If you are anything like me, then your house is full of little vignettes. I have them everywhere...bookcases, coffee tables and shelves. I love combining collected antiques with finds from Target. I also love to shop my own house and determine how I can use what I already own.
For today's home decor project, I am showing you simple, clean and classic ways to use your scrappy goodies to give your ready-made home decor items an upgrade.
I have two shelves in my newly renovation bathroom that were dying to be dressed in simple flowers, towels and candles. Some things I owned worked okay but after I gave them small enhancements, they were perfect. Here is my finished project!
See the artwork? I could not find anything small enough or with the right colors to fit this room. So I made my own. I used two of my favorite images from the Now and Then collection to cut 4X4 squares. The frame was only $14.00 and I had the paper...not bad!
I decided to dress up my glass jar and planter! I took burlap twine from the Tell Your Story line and simply wrapped it around the neck of a glass bottle. You could continue this look around wood letters, tin cans or glass jars of your own. I also covered the top of the planter in washi tape to add a touch of gray. Now the planter fits more with my decor.
Finally, I made an already pretty candle even better! I simply wrapped a music note border around the tin. I added a beautiful Teresa gem to the center to hide the seam and to add some sparkle.
In the world of home decor, a little bit can go a long way to helping you create personalized items of your own!
