If you don’t have the cash to give your home a facelift, then you are like most homeowners right now. The good news is that you don’t need a huge remodeling budget in order to give your home a completely new look and feel. There are some crafting ideas that you can use to completely transform the look of your home. Most of these handmade home decorations are easy to make and you probably already have all of the materials you need!
They say that the first thing that people notice when they enter your home is the smell. Candles do a fantastic job of giving your home a warm, inviting scent, but they also make for great decorations! Talk about two birds one stone, right? You can make candles from scratch or of course buy them at the store and use great crafting ideas to spice them up. You can make printed candles using a printer and a hair dryer. You can also take some of the unused candles around the house to make used-up candles using just a few steps. You can use old teacups to use as foundation for your unique candles.
Who said wreaths were just for Christmas? Make a stylish wreath using wine corks and then painting them with nail polish. You can use a twig wreath where you are going to glue the wine corks, painted using different colors. Make sure the nail polish dries completely before gluing. Once the nail polish is dry, glue the wine corks on the wreath randomly in a circular pattern. Allow the glue to dry completely before hanging the wreath. You can use a ribbon to hang the wreath carefully on your door to give it that extra touch.
Using a stencil, you can make beautiful wall art that transforms the look of your home. You’ll only need a paint brush, painters tape, a paint sponge, and paint (preferably acrylic). You’ll also need to trace out the pattern using a pencil and then line the tracings with tape to ensure the paint doesn’t seep through the stenciled area. Make sure you place the stencil firmly using a painters tape before you begin painting. You can do some retouching once you remove the tape. You can use a chevron stencil to get the wall art within just a few minutes.
Make a vase or a soap dispenser using unused items around the home. You can use a light bulb to make the vase especially during the spring. Just turn it upside down, fill it with water and put your favorite flowers inside the old light bulb. You can even use buttons to make a beautiful bowl. You’ll need a hot glue gun to hold the buttons in place.
You can also make amazing table cloth decorations using cheap items or by painting your old table cloths. You can make a completely new tablecloth using fabric that is in line with the colors of the room you are decorating. If you are good at stitching and making standard dimensions then this project is ideal for you.
When decorating your home, choose materials which blend perfectly with the rest of your home. If you have a modern style ensure that the home made decorations utilize modern accessories. At the end of the day, you don’t want anything that takes away from the look of your home.
