10 DIY Home Décor Projects to Get You Through Winter

Revive your home this winter with our top 10 DIY home décor projects from around the web.

Forget winter doldrums! Power through the cold and the gray with these fun and inspiring DIY home décor projects.

1. Boring Cabinet Redo

Skill level: Moderate

Why we love it: We all know those store-bought, low-personality furniture pieces. They’re great on the budget, but not so good for making a style impact. Naomi, of Design Manifest, saw the potential in two boring-and-basic dressers and turned them into a one-of-a-kind TV console.

2. Sweet Fabric Votives

Skill level: Beginner

Why we love it: Not only does this DIY home décor project from Claire at Fellow Fellow offer a perfect way to put those favorite fabric scraps to good use, but it also reuses glass jars in a unique way. And if making Mother Earth happy weren’t enough, these pretty little beauties create a sweet display for dinner parties -- or any occasion.

3. Yarn-Wrapped Frames

Skill level: Beginner

Why we love it: Even home accessories need a winter sweater! Rachel, of 52 Weeks Project, gives old frames a new, cozier life by dressing them in her favorite colors of yarn.

4. Dip-Dyed Vases

Skill level: Beginner

Why we love it: You know those basic, clear vases you get with florist arrangements? Here’s another idea from 52 Weeks Project that’s a quick-and-easy way to add some artistic style to them (and your interior!).

5. Geometic Duct Tape Lamp Shade

Skill level: Beginner

Why we love it: The end result of Justina Blakeney’s project is an attention grabber that you won’t find in any home décor store. And all it takes to achieve the look is some duct tape and a little creativity.

6. DIY Stair Runner

Skill level: Advanced

Why we love it: Jenny Komenda at Little Green Notebook gave her stairs a refreshing new look by ripping out the existing carpeting, refinishing the stairs (for the eventually exposed wood floor) and laying down affordable area rugs to create a sleek runner. Whether or not you have carpeted or wood stairs, this is an easy way to spruce up a bland stairwell.

7. Books Headboard

Skill level: Moderate

Why we love it: Reading in bed has never looked so stylish. The most difficult part of this DIY home décor project from Design Every Day’s Kassandra is finding the perfect selection of books to fit your needs. But the end result is a stunner -- and would make a great accent wall too.

8. Rope Vases

Skill level: Beginner

Why we love it: Want to repurpose or give a new look to old vases? Justina Blakeney has another great idea that’s even easy enough for kids to do. These rope vases will add a unique rustic style to your interior.

9. Refinishing Furniture

Skill level: Advanced

Why we love it: Jenny Komenda’s easy DIY instructions for stripping paint from vintage furniture (to refinish and beautify a console table) is a helpful how-to for any homeowner who has a beloved piece of furniture or a random vintage find that needs a little TLC. Take on this DIY to check off that “I’ll get to it someday” home décor project you keep putting off.

10. Antique Mirror Project

Skill level: Moderate

Why we love it: Cheryle Rhuda and Danika Herrick came up with O’verlays, an awesomely affordable way to add architectural detail to furniture. They can also help you achieve that antique mirror-frame look. If you’ve been eyeing that pricey vintage mirror at your local antiques store, take on this project and it’ll be a thing of the past (yet again).
