Boho Decor Projects for a Vibrant Home

Boho Decor Projects for a Vibrant Home

Colorful and vibrant, boho decor is an ongoing trend that shows no signs of slowing down. There are variations of this style, of course- some are more neutral and calm, while others are more global and eclectic. But, what they all have in common are elements that are unique and bespoke to your home, which makes these boho decor projects even more appealing.

Globally-Inspired Planters

Turning unexpected items into planters is one of the easiest types of upcycling projects. Especially if you give them a gorgeous makeover like this. Would you believe that this Moroccan-inspired boho planter actually started out as a red plastic coffee tub from the grocery store?

Boho Basket Wall

Wall galleries made from flat baskets are a wonderfully thrifty way to fill a LOT of vertical real estate. Plus, they’re lightweight and easy to hang- and with the addition of vintage woven trivets, they take on a whole new boho look.

Whimsical Pillow Covers

Unique and fun, these boho pillow covers started as sweaters hanging on a thrift store rack. Even the pillow inserts came from the thrift store, which makes these boho throw pillows an extremely thrifty way to add pops of color on furniture.

Exotic Metal Trays

Whether you use them inside or out, trays are a great source of decorating inspiration. And a bohemian makeover with splashy paint colors and vibrant fabrics is a great way to give one a boho vibe.

Botanical Prints

Botanical prints and artwork are staples in a lot of boho-influenced homes. And you can put a textured spin on it by stenciling botanicals on woven placemats from the thrift store.

Exotic Vases and Glassware

Can you even tell that these exotic vases were actually clear glass vases from a thrift store? They’re the kind you would get with a small bouquet from the florist or even a hospital gift shop. But a globally-influenced paint job gives them such an exotic look, like you brought one home from an overseas trip.

Woven Wall Hangings

Weaving has made a huge comeback in recent years, albeit with a contemporary twist. Which means that woven wall hangings are found in a lot of boho-decorated homes. This version is actually a pizza pan that has been updated into a DIY loom that doubles as a frame- isn’t that wild?

Cactus Plants and Dish Gardens

Houseplants of all kinds, including cacti, are a big part of boho decor. But what if you have zero talent for keeping plants alive? Then fake plants are your best bet, whether they are of the silk variety or something more unique (like these ceramic cactus plants).

Coin Charms on Boho Vases

Adding charms to bottles give them a whimsical, artsy look, especially if the charms look like old coins. But these aren’t coins at all! These bottle charms are actually made from vintage metal buttons which are very easy (and inexpensive) to procure.

Thrifty, Maximalist Boho Decor

Some folks take a maximalist approach to boho decor, incorporating a lot of different elements, colors, and textures. Some savvy thrift store shopping might be in order if you’re interested in a more collected approach to a boho home.

Vintage Brass Pieces

Candles and vintage brass items are often associated with modern day boho decor. And if you find a small bowl or cauldron like this from the thrift store, it’s easy to transform into a candle. Adding colorful, textural touches like these fringe earrings just amp up the vibrant Bohemian feel.

Succulents, Succulents, and More Succulents

Succulents are everywhere these days, thanks in part to the boho home trends. And while living succulents are ideal in planters, fake versions from craft stores are best for crafting with. And a wild and lush display like this in a thrift store basket is the perfect addition to a boho home.

Textured Vases and Boho Pottery

Pottery is a staple of just about every boho-decorated home, but if you can’t find the real deal, there ARE other options. Textured paint, like the kind used on this clear glass vase, is a great fake-out option. It gives clear glass pieces from the thrift store a much improved look for your own boho style.

Botanical Elements

Plain wooden bookends, either from a thrift or home store, are a blank canvas for boho style. And what says boho more than botanical elements, like this Monstera leaf design?

So many exciting ways to add touches of Bohemian decor to your home. But the biggest question is: Which of these boho decor projects will you try first?

Craft on!
