Pinterest Home Decor Crafts Examples
Painting on fabric for pillows is easy: Draw a design in chalk, then fill in shapes with fabric paint (or acrylic paint mixed with fabric painting medium) using a slightly dry brush and quick strokes to allow the canvas to show through. Painting a different design on each side makes the pillows conveniently reversible.
Resurrect an old beaded-board chest with a fresh coat of aqua paint to tie into the cottage-style color scheme of the bedroom and a lively fabric lining. Fold under the edges of a piece of fabric cut to fit and staple it to the lid. Do the same for each of the sides and the bottom of the chest’s interior.
Inexpensive and readily available online, unfinished wood candlesticks allow you to bring colors from your fabrics or wallpaper to your accessories. Stick with similar colors such as blues and lavenders for a more subtle display, or make a statement by using jewel tones in the grouping. Using a sponge brush, apply the stain over the candlestick. Wipe off the excess with a clean rag. For more intricately carved areas use a flat artist’s brush.
Rub It On Wall Art
Rub-ons applied to glass quickly update basic picture frames. Pair the designs with framed pieces of pretty patterned paper for a low-cost gallery.
Magnetic Memo Board and Tacks
A cookie sheet or jelly roll pan, minus the dough, doubles as a magnetic message holder. Measure your pan and cut scrapbook paper or wallpaper to fit. Use a corner rounder to round each corner of the paper. Secure the paper to the pan using double-stick tape. Back flat florist’s stones with colorful images, and glue on magnets to hold your messages in place.
Anna Maria Horner used her fabric to cover these old Fed Ex boxes and turn them into modern magazine holders. To replicate the look, cut the flaps off one end of the box. Cut off one corner of the box at an angle as shown in the photo. Wrap and fold the fabric around the box and secure with fabrics glue.
Turn ordinary items into coffee-table decor. Easy to switch when your room changes, these foam or wooden balls are wrapped with ribbon scraps, old tape measures, and leftover scrapbooking supplies. Place them in a pretty bowl for display.
Pretty Jewelry Holder
Transform a photo frame into a stylish home for your earrings. Remove the frame’s back panel and decoupage the front of the frame with patterned papers. Staple wire mesh to the back over the opening. After embellishing, hang the frame on the wall or prop it on an easel.
