8 DIY Craft Projects to Brighten Up Your Condo

Share via:

Decorating a condo is essential for channeling one’s expressions and creativity. Not only does it improve a person’s confidence and productivity in their home, but it also creates an environment that they should and would always love to come back to. After all, home is where the heart is. Now, the coronavirus pandemic has led people to spend most, if not all, of their time within the four walls of their homes, and it may have come to a point where their condo décor has turned into something dull and uninspiring. With this, here are eight affordable and easy Do-It-Yourself Craft Projects that – yes, you guessed it – you can make by yourself or with your loved ones at the comfort of your condo to brighten up your space.

Yarn Tassel Garland

Yarn tassel garlands may be the solution to get rid of plain walls by adding some color and dimension to them. What is fun about this project is that you get to choose the colors, thickness, length, and spacings of the tassels – perfect for personalization! All you need are some yarns in the colors of your choice, scissors, a book, and some masking tape.

Popsicle Stick Shelf

Shelves are a great way to add various items to your condo unit – succulents, books, candles, etc. At a low cost, you can craft shelves shaped in the way you would like them to be, such as hexagons, squares, and even letters! All you have to do is stick popsicle sticks together and create many layers of it just so you could make it thick enough to hold a small item. With this, this project requires a lot of popsicle sticks, wood glue, acrylic paint or wood stain, and a paintbrush – all of which could be found in a craft store.

Decorative Photo Hoop

Finding the perfect photo frame to display your favorite photos in your condo may be difficult. So, consider making a photo hoop that is decorated up to your liking. This project is a fun experience and a great piece to look at to reminisce your treasured memories. All it takes is an embroidery hoop (any size you would like) or a hula hoop, scissors, printed photos, and string wire. To decorate the hoop itself, you can choose to paint it or add artificial leaves and flowers – definitely up to your imagination!

Painted Mirror

Are you getting tired of looking at yourself through a bare mirror? Spice up your mirrors by painting on them! This project is a great way to personalize your mirrors and to make your mirror selfies more fun. Now, you could paint on anything. Maybe some flowers and greens to remind yourself of the beauty of nature, or some favorite quotes to remind yourself of your daily mottos. All you have to do is clean the surface of the mirror and start painting it with acrylic paint. Friendly tip, make sure to commit to your design!

Decorative Mason Jars

Instead of throwing or giving mason jars or glass jars away, consider repurposing them as pen holders, planters, piggy banks, candle jars, and many more. To get creative with the mason jars, you can opt to decorate them with stickers, ribbons, labels, paint, and glitter. This craft project is an activity that kids, teens, adults, and seniors would enjoy as they get to transform a plain glass jar into something decorative and useful for the condo.

Photo Scrapbook

A scrapbook is one way to preserve photographs and mementos in one place so that one could easily take a trip down memory lane. Depending on your preference, decorate the scrapbook to your liking and have it displayed anywhere in your home. To make it more personalized and memorable, consider allowing your family and friends to take a look into it, add some drawings, and write short letters in it!

Pin Board

With the surge of online shopping these days due to the pandemic, you may have received a lot of cardboard boxes. Instead of throwing them away, try turning them into pinboards for your to-do lists, important notes, or favorite photos! Simply cut the cardboard into a circle (or any shape you want), cover it with a fabric of your choice, and add some strings to hang it on the wall or just stick it to your wall. You can either use thumbtacks or clothespins to decorate your pinboard, but do not hesitate to get more creative than that!

Washi Tape Wall Art

Afraid of using paint and making a mess of your condo unit? Then resort to washi tape instead! There is a wide selection of washi tapes that you can choose from – ranging from plain colored tape to patterned tape. You can use these tapes to make wall art consisting of different types of lines and shapes. You can even cut green washi tape into the shape of leaves to stick cable wires into the walls – décor and organization, hitting two birds with one stone!

If any of these craft projects spark your imagination, then feel free to search for tutorials and instructions on how to create these simple yet attractive condo décor! Doing these crafts can either be a one-time thing or a hobby, but it all ends with the same thing – a new personalized décor item for one’s home. Even so, seeing something you crafted yourself in different areas of your condo can make you feel satisfied and proud, thereby making your place seem brighter and homier. After all, your condo is where you begin and end the day, so it would be best for you to have it designed in a way that makes you feel comfortable and content.
