It is hard not to be a fan of crystals. For years, quartz, selenite and amethyst are believed to come with healing properties. This is something that dates back to the ancient Egypt. True or not, the crystals are amazing for your home and they are a great decorative item. And the great news is that they don’t cost much. Here are 10 creative ways in which you can use crystals.
Instead of having a regular stand for your lamp, you sparkle things up a bit and add crystals. Such lamp will draw immediate attention and it looks even more beautiful with only that light on.
Boho Wall Hanging
A fiber wall hanging or dreamcatchers look quite stylish as they are but they can even look better by adding a small gemstone to them. In fact, nothing prevents you from putting more of those babies up there. Awake your inner hippie.
Sometimes Crystal Decor is perfect with vintage books and feathers. You can always build an antiqued vignette and add a crystal next to it as a final touch. It doesn’t take a lot of time to get it done and you will make your home much more beautiful.
Even if you are not a fan of plants, having greenery on a few places in your home will make it refreshing. Glue a small plant on your crystal and create a mini crystal garden. It doesn’t have to occupy a lot of space and it can stand on your desk.
Sometimes, separating the crystal to stand out is just the right thing to do. It doesn’t matter whether you have bought it in store or even eBay, it can be a perfect decorative item in any room of your home. Put it alongside houseplants, books, photo frames or just arrange several rocks together.
Some people wish to have a house with a fireplace and it is easy to understand why. A fireplace gives you a sense of coziness and in case your fireplace currently stands empty, there are a lot of creative ways to fill it up. A crystal sculpture that mimics fire can be found and it can sit beautifully instead of real flames.
Who says that you even need crystals to get your home decorated? Instead, you can get a painting of gemstones done and hand it on suitable places around your house. It might seem silly at first, but the paintings can look quite gorgeous.
In case you have no room for your gems, you can always frame them and hang them against the wall. The glass will serve as a nice protection and the walls in your house will be much more beautiful. You can put several together, or have space between “the photos”.
Larger is not always better. Sometime small gemstones will do the work. Instead of your regular drawer pulls, you can have the ones with stones in them. They are truly eye-catching and they are perfects for your bathroom cabinets. Of course, not every drawer pull must have a gemstone, but it does give you a sense of luxury.
Last but not least, crystal décor can be used for your jewel box. Or any other box, speaking of which. And if you decide to do such a thing, selenite and quartz look quite chic. You can decorate each box differently (here’s a business idea) and give them as presents to your friends and family.
As you can see, there are a lot of things you can do with crystals around your house. Be creative and you will think at least of ten more!
