Home Decor for Cheap

After the Bed, Bath & Beyond gift cards from the wedding are used up (mostly on essentials!) there’s still decorating left to do, and we don’t have a lot of extra cash, so I’ve been on the search for cheaper ways to decorate our little home. Here’s six easy and cheap ways to decorate!

1. PAINT SAMPLES (for when you aren’t allowed to actually paint)

Ok, paint samples are just about the best because you can use them in a variety of ways, and…they’re free! For widest selections, check out big hardware stores like Lowes or Home Depot.

Paint samples

Use a collage of paint samples to add color to a blank wall.

Bed

No headboard? Use uniform squares to create a focal point above your bed.

Dots

Dress it up and cut into shapes.

2. FAKE VINYL LETTERING

Because vinyl is expensive. You can use black construction paper or those paint samples again.

3. OLD NECKLACES AS CURTAIN TIEBACKS

Old jewelry you don’t wear anymore works fantastically as curtain ties.

4. CANDLES

I don’t know about you, but I accumulate a lot of candles. And mid size ones are only 2.50 at Walmart. Put them on display!

5. BRING NATURE INDOORS

Like in the above photo, use seashells, sea glass, and pretty rocks to dress up a ledge. Or plant some seeds and watch them grow. Plants are a great way to liven up a space.

Terrarium

Terrariums can be a fun project that results in a beautiful accent to a room.

6. HIT UP A THRIFT STORE (LIKE GOODWILL OR DESERET INDUSTRIES)

I love little knickknacks, especially little containers. They’re so handy, too! Use as flowerpots, candle holders, a place for your pens, or simply decoration.
