Welcome your guests with a beautiful and colourful flower wreath on your front door. You can use fresh flowers or artificial ones to create a stunning and unique arrangement. Just grab a wreath frame, some florist wire, and your favourite blooms and you’re ready to go!

DIY terrarium

Bring the outdoors inside with a DIY terrarium. You can make a terrarium with any clear container, such as a mason jar or fishbowl. Simply layer soil, rocks, and plants to create a miniature garden that adds a pop of green to any room.

Give your walls a splash of colour and texture with fabric wall art. All you need is a canvas, some fabric, and a staple gun. Choose a fabric that complements your decor and stretch it over the canvas, securing it with staples on the back. It’s an easy and affordable way to add a statement piece to any room.
