Simple DIY Home Decor Projects That Anyone Can Do

Simple DIY home decor projects? Sign me up! Any chance to be creative and make things, I’m there.

The only problem?

I’m awful at DIY projects. Like, absolutely awful.

I was that kid in school who would come up with the most elaborate art projects that sounded really great on paper, but could never execute on them. DIY crafts have just never been my strong suit.

And so, today, in order to give some of my fellow not-so-crafty ladies a little boost in confidence, I compiled a list of 11 simple DIY home decor projects that literally anyone can do (no complicated steps or special skills required).

Plus, I intentionally picked DIY projects that are not only super easy, but will also add a nice little refresh to your home.

Are you down to give DIY another shot?

Here are 11 simple DIY home decor projects that anyone can do:

1. A Monochromatic Paint Chip Centrepiece

Give life to an old picture frame with this simple DIY project.

Again, I made sure limited supplies were needed. For this one, just an old frame, some circular wood pieces, a glue gun, and paint for the wood chips (you could easily keep the natural color of the wood if you wanted a more woody feel for your frame).

And voila! You’ve got a new way to frame all your favorite photos.

P.S. this is a great project to do when trying to add some texture and visual interest to a gallery wall.

Perfectly feminine with that dash of boho flavor, this DIY project is so up my alley.

While it might take a little more effort than painting cones or adding some washi tape to a tin can, I know if I can do this DIY project, so can you.

All you’ll need is a gold macrame ring (which you can easily order off of Amazon), plus yarn and some scissors. Easy peasy. Give it a try!

7. Metallic Gold Chair Legs

Simply wrap some metallic gold adhesive vinyl around the furniture legs of your choice, and your piece of furniture easily gets a makeover.

8. A Chic Serving Tray

This simple DIY home decor project caught my attention largely because I actually do have some old cupboard doors lying around.

For this project, simply take an old cupboard door, and transform it into a serving tray by adding handles. So easy, and perfect for entertaining.

9. Framed Paper Pieces

Another project that really doesn’t take any skills, but still looks great is this art piece.

With this project, instead of seeking out expensive art to fill your home, simply pick up a gallery frame (can be any configuration that you want), and then fill the frames with decorative paper in patterns and colors to match the decor of your room.

This can be way cheaper than buying an already completed piece of art. Plus, you can more easily customize the pieces to coordinate with the style you already have going on in your home.

10. Geometric Pinboards

This DIY project makes for a fun idea if you have a home office that you want to spruce up.

While pin boards can be great on their own for adding cute pictures and notes to your office, they’re even better when you add playful pops of color.

Pick your favorite colors to match your office for an instant boost in style.

Spray painting glassware? Can it really get any easier?


With this easy to follow tutorial on spray painting mason jars, you can take the steps and really apply it to any glassware. Old wine bottles, beer bottles, tin cans, really, any type of jar will work. Then, simply add some fresh flowers to the vase, and you’ve got the perfect style statement to put on your dining room table.

Plus, you can spray paint in whatever colors you want, mix and match bottle shapes, and even play with multiple colors in one statement.

If you’re not somebody who is naturally crafty, mixing and matching is the perfect way to get your creative juices flowing without having to be overly crafty.

And there you have it: simple DIY home decor projects that literally anyone can do.

I made sure none of the projects required any drilling, nailing, or complicated instructions. Plus, most of these projects require only three materials or less.
