gift idea, just make sure the color goes well with whoever you’re making the gift for.
Bless those who always keep their popsicle sticks. But if you’re not one of these people, or if you’re just not really into popsicles, you can still buy them at your nearest craft store to make a DIY shelf out of them. It certainly doesn’t cost as much as a brand new shelving unit. All you need to do is make a pile of these sticks with glue and then brush wood stain over them to polish the design. Now you have a cabinet for your succulents and cacti.
Tissue paper flowers
Bare walls can sometimes look dull and drab, so why not brighten them up with tissue paper? They add color to your otherwise plain walls and they certainly won’t wilt. It will be great fun to mix and match colors as you please, using tissue paper in multiple shades. Not only tissue paper flowers make for a wonderful DIY room decor, they are also perfect for party decoration!
Cork bulletin board
It is always useful to have a cork board in the bedroom. You can put everything that is dear and important to you: vacation photos, memos, to-do list, goal list, basically anything you can put there. However, it can be quite challenging to build a good cork board, but be patient, because it’s worth it! Find out how to make it on craft websites like sadieseasongoods.com.
Extra large quote poster
Everyone could use some inspiring quotes for their studies. In this project you make extra large wall art of the best quote(s) that appeal to you. You can even show off the most meaningful page of your dearest writer in a stylish way. Some sites offer ready-made designs, but if you’re digital design savvy, it’s also a good idea to create your own designs!
Framed vintage scarf
Remember that vintage scarf from your mother that you loved so much you never wore it? Turn it into a decorative piece by placing it in a frame and it can quickly be the piece de resistance of an otherwise plain room. A good artsy scarf choice is anything from Hermès or even something you bought at a flea market.
Another simple yet creative DIY room decorating idea is to create a geometric accent in your room interior. Only painter’s tape is needed to design geometric patterns. After that you can freely paint the shapes with your favorite shades. Wait for it to dry before removing the tape to reveal the masterpiece.
