The first DIY home decor project you can take up is creating these trendy glass vases from recycled bottles. It doesn't take much to create one, you just need unused glass bottles, fresh flowers like roses or chrysanthemums and some arts and crafts materials – white paint, gold glitter, anything will do. Once you've gathered these essentials, the next step is to decorate the vases to make them attractive.
A can of metallic gold spray can do wonders for DIY decor projects. Try using it to refresh the look of your interior. Pick the items or furniture pieces you'd planned to upgrade with the classic colour and take these to a well-ventilated area. Don't forget to clean all surfaces thoroughly before spraying them. Wait until they're completely dry before bringing them in. Pro tip: cover any areas you don't want to spray with painter's tape to achieve a neat result.
Spray paint can really go a long way when you're on a budget. Use it to posh up anything solid to use as bookends: rocks, wood logs, even bricks! It costs almost nothing but looks as fancy as those agate stone bookends on the market. Spray painted rocks would make a lovely DIY gift idea too, just make sure the colour suits well with the one you're making the present for.
Bless those who always keep their popsicle sticks. But if you're not one of these people, or you just don't really like popsicles, you can still get them in the nearest craft store to build 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 stack of these sticks with glue and then brush wood stain over it to polish the design. Now you have a shelving unit for your succulents and cactuses.
Tissue Paper Flowers
Naked walls can sometimes look dull and drab, so why not spruce them up with tissue paper flowers? They add colours to your otherwise plain walls and they definitely don't wither. It will be really fun to mix and match colours however you like using tissue papers in multiple shades. Not only tissue paper flowers make for beautiful DIY room decor, they are also perfect for party decoration!
Bulletin Cork Board
It's always useful to have cork board in the bedroom. You can put anything dear and important to you: vacation photographs, memos, to-do list, goal list, basically anything you can set up there. It may be quite challenging to build a good cork board, though, but bear with it because it's worth it! Find out how to make it at craft websites like sadieseasongoods.com.
Oversized Quote Poster
Anyone could use some inspirational quotes for their study. In this project, you'll make oversized wall art out of the best quote(s) that speak to you. You can even show off the most meaningful page from your dearest writer in a stylish way. Some sites offer ready-to-print designs but if you're digital design-savvy, making your own is also a good idea!
Framed Vintage Scarf
Remember that vintage scarf from your mother that you hold so dear you never wore it? Turn it into a decorative piece by putting it in a frame and it can quickly be the piece de resistance of an otherwise plain room. A good artsy scarf pick would be anything from Hermès or even something you picked up at a flea market.
Another easy yet creative DIY room décor idea is to create a geometric accent in your room interior. It only requires painters' tape to design geometric patterns. After that, you can freely paint the shapes with your favourite shades. Wait until it's dry before removing the tape to unveil the masterpiece.
