Alright, you want to make your home cozy (or more cozy) but you don’t know how.
The bad news is it can be expensive to come up with great ways to keep your home cozy and organized.
The good news is you can make your home cozy and inviting without spending tons of money.
It just takes a bit of creativity and some easy and cheap materials you can find at your local store (or even already in your home!)
There are what seems to be a gajillion ideas out there, so I’ve compiled the best ones I could find to help you out on making your home better.
Check them out!
Make These Rustic Pom Pom Flowers
These rustic pom pom flowers caught my eye as soon as I saw them!
They are just gorgeous and can go with almost any type of decoration and help warm your house up a little bit.
They’re easy to make with just a few things, you can find out how exactly to put them together (and learn to make pom poms in the process) in this detailed tutorial.
They are sure to liven up any room you put them in.
Hand A Shutter Mail Organizer
This home hack is perfect for your home office to get less cluttered and more organized with a clever twist.
This shutter organizer is easy to make and you can even add a cork board right beside it for notes and reminders.
For an extra addition, you can even add key hooks to the bottom to never lose your keys again. I have a similar version of this in my own room, and it’s helpful for making sure I don’t lose important pieces of mail.
It also makes your home feel down to earth!

Add Knotted Pillows
These quirky knotted pillows are awesome for lounging around. And the best part is you don’t have to spend tons to get them for your own living room.
Now that I think about it, you can get really creative and even make them oversized and make them lounging pillows.

Organize Your Kitchen Utensils
Your kitchen needs some love too!
There’s nothing more anxiety inducing than a cluttered kitchen, especially when it comes time to make dinner.
This simple hack involves finding a cute basket and arranging your favorite kitchen utensils in it.
The little herb plant addition just brings it all together. You can check more out for inspiration here.
Make Your Home Smell Awesome
A gorgeously decorated home is nothing if the garbage smell has taken over the house. AmIRight?!
Make it extra cozy by boiling a few key ingredients together! Just lemon, some rosemary, and a spoonful of vanilla extract should do it. For a more holiday smell you can always boil cinnamon and apple slices together (ginger also smells great and fills the whole house!)

A blanket ladder is a great way to store your blankets in plain sight.

Rope rugs help keep your space clean and can be a gorgeous complement to the rest of your home!
