With the current grassroots trend also comes the popularity of creating a handmade home. This trend refers to making use of handcrafted items to decorate and furnish your space. In most cases, this trend involves knitted pillowcases,  crocheted rugs, washi taped and hand painted walls, macramé wall art, upcycled items, repurposed objects, embroidered curtains, and lots of paper crafts. It’s packed with creativity and a lot of love, making such pieces the perfect items to decorate a home with.

The lovely thing about handmade homes is that they are filled with unique pieces that are made personally by someone who is passionate, either about the craft, or the place the piece will go to. The pieces are not just things bought to be put in display, but are products that actual people put their time and effort into, a direct product of their own hard work. These makes such pieces quite special and one of a kind.

If you want to create a handmade look for your home, we’ve rounded up a number of inspiring photos from all over the web, as seen below.

If you’re crafty, finding an inspiration can help you go a long way. If you’re not, well, there are always those handmade fairs that you can turn to, as well as several sellers online. These places sell all kinds of handmade decor and pieces, all of which you can use to create a cozy home. Just remember to do it sparsely and with discretion, so you won’t overload your space with too much of the same texture, material, or looks. This way, you can maintain the visual interest your handmade items can bring and maximize its effect.
