DIY is great when you are on a tight budget, an affordable way to get items you desire. February is for many a month of saving after the holidays but at the same time a period for redecorating and new beginnings. In this post, you can find a collection of DIY ideas for the home with the perfect Scandinavian look.

Wall pocket organizers are great for storing little things in anywhere in your home. I love how simple and easy this DIY from Homey Oh My is, and the fact that it is a way to use packaging you would just throw out in a creative way. This is for sure an idea I will be trying our myself, what about you?

If you have a lot of rings, what better way to display these than a pretty ring cone? These DIY faux ceramic ones are so cute. Check out the blogpost by Molly from Almost Makes Perfect for a step by step on how to make these.
