Save Money Decorating Your Home

 

W

ho has extra cash sitting around these days for decorating?  Not me, and probably not you, either.  Wallets are thin and gas prices are high, so the world of DIY has really come into play more than usual.  Besides the tried-and-true purchasing of old furniture at estate or garage sales and refinishing them yourself, other simple methods of making your home look fab have started to surface.  And guess what?  Some of them are free (or very cheap).

Let’s start with The Painted Hive’s magic decal transfer tutorial.  You can create customized jars for your kitchen counter or pantry with these free decal templates.  Genius!

Or, what about burlap wrapped vases and votives?  Simply purchase inexpensive burlap and hot glue it to your votive.  Jayson Home sells them for up to $45!

Besides these two simple DIY projects, Stylelist Home has the most adorable wall decoration that is FREE to make.  Read more about this project and several more on their website here. Enjoy counting those benjamins you’ve saved!
