Nicole from ART+POLITICS+Life was inspired by the work of Paul Villinski to make her own stunning wall mural for less than $20 using vinyl, a hand drawn stencil, and scissors. Nicole says, “It’s actually very simple and completely removable if you decide to redecorate. This project is perfect for dorm rooms or any other room that needs a statement piece.”

A Heart Wreath You Will “Love”

heart shaped wreath

Jennifer from Decorated Chaos wanted to add wall décor to her freshly painted master bedroom and was inspired by all the boxwood wreaths she had seen to create her own. Luckily, Jennifer was able to pick up a heart-shaped twig wreath and two strands of greenery at the thrift store for a bargain. I love that Jennifer didn’t stop with the wreath but added her own spin by mounting it to a piece of bead board and stenciling the word love, making it perfect for a master suite!

Turn an Old Window into Fourth of July Décor

The minute Shannon from High Wire Living laid eyes on Ethan Allen’s American flag “Foundation,” she was in love. Unfortunately, $999.00 was more than she could afford. However, she did have an old window sitting in the corner of her bedroom begging for some love. With some vintage-look scrapbook paper and acrylic paint, Shannon was able to transform the window into a similar look. The cost? $40.00, which includes the cost of the window and the materials to make it!

Decorative Ship Wheel for a Nautical Nursery

Mable from Lilato Laka shares another fun addition to her son’s nautical-themed nursery with this decorative ship wheel After spying a wood steering wheel at Hobby Lobby for $44, Mable challenged herself to recreate it. Sure, the wheel would have been pretty inexpensive with a coupon, but where’s the fun in that? Plus, Mable already had most of the supplies on hand to make her own. Mabel’s wheel looks so much like her inspiration that I honestly did a double take to figure out which was which!
