7 DIY Home Decor Projects That Put the "Fun" in Functional

Let's have some fun DIYing today! And hey, if you get a home decor item out of the deal that also serves a pretty rad function, that makes for a good Sunday. So we've gathered seven projects that look fun to make, seem fun to use and might just bring a little fun into your home this weekend!

Pictured above: This project had us at "donut rug." Though unfortunately this confection-named mat won't be able to serve as breakfast, it will brighten your morning with a fun punch of humor. From the brilliant minds at the House that Lars Built.

When you need something with a sexy sling look along with leather, you'll get a kick out of this surprisingly simple but pretty stylish magazine holder spotted on A Beautiful Mess.

From a cute salt pinch bowl for your kitchen to the perfect bobby pin holder for your bathroom, the great thing about these geometric clay pots — besides the fact that you get to play with clay to create them — is that you can control their size and decide just how handy you need them to be. Found on Delia Creates.

A hat holder, a photo holder, a silly and boldly colored squiggly line. You'll get a kick out of what material this DIY project spotted on Amy Krist is made from.

This could actually be used as basket to tote things around in, or incorporated into a stylish vignette. However you use it, it'll look good! Spotted on Learning, Creating, Living.

Nothing says fun like fringe! Spice up a tablescape and protect your furniture with this fringed table runner today. As seen on Parties for Pennies.

Another great table runner to both protect and adorn your table with, this time with cute pom-poms! Could be used as a light decorative throw, too. Spotted on Haberdashery Fun.

What kind of fun DIY projects are you getting into this weekend?! Share ones that you not only enjoying doing, but give you a great functional object for your home, too.
