5 Easy DIY Makeovers
I had some items laying around that I wanted to give a little “wow” factor too. Using some Main Street Decals I could easily complete 5 DIY Makeovers!
Here are the decals I wanted to use to update and makeover my different items. Most of the time people think of decals for their walls, doors, & cars. When I see them I think about all of the possibilities – lamp shades, windows, canvas art, furniture… The great thing about these decals is that you can easily remove them and change them up.

5 Easy DIY Makeovers Video
Glass Block Nightlight
I took a glass block that I had on hand. You can easily get these from craft stores. I added a dollar store strand of lights to the the inside.
I added the “Follow Your Dreams” decal to the glass block.
Here’s the completed night light and I love it. Place this anywhere in your home and share the inspiration.
Sun Catcher or Wall Art
I picked up this cabinet door from the clearance section at IKEA for just a couple dollars. (Yes they have a clearance section ) You could also use a picture frame with the back reomoved for this project as well.
I cleaned the glass first, then I added the decal “Hope is an Anchor for the Soul” to the glass.
I can place this in a window as a sun catcher or hang it on my wall.
Repurpose A Jar
This was an old pickle jar that I took the label off of and cleaned it out. I added butterfly decals to the outside, and added battery operated fairy lights to the inside.
I love how it turned out! Now I just need to update the lid of this jar. Any ideas?
Update A Plain Container
I added these fun decals to a plain galvanized container on all 4 sides.
Now it’s ready to be filled with fun items and given as a gift, or I can use it in my home.
Update A Mirror
I had this wrought iron mirror that I felt needed a little something to it. I added some flower decals for spring and summer. Remember they come off easy too – so I can change this up for the other seasons as well.

So clever! I especially love the glass block night light! Happy to be crafting with you today!
You are so sweet Mary, I’m thrilled with that one too. So lovely to craft with you as well.
Oh wow. This is the first time I’ve seen Main Street Decals. They have really dressed up your projects in such a clever way. My brain is all over the place thinking about what I could do with them. Thanks!
Thank you so much Patti, I have had a ton of fun with them over the years and become quite addicted to all the possibilities. So great crafting with you
Just like Patti I am not familiar with Main Street Decals, but I sure want to be now!
Such a wonderful alternative to stenciling and the transparency on the glass is awesome.
Great sharing this crafting blog hop with you!
Stay safe and well,
Thank you so much Jemma, I started messing with them over the years and have quite a collection going. It’s fun to use them outside the box. Wonderful crafting with you.
These are so fun! I must admit, I only saw limited possibilities with decals until I saw your post. Now I’m going to search my house for fresh ideas.
Thanks for the inspiration, Chas 🙂
Thank you so much Rachelle. This is how my brain works – lol. How can I use it outside the box. I have had such fun playing with these. Wonderful crafting with you.
So many great ideas, but I especially love the butterfly jar! So pretty! This is such an inspiring hop!!
Thank you so much Jenna – I’m so ready for spring and summer. That one makes me think of the fireflies I miss in MN where I grew up. The butterflies are a memory of my grandma. Wonderful crafting with you
What a great way to dress up items around the home. They look great. I have a glass block with lights that I stored away. I am going to go dig that out and use some decals I purchased at Dollar Tree and do what you did to yours. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you so much Terrie, I’ll be the decals you have from Dollar Tree are Main Street Creation decals. If you can’t find what you’re looking for you can always go to their website 🙂 I’m thrilled you’re going to make one too. Wonderful crafting with you.
Oh my, Chas, you’ve been quite busy with all of these wonderful makeovers! Terrific ideas and perfect ways to update so many pieces and projects!
Thank you so much Gail, it has been fun to create (keeps me busy while staying at home). Wonderful crafting with you
Good ideas, Chas. I made some mirror decals with my Cricut awhile back. Maybe it’s time for some new ones!
Thank you Liberty – oh I’m so jealous, I would love a Cricut machine! Wonderful crafting with you.
Great projects; love them all. I had glass blocks in the 80’s so especially love that one and how cool it looks when lit!
Thank you so much Sara – I love that I can change it up with new ones, and or seasonally. Wonderful crafting with you
You too; it’s been a fun hop!
Great ideas! Whenever I go to Dollar Tree, I check for new decals! Like your variety of objects. I tried one on a breadboard but the surface was not smooth enough for it to work. My glass French doors may get some new details!
Thank you so much Kathy, and I too have picked up these at Dollar Tree. It’s nice to know you can get them directly from their website, as sometimes I can’t find the design I want. Love that you want to have some fun with them too.
All such fun ideas Chas! I can’t choose a favorite, they are all so pretty and fun!
Thank you so much Kristin, they were so much fun to create 🙂 Wonderful crafting with you

Love the butterfly with the lights. That would be such a cute centerpiece for an outdoor party, if and when we can ever throw parties again. haha
Thank you so much Andrea! That’s a really great idea too, thanks for sharing that tip. Wonderful crafting with you 🙂
These are all great ideas and I love that you used dollar store decals–I use them frequently too! Happy to be joining you for this creative hop! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction
Thank you so much Cecilia. I have created so many projects with them and it’s fun to think outside the box with them. Wonderful crafting with you
Chas, I would have never thought of using decals these fun and clever ways— thanks for the creative inspiration! I especially like the glass block and jar. Perhaps you could top the lid with a silk flower with a butterfly perched on it? Like my sunflower fascinator?
Thank you so much Debee, and I love those too. Thank you so much for giving me that suggestion for the top of the butterfly jar – great idea! Wonderful crafting with you
I love the suncatcher! They are all great ideas, but that’s my favorite.
Thanks for sharing Michelle, I really liked that one too!
