The people's choice for year's best DIY projects

  • Tips & Tricks
Dec 30, 2019

DIY videos are one of the most popular segments of beautifulhomes.com. That is the most important lesson we've learned from looking at the 'engagement' (forgive the digital-speak) numbers of our readers. And home improvement and accessory videos are especially loved. Are you, our readers, recreating some of the ideas suggested in these stories? Tell us, because that's the kind of thing we love to know.

In this video, Leah Umrigar of Green Bowl, recreates a simple terrarium with pebbles, a few accessories and a pretty indoor plant. She also offers up ideas on other terrariums she created and points out that they make great personalised gifts. Indeed!

 

 

2.    Create a faux terrazzo wall with help from the kids

The treatment which is created with chips of marble and granite stones set into concrete and polished, has a distinct personality and the irregularities of its components make every setting unique and seems personalized. But of course, terrazzo is an expensive and involved process that takes time and effort to create. Not the faux version, though. In this video, the stylists and their kiddie helpers recreate the effect of terrazzo with a bit of tape and spit (we're kidding). Bit of tape, chalk and some roller brushes, for a cool wall treatment…
