The White Rented Walls Challenge part 2: A splash of color

6 Oct

Continuing yesterday’s post, here are some ideas for those of you who want to decorate your walls but are limited due to renting agreements. Today I’m going after a colorful, funnier look, but again, under a limited budget.

I’m a big fan of Native American art, so I got to start with a beautiful cultural symbol from the Huichol people (from Western Mexico). It’s called the Ojo de Dios (meaning God’s Eye) and all you need is some sticks (at least two) and thread in different colors. For the basic steps you can see this how-to video and when you get the hang of it, go ahead and try this complex version. It’s stunning!

Other project with sticks is this one on the free people blog where you paint it in bright colors to give a wonderful effect. And this bamboo chime is so vibrant that will remind you of warm sunny days even in the strict winter. To round up this post I choose a cute sweet project that I made recently for my little cousin’s birthday party. The result was amazing with so many different flowers all over the place! The original tutorial shows how to make a paper pom pom. To do the flower just use 4 sheets of paper instead of 8, and open to one of the sides only.
