5 minute DIY decor projects

Hi friends, today I wanted to show you my 5 minute diy decor. I think many of us are time short but we like to make our homes cozy and pleasing to the eye. Of course if you are also on a tight budget these ideas are right up your alley.

Do you love the beach? This only took literally 5 minutes to make! I already had the frame. Next I put in the paper which is cardstock that I also had in my stash. The shells were from the $2 store. I simply glued them onto the cardstock with cement glue. Cement glue is cone of my new favourite things. It sticks absolutely anything. I always seem to have problems with  my hot glue gun, does anyone else? I believe it is also Martha Stewart's favourite so it must be good!

I started this quick 5 minute mosaic {which doesn't include the drying time} because of the ornaments and crockery I always seem to be breaking!

I already had the tray and had been thinking of different options to decorate it. Then I had the brainwave to do a quick mosaic. The blue petals of the flower were from a lovely teal vase that I had broken, the white petals from a broken plate and the centres were polished stones I bought from a local hardware store. It was simply a matter of mixing the tile glue and putting it on the back of the pieces and placing them in position. I left it until the next day to apply the tile grout which was surprisingly quick to do.

My last 5 minute diy project was a timber square that I found in the Salvos. I think it was actually a serviette holder but I'm not sure. Does anyone else have an idea what it could have been used for?
I decided I wanted it as a small display shelf.

I already had the small terracotta pot and saucer which I dry brushed with white paint and bought a faux plant from the $2 shop. The shelf itself I simply dry brushed  with white homemade chalk paint. I tied a piece of yarn around the pot and it was done.

I hope these 5 minute DIYs have inspired you to get creative. Who knows what you can accomplish! Until next time, take care and I'll have some more craft ideas for you to try
