Hey friends! I’ve teamed up with Porch to share what inspires me to be a maker. Which is tough to define, since I find inspiration everywhere! But really, I don’t have to venture any further than my front door to find those things that really trigger creativity in my home.
With my fancy Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 polaroid from Glazers, I was able to capture ten moments and things around my home that I think inspire my need to create projects you might see throughout the weeks and months on the blog. Things such as:
1. Plants! They make things feel fresh and remind me to enjoy the little things!
2. Music. A great stimulater and always a good motivator to dance and let loose when you’re working a lot and forgetting to kick back and relax!
3. Books and Magazines. These can really inspire new ideas and motivate me to start projects I’ve been putting off!
4. Painting! Exploring new mediums and techniques can be fun and rewarding!
5. A clean bedroom. Something as simple as making your bed helps start my day on the right foot!
6. Family. Need I say more!
7. Scandinavian-inspired design. This by far, motivates me to keep my life simple, and minimal! Less is more, right?!
8. Texture and color. Every time I design a space, I keep texture and color in mind because it can really alter how I work and function during the day. If a room is dark and drab, I feel really lazy. If it’s bright and light, I feel rejuvenated and motivated!
9. Fresh flowers! Getting spoiled once in a while can really boost your confidence. Fresh flowers are inexpensive and effective!
10. Home Sweet Home. Above all, I always remember that my life doesn’t have to look or be a specific way. It can be perfectly ordinary and that’s totally ok!
So now that you know what inspires me within my home, I created a super easy DIY to display these fun photo-reminders!
What you will need:
Simply tie your twine from one end of the branch to the other so you can hang your branch once you’re done. Then, cut various lengths of twine to hang from the branch. I cut four.
Simply tape your photos to the hanging twine pieces, in any pattern. Optional: You can tie wooden beads to the ends if you desire and paint the ends of your branch too! Then, hang and enjoy!
It’s one of the simplest projects around! I think bohemian design comes down to just being laid back and being creative with an array of pieces across the board! Which can be quite quirky and unusual at times.
I love how minimal, clean and simple this DIY is! It’s sure a fun way to display photos in your home! What do you think?
