But, most of the time, these amazing and sleek decorations would require you to shell out more money than what you have expected.

Apparently, the budget is the number one factor why homeowners would often limit their creative sides when it comes to decorating and fixing their homes. Fortunately, there are now more inexpensive ways and ideas that you could do to create a comelier and cozier ambiance inside and outside your house.

And if you are thinking of giving your home a new look and ambiance, here are some of the simplest and easiest DIY projects for home decoration:

1. Rustic Vases and Candle Holders

Rustic Vases and Candle Holders

Vases and candle holders provide great accents to the interiors of your house. But, buying brand new ones can be really expensive. So, instead of purchasing, you could actually re-decorate your old vases and candle holders! And if you are looking forward to a much more rustic-looking ambiance, this is perfect for you.

All you need to do is to collect pieces of tiny branches that will fit the exteriors of your vases. You will also need a glue gun to do this project. As much as possible, choose tree branches that are uneven. And once you’ve gathered the materials, you can then glue each twig and branch on the vase and let it dry.

2. Mason Jar Bathroom Organizer

Your bathroom is one of the spaces in your house where you can get more comfortable. Hence, it is only fitting that this space should be more organized and cozier. And if you are looking for a creative yet budget-friendly organizer for your toiletries, you can actually take advantage of mason jars.2. Mason Jar Bathroom Organizer

Apparently, mason jars have become more popular in the recent times. And this is because you can do a lot with mason jars, especially when designing your home. As for your bathroom organization, you can place 3 to 5 mason jars on your bathroom to organize your toiletries.

Place a label on each mason jar. You can choose to print various fonts or you can write them on your own. Labels like Q-tips, Toothbrush, Hair Clips, and Floss will do just fine. Once you’re done with labeling the mason jars, place your toiletries on the corresponding labels.

3. Popsicle Sticks Wall Décor

If you feel like that there’s something missing on your wall, you may want to utilize a few popsicle sticks. These sticks would only cost a few cents and dollars. And all you need to do is to stack them up according to your preferred shapes and sizes.

The most apparent design that most homeowners and DIY project enthusiasts do today is the geometric shapes out of popsicle sticks. Once you have stacked the popsicle sticks, glue them together but make sure that you use a strong glue. Better yet, use a glue gun. Let them dry for a few hours.

It is also up to you whether you want it painted or not. If you want a more rustic-looking piece, then you may simply finish it with transparent coatings. As for people who want a more vibrant finish, choose to paint them with bright colors.

Now, you can choose to use drills to place or hang the outcome on the wall. You could also use strong sealants, especially if your output is lightweight and small. Also, you can choose to place the stacked popsicle sticks on tables and lamp sides in replacement for vases.

4. Candle and Fragrance Trays

If you have old kitchen trays, then this will work for you. But if in case that you don’t have one, you can always check for different inexpensive trays on the market. Also, if you are a fan of scented candles and dried fragrances, you will love this DIY project!

Candle and Fragrance Trays

All you need to do it to have a jar of potpourri, different scented candles, and a tray. It is recommended that you choose a potpourri that has a great fragrance and color for its appearance. Also, try to complement the colors of the scented candle and potpourri. So, basically, it’s going to be a mix and match type. Even so, it is largely a personal preference.

Now, once you have acquired all of the materials, place all the potpourri on the tray. Scatter them as they fill the whole tray. If you want to blend in some colors, you can choose to place different kinds of potpourri. Just make sure that the scents will complement with each other. Consequently, place two to three scented candles (or depending on the size and area of the chosen tray) on the tray.

You can then place your new candle and fragrance tray on your living room. This will add accent to the interiors of your home. Also, it can freshen up the fragrance of your house.

5. Rugged Chairs From Old Tires

If you have old tires in your storage room or garage, you can actually turn them into great-looking rugged chairs. Apparently, most homeowners would place these on their backyards and gardens. But, it is up to you whether you want it indoor or outdoor.

All you need to is to have ropes. The sizes would depend on your preferences but this will not largely affect the overall appearance. Before proceeding, ensure the tires are clean and empty. And then – using a glue gun, cover the tires with the rope. Accordingly, make sure that all parts are covered.
