Heya guys! How are you today?
So recently I have been feeling really creative and I can’t stop watching various DIY videos on youtube! One channel I recently discovered is Microscope Beauty and she does these amazingly addictive ‘Plan with me’ videos where she plans and decorates her diary for the week. She uses all the awesome stickers and really transforms the pages. It’s hard to describe but they are just so interesting to watch – you should definitely check them out!
Anyway a combination of that and DIY videos and pinterest has just got my creative juices flowing haha. I just want to decorate my room and organise everything really prettily haha. But… since I’m not at uni I can’t decorate my new room just yet, so I thought I would put together a collection of some of my favourite DIY room decor that are super affordable and easy to do! Lets pimp my imaginary room!!!
Washi tape is absolutely amazing, I’ve seen it used to decorate so many things from laptops to lamps. One of my fav ways to use it is as a replacement for picture frames. If you don’t want to splurge on a big frame and your picture is fairly flat then washi tape is a great cheap alternative. You can get numerous colours and tapes on ebay or easy for only a few pounds!
I love the idea of surrounding ugly plug sockets with a colourful pattern. Simply print off your chosen pattern (or draw one) and cut it to fit the plug socket (making sure it doesn’t cover the actual socket). You can then stick it down with some double sided sticky tape!
Water Colour Cushions
These DIY watercolour cushions are the perfect way to add some subtle colour to any room. They look so air and elegant! You can find out how to make these here with ellaclaireinspired
This is another one of my favourite DIY ideas where you basically just paint a pretty pattern on a pebble! I think you go even further with this and for instance paint slates for drinks/place mats – the possibilities are endless. It’s also totally easy to find great pattern inspiration on the likes of pinterest and if you aren’t good at art you could simply print off a stencil!
Chose a shape, get some colourful paper (or even go minimal and use one colour like black) and chop it into lots of your chosen shapes. Then you can blue tack up on your wall or canvas in an arranged pattern or mosaic style or even totally random. This can be amazingly effective and its such a simple idea too!
The Coolest Tea Light Ever!!
This is the coolest upcycling idea that I have seen in a long time and it is so so easy to do. Just cut off the bottom of a can (carefully aha) and poke holes around the letters using a needle – like in this Coke you can see below. Then you can use it as an awesome tea light! Don’t forget you can experiment with this by poking holes in different patterns such as circles!
Which of these would you want to try? Comment and tell me – I would love to hear!
