Per your requests, our first DIY projects today will be starting in our living room area! These are all super fun to spruce up any room; and you know us everyday house wives are always keeping it budget friendly too!
Our first project might surprise you on just how cheap it really is! There are tons of links to different ideas to decorate with these materials (listed below). I chose to go with a starburst look so I could make a few and fill the wall. I love the way it turned out! It does become quite the tedious project but if you do just a little at a time, your wall will be filled up before you know it!
Living Room Wall Decor
• paper towel rolls/toilet paper rolls
• hot glue
• button – for the middle
Directions – Flatten your toilet paper roll or paper towel roll, I went with both because each were a different color so it gave them a neat contrast. Although, you could just spray paint it! Then cut into strips, maybe a 1/2 inch wide. Once you have enough to start glueing together, glue away into the shape of a flower. Don’t forget to add your button on there for the extra touch! 😉
Essential Oil Diffuser
• old glass bottle (I found mine at goodwill for a dollar)
• bamboo sticks
• rubbing alcohol
• essential oil – of your choice
• citrus peels – orange, grapefruit etc.
• fresh herb – rosemary, mint etc.
Directions – After acquiring your bottle, fill three parts water to one part rubbing alcohol. Don’t ask me why you are supposed to use the rubbing alcohol but every recipe I saw people used it. Next, put in your essential oil; maybe 10 to 20 drops. Then, put in your citrus peels as well as fresh herbs. Finally, put in your bamboo sticks to diffuse that fresh clean smell! What I love about this is, you aren’t putting harsh chemicals into your home. Plus they look nice, so why not?!
• old wine bottle
• filler (I used brown crinkle paper confetti)
• hot glue
Directions – First, enjoy your wine! Next, clean the bottle and let dry. Starting from the bottom, hot glue twine all the way up to desired point. Then, fill with your decor of choice (confetti, rocks). Finally, pop your cork back into the top and voilà!
Stay tuned in for next week! We will be following our DIY series right into the kitchen! I can’t wait to see everyone’s final projects! Happy Wednesday! ❤️
