4. Knick Knacks
Knick Knacks are so much fun– they bring personality and character to a book shelf, desk, or room. Some of my favorite knick knacks are pictured above– an owl for 75 cents from the thrift store, a ceramic bird for 50 cents from a thrift store, and a vintage jar that my mom bought for me at a garage sale. Here are a few projects that show how you can transform average knick knacks:
- Knick Knack Update from Lisa Leonard Blog
- Spray Paint Ugly Knick-Knacks from Make: Craft — they even make a gnome look chic!
- Turn Garden Statues into Bookends from Dollar Store Crafts
- DIY Animal Bookends and Brass Figurines by Little Green Notebook
Remember, though, don’t just buy knick knacks to buy them. Buy knick knacks that show your personality and style!
