Okay, we are obsessed with succulents! They’re stunning and nearly impossible to destroy. Succulents store water just about everywhere, allowing them to thrive in various conditions while remaining low maintenance. Throw a few on your windowsill or desk for an immediate earthy touch. There’s something about bringing nature inside that makes a space so much more zen. Home Depot has quite the collection.
A photo string is a flexible, creative way to display pictures. Hang a string/wire vertically or horiztonally on your wall, and use clothes pins to hold up photos, collages, ticket stubs, meaningful letters, etc. It’s quite easy to compose. Just purchase string, clothespins, and command hooks from any local crafts store. Decorate the pins with jewels or paint, and hang the string using command hooks. Done.
I’ve never really understood why bulletin boards come in such an unattractive, brown color. No fear, there’s a fix for that too… Simply buy a cork board tile, modge podge, and the fabric of your choice from any crafts store. Glue the fabric over the tile using the modge podge, securing the fabric ends around the edge using hot glue. Use your cute new board to post reminders, photos, tickets, anything.
Our final suggestion truly embodies “last but certainly not least.” If you haven’t heard of washi tape, your life is about to change for the better! Washi tape is a low adhesive, prettier version of masking tape composed of rice paper. Like chalkboard paint, it has an array of functions. We’re loving this use, while this one goes perfectly with our frame wall suggestion above! In fact, you can use washi tape to decorate the clothespins and pictures on your photo string, as a border for your homemade bulletin board, and to spice up the succulent pots. If this isn’t enough, check out this amazing pinterest board for more washi tape inspiration!
