9 ways to decorate your home without dishing out all your money

03 November 2015, 10:08Carmen Williams

You know all those empty wine bottles you have? Turn them into vases! It can be a bit dangerous, so (like all those kiddie shows warned you) get a responsible adult (yes, I mean you) to do this.

And you can turn the corks into a funky pin board.

These cool candlestick candy jars can be changed up to go with your theme, or you could even print out a few pictures and pop them inside for when you’re short on candy.

Use your old toilet paper rolls (yes, you read that right) to make a cool piece of wall art. The spray paint and glue will set you back about R60, but think of it as an investment.

This mosaic mirror is a bit more complicated than some of the other ideas on this list, but it’s still a fun project, and your final product will look great.

Download vintage posters for free and frame them to use in your home. Go to www.freevintageposters.com/. They have some really cool stuff.

Use an old shutter as a post holder. If you don’t have one lying in the garage, or a friend doesn’t have one to give you, then you can pick one up at a scrap place. Or try antique stores. They’ll probably sell it to you for a very cheap price. All you need to do is sand it down a bit and maybe spray it a cool colour.

Make your own scented candles. You get to choose the designs/colours, plus there are bragging rights.

This easy DIY wine rack is seriously cool, and cheap. Plus, you get to choose the colour and design. Or even give it as a gift.
