Every so often, we like to switch things up around here and share a home decor DIY.
Do you ever see a home decor item on Pinterest, or on your favourite Instagram home decor account and think, “oh, I can make that!”? Then, you do a quick Google search and realize that it’s been done. A lot.
Well, even though that happened, I liked this DIY for its simplicity and sustainable, eco-friendly and natural elements — unfinished wood beads and unbleached cotton string. Also, DIY’ing this Bohemian wood bead garland was definitely cheaper than buying it, and that’s the goal of a good DIY, right? Plus, it was incredibly easy to make.
Store bought room sprays and deodorizers may smell good, but they can be very bad for your upper respiratory system as well as your overall health. Common ingredients in these products include formaldehyde, phthalates, and dangerous aerosol propellants such as butane and propane — not to mention the thousands of other endocrine-disprupting chemicals that are not required to be disclosed on the product’s label. Exposure to these ingredients has been linked to cancer, pulmonary damage, asthma, and skin issues, among other concerns.
