DIY - Decor Details...

For me, it's not just the way I present myself that's important, it's my entire space which is my home. I just can't stop jazzing it up. Some of you have been kind enough to notice and compliment me on my decor skills! *Thank you* :)

I love personalising things as I always like to have something a little bit different to everyone else. I have done a few little DIY jobs around the bedroom, and I wanted to share them with you so that you can do it too!



I put a picture frame up above my bed and instead of framing a "normal" picture, I used a dried flower. Anyone who sees it comments on how interesting and unique it looks. The cost? Nothing, just dry some of your fresh flowers inside a book. (The picture frame is from Ikea)




I added some crochet flowers in the shape of a heart onto a cushion I already had...


Obviously this is a bit hard to do if you can't crochet, but you can always use beads, buttons, fabric and anything else you can think of to embellish cushions to really customise them and make them your own. The cost? £2.20 for the yarn & I already had the pearl beads.


Lastly, I really wanted some interesting candles but had difficulty finding them in the colours I wanted. I managed to find a khaki candle for about £2 and I wrapped around some paper flowers that I joined together like a daisy chain. You can tie ribbons, feathers or whatever else goes with the theme of your room. The cost? Nothing, the paper flowers were from my wedding.


Don't be scared to personalise, but be warned once you start you will not be able to stop!

Are you inspired to any DIY decor details to your bedroom?
