5 Amazing DIY Projects – Budget friendly and you can do any of these in one day!

DIY Floral Hoop Wreath

I created this simple wreath after seeing so many beautiful ideas on Instagram.  I needed something for our bedroom makeover and I wanted greenery, budget friendly, and easy to DIY.  This is a perfect project for a quick afternoon DIY that makes a big impact.

DIY Pendant Lights and Brackets

These are by far my favorite DIY to date.  I was looking for new lighting for our master bedroom update (you can read all about our results including new shiplap!! – Click here)  I couldn’t find exactly what I wanted that I could afford so I made my own for about $40 total for both!!

DIY Wooden Crate

I decided on a whim one afternoon to DIY a wooden crate – You can never have enough storage!  I used scrap wood and some leftover handles from an old furniture project.  This one was completely free to me since I used any leftover stain/wood/nails that I already had laying in the garage.  You can’t get more budget friendly than free!

$8 DIY Wooden Bead Garland

I kept seeing these amazing garlands on Instagram and Pinterest and this is by far one of my favorite DIYs!  $8 for a few simple supplies that can be found at most any craft store and about 45 minutes and done!  I’ve made a few more of these as gifts for friends and I love them!

DIY Farmhouse Style Planter

Enamel ware is one of my favorite farmhouse styles to use in my decor.  I was lucky enough to find a huge enamel ware bowl last summer for $5 at a junk store and then another this year for $12.  Drill a few holes in the bottom and wallah – you have a planter!
