It’s not hard to see why cottagecore is huge right now. Focusing on nature and vintage items, it’s budget-friendly and easy to get into. And here’s a TikTok that will show you how simple it is to add some additional flair to those old treasures.

Over on TikTok, user @easyinterieur went viral after demonstrating how to turn an ordinary teacup into the perfect cottagecore table setting. The hack is so simple, it only takes a minute or two. Just take a square napkin, preferably one with a floral pattern, and follow the six-fold process. The result is a handle bow that instantly adds whimsy to your tea party.

The hack is so popular, it has received over 4 million views on the platform. User @easyinterieur also has other low-budget tutorials on her account. Here’s one where she turns a bunch of ping pong balls into wall decor into a shiny statement piece for a wall:

And here’s one where she takes a dog’s chew toy and transforms it into a sculpture. The secret? A can of spray paint.

And her most popular TikTok video, having received over 27 million views, shows how to turn a set of bowls into a stacked geometric side table.

Whether you’re into cottagecore or some other aesthetic, these hacks prove that you don’t need a lot to get started. Sometimes all you need is spray paint, ping pong balls, or even just a napkin!
