DIY: Create your own home decor with simple craft materials

 

Does the very idea of DIY-ing (Do-It-Yourself) decor for your home sound too daunting that it scares you?

Fret not, it really isn't that difficult. 

All you need are some simple craft materials:

1) washi tape (a type of decorative coloured adhesive tape).

There are so many variety available at art and craft stores that you'll be spoilt for choice.

There are no hard and fast rules on what types you should choose, because it is going to be your own work of art at the end of the day, so go with what you like, and just unleash your creativity!

2) craft paper in any size, colour or shape that you like

3) photo frames so you can display your works of art beautifully later on

4) scissors or pen knife

5) and stickers, if you like

I tried my hands at creating three different designs — confetti, chevron patterned and a house (all pictured below).

A quick tip: It helps you better visualise the final design if you do a rough sketch on the craft paper before beginning to stick the washi tape.

Try it out, and have fun while you're at it!

Once you get the hang of it, you might even want to explore larger canvases or even walls in your home.

Take inspirations from these:
