How can you decorate a room with your own handsPictolic
In this article, we will tell you how you can decorate a room with your own hands with the help of thirty classic and modern decor ideas. You will learn how to create "impossible" bookshelves, make paintings without knowing how to draw, and learn how to earn $16,000 on an ornamental plant.
Modular or panel paintings are the main trend of the last two years among paintings. You can order such a composition from an artist, buy it online or make it yourself.
Tip: before buying expensive materials and immediately trying to make a masterpiece from the first time, practice creating paintings and frames on old bed linen or cheap photo wallpapers.
You can make a picture in 5 steps:
String art - paintings made of threads. You can do this in a couple of hours, even if you do not know how to draw or sew.
For manufacturing, you will need a board with a thickness of 2-3 cm, shoe nails and thread.
It will not be possible to make space paintings with a spray can on your own, but street artists sell them relatively inexpensively, while each picture is unique and you will not find a second one like this.
Family tree. Decorating the room with photos of your close and distant relatives will help you not to forget about your roots and ancestors.
Photos with a world map are suitable for travelers.
If you have visited several countries and brought with you not only pleasant impressions, but also photos, use them as an idea for decorating the room.
Stretching is the easiest and fastest way to decorate a room using photos. You will only need a rope and clothespins or invisibles. Such a composition can be stretched along the wall or across the entire room. Instead of a rope, you can use a garland or an LED strip.
Magazines with you and your friends on the cover. If you know how to work in graphic editors, you can design photos in the style of fashionable glossy magazines, print them, paste them on a real magazine and hang them on the wall.
A pillow made of your favorite T-shirt, shirt or sweater.
If the jacket is not so neat and new that it can be worn, but it is a pity to throw it away, you can make a pillow out of it.
Fruit pillows in the form of watermelon, cherry or lemon will add juicy colors to the design
A pillow bag can be made in five minutes, even if you do not know how to sew: fill a single duvet cover with pieces of foam rubber or unnecessary clothes — and the pillow is ready.
Photo wallpapers are the easiest and fastest option.
You can use not only ready-made images, but also your own drawings or photos.
Coloring the walls through a stencil will help to make several bright accents and diversify the plain walls. To work, you will need a printed drawing, cardboard for a stencil and a roller with paint.
Multi-colored electrical tape and simple geometric drawings will help to make a strong accent without using paint, which means that they can be changed at least every day.
Car license plates. If you like car travel and Loft style, try to use car license plates of different countries, states and provinces in the decor.
Mirrors in the interior will not only decorate the room, but also add light and visually increase the free space. Stick several mirrors of different shapes and sizes on the wall with double-sided tape or hang them on threads to the ceiling if you do not want to leave traces on the wall.
The dream catcher will not only decorate the wall, but also protect your sleep. It can be hung on the wall or over the bed.
To make it, you will need a piece of thick wire, knitting threads, beads and feathers.
The real physical embodiment of your desires, achievements and plans is not only a personal motivation, but also something with which you can decorate a room.
Take a cork board and attach drawings and photos of everything that makes you move forward: dreams of a new car, memories of a trip to the sea, goals for the next year, and so on.
The easiest way to decorate your bookshelves is to paint them in bright colors.
If you do not want to spoil the shelves, you can use adhesive paper for decoration instead of paint.
Invisible bookshelves can be made in 5 minutes. Such a shelf will not take up space, and your books will effectively float in the air. For manufacturing, you will need a regular metal corner, screws and a screwdriver.
You can buy a lamp made of a light cord ready-made or make it yourself.
You will need a light cord, the skill of twisting wires, a cord with a plug, glue and plexiglass or any other solid material on which you can glue a neon tape.
The lamp in the bottle can be made desktop or suspended. The desktop can be made in just a minute — you just need to put a garland in the bottle and connect it.
To make a hanging lamp, you will have to cut off the bottom of the bottle and carefully polish the edges. If you do not know how to work with a glass cutter, there is a way to cut the bottle with a rope. Take a clothesline or knitting thread and get wet in gasoline. Tie it on the bottle closer to the bottom and cut off the excess. Set the rope on fire for 15-20 seconds. Quickly lower the bottle into cold water, holding it by the neck. The bottle will crack in a straight line at the place of the winding and the bottom will fall off by itself.
IMPORTANT: do not try to unscrew the cartridge yourself, cut the wire or make a twist if you do not understand electrics. If you make an error, you can burn the wiring or get an electric shock. Better invite an electrician.
The lamp in the ball is made almost in the same way as the lamp in the bottle. You will need a garland, a balloon, knitting threads, PVA glue and petroleum jelly or any other lubricant.
Predator plants are not only unusual, but also beautiful.
For example, this is what a Venus flytrap looks like:
A rock garden is a composition of sand, stones, plants and decorative elements.
This decor not only looks nice, but also helps to relax and calm down when you change the composition, add new elements.
Bonsai is a real mini-tree with its own microbiome, which can and should be taken care of.
The life span of such a tree is calculated in decades, but there are also copies of 300-400 years old, worth millions, since the greater the age, the more expensive the tree is.
Some Asian families have been making money from this for generations.
Since you can beautifully decorate a room not only with plants, but also with vases, here are three ways to do it quickly and simply.
To paint a vase or even an ordinary jar in a bright juicy color is enough to dilute a monotonous composition.
Winding with branches is suitable for lovers of Eco-style. You will need several live or artificial branches and a rope.
A vase made of concrete and rags can be given any shape, and then painted. It is enough to moisten the rag in cement mortar, fix it in the desired shape and let it dry.
At the bottom of the future vase, you need to put a plastic or glass mold, since concrete can pass water when watering.
