Making your own high-end home decorations is a great way to save money, while also adding a personal touch to your decor. Crafting your own home decor items can be a fun and creative way to spruce up your space, without spending a fortune on expensive brands. With some basic supplies, you can create custom decorations that would rival any high-end brand.

Frugality is an important factor when it comes to crafting your own home decor. With the right materials and a bit of creativity, you can create beautiful and unique pieces that will not only save you money, but also give your home a special touch. From handmade curtains and rugs to wall art and sculptures, there are so many ways to add a personal touch to your home without breaking the bank.

The best part of making your own home decor items is that no one needs to know that you duped a high end brand by making it yourself. With a little bit of effort and creativity, you can create something special that looks like it was bought from a high-end store. You can also save money by using materials you already have, such as old fabric, wallpaper, or paint. This way, you can give an old item a new life and create something unique.

And we show you how to with this inspired storage crate made from Dollar Tree supplies!

To begin, paint the wooden container brown (I opted not to paint the inside as when I fill it with flowers the flowers cover the inside)

Once totally dried, apply strips of hot glue down one side of the wooden box and push hard to connect the wooden crate to the bottom piece of the plastic cutting board.

Then, using the little flower pieces from the rub on the design page, cut out the farmhouse. Take care not to remove the backside until you are ready to use it since it may attach to something if you place it on it.

Remove the backing and push firmly onto the cutting board’s upper part. I rubbed it in with my fingernail, but you could also use a credit card or the edge of scissors.

Make a bow with a 6 inch length of ribbon. I made the two loops and then turned the pieces to make a center piece, then dabbed a dab of hot glue in the middle to get the ribbon to stick to itself, and then added a piece to the back to push firmly into the cutting board. I gathered the ends and sliced at an angle.

So there you have it! Making your own home decorations is a great way to express your creativity and save money at the same time. With just a few supplies and a bit of imagination, you can create stunning pieces that will bring a special touch to your home. So why not give it a try and see what you can come up with?
