Using copper as material in home decor and interior design has been gaining in popularity during the past year. Its metallic quality of light reflecting surfaces and copper orange tones has been made attractive in modern as well as rustic designs. It’s now very often used, especially when it comes to minimalist decor.

But the new trend that we’re talking about is DIY copper decor. While we’ve experimented with copper decor pieces throughout the year and beyond, it is now time to get our hands dirty with crafts made from this material. Here are 16 brilliant ideas to get us started.

Copper Planters

There’s no better way to start with a new DIY project than a planter or a vase, especially when it comes to experimenting. Make these lovely copper planters for a rustic meets modern decor.

Copper Shelves

While copper is trending, it doesn’t mean you have to use it all over the house, even if you like the material so much. It actually looks best if used sparingly in small accents, such as these suspended wall shelves.

Copper Curtain Rod

Another great idea where you can add an accent in copper is the curtain rod. It’s quite unexpected and adds a lot of decor interest in a subtle way. It will help your curtain styling as well.

Copper Clothing Rail

We love storage units, especially if they have decor value. Making a clothing rail from copper pipe certainly adds a lot to your decor.
