This will not only be good for your budget but also the environment. Below you will find a few skills you might want to learn or brush up if you want to save money on your home decor. 

1. Woodworking and Carving 

You don’t need a lot of space to upcycle furniture and make something beautiful from reclaimed materials. From high-grade furniture to wood pallets, there are several cheap options to choose from. You can, for example, create an open shelf in a cottage style, using only a wood pallet. All you need is the right tools and a bit of imagination.

The good news is that there are some cheap suppliers online and you can pick up any material and low-cost threads to display your family members’ name or favorite animal in a sophisticated way. You might even create a picture and frame it if you feel like. 

3. Pottery 

To create a display cabinet in your kitchen or larder, and decorate your jars and your plates, you might try your hands at pottery. There are loads of online classes giving you the basics, and you might even enroll in a college course to master the skills and find out which equipment and materials will serve your DIY projects the best. You might create your own mugs with personalized patterns, or a collection of plates with everyone’s name to display in the kitchen. 

4. Knitting 

No matter if you would like to knit a baby blanket or a cushion cover, there will be something to do every night when you are curling up in front of the TV. It is a very relaxing activity and you can combine unusual colors to show off your personality and taste. If you would like to make something beautiful, you might create a drapery for above the windows, or a wall covering showing off a unique pattern.
