Let’s Begin with Some DIY Home Decor
Do you have a growing pile of old toilet rolls, tins, cartons, mason jars, plastic bags, and clothes lying around in your house? Start by rounding up all these scraps cluttering your home.
One of the ideal eco-friendly and budget-friendly things you could do is to upcycle these scraps and give them new life by turning them into DIY home decor – the possibilities are only as limited as your creativity and the availability of scraps taking up space in your house.
So, how can you turn old scraps into living room decor?
Metal tins, toilet rolls, bulbs, and cardboard boxes can all be easily refurbished into organizers of various sizes. With a little glue and twine, you can turn old boxes into beautiful baskets, and with just a nail and a hammer, you can turn your old metal tins into enchanting little lanterns.
You can also turn your old plastic bags and clothes to make twine that in turn can be used to make handmade rugs! There’s a lot of tutorials online to show you how.
And if you’re looking for a fun craft project to do with the kids, why not have a simple rock-painting session and turn those pretty pebbles into a table decor piece?
One great way to personalize and add character to the empty walls and table-tops in your living room is to use frames. And you can frame pretty much anything you love!
From vintage posters and motivating quotes to your most cherished memories as a family, you can either create a photo or art gallery for your living room walls, place a few table photo frames, or simply add a splash of color to the ambiance with a colorful canvas art piece.
