DIY Wall Decor Idea for Newlyweds

It’s been months since you’ve moved to your new place and your walls are still as bare ever. Staring at the blank walls gives you designer’s itch, but you think the money will be better spent elsewhere. Don’t put off interior decorating anymore! There are a few DIY wall décor ideas that are both affordable and beautiful.

If you received one too many sets of china for your wedding, chances are they’re still sitting around unused. Unless you plan to regularly host fancy dinners in order to use them, why not sacrifice one set as wall décor? You can buy disc hangers and arrange the plates in symmetrical or asymmetrical patterns that will be a treat to the eye.

You can also re-purpose any old window into a vintage picture frame. Just get reprints of your wedding pictures and re-size them to fit the individual panes. Secure the pictures with scotch tape and hang the window-cum-picture frame on the wall.

Lastly, if an interesting fabric design catches your eye, you can buy a few yards of it and turn it into wall décor.  Ask your new hubby to cut a piece of plywood, wrap the cloth around it, staple down the loose ends at the back, and voila—textured wall decor. (Pro-tip: You can also use a Styrofoam board if hubby isn’t too handy with power tools.)

Getting wall decorations doesn’t have to be bank-breaking. Remember, blank walls are blank canvasses that you can make interesting with a little creativity.

Staying Positive with Solid Inspirational Wall Decor

Staying positive is a skill you develop and there are simple things you can do to strengthen your positivity muscles. For starters, just smile. Smiling naturally releases tension in the body and science backs this up: frowning uses more muscles than smiling

Another simple tip is to say “Thank You.” Doing so forces you to focus on things you are grateful for, rather than dwelling on negative thoughts. Surrounding yourself with positive reminders, like inspirational wall décor motifs, can also boost your mood, especially at home.

Happiness is a habit and positivity is key to it. While it’s hard to see the upside during tough times, you can always choose how to respond to life’s difficulties. The next time you’re feeling down, why not smile or look at some inspirational wall decorations to keep yourself positive?
