30 Dollar Store Home Decor DIY Ideas
I am totally in love with this hand painted terracotta pot by The Beauty DoJo.
As somebody who really loves plants and greenery around the home, I am always looking for pretty ways to house my plants and this design is so classy looking.
The rope trim gives the perfect finishing touch and I love how you can customize the text to give any message you’d like.
At least in the dollar store where I live, I never bother buying the tea towels they sell as they’re not very absorbent.
It’s such a shame because often the patterns and designs they have are lovely, I just don’t find them very practical for their intended use.
Finally I have a reason to pick some up as this brilliant tutorial by The Wood Grain Cottage looks super simple to follow. Brilliant if you’ve been looking for a brand new sewing project!
These marble style painted mugs by The Sweetest Occasion are a wonderful project to test out with your children.
This is also a great way to use up any old bottles of nail polish that have been hanging around the house for some time and the finished project will add an cheery burst of colour to your crockery cupboards!
Wreaths from home decor stores can cost an absolute fortune. Wreaths don’t just have to be for Christmas time anymore!
Pinterest is filled with beautiful floral wreath ideas which can be enjoyed all year round – just like this simple but remarkable design from By Erin Elizabeth.
These beautiful lanterns require just five simple picture frames from the dollar store, and look just like the ones you would see in stores like Urban Outfitters and Anthropology for ten times the price.
These would look stunning in any room in your home or could even be used as centerpieces at a wedding reception!
Check out the full tutorial over at Grosgrainfab.
These Anthropology inspired book ends from Love Grows Wild are a stroke of genius. I’ve seen identical items in high end homeware stores for £50+.

You could copy the cutlery style design that Bree has used, or make yours personal perhaps by embossing with your family names, your favourite flower or animal or even a poem or prayer verse that has special meaning to you.
These decorative topiary trees from Home Made Lovely are a brilliant alternative if you don’t have the budget to buy real plants for your home.

Plus, if you don’t have a particularly green thumb then you won’t need to worry about keeping these ones alive!
This pebble bath mat from Curbly is so easy and cheap to recreate and looks just like some I’ve seen in luxury spa houses.
You could save even more money on this project by collecting pebbles from your own garden or local park for a more natural and rustic looking piece.
Enamel Painted Vases
These brightly coloured enamel painted vases from Sugar & Charm are a wonderful way to add some cheerful colour into your home.
This project is super easy to follow and you could even makeover some vases you already, own rather than buying new ones to give a new lease of life to something that you might have otherwise thrown away!
There is nothing more annoying than trying to untangle your necklaces when storing them flat in an old fashioned jewelry box.
