Upholster Something Unusual
Upholstery doesn't have to be reserved for your sofa. If you're looking to jazz up your space, consider adding fabric to the framing of a mirror. It's an affordable way to incorporate your favorite pattern or hue as an accent. You can also transform photo albums, damaged books, and storage bins into decorative items with the help of a glue gun and a trip to the fabric store.
Create a DIY Hanging Garden
Looking to utilize your green thumb? Give your plant a home with a personal touch and go the DIY route. Simply drill holes in the side of your favorite ceramic pot, attach strings, and voila! Or, repurpose a towel hanger and attach air plants to it instead. If desired, spray paint it copper, gold, or your favorite color for extra flair.
Repurpose Picture Frames
Picture frames don't have to be reserved for family photos. Instead, press decorative items against the glass for a fun and creative look. Are you a nature lover? A collage of leaves and flower petals can romance a rustic, wooden frame. Or, consider using a handwritten poem or favorite piece of writing for daily inspiration. If you want to still incorporate precious moments captured on camera, simply mix things up by organizing a collage of Polaroid photos against the glass.
