6 DIY Home Decor Projects We’re Doing in 2021
1. Fabric Coasters Made out of (Printfresh!) Fabric
Our early pajama sets were designed to ship in fabric pouches (we’re transitioning away from these pouches in 2021) – so we were always looking for ways to reuse and recycle that extra fabric. One of our favorite DIYs from these pouches are our Fabric Coasters – but really you can use any fabric you have at home. Brighten up your coffee table with our DIY Coasters – you can find step-by-step instructions here!
2. Sew a Simple and Neutral Pot Holder
Pot holders are such a simple and low cost way to freshen up your kitchen. We love the idea of using remnant fabric for this DIY to mix patterns and patchwork. We’re so inspired by this mix of fabrics and colors and the creative stitchwork in Peapod Journal’s example.
3. Muslin Kitchen Towels
Always Andrea gave us this incredible idea to DIY dish towels with leftover muslin material from a past home decor project. We love making use of materials we have on hand – not only for the cost savings, but also because a new project can help you think creatively about how to use those leftover materials that have been lying around. These muslin kitchen towels are a great neutral addition to update a kitchen with texture.
4. Beaded Towel Rings
Create your own natural material beaded towel ring with a few leftover supplies and just a bit of dye. Make sure to get a metal ring for the base and reuse your beads from our DIY Wooden Bead Garland to create a neutral yet useful piece in your bathroom.
5. Toilet Paper Holder
Amy’s new home is close to the beach, so she’s looking for ways to bring a touch of nautical into her space. But don’t worry – these Jute rope toilet paper holders are neutral enough even if you don’t live near the sea.
6. Stick Loom Weaving
This may be one of our favorite activities to do with the family because it involves them working together and staying focused. It’s an incredible piece to hang as wall art or on a bookshelf for a pop of color and texture in a kid’s room.
When You’re Ready For a Slightly Larger Project
Kitchen renovations can sound scary to the uninitiated, but they don’t always have to mean a total gut. It is possible to give your kitchen an upgrade that is more budget friendly with a fresh coat of paint and unique decor. Amy and Leo’s kitchen went from dated and dreary to modern, functional and bright thanks to painted cabinets, countertop refresh, new hardware and updated appliances.
We love transforming our space with creative projects (and occasionally a little elbow grease) – especially because we get to work on these projects in our pajamas! Do you plan to tackle any new DIY projects at home this year?
