Really cute DIY ideas - that look pretty simple too!

I love home decorating projects :) I found these on Cookie Magazine and I thought they were really cute...


She used an salvaged window frame bought on the cheap and used free wallpaper samples to create this pretty panel. There's so much you could do with this!

Get the instructions from CraftyNest


I've been doing this for a couple years now - I buy and/or collect pretty postcards or greeting cards, frame them (they don't have to be expensive frames), and then hang them in groups. It makes for a nice "arts + crafts" look

frame a tea towel

I also do this - if you can bear to rip plates out of an old artbook - frame them.

Great ideas.. especially framing a tea towel. There are so many great patterns around. I may have to steal this (and link back to this site, of course!)

I love the windowpane & wallpaper idea! I have lots of fabric sample books that would be perfect for this idea - thanks :)

Love love love the first picture of the wallpaper squares. I have a bunch of really fun Trina Turk fabric samples that I would love to put into one of these wall hangings. What a great idea. Thanks for the ideas!

I love window frame in the first picture...So pretty and makes me think I might be able to do something like that (even though I'm not the best DIYer).
