Beautifying your abode can be beautifully simple. Sometimes all you need is a permanent marker and a big idea. If you’ve been talking to our clever mortgage advisers in Bury St Edmunds and have decided to start pinching your pennies, this post is perfect for adding some loveliness to your interiors when you’re feeling crafty but don’t want to break the bank. So, without further ado, here are six super simple permanent marker projects you can make for next to nothing!
1. Personalized Pillows
We love these personalized permanent marker pillows. Make sure you choose a fabric market to ensure you get nice, crisp letters and pop some cardboard underneath the section you’re working on to make certain the ink doesn’t bleed through to the other side. Otherwise, the design is totally up to you! Use your favorite lyrics, poem, line from a book or go crazy with a completely wild drawn design.
2. Line Art Lampshade
This design might look artistic and impossible to recreate but lampshades are the perfect material for using stencils! Simply print out your desired design and use a permanent marker to draw it on. Et voilà! Picture perfect line art lampshades in your favorite style.
3. Wonderful Windows
Here’s a very cute décor idea, perfect for a quirky space or a children’s bedroom. Simply get your creative juices flowing and draw some pretty permanent marker windows onto your walls – then add a window box or two! Gorgeous! (We’d recommend drawing lightly in pencil first to make sure you get it right).
4. Scribble Mug
Take plain white mugs to the next level with a little bit of permanent marker action. Create a collection or make every mug in your home entirely unique. The design you choose is totally up to you!
5. Brilliant Bulbs
If decorating your lampshade wasn’t enough, why not take your permanent marker to your light bulbs? These fun bulbs look really pretty both turned on and turned off.
6. Dalmatian Decor
Plain white furniture from an affordable shop like Ikea can be given a great big, personality-infused makeover with a fabric marker. Use stencils or draw freehand, just make your mark on your home!
