The Best DIY Knock Offs In Home Decor

I love shopping for home decor accents but I hate most of the price tags!  Did you ever notice though that some of the coolest items have the simplest designs?  So many times I find myself thinking “I could make that!” Well that is exactly what I and  many of you have done!  We have created DIY knock offs of our favorite retail home decor finds.

DIY Knock Offs

Pottery Barn Birch Candles

I especially like the clean rustic look of white birch bark.  The simple tea light candle holders that you often see in stores, like this one from Pottery Barn, are easy enough to make.

This knock off was easy to make and to get the glitter affect I just apply shimmering glamour dust to the varnish before it is dry.

Anthropologie Jute Lantern

Anthropologie has all kinds of great home decor and I just love this chic jute lantern:

I am loving the table knock off version by The Golden Sycamore just as much!  It is such a great look.

Restoration Hardware Fishing Weights

Here is a fun idea that was inspired by Restoration Hardware.

These fishing weights are pretty expensive to purchase so Aimee of Twigg Studio’s created her own using various sized balls, clay and paint. She covered different sized balls with clay and then layered them with metallic paints.

Pottery Barn Desk

Are you in need of a new desk?  Check out this inspiration photo from Pottery Barn.

Very nice, stylish and functional.  Now look what you can do with a couple of Goodwill file cabinets, a wood panel desktop and a nice coat of chalk paint.
