I used to create pinwheel paper to decorate my childhood room. It always relates to our childhood memories. Create an exceptional bouquet with some handmade pinwheels to add a pop of color to your living space. These paper pinwheels are easy to make. All you need is a variety of colorful cardstock, scissors, and a few round fasteners.
Use some wires to create the pinwheel stem and you are good to go. These beautiful pinwheels can be made in different lengths to fill the vase. This centerpiece makes perfect decor for your room, living room, or home office. Choose some colorful shades or bold colors for your pinwheels. Place this vase anywhere you want and you will surely get some compliments.
Sea-inspired wind chimes
Add some accent home decor and sea-inspired wind chimes to complete your coastal home design theme. You can choose some of those cool-hued wind chimes with seashells and driftwood or create a wind chime by choosing some faux glass beads, decorative gemstones, and colorful shells. Be creative and add some nautical charms or coastal-inspired lanterns to make your living space look stunning and appealing.
Wooden box centerpiece
Do you have a pile of unused wooden boxes? It’s time to get creative with them. Paint them with some soothing colors that you all love. Add some flowers to create an elegant and charming centerpiece for your table or work desk. This box can be easily made at home with few easy steps.
If you don’t have wooden boxes, then buy a rustic-looking wooden box from outside. Remember to keep this decorating on a budget. Once you have the box, you can paint it with a soft pastel color. Add some flowers to the box, and place it over your kitchen island or living room. You can use this wooden box to store a few of your items as well, like your stationery. If you want to add a contemporary touch to this vintage box, add some ribbons and use some bold color flowers instead.
Rainbow effect with paper dahlias
Are you a fan of a rainbow? If you are looking forward to colorizing your white walls, then create the rainbow effect with some handmade paper dahlias would be a lovely idea for decorating on a budget. This paper flower DIY is a perfect activity for all ages. You can make them with your children on the weekend and have some fun together!
Choose some vibrant colored papers for this DIY. You can also choose colored papers of various tones for making a single flower. Cut out squares from the colored paper and make cones out of each. Arrange the cones around a disc and glue them. Stick these paper dahlias on a neutral-colored wall in your home.
Are you up to another decorating on a budget idea? You can add some decorative pillows with a plant-based theme or seashell-themed – whatever theme you love. Your living room will be beautifully highlighted with these decorative pillows. I plan to have a Harry Potter theme when I have my own house in the future!
Use the pillows on accent chairs or mix and match with your existing pillows. The choice is all yours. Go the minimalist way to avoid overdoing the theme.
When I was in middle school, I once made a triangular star-shaped room decoration out of straws or papers. I bought colorful straws of various sizes and made stars one by one. It’s fun activities and makes my room setting look colorful.
Other than straws, you can use some floral garlands to make your home setting look vibrant and welcoming. Floral garlands add a pop of color to your outdoor setting too. You can use these as a part of your indoor decoration as well. This tissue tassel garland is an ideal theme décor for an anniversary, wedding, or birthday party.
DIY mason jar flower vase
The last idea for decorating on a budget is a DIY Mason jar flower vase. If you don’t have mason jars at home, you can buy 2-3 from an online shop or nearby store in your area. Paint the jars with your favorite colors or color that matches your living room. Allow each one to dry before using them as a flower vase. Add some fresh flowers or dried flowers and decorate any corner of your house that needs a fresh makeover.
