Hello everybody, here we go again after the break I took. Last week I dedicated myself to rest because I couldn’t think straight. Also, with this, all crazy stuff going to the world did hurt a big part of my blogging work. It took some time to adjust everything while taking a rest to fill up my energy. Today’s post is about how to make a quick decoration for the house.
It might sound a bit weird because now that people are stuck at home, they want something to spend time on. However, spending time on long projects takes a lot of resources. And now with this situation, I’m not sure it will be easy to restore when all is finished. So I thought of doing this idea of making small and quick DIY projects.
I was working on a big project before this one which will be an upgrade to one of my old ideas. It will be a surprise when the lockdown is lifted, and I restored all the items, you know. Looking at the situation, it will be a little white until then.
Also, going on trips was an idea for me to support this topic(the DY) and enjoy exploring the world. But I think now that we can’t go anywhere, the DIY will help until traveling is open again. And I’m coming back to a different city and start moving around from one city to another. However, for now, the week will be filled with DIY posts instead of one DIY and one travel.
About this idea
It took me some time to think of something easy and quick because I’m used to doing long and big projects. But how to make a quick decoration for the house wasn’t so long. Like when you run fast so much and want to run slow, it kinda feels weird, you know haha. My mindset is on a big scale and thinking of small ideas felt a little difficult.
Anyway, this decoration is going to be a simple touch to your house and add a nice look with the origami flower which you have seen before in my posts if you have read my previous DIY posts. It’s amazing and looks almost exactly the same as the real one.
Materials and tools required
- Glue gun
- White paper (thick or A4)
- Colored paper (Red, and blue)
Here are the things that I will use how to make a quick decoration for the house. Simple and yet not so expensive tools and materials. As you continue reading, you will know how we can make something amazing out of these.
This tutorial on how to make a quick decoration for the house. I used A4 paper… You will see the cardboard lines. Therefore, if you have thick papers. That would be even better. Because you will have a good layer.
I’ve done it before and I did it again. We can place anywhere this in the house. Maybe on the desk if you are a business owner working from home like me. If I have my own house, I would be able to put decorations like this in different spots and test which one is the best.
I’m going to use the same stuff I used in my previous DIY posts but with less amount and size. It’s like a challenge about what can you do with a few things in your hand.
Anyway, let’s get started and see How to make a quick decoration for the house. I hope you enjoy this DIY craft idea. How to make a quick decoration for the house post.
The items for this project, and How to make a quick decoration for the house is easy. And I’ pretty sure that everyone has done it before. However, if you haven’t done it before, there are a lot of tutorials on how to make a paper flowers. But you can also check this tutorial.
I think you will get it from the first time. So, this won’t take a lot of your time. And you will get some cool from it and that’s how to make a quick decoration for the house. Don’t worry if you don’t have a lot of time to spend on something like this.
Also, the cardboard on this tutorial is thin. However, if you have a cardboard layer with little bit of thickness that would be cool. Because it wasn’t cool with this type of cardboard. Well, if you don’t have the right layer thickness. You can add another layer of cardboard and glue it if the cardboard is too thin.
How to make a quick decoration for the house
Here we go. The usual beginning I do with every project. Which’s doing the main pieces for the project and the base would be the first one. This is not new, but the size is. Because we need to consume fewer resources during this pandemic.
Also, I used different glue this time because I’m about to run out of my best glue ever. And that is one of the things that got affected by this situation. I’m going to talk about it in the next post and share why the one I used in my previous posts is my favorite.
Before we jump to the next one, I just want to mention it in case you didn’t notice. I no longer will be using the base I made for photo shooting my projects. Because I got so many projects right now and will try to decorate a bigger place and background for my next posts.
I forgot to save the base measurement. And I’m not sure how to measure for you guys. However, you can make it not so big and not so small. Because there is no specific measures to this as long as it’s good to hold the rest of the items on how to make a quick decoration for the house.
These are simple but also awesome looking for DIY craft house decoration. Something I like about DIY decor crafts like this is not so complicated. And that means you don’t have to sweat to craft it. However, I also like to craft complicated DIY crafts as well. Because it’s fun haha.
