DIY home office decor

One thing I love about having a home office is that I can really make it my own. I can fill it with things that inspire me and motivate me to create. I have a display above my computer desk that really makes me happy, and I'm going to show you how to create your own home office decor to display your family photos, your favorite colors, and your personal style!

I recently renovated my craft room and I’m really an aqua/teal kind of girl. My decor before the renovation was mint, teal, blue, aqua, green and brown. But I’m loving all the blush pink I’ve seen paired with those colors recently, so I’ve started following suit. My current favorite color scheme is Blush Pink, Mint, Teal, and Cornflower Blue.

I started by grabbing some patterned papers and embellishments in my favorite colors from some of my favorite brands: Crate Paper  and Maggie Holmes.

Then I made a “family” banner with my Mini Alphabet Punch Board.

To speed things up I grabbed my Square Punch Board and punched out four 1 1/2 x 2 1/2 inch rectangles, and one 2 1/2 inch square (for the letter M). Then I used my Mini Alphabet Punch Board app to create the letters for my banner.

I used washi tape to secure the yarn to the back of the letters. I chose a yarn color to match my color scheme, and then tied it to my folding ruler.

I added a few embellishments, including a tropical leaf I made with the Happy Jig and some green wire.

Then I made some photo frames with my Frame Punch Board to display some of my favorite family photos. I added some more embellishments, including another Happy Jig tropical leaf.

Once I finished decorating my folding ruler as the focal point on the wall above my desk, I surrounded it with wall decor in the same color scheme.

I love having my family photos on display over my work area, along with my favorite colors, patterns, and images. It inspires me as I work, and it makes me happy when I look at the wall. Thanks for stopping by, and happy crafting friends!
