Take a look at the following do-it-yourself home decoration ideas that promise to inspire you creating a whole new place.
Create a gallery using inexpensive frames.
Use your walls to decorate and add something more to your house. Gallery walls are very popular nowadays and you don’t need to be a professional photographer to create one. Gather pictures in various shapes and sizes frames and arrange your art and personal photos on one central wall. If you want the frames to match, try to color them and add some cheerful patterns.
Mirror, mirror on the wall…
Mirrors are incredibly simple decoration tools. They don’t only serve for you to look at yourself, but also for your house to look bigger and brighter. Placing mirrors on the wall gives the sensation that rooms are larger and add an exquisite touch to the space itself. There are lots of options in the markets for sizes and shapes. If you don’t feel excited enough just with the mirror idea, add a small table up against the mirror, and then place a plant with flowers on the table, on the mirror side.
Stick on a wallpaper.
Stick-on wallpaper is cheap and an alternative idea to the traditional one. This idea can save you time and money, simply because stick-on wallpaper is fast to apply. You can find it in retro flowers, brick, faux hardwood, etc. To create a different space in your house, like a little corner to your plants or your laundry, it is the perfect option to innovate.
In a house, candles are never too much. If you are sensitive to odors, just buy the neutral ones. If you love the perfume of many flavors, give wings to your imagination and decorate your place with all the candles you can. Candles add a touch of personal style. Place a candle in a jar for a rustic look or place them against some mirrors to an amplified glow. If you have some nice beer or wine bottles, buy thin and tall candles and place it in the hole of the bottles. Once they melt, the bottle will be all decorated with the wax.
Make wine bottle lamps.
Not only are candles a good do-it-yourself home decoration idea for empty bottles, but also try adding some stringed white lights inside to make a bottle lamp. You will have a unique piece. Usually, the lights you buy for your Christmas tree are the ones that will fit the best inside the bottles. Nevertheless, if a bottle doesn’t seem a good idea to you, don’t hold your horses on trying other techniques. Buy a transparent bowl and add a string of lights inside. The result is no less than a delicate and beautiful piece.
Use a tray for random objects.
If you have a vintage tray kept in your storage for a long time, wait no longer and bring it back to life. Place it somewhere you like and use it to hold other decorations, like a small vase, a candle, a pineapple fashion piece or some flowers. Once again, imagination is the secret.
Home furnishings can affect your personal energy, according to Feng Shui specialists.

Your house should have your own personal touch and belong to you. Your house is the mirror of your personality. Give it a good vibe.
