Renovating a home can be very expensive and time consuming. However, a total renovation is not always necessary. Sometimes, a few highlight decorations can completely redefine a room’s look. The downside is that decorations can also be quite expensive, especially if you are looking for specific decor elements. Still, with a little creativity and minimum effort, you can make your own decorations. DIY projects are often the home decorating ideas on a budget. Today, we will give you just a few simple ideas for DIY decorations, which we hope will inspire you to give your home a new look. You will be surprised to see that even the best interior design websites acknowledge the popularity of the DIY trend.
Decorative twine bottles
Twine is an element found in many rustic or shabby chic DIY decorations. This element is both cheap and easy to work with. The easiest way in which you can use it is to decorate some bottles. These are home decorating ideas on a budget that can make your home look unique yet stylish, and you should know by now that you don’t need to follow a trend or popular decorating theme in order to achieve good results. You don’t need to buy sophisticated bottles, but you should avoid using big bottles. The small olive or vinegar bottles are great for this project. Start by taking the labels off the bottles. If you are having a hard time doing this, simply submerge the bottles in hot water and allow them to soak for a couple of hours. After this, the labels should come right off. Next, you need to dry the bottles and cover them with some adhesive. If your twine is very thin, you can use mod podge as your basic adhesive. However, if you are using thick twine, you might want to use more powerful glue. After covering the bottle in adhesive, simply start wrapping the twine around it. Allow it to dry overnight and the next day, you can use some fabric scarps or seashells in order to decorate it.
DIY pillow covers
One of the best home decorating ideas on a budget is to use existing elements as decorations. If you do some research on the best interior design websites, you will notice that small, colorful pillows, are a great way to bring some joy into a boring room. Furthermore, you don’t have to spend a lot of money as you can make your own pillow covers by recycling fabric scraps. Some of the pillow cover models featured above are quite easy to replicate and they should not take you more than an hour. However, some models are not exactly simple DIY decorations, as they can be more time consuming, not because of complicated sewing techniques but due to the fact that they require a lot of stitches. We advise you to start with simple models such as the colorful birds model or the yellow, round shapes. Don’t struggle to replicate these models perfectly. Instead, use whatever scraps you have at hand and let your creativity run wild.
