If you are like me, you like to incorporate your fandoms into your home décor. I don’t mean everything is plastered with my favorite canine, Scooby-Doo, though his smiling face is featured. There are so many ways to decorate with your fandoms, from in-your-face to nice and subtle. Today, I am going to give you some ideas.
So, Amazon has everything, and Pinterest has all the ideas. Between the two of them, you can’t go wrong. I do want to say right off that you can do amazing things with lighting, and Amazon has lights coming out the wazoo. Obviously, you can buy posters, tapestries, knick-knacks, and more for your décor. However, why not try making your own?
Pillows are quick and easy to make and can be made in any color, style, and shape. I can make a Scooby pillow colored and shaped like Scooby, but I am not that good, nor am I that patient. However, I can make a mean circle, square, or rectangle pillow. If I want to go simple and subtle, I will make five pillows, one matching member of the gang in color with no image. Easy and recognizable but still subtle. Personally, I would find a patterned fabric I like and make a pillow out of that. I could also find multiple Scooby fabrics I like and make a collection of pillows or pillows and a lap blanket for the couch. You could also make napkins and placemats or curtains. Material gives you lots of options.
Another nerdy DIY I did is I took five 5×5 picture frames, painted them black slapped on some glitter, and filled the frames with some of my favorites from books, movies, and TV. I’ll show you below. Go on Google, find some images to print, and put them into frames. They can be hung together or sprinkled throughout the room or house.
For an outdoor DIY, how about stepping stones? With cement and a mold, mix up and pour the cement into the mold. While the cement is still wet, draw symbols such as the anti-possession one from Supernatural or write memorable quotes into the cement. Once dry, pop it out of the mold and show it off on your stoop. You can even add stones, trinkets, or other objects to decorate the stepping stone and bring attention to it. Paint can even be employed on the stone after it dries.
I hope this helps you. Do you prefer DIY or buying it already made? Please share your best project with us in the comments below for those DIYers. Those that purchase decor, share links to your favorite things in the comments. That’s what I like to see, nerds helping nerds. So until next time, have fun storming the castle!
