When you’re decorating the home, you’ve got to consider all of the small details. That’s what makes the place truly your own. All of the wall decorations and ornaments around the home give you an opportunity to inject a bit of your own personal style into the home. If you want to make your home even more unique, you should consider making your own decorations instead of buying them in. It’ll save you a lot of money with your decorating as well which is always a bonus if you’ve spent a lot already. There are plenty of great craft projects that you can do around the home, these are some of the best ones.
Putting flowers around the home is a great way to brighten the place up, and you’ll need a vase to put them in. You can buy plenty of vases with interesting designs but the price of them is pretty high for what they are. The thing is, you don’t need to spend a load of money on a vase to make it look great, you can just make your own with a basic glass vase and a piece of old rope. All you need to do is take a glue gun and stick the end of the rope to the bottom of the vase, then wind it around, gluing it as you go. The effect is great and it costs next to nothing to make.
Milk Bottle Planters
Hanging planters are another great way of displaying a bit of greenery around the home and you can make some great ones out of old milk bottles. All you need to do is cut the bottle in half and then you can decorate it with markers or paint before adding a string for it to hang from. It’s a great way to make a cheap planter and stop plastic waste at the same time.
You can get some great rustic looking wooden signs from antique shops that look great around the home, but they’re very expensive. Luckily, you can easily make your own if you pick up some reclaimed wood and print out some designs on vinyl to stick on them. You’ll need a vinyl cutting machine to cut out the silhouettes for you but apart from that, the materials will be cheap. Visit www.vinylcuttingmachineguide.com for more information on choosing a cutting machine because you’ll need one that can cut out more complex designs. When you’re drawing up designs, try to keep them as simple as you can so they’re easier to apply.
Patterned Drawers and Closets
If you’ve got old closets and drawers that need a bit of a refresh, you could consider repainting them. But if you want an easier way to make them look great, you can use wallpaper instead. Just get some nice patterned wallpaper and some paste and apply it as you would on the walls.
These are all great ways that you can use craft projects to brighten up your home without spending loads of money.
