Bored in the house and in the house bored? That means it’s time to get off the couch and start engaging your crafty side. One fun way to get going to pair productivity with mood is by setting an ambience that makes you feel creative and inspired. So go ahead, feed the interior designer in you! Here are some easy DIY decor ideas that will spruce up your home in less than 30 mins!
1) Macrame Wall Hanging
Macramé is a type of textile made by knotting rather than weaving or knitting. This involves cotton macrame rope, scissors, measuring tape, a tree branch or something equivalent to that! With the help of tutorials, you can create patterns like spirals, triangles, feathers and so many more. Pretty home decor, and a new skill to boot!
2) Gallery Wall
Every time you look at a photograph of your favourite memories, you know it’s going to put a smile on your face. That’s why this DIY is extra special! Not only does it add a personal touch to your space but also serves as a collection of mementoes. All you need is to print out your photographs and hang them on a cord or a thick thread. You can even make patterns such as waves or branches with these cords, and make your bland wall come alive!
3) Washi Tape Wall
If you’re someone who loves colours and textures, then you’re about to exercise your creativity. Use washi tape that’s cut out in equal lengths to create diagonal line stripes on a plain-coloured wall to create an appealing textured look. You can paint between the lines to spunk up your bedroom and feel super ingenious and artsy.
4) Scented Candles
Nothing beats unwinding after a long day, like an ambient room with your favourite fragrance lingering in the air and a string of strobe lights. For this DIY stint, you will need wax, wicks, and essential oils because that’s the easiest way to make scented candles at home. Melt the wax and pour them into aesthetic containers.
Add a few drops of lavender, vanilla, citrus, strawberry, chocolate, or even apple cinnamon, and sit chilling with a whiff of that!
5) Hanging Glass Jars
Let’s face it – having indoor plants can bring dramatic goodness to your decor! Bring your nursery indoors and use glass jars to pot them in. Hang them up near your windows and add a green touch to your interiors! This one will get your hands dirty, but it promises to make use of old recycled glass containers.
Psst, you could also switch it up and use the hanging glass jars as candle holders too!
If it’s been a while since you had a crafternoon spent on space refurbishment, these ideas are perfect! They won’t take you longer than 30 minutes, and truly, what better way to spend a sunny summer afternoon than lounging in some PJs!
