Easy DIY decor Instead of buying pricey pieces to decorate your home, why not make your own. We have 4 simple crafts that will brighten up any space. By Brett Walther Photography by Ryan Brook Slide: 1 of 4 auto-play pause next first speed 1. Leaf silhouettes It takes an artist of considerable skill and precision to capture still life with a paintbrush. Luckily, for the rest of us, thereâ€™s spray paint. To create these simple botanical silhouettes, cut interesting pieces of foliage, including leaves and flowers. Place the cuttings on watercolour paper or card stock, and hit them with a few light coats of brightly hued spray paint. Remove the cuttings, allow the paint to dry, then mount the paper in frames for a high-impact gallery-style grouping. Virserum frames in white, $13 each, ikea.ca. Stanchions, chairmanmills.com.
