Hey Everyone!
Welcome to DIYHoard, where I gather up a bunch of DIY ideas i find online (and a few of my own) and often try to add explanations and tips on how to make them your own.
Not only do I post DIY ideas but I also talk about crafting, lifestyle, beauty, food, and whatever else I find relevant!

I will credit everything that I can find credit for.
If you find your post uncredited, let me know and I will fix it right away.

Message me with requests or ideas. Tried something out? Send me a picture!


If I message you back, it will be under the url greatest-treasure, my personal blog.

Interested in co-running? Send me a message :)

I may post things that are considered triggering for some people; this includes talk of dieting, coming out of depression, and relationship talk

I have decided to do the light brown to blonde ombre! 
I’ll probably end up doing it tonight so there will most likely be a  picture of how it turned out on my personal blog.

To those of you suggesting a professional, I do agree that it is a better idea, but not something I can afford. I’ve been dying my hair myself for about 6 years and haven’t really had any problems. That being said I suggest everyone go to a professional for any major hair changes unless you are very confident in your abilities! 


I recently dyed my hair from black to a golden blonde color. My roots are growing out tremendously in a pitch black color, so I’m deciding it’s time to do something else.
Should I bleach my hair platinum blonde or should I do a lite caramel brown color to blonde ombre look?

**edit: this is how the color looks right now

I’ve answered questions similar to this before so I suggest looking through my blog to see what ideas I’ve sent those people. You’ll also find some good room ideas too!
The first thing I suggest is covering your walls with as many pictures, posters, or even magazine cutouts as you can. Pictures don’t have to be framed, just use tape! Arrange them in a cute way in order for it to look good. Pictures can be done in blocks since they’re all the same size. You can also hang them on a string hanging from your wall by two thumbtacks. You can do rows of them going down your wall. As for magazine cutouts, you can get magazines at your local libraries or ask friends for old ones. Cut out images and make collages to post on your wall. I know this is really common for high schoolers. Some people even fill up whole walls. Another idea is to hang up signs, notes, or drawings that you have made or your friends have made you.I don’t necessarily recommend doing ALL these things, but I do suggest doing at least two.To make the room look a little more classic, cut flowers out of garden and decorate your room with them. Tie bunches together with pretty ribbons or rope and tape them to your wall on either side of your window, a bulletin board, picture frames, or shelves. Make this pretty easy headboard I posted yesterday out of cardboard.
I don’t know if you can afford wallpaper or not, but if you can, it would be great to cover up areas of your wall or a whole wall. You can also cut wallpaper into cool shapes like triangles and arrows and make a cool design on your wall. You can do this with regular paper as well.
As for your bedspread, I suggest buying fabric dye (which is only one or two dollars) and dying your bedspread a solid color. From there you can paint patterns with fabric or acrylic paint and even make stamps and stencils with cardboard to make a cool design. Iron transfers work well too if you can afford it. Hope this helps!

This month I got my school supplies and I love my notebooks but want to write on them because there super cute but only some of them are do you have any ideas how to spice up some of my pencils,bags and notebooks?

as for notebooks, painting the front with chalkboard paint or gloss paint allows you to write on them and erase all the time. The gloss paint allows for you to write and erase with expo markers. I also ALWAYS suggest colorful tape or washi tape to decorate your notebooks! Use sharpies to make cute patterns as well.

Washi tape is also good for pens and pencils as you can wrap them with it. You can also use it for bags but really fabric paint and stencils will do you a lot better. Find some stencils at  your local craft store! add some studs to the front of your bookback in rows and on the shoulder straps

Hey I have a really tinny room and want to make it look bigger and I also have a really small budget can you help? 😁
  • To make your room look bigger make sure all of your furniture is against a wall. When you have furniture (such as your bed) in the middle of your room it makes it look like it takes up more space and therefore makes your room look smaller. Having everything against a wall gives you more space in the middle of the room.

  • Use your walls! Plain shelves usually run pretty cheap and allow you to have more storage in your room without taking up ground space.
  • Get a big mirror on your wall. Mirrors make rooms look bigger, so if you have a big mirror on your vanity or anywhere in your room (on a wall preferably) it will make your room appear wider!
  • Shoe boxed or shoe box style organizational boxes are V I T A L for your room. You can stack them up in neat order in your closet or against a wall. Any box type storage unit is perfect for a small room. You can decorate boring ones by painting them, using wallpaper, or colorful tape.
