DIY Your Way to Fresh Home Décor!

We’ve partnered with professional party planner and crafter Thuy Bui from Hey Thuy to show us how to use craft supplies to DIY a pretty piece of home décor.

With summer just around the corner, I’ve found myself wanting to spruce up my home décor around the house, yet I don’t want to spend a lot of money to do so. Therefore, I like to get creative and put my crafting skills to the test. Tuesday Morning is one of my favorite stores to pick up my crafting supplies. I can get quality supplies for a fraction of the cost, which is totally within my budget! Today I am excited to share a DIY summer home décor update using a crate I picked up at Tuesday Morning, two mini canvases and various scrapbooking supplies.

I started with a flower punch and a pack of scrapbook paper.

I picked a few sheets of scrapbook paper that I felt had a summery feel and used my flower punch to punch out six different flowers.

Once I had my flowers punched out, I layered them by twos and folded the petals up on the top flowers to give them more of a 3-D look. After I folded my flowers, I hot-glued them onto my canvas.

On my second mini canvas, I used a pack of fabric butterflies and some fun Martha Stewart paints.

I first placed all my fabric butterfly stickers on my canvas.

Then I took a Q-tip and applied my paint to my fabric butterflies, leaving a few in between white to give them some contrast.

Once my canvases were finished, I was ready to use them with my crate to update my buffet table with a fun and fresh look.

I used my crate as the main focus and placed my canvases inside.

I love how this project turned out. And when I am ready to change up my home décor again, I can easily switch out the items on my mini canvases to create a new look!

    I was at the Saugus, Mass. store on Friday and Today and I met a wonderful person. Her name is Kerry and she is the manager of the store. She was so helpful and friendly.
    Her staff was also very helpful. and when I was talking to them I said You have a wonderful manager and they said yes she is.
    She needs a compliment from upper managerment. Donna

    I was on Tuesday morning located on Sun city center Florida. The elder employees are rude and have no idea what customer services means. They belongs to nursing home nor in a store
    maybe they are tired.

      Hi Erika,

      Please accept our sincerest apologies. Poor customer service is not acceptable at Tuesday Morning nor is it typical. Would you mind sending us an email with details of the situation and your contact information to custserv@tuesdaymorning.com?
