Globetrotter In The House
Bring to life your grandma’s suitcase by reusing it in a modern setting of your own home. A retro coffee table is an absolute must-have in your living room. Before you get going though, make sure you have the right tools. The fastest and the simplest way to get what you need is to look for the required tools online, because it is both the fastest and the simplest way. Besides tools, you will need an old suitcase; place it upside down and mark where the top plates should sit. Drill the holes which are necessary, and then screw the top plates at the bottom of the suitcase. Attach table legs to them and voila – your vintage coffee table is done.
Donut Worry, Be Happy
If you are a donut lover, this will be a real treat for you. You can make an incredible donut-shaped pillow, all by yourself. Cut out two large circles of beige plush fabric, and make a hole in the middle by cutting out another smaller circle. Use a needle and thread to sew first the outer edges, and then the inner edges of the pillow. When this is done, stuff it with pillow stuffing. Later on, cut out pink plush which will represent glaze and glue it to the pillow. Use small pieces of colorful fabrics to represent sprinkles, and glue them to the glaze. It will definitely make your mouth water every time you see it.
Phenomenal Pom Pom
These fluffy balls made of yarn are necessary if you want to take your home decoration to the next level. Wrap the yarn around your fingers hundred times and slip the bundle off your fingers. Use a piece of yarn to tie it around the center of the bundle, and cut through the loops of yarn. In this way, you will get a messy pom pom, so you should trim it until you are happy with it. You can then sew them to your pillows, blankets, tablecloths and even curtains, which will certainly enhance your interior. Not to mention that your kids will love them.
Your dull flowerpots will become history because of this simple DIY project. You will need white paint, black paint, and a paintbrush. Apply one coat of white paint to your flowerpots and let it dry. Later on, use black paint to draw funny faces on them. Even your children can help you out with this project. It is particularly eye-catching because plants that are growing in your flowerpots will represent hair that perfectly matches the faces painted on them.
Vintage Photo Frame
All those empty jars forgotten in your kitchen cupboard will find their way out in this DIY project. Place your favorite photographs in those jars and you will get effective and innovative picture frames, which will look vintage at the same time. Add some dry flowers to them for the ultimate vintage look.
As you can see, home decoration can be a piece of cake, even though you are not especially skillful. All you need is free time, a small amount of money, and imagination. Simple DIY projects will definitely make your home a better place to live in.
