Handmade Living Room Décor

Handmade Living Room Décor

If you are crafty or thrifty, or a combination of the two, you can make your own living room décor for a fraction of the price of buying new.  From elegant drapes recycled from old sheets to fluffy throw pillows in brilliant colors, you can make many of the items commonly used to decorate a living room.

For just a few dollars, you can get enough fabric at the fabric store, along with a big bag of poly stuffing, to create your own unique throw pillows.  These work great to help change up a room’s stale décor, because they can be easily replaced with new colors or swapped out for season changes.

If you can knit, crochet, sew or even just tie knots, you can make your own throw blankets, too.  The best part about making your own is that they will be the perfect size and completely unique – you get to decide exactly what you want.

An old lampshade can be cleaned up and decorated with embellishments to bring new life to a worn out light.  Make collages from your favorite photos or get adventurous and paint your own wall art for a look that is totally you.

Shop your local thrift store to find odds and ends that can be arranged into unique coffee table art, or stitch together scraps of funky fabrics for a wall hanging that is sure to turn heads.

With a little creativity and some inexpensive supplies, you can turn your living room into a haven you will enjoy visiting, without breaking the bank.
