Everyone likes a cozy home decorated with favorite treasures. However, it can get expensive to continually buy home decor items to fill your space. Instead, you may want to consider making some of your own accessories to outfit a room. Not only could you save some money but you also have the potential of creating something truly unique.

I used salvaged industrial coils and simply cleaned them and finished them off with a glossy varnish. The candlesticks fit perfectly into the top of the coils.
Of course, not all craft ideas for home decor are so simple! Some actually require more than two items…like maybe three or four. Most of the craft ideas that I have found are very easy and offer a big bang for the buck.
Here are some of the best that I found. Just click on the photo for the craft tutorial.
