10 of the Laziest home DIY projects

Decorating doesn’t have to be hard. Use these simple tips to make your remodel a whole lot easier – and lazier. Your mates will be incredibly impressed and you’ll have a whole new look in just minutes or hours!

1. Funky Bulbs

Kids absolutely love this one – and best of all, its super duper easy. Simply grab a couple of permanent markers and go wild on a bulb which is easily screwed into your son or daughter’s bedroom.


2. Door Sides

Not committed to a full bright colour scheme? Pick up a tester pot at the DIY store and add a fun shade to the inner part of your door. Unexpected, cute and stylish.


3. Fireplace Candles

Wish you had a real fire but can’t quite commit? Grab some big church candles, throw them in your empty fireplace and make a super stylish focal point which will give you serious fashion credentials.


4. Disco Lampshade

This is a seriously cool hack which kids will love getting involved with. Grab a plain lampshade, smear the inside with PVA and then throw your favourite shade of glitter at it. When completely dry, re-attach and then turn on the lights for that everyday party feel!


5. Curtain Bows

Too lazy for curtain rings? No problem. Simply rig up your new window hangings with matching strips of ribbon or town fabric. Utterly effortless.


6. Teacup Planters

Not blessed with green fingers? It’s ok, us neither. Make life much prettier by planting up easy to care for succulents in charity shop teacups. It’s also a cute idea to throw some supermarket herbs in old tea tins for that vintage kitchen look.


7. Tubing Vases

When it comes to simply DIYs, spray paint is your number one best mate and this vase project is no exception. Simply chop up a bit of plumber’s tubing or better still, find some offcuts, spray gold or bronze and fill with flowers.


8. Gemstone Coasters

Gemstone slice coasters are all over the fanciest interior shops right now but honestly, we don’t need to pay £35 for a set of four. Pick up cheap geode slices online or at toyshops, coat the edges with gold nail polish and enjoy your glam look!


9. Candles

A gorgeous warm glowing candle will never go out of fashion but this simple ombre trick will add prettiness and style to your home for pence. Simply melt down a less usable candle, mix in a coloured crayon of your choice, dip and go wild!


10. Succulent Pictures

In case you hadn’t noticed by now, cacti and succulents really are all the rage right now. In the coolest interior shops in town, these amazing and modern pieces of wall art make any room look amazing. Simply pick up some plain wood fames, pack in a bit of soil and plant up small succulents. Wow friends and family with your gardening skills.
