Are you looking to decorate your house on a budget? Or you simply want a touch of your personality and talent in your home? Well, whatever the reason maybe, here are 6 do-it-yourself (DIY) home décor ideas for your home:

Make a garden in your living room

Many of us love gardening but have no space for it so we keep potted plants in our balconies. But if you think about modern living room ideas for your home, you could have your own garden on your living room wall! You can create a green wall by placing a few wooden slabs of different lengths to create a pattern and place your potted plants on those slabs. Now, it won’t be just your TV up on the wall.


Recycle your glass bottles and jars into vases and bulbs

Take any unused glass bottles (any colour) and paint them. Fill them with water and place flowers in them to make vases. You could also use the bottles as bulbs by placing fairy lights in them and hanging them from your walls or placing them on your tables. This will add some coloured lighting to your florescent lighting.

Make a vision board

Take some excess or unused fabric you have and cover it on a wooden board. You have the option to add cotton on the board to make it like a bulletin board. Then print pictures, quotes, or any ‘visions’ of your future goals and stick them on this board. Hang this vision board in your room to remind yourself of your goals every day.

Light up your house

If you have any unused paper cups from a previous get together, string them together and place LED lights inside to make a garland of paper cups and hang them in your house. Another way to light up your home would be to place candles inside mason jars. You could decorate the jar with lace, yarn, ribbon, cloth, etc. You could also decorate the candles with henna (mehndi). These also work great as Diwali decoration ideas.

Make a floating bookshelf

Take panels of wood or metal and drill them to the corner of a wall in asymmetrical fashion. Ensure you have at least 4 or more slabs for enhanced effect. Once completed, it will look like they are floating on the wall. Then you can place your books on the slabs to complete your bookshelf.

Make a mural

A mural is a form of art directly painted or applied on a wall. If you don’t see yourself as a great artist, you could invite a friend over and paint a wall in your house with things that inspire you or come up with a theme that will add to the décor of your home.

Children playing ringa ringa roses in an open backyard in England

Great historic events that have shaped the world and changed the outlines of countries are often not recorded in memory, or so we think. Wars made sure to destroy evidence and heritage, and the ones who survived told the tale of what really happened. Folklore, albeit through oral tradition kept alive many such stories, hidden in verse, limericks, and rhymes.

Ringa-ringa-roses, a common playtime rhyme among children across the world, is an example of folklore that has survived for many centuries. It tells the story of the The Great Plague of London which ravaged the city between 1665-1666.

Certain tribes have remained matrilineal, where the decision-making power rests with the eldest female of the family.

In modern times, many social movements aim to bring reform to the society we live in, on the basis of certain existing patterns. Patriarchy is something that many aim to cleanse our cultures of, to usher in the era of social and gender equality. Despite all these so-called movements, in southern India, certain societies that patronise matriarchy have existed since before India's independence. The Nairs and Ezhavas of Kerala, and Bunts and Billavas of Karnataka are matrilineal societies that continue to thrive in a patriarchal country.

Kerala remains separate from the rest of India in many ways. Be it literacy policy, form of government, or cultural practices, this state does not always conform to the ideal that India is known for. Even so with their social structure. Certain tribes have remained matrilineal, where the decision-making power rests with the eldest female of the family.
