The continued tough job market makes it hard to spend extra money on home decorations. Still, that is no reason to leave your walls bare and boring. You can decorate your walls easily using items you may very well have chucked in a closet collecting dust. These decorating tips will give you some ideas you can use in your home.
Special occasion clothes that have been outgrown can make great wall hangings. When looking for items to hang on the walls of your children’s rooms, look for special occasion clothes they have outgrown and hang them on decorative hangers. At a later time when you have extra decorating money, you can have these clothing items framed in a shadow box.
Use costumes to make your walls more fun. If you have been in a play or performance, or if you have any holiday or party costumes you enjoy, don’t throw them in the closet, pin the costume items to a black felt backed board and hand it on the wall.
Concert tickets and theater playbills make great wall art. If you or your kids have attended concerts and come home with playbills, programs, posters, or even ticket stubs, you can make an awesome wall-hanging by arranging these items in a simple poster frame.
Sport and hobby equipment will look great on your wall. Whether you are into guitars, flutes, and wind instruments, or bats, hockey sticks, and baseball bats, your equipment will make an attractive statement hanging on your wall. In addition, it will make organization of your equipment easier. All you need to do is install hooks for these items on the wall so they can be removed from the wall, and replaced there when you are done with them. This way your rooms will represent who you are and what you do, and your closets will be less cluttered.
Remember as you look through your closet, just choose items you love, and don’t discriminate based on what someone else may or may not like. Keep in mind that gancy shoes can be displayed on shelves, jewelry can be arranged on a dark canvas, decorative boxes from the back of your closet, will look much nicer on a dining room shelf.
