You can make an original design for decorating windows, zoning space from ordinary ribbons. To assemble it, you don't need anything but hands. There will be no need to cut or sew. To create a ribbon curtain you will need:
- ready-made multi-colored ribbons.
Instead of ribbons, you can take strips of fabric with non-frayed edges. Clips can be used instead of buttons.
For such curtains, you can use ready-made tapes.
The original home decor with your own hands is assembled as follows. The tape strip is thrown onto the cornice and fixed with a clamp. In order to increase decorativeness, it is additionally advised to string large mother-of-pearl beads onto thin ribbons. You can simply tie the ribbons on the cornice. The bottom edge of the curtain is often curly.

The technology of the process is simple and consists in stuffing a cut with an interesting ornament or a pretty print on the frame. The latter is made from any available material.

In order for the craft to become the accent of the interior, you need to choose the right color and pattern. The design of a DIY home decor will be effective only if the motives of the picture overlap with the solution of a carpet on the floor or a tablecloth on a table, for example.
How does the creative process take place? The selected flap of fabric is ironed, cut out in the shape of the frame. The pattern should have a small margin so that the fabric can be tucked in and fixed on the wrong side of the base.
Fold up the fabric to secure it to the frame
When fastening the material, it is necessary to monitor the quality of its tension. The painting should not sag. You can fix the canvas with a stapler, small studs with wide caps.

Planters from packages
How often do you throw away paper bags as unnecessary, but you can make a great craft for home decor from this material with your own hands. They are easy to turn into flower pots. In addition to paper bags, you should stock up on wooden skewers, rope, scissors, glue and a plastic container.
Materials for planters from paper bags
Cut the paper noodles from the bags. We need 8 strips with a size of 7 x 30 cm. For even cutting, mark the paper base with dotted lines.
We take one of the strips obtained, put the prepared skewer in its corner and wind the blank on it with diagonal turns. The result should be a paper tube. So that the details of the craft for decorating the house with your own hands do not unfold, their tips should be glued immediately. At this stage, it is more convenient to work with a glue gun.
We wind the strips on a skewer with diagonal turns
While the tubes are drying, let's start preparing the base of the future pots. We coat the plastic container with glue and wrap it with paper, again taken from the bags. This must be done so that the plastic base becomes invisible. We glue the previously prepared tubes to the bottom of a container pasted over with paper, so that they resemble diverging rays of the sun.
Glue the tubes to the bottom of the container
You will have to continue to collect beautiful home decor with your own hands with scissors in hand again. Cut the paper noodles again, but already 45 x 7 cm in size and, using the technology described above, fold them diagonally, forming tubes.
Elements previously glued to the container must be bent and pressed against its walls. Next, we will weave our pots like a regular basket of twigs.
Weave the planter like a regular basket
In the upper part of the plastic base, you need to make two symmetrically located holes. It is more convenient to make them with a hot nail. The latter is clamped with pliers and heated over the hob burner. A rope will stretch through the holes in the craft for home decor with your own hands, for which the pots will be hung on the wall or cornice. To prevent the ends of the rope from jumping out of the grooves, large knots need to be tied on them.
Disguise the unsightly knotted knots with another row of weave. Wrap the protruding parts inward and secure with glue.
An unusual but cute planter is ready!

Convert plastic pipes to DIY home decor
From the remains of plastic pipes, you can create a very original decoration that will not be ashamed to be put on public display, decorating, for example, a hall with it. Pipes are cut to the same ring width, with well-processed edges.

Base for frame with mirror
You need to start assembling home decor with your own hands with fixing on the basis of a mirror. It is placed strictly in the center. We carefully coat the remaining free space on the cardboard with glue, and we put the rope on it turn by turn.

From the materials you will need to purchase: stained glass paints, silicone-based glue, glitter. In the course of work, you will have to correct the drawing or eliminate smudges, and it is more convenient to do this with cotton swabs, toothpicks and alcohol. For drawing, it is better to use a glass outline.

It's easier than ever to freshen up your wall designs by stenciling them. It can be a story with a repeating pattern or a single image spread over a large area.
We read articles on similar topics:
The simplest idea is to make an applique on the wall using different pieces of wrapping paper. Cute, unpretentious drawings will create a country-style atmosphere. And for adherents of pop art there is a bolder proposal - a collage of magazines and newspapers.
If you are not ready to glue large spaces with paper, take a closer look at the option of creating paper shapes and compositions from them. Butterflies are the most popular in this concept. With the same success, you can implement a floral theme. Or maybe you will come up with something of your own?
Does it wash off? Noooo! Do not do this! Do not rinse the toilet paper roll. After all, this is an element of the most magnificent panels for decorating walls.
Another paper topic, however, is somewhat more complicated than the previous ones. Quilling - creating decorative elements from curled strips of paper. This is a more painstaking task, but look at how incredibly beautiful the panels are! It makes sense to work hard.
There are many options: from fabric simply stretched over cardboard with a beautiful print to art textiles, where many elements and techniques are combined. Somewhere in between is a patchwork. The work is of medium complexity, and most importantly, there is always available material. Even if you do not sew and there is not a mountain of scraps hidden in the storehouse, use old clothes for decoration. You can make just a beautiful exposition, or you can also make a practical little thing with pockets for various little things.
This is an art for the patient. And he needs to learn. But then you will not only decorate your house with embroidered paintings, but you will be able to decorate home textiles and your clothes with embroidery.
This is a truly limitless topic. Decorating walls with photographs is the easiest way to decorate an apartment. But what to make the frame out of? We take a cardboard box, for example, from under the shoes. We cut out the frame and ... That's what we have at hand, that's what we decorate: yarn, fabric, buttons, shells, newspapers. There is nothing? Go outside, collect twigs.
What are we all about the walls? There is also a floor. Patch rugs are a must-have for rustic styles. There are several simple techniques for creating such carpets, both with and without a sewing machine, by means of checkerboard weaving. By the way, the resulting canvas can be used to cover furniture, sew pillows from it, and in general it is also possible to decorate walls.
Another inexhaustible and very cheerful theme! First, let's break the stereotype: pom-poms do not have to be made of yarn, fabric ribbons are also good. So, you can hang pom-poms on the wall, sew rugs out of them, create panels, make flowers, curtains. Oh! Curtains are the next item!
This does not mean that it is necessary to make them from ribbons. Ribbons will work, though. Ribbon curtains perfectly decorate openings. If you decide to use them on windows, remember, they will not protect you from light, so combine this option with regular curtains or blinds. And you can make such curtains from paper, ribbon canvas, scraps (the very ones from which the rugs were woven), pompons, beads.
With the help of decoupage, you can radically change the style of the interior, turning an old Soviet-era dresser into an elegant eco-style thing. You can decorate almost any surface with de-displaying: furniture, tiles, dishes. The only "but" is that special materials will be required. The technique is not very difficult, but take a small surface to sample. For example, a plate, which can then be used to decorate the wall.
Try, fantasize, combine different techniques. The house, to which not only fantasy is applied, but also the hand of the hostess, is truly warm and dear.
