Chances are when you turn on the television or pick up a magazine you are seeing ads and articles for do-it-yourself projects. You may look at those and think, “Wow, I am certainly crafty enough to try that” or you may think, “Hhmmm wonder if I can pick that up from the store and decorate my home with it?” No matter what kind of DIY'er you are, there are many things you can to do decorate your home in a quick and easy fashion that will give it your own personal flair.
Since we’re into the holiday season, we will share both holiday and non-holiday ideas here.
- Throw pillows and blankets on the furniture add a quick touch of cozy and whimsy to your living spaces. You can easily swap out holiday themed throw pillows and blankets for others that match the season -- cool, light colors for summer; deep, rich colors and designs for autumn and either holiday or winter and snow-themed accessories for the cooler months of the year.
- Get your craft on. Wander the aisles of your local craft store and you will likely be inspired to try some of the crafts they display. Your local craft store has knowledgeable staff who can tell you whether the project you’re looking at is for a beginner or an intermediate DIYer. You can pick up all of the items necessary for the project, take it home and dive right in. If you have children or other “crafty” family members or friends, why not make a day of it and make craft items that will add to the decor of the season.
- Take to the Internet and look on Pinterest for decorating ideas. From glitter-covered pine cones sprinkled with essential oils of your choice to handmade tree garland to crocheted or knitted or even hand-sewn decorations you can easily swap out a few items in your home and viola you change your decor from season to season!
