I would suggest you design your living room by layering different textures of fabric. This is gonna add an extra oomph to your living room!

6. DIY a Chalkboard Grocery List

DIY a simple chalkboard grocery list to add some instant personalized decor to your home!

Most probably, we all have forgotten to buy something from our grocery list at least once in our life! As a result, you might be shelling out more as you might not get the discount of bulk buying. So, you can stop wasting money by keeping a tub of chalkboard paint!

And at the same time, it can help you to beautify your kitchen! For that, you can paint one of your cabinet doors with black chalkboard paint. You or your family members can write down things that need to be bought the next time you visit a grocery store.

To make it look prettier, you can buy a cheap picture frame and paint the inside with chalkboard paint. Most likely, it is going to be the fanciest grocery list one can ever have!

7. Colourful Switchplates are a Simple DIY Decor Idea for your Home

Adding some simple detail and colour to your old switch plates is a simple way to DIY your home decor!

Switchplates are one of those things to which most of us don’t pay attention. But this tiny decoration can make a large difference to your home.

What if you add some colours to the switch plates to give them a new look!

Unscrew a switch plate and then sand them lightly. After that, you can give a fresh coat of spray paint in the colour you like!

If you don’t have a spray of the colour of your choice, you can cut the pieces of scrapbook paper which fits the plates and stick them on.

8. Revamp your Bookshelf to add Simple Home Decor

Getting creative with your book shelf decor can add a classic warm look to your home utilizing what you already have on hand!

If your bookshelf is disorganized, your entire room can look messy! The simple foolproof way is decorating your bookshelf!

Arrange hardcover books in descending order. That means, from the tallest to short books on most of the shelves.

Let’s say, you want to keep a book series. To distinguish it from other books, you can keep tall books as bookends.

Also, add some decorative items like pottery, framed photos on one or two shelves. You can leave a space on some shelves so the eyes can have a place to rest!

9. Try golden plant pots as a DIY Decor Idea

Using tin cans is a frugal way to add to your home decor with a rustic farmhouse look!

Do you have an empty tin can at home?

You can spray a golden or silver paint over any tin can for a rustic and elegant look! Simply convert them into indoor planters. You can certainly get some fresh air!

10. Reuse Christmas Decor as Simple DIY Decor

Broken Christmas ornaments can make pretty mosaic tiles for anything like from a mirror to jewelry!

Turns out and colourful scraps of wrapping paper can be the perfect crafting material for you! You can use old wrapping paper to make collages or strings of garland.

If you have a metallic garland, you can keep it around for festive New Year’s decor. Or, you can reuse your Christmas decor by packing a festive gift for your loved ones with colourful tinsel.
