Autumn is here and winter is not that far and it’s time to cuddle and feel cozy. Give your home decor a particularly warm and cozy touch so that you feel great here. Faux fur, crochet, and knit pieces are just the thing for a cool textural decor and warm-up. I want to share some chic ideas – chunky decorations and pieces of furniture. They look a lot more eye-catching than usual knitwear and are very comfortable to sit on or cuddle with.
A chunky knit blanket is what we all need for fall and winter – it corresponds to a comfortable sleep in the cold season and it looks so cool! Not only is such a blanket a great thing to make you feel cozy, it also makes your bedroom or living room decor more stylish and textured. A faux fur carpet, a chunky knit blanket and a leather pillow make your bed very chic and edgy.
Rock various coarse-knit stools, stools in the colors that match your interior. They are sure to provide comfort and a cute look. You can take a regular bench, chair, or any other piece and just add a cozy, chunky-knit cover to make it more comfortable. Such coarse knitted covers can easily be made by yourself. There are tons of tutorials on the internet. Make your autumn cozier with chunky items!
Paper plates are a great source of materials for various types of crafts, and you can make so many things out of them that you can't even imagine. Let's take a look at them and maybe you want to realize some.
DIY paper plate crafts for kids
Paper plates are great for making animals of all kinds - they serve as backgrounds. Make some Angry Birds for your kids to keep them happy! Paint each paper plate with acrylic paint and paint sponges and let it dry. Next, give each character a pair of big googly eyes. Cut (3) 1-inch sections of the black electrical tape. Then carefully cut in half long ways (hot dog style, as the kids call it) and give each character a pair of thick black eyebrows. Cut a large oval from the green foam for the pig's snout and secure it with the glue stick. Using the black sharpie marker, draw 2 oval nostrils on the pig's snout. Cut 2 smaller ovals for the pig ears. Cut the bottom straight and add a piece of black tape to the green foam or fill it with a marker pen. Attach both ears to your pig with a glue stick. Cut 2 beaks from the orange craft foam and attach them to your red and yellow birds. Lastly, give each bird a coordinating feather.
