Out of ease and convenience, we automatically go to buy items for our homes instead of putting the time and effort into creating something personalised.

Whilst this is fine, sometimes it can be nice to make something that is truly yours, that you can display with pride within your home. Not only do you get a great sense of achievement by the end of it, but you might also pick up a hobby along the way whilst learning a thing or two. It’s a fantastic way to get your creative juices flowing and perhaps unlock some hidden talent that you didn’t know that you had. Let’s look into different ways to make your own home interior decorations.

Canvas Prints

With canvas prints, whilst you’re not printing the canvases yourself, you are selecting exactly what it is they are displaying, along with choosing how to customise them, what size they are, and what material. Then you also have the task of displaying them in the right place and arrangement in your home, so you are definitely playing a big part in the creation process.

Homemade Tapestry Piece

Why not try your hand at bringing to life homemade tapestry? You can create a statement piece to hang on your wall that will be a real showstopper. If you have empty walls in your home, this is a great way to fill them with colours and patterns that you love. Have a look at this website for inspiration.

‘Abstract’ Art

Grab yourself some paint and paper and get to work! With abstract art, you don’t need any ‘real’ artistic skills, you can just let loose on what is in front of you. You can do this with colourful crayons, pens or paint. Don’t think about it too much, just see what you end up with. If you’re really stuck, just splatter some paint or do a scribble to start you off, and then go from there. You’ll soon get into it and have some interesting creations by the end of it. This is also extremely therapeutic and low cost, so enjoy it. Don’t expect masterpieces but you can come out with pretty cool results that you can then use to decorate your home.

Press Flowers

Pressing flowers is relatively straightforward to do, and it creates an intriguing effect that you can then put up on your walls in frames. There are various different methods of doing so, and you don’t need many materials for it. Once your flower is pressed, you can then create a framed botanical print to brighten up your home. These are super cute and will be something that you are proud to display.

Making your own decorations at home is a way for you to have fun and get creative. On top of that, by the end of it, you should have something totally unique that you can decorate your home with.
