We all know how important it is to have a place where we can relax after a busy day — a place where nothing troubles us and where everything creates the impression of safety and comfort. But it’s not always easy to find the things that you know will perfectly suit your needs. The good news is that there’s a way to create them yourself!

Bright Side has collected 10 things you can make yourself to help your home become your most favorite place on Earth.

1. A dreamy cloud lamp

Have you ever dreamt of sleeping under the clouds? Well, now your dreams can come true!

First of all, take a piece of hardboard and draw a cloud. Then cut it with the electric fret saw and polish the edges using sandpaper. When the curves of your cloud become perfectly round, paint it with spray paint and let it dry. Now take metal brackets and attach them to the cloud. Place the cloud over a lamp, attach it to the wall, and enjoy.

You can even add some more clouds around the lamp to create the impression of a real sky.

2. A relaxing pebble rug

Have you ever noticed how relaxing it is to step onto smooth pebbles while walking around the beach? You can bring a piece of your summer sea trip home with you by making a pebble rug. It relieves your feet of fatigue and gives you a nice massage, as well.

If you want one in your home, take an old doormat, wash it, and let it dry. Then, using a glue gun, stick pebbles onto the rug. Easy!

3. A beautiful soap dish

Talking about summer memories, how about a pebble soap dish? Take a glass bowl, cover it with a plastic bag or wrap it from the inside, and lay out some pebbles. Glue the stones together, let them dry, and take the bag off. Voilà!

4. An easy painting

If you like art, you can make a bright and colorful painting that’ll have your guests wondering where you acquired such an intriguing piece of artwork.

5. Funny panda cup

Hey, milk fans, here’s an adorable idea for you — make yourself a cute animal cup to cheer you up every time you drink from it.

6. Amazing leaf bowls

Look at these beautiful leaves! Would you like to keep your jewelry there? Or maybe candy? What about using them as candleholders? There are so many things you can use them for and they’re so easy to make that there’s almost no excuse not to make one!

Take a piece of modeling clay and use a rolling pin to get a flat piece of the desired size. Then, take a large and beautiful leaf, place it on top of the clay, and roll the leaf into it until the clay acquires the same texture. Now take a bowl, cover it with plastic wrap, put the clay leaf inside, and leave it overnight so that it could mold over the curved shape. Then take it out and paint it whichever color you like best!

7. Creative candle holders

Candles are so romantic, aren’t they? Yet wax on the table can spoil everything, and it can be so hard to find a beautiful candle holder. Fret no more! Here’s an easy solution:

8. Fairytale flower pot

Good news! There’s no reason to worry if your favorite flower pot cracks or breaks! You can actually give it a second life.

Isn’t this broken pot better than any other in your collection now?

9. An easy-to-make vase

If you’re more into bouquets, we have an idea for you too. You can turn an ordinary glass into a beautiful vase.

10. Stunning moon lamp

A beautiful moon lamp is everyone’s dream. Here’s how to make one:

Now you can put it on the floor or use it as a night lamp. You can even attach it to the ceiling and enjoy your very own moon inside your room!
