Wine bottle Décor

Wine bottles are amazingly versatile and can be used for decorating your living room in an effortless yet sophisticated way. All you have to do is to wash the bottles properly, strip away all the paper and then paint them with left over paint. Decide on a particular colour theme like black and white/ red/pink and cream etc and the theme should match with your wall colours. Put in flowers, colored candy, and even color pencils in them to create a funky look. To take the look a notch higher you can decorate the bottles with ribbons and buttons.

Recycle old clothes

Ever thought that you could spruce up your living room with old clothes? Well cushions, rugs and floor mats can easily be fashioned out of old jeans, brocade and velvet pieces and colorful cotton dresses. You can also use old bedspreads to make quilted rugs which look colorful and cute. Sheer old scarves and dupattas can be used alternatively with curtains to filter in the outside light. The point is to remember to check whether you can recycle your oldies before you dump them.
