Low-Budget Home Decor Tips You Can Do at Home

It is an unfortunate truth that many of us are not born with a natural talent for design or creativity, and many people would agree. Thankfully, in this day and age it is easy to find inspiration and come up with creative living ideas, regardless of your budget. Many people have learned how to make great home decor, like these DIY projects below, without spending too much money.


This really cute idea is very popular on Pinterest, where you basically just need colorful ribbon and clothespins. The original post also has easy instructions on how to put it together. This can be your new favorite decoration for a spring or summer party. If you are using it outside, make sure that the sun isn’t too harsh in your area, because the ribbon might fade.

Gallery Wall

This is a great way to show off your favorite pictures or artwork without having to spend a lot of money on frames. You can use whatever materials you want, like old books, vinyl records, or even pieces of wood. Just make sure that they are all the same size and that the images are the right size to fit on your wall. You can also decorate with paint or string lights.

Fabric Garland

Garland is a cute way to add some color to any party, especially if you already have streamers from a previous event. To make it, all you need is fabric and scissors, but if you want to get really fancy, you can also use paint. Linen is also a great fabric and is very inexpensive, so it’s a great option. If you have unused linen sheets why don’t you convert them into garland decoration? It looks fancy as well as attractive.

Wine Cork Bulletin Board

This is an easy way to add some color and personality to any room. You just need a corkboard, nails, and wine corks that you’ve saved over time (which you can also get from restaurants). 

Mason Jar Vases

These are so popular right now, and for good reason. They are really easy to make and you can use them for anything, from flowers to candles. All you need is a Mason jar and some paint or stickers. You can also add some moss around the top to make it look more rustic.

A Light Box

This is a great way to be creative, while also making some light. All you need is an old box, wood, paint or stickers, and lamps with colorful bulbs. While this will not be cheap to make in the beginning, it can save you money in the long run because if you use LED lamps then you won’t have to worry about the cost of electricity.


If you are tired of your old, boring flooring, then rugs are a great way to add some color and style. You can find really cheap rugs at places like Walmart or Target, or even go to a thrift store and find something unique. Just make sure that the rug is big enough to fit the space that you want it in.


This can be a really great way to add some personality to a room, but it can also be expensive. If you want to save money, then try using wallpaper samples from a hardware store or even from online stores like Overstock.

Wall Art

This is another fun way to express yourself, especially if you make it yourself. You can cut out pieces of fabric or paper to make different shapes and shapes, which you can then put on your wall in a creative way. You can also use paint or markers to draw bigger pictures that mean something special to you.


Curtains can be a great way to make a room feel cozier or inviting. You can find really cheap curtains at places like Walmart, or you could even make them yourself. Just be sure to choose a fabric that will match the rest of your decor.


Adding plants to your home can be a fun way to bring some life into your space. You just have to be careful not to overdo it, because you don’t want any of your decor items to look like they were bought at Home Depot.

Candles are a great way to add some ambiance to a room, and candle holders can be really cheap. You can find them at thrift stores, garage sales, or even online. Just be sure to choose a style that will match the other decor in your home.

With these low-budget home decor tips, you can save money and create a great space that is uniquely your own. Whether it’s linen sheets or inexpensive candle holders for ambiance, there are many ways to add personality without breaking the bank.
