SIP orders have led to a DIY explosion throughout the world. Home improvement stores are witnessing unprecedented footfalls, on almost every day of the week.
Since more and more time is being spent indoors, people are finally realizing how much they have to do around the house. And now we have the time to do all the things we've been putting off.
These simple DIY decor tips will not only innovate your interiors, but may be a good outlet for stress as well.
1. Recycled Tin Lanterns
These luminaries are simple to make using discarded tin cans, which we have been stocking up on these days. Just poke random holes in the recycled cans, using a hammer and a nail, or try creating your own design.
Be careful of injuries by driving the nail just enough to create the hole. When finished, place a candle or light inside and put it on the patio for a stunning effect.
2. Seashell Candles
Most of us keep shells, either as a hobby or as memories from beach vacations and then don't know what to do with them. By using wax and a wick you can turn these shells into useful, decorative home accessories.
Glue the wick to the bottom of the shell and pour a mix of melted beeswax and a few drops ofessential oil in the shell, holding the wick up with a skewer. Allow it set, trim the wick and your loving candle is ready. If you don't have seashells, a coconut shell would look great too.
3. Travel Boxes
Since travel is not feasible in the current scenario, an opportunity to look back on past trips can be a fun alternative. This DIY storage hack is made of old empty DVD cases (or other small boxes), which are converted into individual memory boxes.
Mark each case with the name of a particular place, fill it with knick knacks from your trips, and paste the cover with a map. Tickets, stamps, receipts, photos or postcards all make impressive mementos.
