DIY Minimal Wall-hanging

Hello

I have been wanting a more simple wall hanging in my room for a little while now. Previously, a dream catcher was hanging there but it started to bother me and made the wall feel a little too busy for my liking. I wanted something simple, beautiful and functional.

I did some searching on Pinterest and made a simple hanging based off inspiration I found whilst searching. Mine holds my favourite Instax Mini prints, so I can admire them every day.

Its quick and easy, so lets jump right in.

You will need a bamboo chopstick, a bit of string, a few mini pegs and some mini art prints, photos or Instax prints that you love.

Cut a piece of string and tie it to each end of your chopstick, leaving the same sized gap on either side. Make it as long or short as you like. It all depends on how low you want it to hang.

Cut three separate lengths of string. Feed one through each of your little pegs, through the little spring part in the middle.

Tie a secure knot.Tie each of the strings with the threaded pegs to the chopstick. I tied mine at different lengths, but you can do it however you like. (Also, you can add as many pegs and strings as you like. I just thought three worked well).

Find a good space to hang it and admire the minimal beauty of it!

Have a go at making one. They’re easy to make and are simple, but beautiful.

Bedside Table Styling

Hello

I’ve decided I’m going to try writing about something different, because I’ve had a bit of writers/makers block, and so I’ve been feeling uninspired to write about the topics I usually do.

I find myself constantly changing up the style of my bedside table in my room. There are two reasons for this. The first one is, I love so many different styles that I always want to experiment and change things up. The other reason is that I get visually bored really easily, so I feel the need to change the small details in my room if they’ve been a certain way for too long. In this post, I’ll be sharing some ways that you can style your bedside table. They’re all a mix of my favourite styles. I find that I revert to a mix of the ‘the reader’ style and ‘the minimalist’ style.

For this style, I’ve used an interesting art print and the plant to add interest. The paintbrushes make for a cute display, as well as the magazines and books, which relate to crafting and creativity.

The Minimalist

I’ve used a basic art print, a studio-style lamp and plants to make this style cohesive. The monochromatic books and ceramic ornament also tie in with the plainer colour scheme.

Whilst still sticking with the studio lamp, I replaced the art print with some Instax photos. Also, I placed a travel journal and Instax Camera on the bedside table to add interest. The plant just ties together with the plant-life in the photos above it.

The Reader

The final style is for the person that loves reading and just wants reading material at their bedside. Piles of magazines and books can look cluttered, so try styling them with plants in a neat pile for a more cohesive look.

I feel like all of these styles are very achievable and easy to pull together. I hope you are inspired to spend a few minutes styling your bedside table into a way that makes you happy!

Also, Happy Spring! (South Hemisphere people x)
