There are so many crafty ways to decorate your home by embellishing what you already have.
Do you have a plain shelf sitting around?
Add some uniqueness to it with vintage yard sticks, and you have a work of art to hang on your wall.
Is there some leftover wallpaper in a drawer?
Decoupage a piece of furniture and completely transform it. Hanging a decoupaged drawer above it really gives this project true pizzazz.
I know I have some old knobs in the closet.
Get them out, look in the garage for some wire, and use your creations to showcase favorite photos.
I think it would be fun to print out favorite quotes and showcase those as well.
You can turn your jewelry into art too! All you need are frames and/or a shelf.
You can hang the jewelry in the frame's open space. Or you can add some cork board inside to hang your pretties.
Or if you don't have cork board, look around your home for something to cut to size, and then cover it in fabric to put inside the frame. It would help if you had some padding too, like quilt batting, etc.
Do you like to collect sea shells?
Dig them out and place them in some sort of clear glass container, like this old aquarium, where you can see and enjoy them every day.
Got an old empty window frame out in the garage?
Bring it in and use it to show off botanical prints or whatever your heart desires.
Adding a clock is the icing on the cake. Setting up a vintage vignette underneath completes the look.
All you need for this craft are pillows and costume jewelry. Just look how the jewelry gave that pillow instant glam!
Use old clock faces hung by ribbon to create framed art.
If you don't have old clock faces, print out some vintage clip art clock faces from the internet and print on thick card stock.
Have you created something uniquely yours with bits and bobs lately?
