I absolutely love a good budget DIY project. But what I love even more is when those inexpensive DIY projects are as gorgeous as these projects by Melissa at Brown Dog Vintage. Talk about DIYs worth doing – I would love to have absolutely any of these in my own home! (Especially those sconces at the end!) Get ready for your project list to get a little longer!
Hi friends! I’m Melissa from Brown Dog Vintage! I am all about creating lovely things for your home on a budget and I am so excited to be guest posting for Carrie at LovelyEtc while she is on maternity leave!! I’m sharing 5 Amazing DIY Projects on a Budget. These are all things that don’t require a ton of skill but can add some major impact to your decor. Thanks to Carrie for having me! Let’s get DIY’ing!
I created this simple wreath after seeing so many beautiful ideas on Instagram. I needed something for our bedroom makeover and I wanted greenery, budget friendly, and easy to DIY. This is a perfect project for a quick afternoon DIY that makes a big impact.
I decided on a whim one afternoon to DIY a wooden crate – You can never have enough storage! I used scrap wood and some leftover handles from an old furniture project. This one was completely free to me since I used any leftover stain/wood/nails that I already had laying in the garage. You can’t get more budget friendly than free!
I kept seeing these amazing garlands on Instagram and Pinterest and this is by far one of my favorite DIYs! $8 for a few simple supplies that can be found at most any craft store and about 45 minutes and done! I’ve made a few more of these as gifts for friends and I love them!
Enamel ware is one of my favorite farmhouse styles to use in my decor. I was lucky enough to find a huge enamel ware bowl last summer for $5 at a junk store and then another this year for $12. Drill a few holes in the bottom and voila – you have a planter!
These are my favorite DIY so far – we are working on a master bedroom makeover on a budget and I made these cage pendant lights for about $40 for both of them! These are simple, budget friendly, and they go perfectly on our new shiplap wall!
