DIY Decor from Pinterest

DIY Pinterest decor projects eco-friendly

The past few weeks I’ve been obsessing a lot more on DIY projects and possible eco-friendly decor for Chris and I‘s future home. Here are a few that I’m dying to try.

  • DIY paper towel roll art: I’ve seen a lot of varieties of this project (see more on my DIY pin board). You can even spray paint the rolls to match your decor theme. 
  • DIY t-shirt rag rug: I’ve actually completed a rag rug project on DIY Friday in the past but this one looks like it would be a lot sturdier. Now I just need to put aside all of my old shirts until I have enough material.
  • Found wood DIY cake stand: This looks perfect for my future earthy home! I’ll keep an eye out for spare stumps when I go on my walks.
  • DIY owl Christmas ornaments: There is a lot more projects involving toilet paper rolls and paper towel rolls then I thought! I’ve already started to store some of these left overs in a box so I can make some cute owls this year.

What DIY projects have you found and bookmarked for later? My dream home and DIY pin board is getting pretty full!

    All the toilet paper roll projects remind me of my days in Girl Scouts (the second time around, 10th-12th grade. ha.) My leader had TONS of them in her basement, like I had never seen that many toilet paper rolls in one place in my life tons. I think we mainly just used them for napkin rings we decorated as community service for community meals for holidays.

      Also the tshirt rug seems really cool. I’m working on a quilt from my old high school shirts and have already cut out the pictures and have a huge bag of the rest of the shirts just sitting around waiting to be used and that could be the perfect solution!

        That sounds so awesome! A quilt is a great idea. Can you send me a picture on Twitter (@RebeccaKSampson) or Instagram (RebeccaKelsey)? I’d love to see it.

        Kindness is the best accessory,
