Decor DIY ~ Colorful Knick Knacks

Hiya lovelies!  Today I thought I'd share a simple and eye-catching decor DIY.  It's a great way to add a punch of color to any room's decor.  Here's what you'll need:
I picked up the shells at the thrift store and the owls at Target.  I chose a bright red and a light teal spraypaint.  Follow the directions and spray until you get the desired coverage (I did three coats, letting each coat dry thoroughly before applying the next).
The lovely shells now grace my mantel.
Which perfectly complement my porcelain sand castle :)
And my owls look lovely guarding my TV.  I bought the purple glass one at TJ Maxx.

This could be done on pretty much anything.  Pine cones, thrifted children's toys, whatever your heart desires!

What do you think would be a fun and whimsical thing to spraypaint and use as decor?


  1. I love colorful knick-knacks -- especially the bright red!

  2. I need to find a place where I can spray paint! Living in a city condo and there is no greenery by me makes it hard to partake in this type of DIY! So tempted to try it!

  3. the colors for the shells are perfect! turquoise and coral are my favorites. have you heard of plastidip for sprucing up decorative objects? I've seen it on apartment therapy-- it can be bright colored too!

  4. Excellent idea!! The owls and shells look so much better. Perfect way to really customize decor rather than struggling to find something to match.
