There are times when you want to redecorate your home. It could be because you’ve moved, or you might just need a change. DIY home décor ideas are perfect in this situation, whether you’re on a budget or you are simply creative and enjoy using your hands to make something amazing.
The thing with DIY home décor is you might not know where to start or how to best accomplish what you want to do in your home. Well, we thought we’d help by giving you this list of 12 easy DIY home décor tips and ideas.
1. Paint or Wallpaper Décor
When we say paint or wallpaper, we mean more than simply painting or wallpapering your walls. If you want to change the color of your walls, by all means, paint away. But you can also transform your walls in other ways.
Stencil art is a great form of DIY home décor that is inexpensive and easy. Get small stencils to paint a mosaic or get a large stencil that will make it possible to paint a large design, such as a mandala. This stencil art can act as the centerpiece of your room’s décor, and it can be done in any room in your home.
When it comes to wallpaper, there are so many amazing pre-pasted wallpapers out there. You can buy something off the shelf, or you can get custom-designed wallpaper that will really capture your unique design style.
2. Create Your Own Wall Art Décor
Hanging art in your home doesn’t mean you have to go out and buy something expensive, or even something inexpensive. All you need is a canvas, some paint, and your imagination. Simple geometric lines and shapes, circles and polka dots, or anything else that draws the eye will create DIY wall art that looks beautiful and is truly yours.
3. Handmade Candle Décor
Candle-making is fun, and it leaves you with gorgeous candles you can use to decorate your home (and give as gifts). You can use paraffin, soy, or beeswax for your candles, and you can choose from a variety of decorative holders, such as colored jars or antique teacups.
4. Chalkboard Wall Décor
You can get chalkboard paint and use it to paint part of a wall or the entire thing. This will give you a blank canvas whenever you want it. You can use this chalkboard wall to write to-do lists and schedules, but you can also draw fun artwork on it, whether you want to create funny cartoons or inspirational drawings and sayings.
5. Build Your Own Mobiles
Gather up recyclable and/or natural materials and use them to create unique mobiles you can hang in your home. Use material that will catch the sun. Use pieces of wood, pinecones, and other natural objects to bring the natural world into any room in your home.
6. DIY Cushion Covers
If you feel the need to change out your accents, making your own cushion covers is a great way to do it. You can easily find inexpensive fabric and then all you need to do is cut and sew squares. And if you don’t have a sewing machine, these are easy to sew by hand.
7. Seasonal Home Decorations
Create areas of seasonal DIY home décor in your home. This may be changing up your mantle, doing a window display, or changing your wall décor. It gives you a great opportunity to switch out your colors and blend natural items with fabrics, candles, and other decorative elements.
8. Stencil Art Décor
We’ve talked about creating stencil art directly on your walls, but you can also create stencil art on wood, metal, and other materials that you can hang in your home. You can create designs, or you can do word art, creating funny or inspirational sayings that will brighten up your home. And if you feel confident in your painting abilities, you can create this art without the use of stencils.
