DIY Stencil Pillow
What do you think of when you hear DIY home decor?
If you think it means blood sweat and tears or crafty looking picture frames made out of Popsicle sticks, I'm here to change your mind. I have put together a collection of tutorials that give step by step instructions to make some really beautiful home decor. I think you will agree that many of these items do not look "DIY". You'll want to try these!
DIY Drum Pendant light
A very chic drum pendant light made from two embroidery hoops, sheet plexiglass and fabric.
DIY Gilded Branch
A really sophisticated look that really doesn't need a tutorial. Spray paint a branch!
How beautiful would this be as centerpieces at a wedding with a couple of lovebirds perched on it?
DIY Wall Decor
I love this idea and will definitely be trying this one. Wood letters are glued to canvas and spray painted. Think of the possibilities!
I will admit that this is not as easy as spraying a branch but with a little determination you could make this light.
You can't flip through a home decor magazine without seeing these lights and using some wood beads and a hanging flower planter you could make one for yourself!
DIY Concrete Bookend
Such an understated look!
There is not one thing I'm posting that I'm not planning on making- I can't wait to share
- my wheels are spinning!
Tassels made from a champagne cork and pages from a vintage textbook. So clever!
DIY Wine Bottle Chandelier
From the cork to the bottle- a wine bottle chandelier.
DIY Decorative Wall Panels
This is something that I've always wanted to do. We have a very high ceiling in our foyer and I know that I don't want to get up there and paint or paper something decorative on the wall. Wouldn't something like this be cool? I like the idea of not committing to one look for a long time and with these lightweight panels (foam insulation board) covered in fabric I could change it from time to time.
Are you convinced? Do you think you may try one of these?
