We all know the struggle of trying to find cute decorations that don’t cost an arm and a leg. It’s especially difficult when we want to change certain decorations for each season – dark, cooler colors for the winter months, bright, warm colors for the summer months, etc.

There are a few ways to get some awesome, trendy home decor on a budget using one of the DIYers best friends: hot glue! Keep reading to see just a few of the many ways we can use hot glue to create fun things like placemats, accent rugs, and even lamps!

Hot glue is super inexpensive, but it is such a useful tool! It creates a bond between most things and it dries quickly so you can make your project and have it done in no time. Lately, people have been experimenting with hot glue as a medium in and of itself. That’s where we get fun projects like the hot glue placemat pictured above! Once the hot glue dries, just spray paint it and you can have a splash of color on your table for every season.

Another fun and easy DIY is the wine cork board. This is such a great way to use up those corks you’ve been saving for a rainy day. Go ahead and check out the video below to see the other projects!
