Floating Shelves 

Every room needs a good shelf to house knickknacks and other decorative items. Making a unique shelf is an easy way for beginners to add character to any space. All you need are some brackets, nails, a stud-finder, and a drill. Using unconventional items, like wood stumps and brightly colored planks, leaves a special touch on all your designs. 

Gallery Wall 

Blank walls are an eyesore. Liven up any area with a gallery wall that expresses your unique taste and style. This doesn’t have to be an expensive project, either. Find cool art prints at your local thrift store or make art with a cheap canvas and any craft supplies you have at home. 

Baby Mobile 

While taking your mind off motherhood is our main goal, it’s always easier said than done. If you want to include the little one in the mix, a baby mobile is a creative DIY project to decorate your home with. Materials like ribbons, pom-poms, and reflective plastic provide your child with stimulation while also acting as a fun activity for you.
