The popularity of DIY home décor is on the rise, and it?s easy to see why! It allows you to customize your space, and because it?s budget-friendly, you can update your living area as often as you like. Today we wanted to share some decorating tips and inspiration for easy home accents you can create yourself.
Let nature be your guide
The weather is warm, so head outside for some inspiration! Take some close-up photos of animals, trees or even street signs ? you can showcase them in a custom frame or transfer the images to paper and embellish everything from fabric to furniture.
Give your furniture a facelift
Don?t retire an old piece of furniture just yet! Some sanding, primer and paint will make it as good as new. You can even decoupage pretty papers to the fronts or insides of dresser drawers and try new knobs to add decorative character.
Revamp your tabletops
Add a custom touch to a simple end table. Place a piece of pretty scrapbook paper under the glass top, and you have created a new, designer look. Customize with a pattern that coordinates with your decor, or change the paper with the seasons!
Find a new use for an old frame
A simple coat of paint can instantly update an old mirror or frame and you can match it to your home decor. Paint the mat inside the frame with chalkboard paint to create a one-of-a-kind message board, or add cork to show off your photos or kids craft projects.
Create your own wall art
You could also print out your favorite quote or song lyrics, mount it on patterned paper, and put it inside an inexpensive frame!
These are just few ways you can use your paper crafting talents to spruce up your space! How have you used your craft projects to decorate your home?
