(Last Updated On: April 4, 2021)

Hello and welcome to another post of this week. The last day of the week. Yay!! Well, not the last day, but for my schedule haha. Today I’m going to do the first-ever project in 2021 with something new. This is Decorate your desk with this awesome DIY 2021 decoration.

I thought to start 2021 with a nice decoration that represents the year. Like I said there will be something new to me. That means the first time I have done it since I started DIY projects.

Today I got a good project for you guys. It’s been a while since I did something new. It was interesting to try this, and I will explain how I came up with this idea. Keep reading to find out.

It might be something that I will do more in the future since I nailed it. Well, nailed it a little bit haha. I was surprised that it can be possible, to be honest. and thought might not work.

Also, before diving into the post and show you guys the finished project. I would like to take a moment to thank you for the positive feedback on my projects. It means a lot to me.

And thank you for the support. I’m going to do my best to keep it going and get more awesome DIY projects. You can subscribe tnelow o the blog and stay tuned for new posts in the future.

Well, starting off. If you missed my previous post where I showed some of the first steps of this project. It was my first ever talk-over post. You can join the conversation after this post if you want.

Anyways, finishing off from where I left off in my previous. Which was showing the numbers.

The decoration will represent 2021 with something new I made for the first time. So I cut all the four numbers and wrapped the previous post lol. Make sure to check what I did first if you feel confused.

So the project will be made out of cardboard and paper. Which is the most used thing on all my projects haha.

It took me more than I expected to finish this project which is something nice to pass time on. And that’s good if you are looking to spend your time on something fun haha.

Required pieces

Well, to add to what I showed you guys in my previous post. I’m going to use more things. And here I will list them below. Things are easy to get and can make good use of them.

The stand pieces.  Decorate your desk with this awesome DIY 2021 decoration
The cardboard belts. Decorate your desk with this awesome DIY 2021 decoration

Here are two of the important things that I’m going to use. The first one is going to be used to make four stands which as you can tell, are made out of cardboard haha.

I cut small pieces of the cardboard to make a box out of it. This is easy and we all know how it’s done. Well, I make these because I’m not sure if I can buy these stands as I want them, you know.

The second picture above is something I call “a cardboard belt”. I know I made belts out of papers haha. I’m using the word as a reference to any belt. As it has the same look, you know.

The stands

As I said. I will use four stands for this project, and this will be to put the numbers on.

I want to make sure it’s visible when I add the last and final touch to the base. So this is why I lift them up a little bit using the stand.

Make them as easy as making a box and that is simple and quick. As you can see in the pictures above. I just glued the sides and covered the top. The measures depend on how long the number.

I made each number 5cm wide and 10cm high which in my opinion, perfect size.

The finished look of the stand without the layer.

It should look like this as you can see in the picture above. Don’t mind the black and white color haha. I’m going to add another layer over it in a bit.

The numbers

Moving on to the next thing in the project. Which is the numbers and this is one of the main pieces of this decoration.

I wanted to make the numbers with two sides and thicker. So I used the belts to glue the two sides. As you can see in the picture above.

Make sure to glue the belts on the entire number. So when adding the other side, it will be thicker and stronger.

This is like my most used way of doing the 3D numbers haha. I used it many times before.

It should look like this as you can see in the picture. I glued the belts on the entire number.

This should be enough for the numbers, but I still need to add the layers which will be a little later.

I did this to all the numbers of 2021 and it’s easy. Just repeated the same on all of it.

A group picture of the numbers

Here is a group picture of all the numbers finished. It’s easy but might take a little bit to finish haha. They are all still not good as it should in a few seconds, but I can say it’s all done for the numbers.

Now moving to the new item or new idea that I added to this decoration which something I came up with last-second haha.

The fountain

Well, for the first time ever. I made a fountain out of cardboard and paper haha. As I said, it was a last-second idea and it was a good idea lol. Let me tell you that.

The finished look of the fountain will be revealed at the end of the post. Which you will see in like few seconds haha. But I will tell you how I got the idea.

At first, I was going to do something simple and easy which I do all the time. And that would be like a star or flower. But I thought why not try something better.

That’s when I started looking for ideas. I kept imagining things while searching on the internet. And for a moment, I paused and imagined myself turning things in real life into cardboard and paper versions.

So I started looking and found the best thing would be the fountain. And that how I came up with this idea. I kept looking at a found design while making it with cardboard and paper haha.

You will see what I ended up with in the finished look of this project.

The top of the fountain. Decorate your desk with this awesome DIY 2021 decoration

Here is a picture of the top of the fountain. At first, I wasn’t sure if there is a blue fountain, and apparently, you can find it but not sure where haha. So I decided to make it blue.

Before showing you guys the finished look. Let me show you the colored version of the items or things that will be in the finished look.

  1. Nice use of the stands to elevate the numbers! I love the colored circles, reminds me of confetti during a New Year’s celebration. Very creative work!

  2. Wow! I liked this DIY so much. I am going to do this with my daughter. I am glad that it reuses old cardboard and turns it into something that’s useful.

  3. I used to be very creative with my hands when I was a kid but I haven’t done anything in years. I’ll take up this challenge and see if I’ve still got it πŸ™‚

  4. I have a lot of cardboard at home so this is definitely a DIY I can do plus it’s really motivating to work when you have a good decor in your desk! Great idea!

  5. This looks like a lot of fun!! Always looking for new DIY projects to keep myself occupied! Thanks for sharing:)

    1. It doesn’t cost that. These are things that can be found in the house. Cardboard and paper mainly. Scissor, and glue, and other tools to work with it which is not expensive.

  6. cool ideas very creative….it makes your time more useful creating stuff like this rather than be on social media the whole day…flirting on fb and Instagram….well just saying its just my own opinion

  7. I love your desk decoration! My work desk could definitely do with having something fun on it to make it look a bit nicer. I liked the added touch of the fountain too! x
