All the latest trends point towards simplicity and minimalism and things are not any different in the field of interior design where designers try to simplify everything as much as possible in order to only include the essentials but without sacrificing function or comfort. You can take on the role of a designer and come up with your own beautiful creations. These minimalist DIY projects will offer you a few really great ideas.

We’ll start with a lovely bud vase. Easy to make and really chic, this is the type of accent decoration you can display anywhere in the house. To make it you need craft plywood, a metal candle plate, a copper air chamber, some wire, wood stain, strong adhesive and some salt and vinegar. The last two will be used to polish the copper air chamber. This is a very suggestive type of minimalist art you can craft yourself.{found on annabode}.

First you need to make a geometric mold using a template. Once you have it, make the concrete mixture and fill the mold with it. Once it’s dry, peel away the tape and cardboard and sand the surface and each edge.{found on ehow}.
