If you’re like me and change your mind on what you like every five minutes, art hangers are a great way to decorate without fuss. Hang a few of these glitter covered hangers on your wall and swap and change your favourite pics to suit your mood or decor!
Though for some people doilies bring up memories of visiting Nanna’s dusty house, they are really fun to craft with. From lacy earrings to lacy bunting, they can bring some retro fun to your home (and ears). I’ve seen bowls made before from doilies but what I like the most about this DIY is the added pastel colour to the edges. Great for holding all your little bits and pieces, these would also make a great gift!
I’m not sure why I love this little chair so much, but I do. Maybe it’s the fact that it’s upcycling something in a way I would never have thought of myself? For whatever reason, it’s so much fun and would make a great kids chair.
p.s. Home Story is a German website, so the link to the DIY is translated through Google but the link to the website will point to the original German site. Just paste website into Google and you can have a look around!
I’ve quite often seen those DIY clock kits at Spotlight & Lincraft and wanted to try one but hadn’t had much inspiration as to what to turn it into! Well this is perfect and so easy to make too. Simply download the incredibly cute free cuckoo clock printable from HC, and then follow the directions to make your own faux clock.
Just like fashion, what’s popular in crafts always comes back around. Macrame was once huge in homewares - then it was incredibly daggy - now it’s back baby! Granted, it’s usually in it’s simplest form and in neutral colours (or sometimes with a bit of neon chucked in there), unlike the earthy orange, brown and moss greens of the 70’s. This fantastic curtain is great to separate a room or as decoration on your wall - just don’t combine it with wall to wall shag!
I’m a bit in love with this side table - especially those studs! like that this piece would work so well in so many different decors too. I know that where I live I could find a tree stump from friends with farms, but maybe check with your council before you start grabbing things off the side of the road!
When I last had my stall I had the pleasure of having a lady next to me who sold terrariums. All of them were so amazing that I just had to buy one. Then when I got home I immediately searched etsy for some little bits and pieces to add to my terrarium! Everyone loves it, and they make great presents for anyone really - young and old. They’re also good for black thumbs because it’s quite hard to kill succulents! You can get lots of supplies on etsy & ebay, and IKEA has some great jars to start your mini garden in. For added interest, try adding something cute or quirky like a little loved up couple, some pretty geodes , a magical unicorn or even some Easter Island heads!
Bring some quirkiness to your bookshelf with a ‘ceramic’ animal! Just grab your favourite plastic animal and follow the easy directions on FPG. I think this would be a cute addition to a baby’s room as decoration - you could have a whole menagerie to keep watch!
One day I will have a big, beautiful house with something I’ve always wanted… a foyer! I always get jealous when I see people with beautiful entrance rooms with big comfy chairs, hat stands, side tables with mirrors, and multiple hooks. An organiser’s dream. But until that day, I think I’ll need to make do with the wall next to my door… and maybe this awesome multi-coloured hook organiser! I love all the bright colours and it’s fantastic for all those bits and pieces you need to take with you before you leave the house.
For the same price of buying just one of these from Anthropologie, you can buy the items you need to make a few of these baskets at home! With Christmas coming up these would make a great gift filled with handmade bath bombs or biscuits. So cute!
I adore these giant peonies. Unlike the traditional paper pompoms, these ones take a little bit more time and effort to create but wouldn’t you agree they’re worth it?!
I’ve always loved those Foo Dog statues that I see in all those magazines, but the real ones are so expensive. Unfortunately until I can afford to get the real thing, I’m going to have to make do with a faux version, and I love this one - especially the colour! Though I might have to go with a cat figure instead of a dog!
This is such a beautiful way to display family photos, as soon as I saw it I went onto eBay and bought photo transfer paper! Though the directions are in German it’s pretty straight forward - print your pics onto transfer paper, iron onto fabric, pop in the hoop and embroider away!
If you have a ton of photos that you’d like to display but want to do something a little more interesting than sticking them on your wall, may I suggest you try this awesome piece of art?! This would also be a really sweet gift to give to a friend - a great way to use those Instagram photos!
This is such a pretty way to gift some handmade jewelry or to keep your own jewelry safe. I think that the cutest part is the leather bow on top of the box - even if you don’t make the box, the leather bow would be great to add to a present!
