If you love the idea of filling your home with handmade touches you've lovingly custom-added to your home but never seem to find the time or energy to get your hands dirty with a DIY project, you might like one or more of these six ideas instead. All of them give you a good-looking finished result without a lot of work.

(Pictured above) The only things you need to add some bold pattern to your kitchen cabinets are some wrapping paper/sheets and tape. In no time you could have a bold look without any applying of glue at all. It's not perfect — you'll be able to see seams and it probably won't last forever, but it's a great way to get a quick update for awhile. This idea spotted on Lulu & Georgia.

Cozy up any room of your house and get a fresh take on the sheepskin look by getting a yard or two of faux fur fabric from your local fabric store and cutting it into a "hide" shape to drape on anything that needs some style. You just need to be able to wield scissors for this project. Spotted on francois & moi.

Instantly make any bathroom look more modern with this stunningly simple and simple-to-make copper towel rack, spotted on The Merrythought.

This lovely braided rope rug isn't braided, and the materials used to make it are few and found at your local hardware store. The best part is you could make this in a variety of shapes and sizes to make any size impact that you'd like. Seen on Two Thirty-Five Designs.

Reclaim your bedroom or your living room from your pup and make a linen closet way more attractive by fashioning a cute dog bed nook. In the project spotted on Fifty Two Weekends of DIY, paint is applied to update the closet, but you could make this idea even easier by just styling the space with elements you already have on hand.

Similar to the above idea for your kitchen cabinets, this project spotted on DIY On the Cheap for updating a bookcase might even be even easier to tackle, since it only requires one material: temporary wallpaper.
