We all want a beautiful home that shows off our personalities. We want a space that we enjoy spending time in and one that our guests feel at ease in. The problem is so many home décor ideas can end up costing a fortune and they don’t exactly last that long.
It’s time to start making your own decorations. You’ll find they stand out, look amazing, and use your exact colours and preferences for your personality. Not sure where to start? Here are six beautiful ways to decorate your home.
Bring the Outdoors Inside Your Home
Throughout the autumn, you want to bring the outdoors inside your home. Create a rustic look through the use of wood, felled tree stumps and more. You’ll be surprised at the items you already have outside your home to use, and it’s very easy to get hold of other items.
Grab some wooden pallets and sand them down to create shelves and bedside tables. Not only do you have a quick rustic look, but you have something practical and easy to use. If you want to keep the outdoors look, make sure you just sand and varnish the pallets; keeping the natural wood colour.
You can also create a wooden headboard from a slab of wood and add some cut tree rings for decoration. Don’t forget about the wooden frames for all your photos and posters. Then add the final touches with some leaves, fruit, and pine cones.
Switch Your Bed for a Hammock
How about living the bohemian lifestyle? It’s time to bring the Bahamas to your home and you can do that by getting rid of your bed. Where would you sleep? A hammock of course?
You can make your own hammock with strong netting and rope. Add a few blankets, throws, and cushions and you have the perfect space to lie. Fit the throws in with the colour scheme in your home. If you really want to bring the feeling of summer and the beach, opt for lighter shades, such as whites, yellows, and oranges.
If you’re not sure about getting rid of the bed, use your hammock for sitting and relaxing. Have a bookshelf nearby, so you can enjoy something to read while you escape from the world.
Go Minimalist with a Black Shelf
Keep your DIY simple. You can still create a beautiful and stylish look without going over the top. In this case, opt for a basic black shelf and you’ll do wonders for your room.
One of the best things about shelving is you can use various materials. Wooden shelves will help to add a vintage look, while plastic and vinyl helps to add to the modern style. Metal shelves can create a futuristic appearance within the home.
Putting up the shelf will also be part of the DIY. If you want the outdoor or vintage look, use rope for hanging the shelf. You’ll just have to watch on the amount you put on. When you want a modern look, opt for invisible brackets within the material.
Metal Wall Grid – Add a Metal Photo Frame to Your Desk
While a cork notice board can be a great way to add quick photos and notes, there’s something traditional and not as fun about it. You could add a whiteboard and some magnets, but what about creating a space that you can customise fully on a daily basis?
A metal rack style photo frame/board is the perfect option for beautiful home décor. You can move it around the house with ease and add all types of decorations. Use clothes pegs or bull clips to put photos up quickly and add seasonal decorations through the metal holes.
You can even go one step further with this. Use the similar metal frame design for your lamp and light shades around your home.
Create Your Own Candle Holders
Are you fed up of note finding the perfect candle holders for your home décor? It’s time to make your own. You’ll be surprised at how easy it is.
All you will need is mason jars to start. You can then add beads, lace, and ribbons to create something that works for your exact needs. It’s possible to create a range of candle holder styles, so you can switch them around for the different seasons. Create some with snowflakes and silver ribbon for the winter, while using beads, stones, and white lace for the summer months.
You can add some stones and marbles inside the jars if you’d like. This will allow you to put small tea tree lights at the top to light and place much easier.
Make Your Own Burlap Vases
Vases with flowers are quick ways to add the outdoors and beautiful decoration to your home. It’s time to create your own, cutting down the costs and bringing the exact décor you want into your home. Burlap vases are an excellent way to bring the outdoors into your home without hassle.
Get a few small milk or pop bottles. Always choose glass for the best results. Wrap the main parts of the glasses with burlap, leaving just the neck clear. Secure the burlap in place with a little lace and some string around the middle. You can then change the décor effortlessly on a regular basis.
Now all you need is to add your flowers and find a home for you new decorations.
