DIY HOME DECOR ON A BUDGET

I love sharing my DIY home decor projects with you but the last one (this DIY cardboard cornice) got a little out of hand. It was genuinely SO SIMPLE and really took less than an hour, but HOLY MOLY the tutorial was long and it took hours to explain how each little step came together. So in the spirit of saving time, I’m here today with a quick and easy DIY you can master in 3 steps or less to achieve a look that’s super high-end. Like this:

DIY JUTE ROPE VASE

I made this one years ago – long before I was ever blogging. So I don’t have a tutorial for it, but here’s an excellent one (and probably where I got the idea)! I actually used a vase I’d gotten from a floral delivery.

DIY PAINTED CHINOISERIE CERAMIC OBJECT

The Eiffel Tower is technically not a vase, but I did find it in the candle section at the Dollar Store. It was plain white and a little tacky, but I loved the idea of painting it to look chinoiserie. It was easy and only took a few minutes. Just simple brush strokes and a high gloss lacquer completed this project.

I hope this DIY tutorial was a lot easier to follow. These are genuinely simple projects that require so little money. I used paint I’d already had on-hand, so my total investment for all of these was under $10! Even TJ Maxx can’t compete with that!