As you can see the base, I already added the white layer to it. I forgot to take pictures of it before that. But the walls or sides of the DIY craft. I got a picture of them before adding the white layer to it. You can check it next step on how to make a quick decoration for the house.
The sides of the craft
You probably have seen the full DIY project from the thumbnail, but the next item would be the sides. I thought of doing three, but I made two square-shaped walls because that would be enough. The backside doesn’t matter for this project.
This is a new concept I thought of it. And you can judge it at the end of this tutorial on how to make a quick decoration for the house. The back and front are open and just cover the sides and the top because I will put something on the top. Keep reading to know what I will put.
I made each wall to be 9cm based on the main floor (the base). But it could be any measure you like as long as it’s perfect. I usually do bigger than that (15cm and above for the base) because it will be holding more than two pieces. This time I got an idea of how to add more than one item to a small space. I will talk about it in the next steps.
Since I was low on materials and tools. For me to be able to finish this tutorial on How to make a quick decoration for the house. I had to come up with something new and you will see what I did to hold two items using fewer resources.
This is one of the main items if I were to specify the important items and the less important. It’s the flower that will be added to the base later in the post. I have done this a couple of times before. However, it wasn’t part of the main items and I thought it would make a good decoration for the house as the main part.
Something I got in my mind while doing this DIY craft that I would like to mention. Things that I don’t know how to do, I usually look it up on the internet and follow the instructions. However, I already watched how to do the flower before but when I was about to do it for this project, I kinda doubted myself and wanted to learn how to do it one more time.
Well, for the flower, I shared the tutorial for you guys on how to make it. It’s pretty easy and simple. You just might not get it from the first one attempt, but I’m sure the second one it will be it. Unless it seems difficult for you and might take more time. That depends on how well you observe and follow the instructions.
The thing is, sometimes our doubt makes us weak. I decided to try it myself without going back to any tutorial and I did it. And for that, I would like to remind everyone to not doubt themselves and just do whatever they want. Start with simple ideas that you could do, but you have seen it one time. Because big stuff might be a big problem if you mess up on your first try.
As you can see, you will see when I show the whole project. What type flower this will be. But I’m sure you can guess it from just looking at the colors haha. Also, this is optional and you can change to another type of flowers if you want.
The blue cube
Another item that considers being one of the main parts of this project. There was no concept for this but I thought that a blue cube would look a nice touch to it haha. And you will see how I will place it at the end of this tutorial on how to make a quick decoration for the house.
So you have two options. One, you make things side by side which takes space depending on how many items. And the other option is to make one above the other and that’s how I saved space and made a small base haha. This means we will have two bases with the same measures. And the sides to make sure it holds strong.
Here is another item that I forgot to share measurement, but it’s easy to measure it. You need to measure little smaller than the base. This way, you can place it and have enough space. If you want to cover the entire base with that. I don’t think it would look good.
I used thick blue paper to add to this cube. However, it’s not really important because you can use normal blue paper as well. Well, I just thought to try it but it wasn’t the best when it comes to gluing it to the cube. It’s difficult to fold it, you know.
Anyway, right now I’m going to show you the process of making these together and show you how to make a quick decoration for the house (full project). Enjoy and will be back after…
Here is how to make a quick decoration for the house.
And here we go. The final look is shown in the picture above and it looks simple but nice. The background is not that good now, but I’m going to work my way to a better-looking one. However, this could make a good decoration for the house and could be placed anywhere as long as it’s appropriate for it.
I got pictures of the front side but it got deleted and couldn’t share them with the other items at the beginning of this post. However, it was the last touch I added to this decoration, and it’s easily made. There are some moments and steps that I forget to take pictures. But this time pictures got deleted by accident.
You can see the two items and it might not look so professional and amazing. But it’s a good decoration for the house, and mainly it’s a good DIY craft to pass time on. You can do this and don’t waste so many resources as well.
Also, the placement of the cube as well. You can see how I did it. You need to make sure that you glue it well. This way, it won’t fall and you can have it for as long as possible. Kids can break easily it. Therefore, you need to make sure kids don’t play around it.
