DIY projects are all the rage and if your of the creative spirit, then DIY projects are obviously a great outlet for you! Not only are they inexpensive, but doing home decor projects yourself adds an element of personal flair that can’t be bought on store shelves. Check out these three nifty DIY ideas!
1.) Curated children’s artwork
Isn’t it precious when little Johnny brings home all those drawings from pre-school? As parents, we love them so much, but have a hard time finding space for the paper as it piles up. Rather than pile it up, PLAY IT UP! Show off your kids creativity by using a common color scheme and a grid of frames. Scan sketches and drawings, and then use a digital graphics program (like Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop) to add color backgrounds and swap some of the dark lines for white. You can create a similar effect with colored construction paper and pens in white and dark ink.
2. Paint a geometric pattern
Repainting a room? Be inventive with a geometric paint pattern that’s bolder than wallpaper. With one template, you can often create four dramatically different looks. It gives those boring walls just the flair that is needed to bring an added element of interest into the room.
3. Wallpaper the stairs (or ceiling)
Today’s stylish designs look great in unexpected places. If you don’t want to get groovy with the patterns on your walls, then save the fun for unexpected places such as your stairs or the ceiling! If you want to get the job done fast, think about using decorative shelf liner from a store like TJ MAXX. It’s self adhesive so you won’t have to hassle with glue!
