This post features six homemade decorative projects that you can create to revive your kitchen. Take a look and get inspired!

Create a big poster for the main wall of your kitchen

The poster in the image has become the centerpiece or this minimalist kitchen. It’s smart and elegant at the same time. The stylish Predators font makes this simple quote look undeniably chic. The handwritten cursive strokes create a well-balanced, striking composition. 

You can design a poster like this yourself. It’s straightforward! Simply install your favorite font in a design tool, like Canva. Type your text and align it to the left. Add a complementary background color and send it to the back. Make your text white, and it will pop out!

Some printing companies can directly print your design on a canvas. If you’d prefer you can simply print your design on paper and add a frame yourself. 

Customize an apron with a message

An apron is an essential garment for anyone who spends hours in the kitchen, and is the perfect way to keep your clothes clean whilst cooking or baking. Once you have finished using it, you can hang it in a prominent place in your kitchen to display a fun quote or a charming message.

The font that you can see in the example is called Roustel. This handwritten type is perfect for sharing a message in a quirky yet fancy way- It is fun, fresh, and easy to read. 

This font is a digital asset so you’ll have to create your design on a computer or a tablet. Once you’ve finished creating a layout, there are many ways to transfer it on to your apron – why not try printing it out and making a stencil! You can color through the stencil with special cloth markers.

Add a message to your kitchen towels

If space is limited, you should avoid cluttering up your kitchen with unnecessary decorations. In more compact kitchens, the best option is to decorate the tools that you use every day. This way, you can craft something handy, unique, and aesthetically pleasing. This customized towel is a perfect example of a kitchen tool that is both beautiful and practical.

The font on this towel is called Potato Pancakes. This bold lettering mimics the appearance of a brush pen’s strokes. You can use this font to create any message that you like.

If you have a cutting machine, you can cut out your design on vinyl. To transfer the vinyl to your kitchen towels, you can use an iron or a heat press. Your design will remain in its place, no matter how many times you wash the towel.

Create a lovely card to announce the daily menu

This decorative idea can also be very practical. Surprise the members of your household by announcing the daily menu with a fancy card. You can create a template and customize it as many times as you need. This idea can also help you decorate your house for a special occasion, such as a dinner party.

The card on this example features the Colombia font. This elegant sans serif type fits almost any project! It’s stylish and comfortable to read, so everyone can see what’s for dinner.

You can print out these cute cards with a domestic printer. For an extra charming touch, you can experiment with different textures of paper. Your guests are guaranteed to be impressed by your attention to detail!


Decorate your mugs with a message

If you store your mugs on a shelf where everyone can see them, this idea is perfect for you. Cups belong in the kitchen, so why not use them as decorative elements!

In the example below, you can see an elegant mug with simple lettering. Sometimes, less really is more: basic designs are easier to combine with other elements.

The font on this mug is called Open Heart. This handwritten type is a swirly variation of British Copperplate calligraphy. These letters can be used to create a fancy and minimalistic effect. 

To customize your mugs, you can print or cut out a stencil with your lettering. Paint over it with special ceramics paint. Sublimation is another good alternative for professional-looking results.

Create a customized calendar

Having a printed calendar is always handy, so why not make it cute? Use one to create a beautiful point of interest to any wall in your kitchen. 

In this image, you can see a calendar page that features the Mama font in the title. It’s fancy, energetic, and expressive. These handwritten letters are perfect for displaying the name of the month. You can create twelve variations – one for each month of the year. Experiment with colors and illustrations to give every month a unique look. 

You can also experiment with the way of hanging these custom calendar pages. What you see on the image is just a suggestion. You can hang all the pages of your calendar together or only display the one representing the current month. 


Now it’s your turn to decorate your kitchen with sweet messages and letterings. Have fun creating the best designs for your home.
