After covid struck the world in 2020 DIY or Do It Yourself projects are on the rise. Sitting at home during lockdown gave people quite a lot of free time, which was utilized by most people in acquiring new skills.
And since everyone was stuck at home most of us(including me) took a hand in trying to redecorate with stuff we had at home. Be it creating new shelves, extra storage, repainting rooms or adding accent walls and stickers the internet and people probably saw it all.
Some simple DIY projects to spice up your home:
If you are looking for simple home improvement techniques the following DIY projects are a must-try.
DIYed pom-pom lights:
If you are simply tired of your regular fairy lights, you can spruce them up by adding coloured yard balls around them.
Simply blow up some small balloons, add the coloured yarns into a mixture of glue and water and cover the balloon. Once it dries up, all you need to do is pop the balloons and pop them over each small light. And the simple single-coloured fairy lights now become a multicoloured fiesta.
DIYed plant wall:
Many of us turned to plants during the pandemic and a DIY plant wall is an excellent space saver and also a simple way to liven up a drab-looking wall.
All you need are some macrame hangers or some string and a little inspiration (just go over to the internet) and add your plants to the wall. It is better to add them in layers to give more structure to the arrangement.
Stencilling an accent wall:
Adding an accent wall is probably the easiest method to brighten up any room. And it is simple enough to do it yourself.
You can use a readymade sticker from the internet or you can buy a stencil and paint. All you need to do is arrange it on the floor first and decide on the arrangement and then apply it to your walls.
Fake marble countertops or backsplashes:
Tired of your kitchen backsplash and countertops? Just take on a home improvement project yourself and make things brand new with some simple peel-and-stick tiles and contact paper.
Cut them into the size and measurements of your liking, peel off the back sticker and stick them onto the cleaned surface of choice. And you’re done.
So which of these DIY home improvement projects have you done or will be attempting in the future?
