With the news of a pandemic and stay at home orders, many people focused on making improvements to their home and got really creative. I will say that is one thing I enjoyed, the opportunity to focus on our home and creative opportunities. This year I completed several simple DIY crafty decor projects and these are my favorite. I hope they inspire you to add some fun updates and decor items to your own home.
I love creating and making home decor items. Especially when they a simple and affordable. Here are some of my favorite craft projects of 2020.

Project #3 How to Create An Artisan Stone Look
Artisan pottery was all the rage last year and has come on strong again for this year as well. However, they can be very expensive. I decided to try creating a similar look using an old glass vase I already had and I’m so happy with how it turned out. If you are wanting to add a fun trendy piece to your decor without the expensive, this is a great project to try.
Project #4 Fairy Garden
This is such a fun project to welcome in Spring. It’s a fun one to do with kiddos too. They can learn all about gardening and use their own creativity to design it. In addition, they can learn how to care for plants and show off their beautiful creation. If you have limited space for a pretty garden or plants, making a fairy garden is another beautiful way to add some whimsey to your patio or porch. How To Create A Fairy Garden
