Who says you have to spend a ton of money to decorate your home? There are plenty of ways you can decorate your home for free or at a very low-cost. These tips can provide a big change and update to your home. Check out these 10 tips on how you can decorate your home for free.
1. Rearrange Your Furniture
Shop your home for furniture pieces. The accent chair that is ignored in one room may look fabulous in another room. Don’t feel the need to stick to traditional pieces in each room. Feel free to move furniture around. You may be surprised with the finished look.
2. Decorate Using Old Keys
I love using old keys in my decor. You can hang them on a wall, put in a frame, or use as an accent item on a table or tray. The older the better.
Your most favorite items can be used in your homes decor. Do you have a fancy pair of cheetah stilettos that you can no longer wear? Use them as a design element on your dresser.
4. Use Old Books to Decorate
Old books can be used in almost every room of your home. Consider stacking a few near your fireplace, dresser, desk, and/or bookshelf. Don’t feel the need to purchase expensive books from an accessory store. Use the ones you already own.
Conducting a major declutter may not seem like a way to decorate your home, but the effects will display a new home. You’ll be surprise how decluttering can actually showcase the items you want to be seen. Having too much clutter in your home actually takes away from its potential.
6. Frame and Hang Calendar Pictures
Pictures on calendars can be very beautiful and a unique way to have affordable wall art. My son (just like most boys his age) love Minecraft. I couldn’t fine any pictures I liked for his room so I ordered a Minecraft calendar from Amazon. I cut the pictures out of the calendar in different sizes and framed them in inexpensive frames. The results was perfect.
7. Repurpose Rooms
I am a big fan of repurposing rooms. Don’t feel like you need to use rooms for their intended purpose. The home is yours to use as you see fit. In my room, I converted a closet into a fully functioning home office. Check out the You Tube video HERE.

8. Use Flowers, Fruit, or Rocks As CenterpiecesWhen life gives you lemons, use them to decorate. Click To Tweet
Don’t be afraid to use everyday items in your home’s decor for unique centerpieces. For the holidays, use pine cones as a table centerpiece. A bowl of lemons or oranges can be a very beautiful and refreshing centerpiece for your kitchen table.
9. Print your Own Printables
Just like calendar pictures, you can also print your own printables to create art. You can even use an adult coloring worksheet or one of frame the art you create from those art and wine events.
10. Create Your Own Pinterest Project
Consider using those family fun pinterest projects for your home’s art. They can be fun projects to do as a family and also a beautiful home decor project for your home. A few weeks ago, me and my 11-year-old created a star burst project which we hung in my workshop. We had so much fun. We received the kit from Keitha, the Bajan Texan at www.homemadeluxe.com. Check out our video of the project HERE.
