Adding personal touches like family photos, knick-knacks, and seasonal decor pieces can help make a house feel like a home. When I first moved into my new house, I was very excited to begin painting and decorating each room. But it didn’t take very long for me to realize that furniture, wall art, and other home decor items quickly add up.
I wanted to give our house that finished look without charging up our credit card but couldn’t justify the cost when the other household purchases were more important. I’d become comfortable with my mostly bare walls and slightly disorganized kitchen until I stumbled upon the DIY and affordable decor hacks on TikTok. I scrolled through ideas that were creative and attainable! They helped inspire me to spruce up my home without going into debt. From DIYing Dollar Store finds into beautiful decor to faking the look of a Frame TV, read on for eight of my favorite budget-friendly decor hacks from TikTok.
