DIY decorating is a great and inexpensive way to decorate your home yourself. Home made home decor is more than just an inexpensive way to decorate your home. DIY home decor is an opportunity to make things just the way you want them and a chance to feel true pride in the way your home looks because it came directly from you. Not to mention the chance to pull together truly unique decorative ideas for your home decor.
Here are some great homemade decor ideas for you to try:
It’s a huge trend right now to have signage in your home, displaying favorite phrases. You can use song lyrics, bible quotations, or anything you wish. All you need is some wood (new or discarded), sand paper, and paint. If you prefer not to get your hands dirty, you can also make signage with your computer. Simply print out what you want to display on high-quality paper and frame it.
Plants are a great way to decorate your home and make it feel alive and fresh. Decorate your space with your own arrangements of potted plants, fresh cut flowers, or succulents. Display them in cute containers, from vases to jars to teapots. Anything you can use as a planter can be a really unique decor piece. Note: If you have animals be careful about which plants you use, even if they’re artificial. Animals sometimes like to eat the plants or the artificial soil or planting materials.
A cute personal touch is to use family photos in your different decor motifs. For example, instead of just a regular clock, you can use photos of family members in the place of numbers. Or you can paint or applique a tree on the wall and use it to display your own family tree.
Bring nature indoors to use as unique home decor items. Anything from branches to pine cones, leaves and even just sticks from the yard can be potential décor. You could fill up a large vase with branches, spray paint glitter onto pine cones and place them in a bowl, or use sticks to build an easel or frame for photos. For example, use mod podge to decoupage leaves onto a shelf, photo box, or another display item to add interest. Bringing pieces of nature indoors is a really great way to give a unique and impressive shabby-chic look to your home décor.
Start collecting different shape and sized glass containers from flea markets, thrift stores, and yard sales. You can use them for a huge variety of DIY projects. Try glass paint to give them some color. Paint the inside with metallic paint to give your décor some shiny appeal. A really chic décor look is to group a bunch of different sized containers and put candles in them.
All of these are very simple and inexpensive ideas to make your own home décor. Most of them take very little time and effort for a big payoff. Use these ideas to find your inner craft woman and give your home a more personal decorative touch.
