Colorful DIY Projects
Add a little color to your home with these creative DIY projects starring paint, fabric, embellishments, and more.
1. Pom-Poms for the Win
Make a stylish addition to a purchased throw by adding jumbo pom-poms to the edges. Use an extra-large pom-pom maker to make 4½-inch balls, leaving long tails when tying each one off. Pin the yarn tails along the edge of the throw, roll the hemmed edge to enclose the tails, and topstitch.
2. Message Me
A handwritten message trumps iMessage or Snapchat. Case in point? The coolest message board ever. It’s simply glass that’s been painted on the back and framed. Messages penned in dry-erase markers show up clearly and erase easily.
3. Mirror Magic
Sometimes a little color can work wonders for a worn out piece. The shape of this mirror was eye-catching, but the wood was in poor shape. Primer and two coats of latex paint brought out the best in the piece. A quote, scrolled on with a paint pen, transforms the aging mirror into a piece of art.
