These chic design ideas will inspire you to transform your whole interior without breaking the bank!

1. Decorative Tree Branch With Wax Flowers

You’ll Need:

  • tree branch
  • melted candle wax
  • water
  • dish soap

Here's How:

Put the tree branch into a vase. Pour the melted candle wax into one bowl, and the water and dish soap to another bowl. Actively mix the water and dish soap together, dip 3 of your fingers into the mixture, then stick them directly into the melted candle wax. Place your coated fingertips on the tree branch, firmly press down, and gently slide your fingers out of the wax coating. Repeat this process in several places. The wax imprints of your fingertips look just like flower petals!

2.Perfectly Even Curtain Pleats

You'll Need:

3. Headrest Pillows For Your Wall

You'll Need:

You'll Need:

  • anti-slip mat
  • hot glue

  • 2 adhesive hooks

Attach the adhesive hooks to a spot on the wall near to where you normally do your makeup or get dressed. Hang the link chain from the adhesive hooks, and now you have space to arrange your earrings in any way you want.
