As you live the ‘tiny way’, your little house becomes the core of your heart. It matters a lot to maintain your small space properly and showcase in every way possible how much your “mini-home” means to you.
Do you have an artistic side which you want to put into action to make your small home more special? All you need is some craft material, reusable old stuff from your basement and loads of love and creativity. Implementing some DIY methods will create a stronger bond between you and your tiny home.
Doing such a creative task with your partner can ignite some good romantic moments too. If you have kids too, making some inventive stuff together will become a memorable time and your toddlers will learn some new things.
Take a look at some easy breezy DIY ways of improving your tiny home. You can make a variety of decorating items in a matter of a few hours.
1. Create a bright setting with some Teacup candles
We possess many old teacups which we hardly use. You can use these teacups by melting some wax in them and can even use scented wax for scented candles. You can use vintage or quirky cup designs as per the décor of your home. Place these “teacup candles” in your living room or bedrooms or have a nice candle light dinner once in a while. But be cautious of the risk of fire while using them inside your home.
2. Easy to hang Photo clipboards for your walls
You may have few clipboards lying with or your kids. Use these writing pads and clipboards to clip your favorite images, magazine issues, and newspaper clippings.
It is an antique idea and quite convenient to make and use. Using a nail hang it evenly on the wall and you can decorate it with paint, stickers and craft papers.
3. Bring out the sculptor in you
Using clay and POP, you can make some small statues and figures. Clay modeling is an interesting task to do with a lot of fun elements, especially for your munchkins. Make some cute faux birds or animals or some pots. Paint them with shiny paints and add some glitters and stickers too. Tada! In a few hours, you have some self-made clay figures ready.
4. The easiest shelf to make on your own
Whether a square or a hexagon shaped shelf, it one of the easiest and prettiest pieces of furniture you can make. Whenever you indulge in a sweet delight like an ice cream candy or a Popsicle, collect those wooden sticks that come along. These wooden sticks can be joined together to make a shelf. Paint this shelf with some shiny brown color and keep some decorative things on it.
5. Cute circular corkboards
Cork boards are easily available but the same dull design is not what you always like. Cut cork boards in medium sized circles and hang them above your work desk or kitchen. Paint their bordering surface with some bright colors to suit the room settings of your tiny home. It is perfect for putting up to-do lists, reminder notes or cute messages for your partner.
6. Some fun with Shells and Driftwoods
Many times we go to the beach for a nice sunbath while traveling. If you love to collect those small shells and driftwoods from the beach, here is another nice artwork you can create. Using some brown ropes tie the small driftwoods together to a longer piece of driftwood. You can use shells and small feathers too for adding more spice to it. Paint the driftwoods with nice patterns and colors. When you complete it hang it on the wall inside your living room and enjoy the nature-inspired look.
7. Add some greens to your surrounding
Bring to your tiny space some small air plants to add a tint of freshness. Paint the small clay pots with acrylic paints. You can use geometric patterns or petite polka dots for designing the pots. Relish the company of these little plants on your study table, kitchen table or the side table in the living area of your tiny home.
8. Brighten your life with decorative floral lights
We all love to decorate our rooms with a series of lights especially if you have some festivals like Christmas ringing soon. All you need are some colorful cupcake liners and a string of Christmas tree lights. Cut the cupcake liners into the shape of flowers and leaves with a scissor and make a small hole in the middle of each flower for the small bulb. Stick them to the back of the light with glue or tape.
9. Colorful Floor Cushion
If you are well versed in the art of stitching another cool tip is to make some floor cushions for your home. Most of you have old clothes or fabrics with different patterns and colors. Cut different strips of colorful fabric and sew them with two large circular fabrics. Fill them up with pillow filling and a nice floor cushion is ready for your comfort.
10. Some Leafy art
Another way to adorn your wall is this unique frame. This DIY project is made using the leaves fallen from the trees that you will find around your home. This fall, collect some leaves and color them with gold or silver spray paint. Stick these after they dry up to a hard paper piece and frame it. Simple and sober it looks great for your walls.
Doing some creative things adds luster to your life especially in a small space where you can use your free time to brainstorm and make some embellishments taking inspirations from the tactics above.
