Our homes are really an extension of who and what we are as a person, a place where we can unleash our creativity and fill it with things that we truly love in life. In visiting our homes, people get to relax and also appreciate the things we enjoy, based on what they see.
But aside from making your home more beautiful for your visitors to love, it is also great to decorate your home with the pieces you enjoy – and that will surely make you happy!
Did you know you don’t have to spend a lot of money to make your home more beautiful inside and out?
You can actually upcycle a lot of things that might look like junk now, to create lovely pieces that would brighten up your home. Unleash your creative juices as you make any of these 45 DIY (do it yourself) projects that would make your home beautiful.
Before you throw something away, even those empty shampoo bottles and baby food containers, try to look at the item from a different perspective and see whether it can actually be converted to something else.
You’ll be surprised at the wealth of DIY projects you can create at home from pieces that you might think are already junk!
Make sure to clean these discarded pieces before using them in the DIY projects. You’ll need different items to create these projects, but it would be great if you have a hot glue-gun, heavy duty scissors, glue, strings and ropes, wires, markers, and nails in various sizes.
