Whether you’re a teen or in your 20’s, boho style is super popular for a good reason.
Whether you want to call it boho style, gypsie, hippie or bohemian, making your own hippie craft ideas is a terrific hobby and inexpensive way when you’re decorating on a budget.
Here’s a round-up of 16 awesome and easier DIY bohemian crafts to inspire you and help decorate your space, whether it be your first house, dorm room or bedroom.
If you’re curious (or in a hurry):
Gypsie Hammock Swing
Instructions by Crafty Goodies
This super amazing DIY boho swing is another one of the most popular projects with our readers!
Making your own swing is easier than it sounds. My neighbor recently made this exact same project for her young daughter and it turned out adorable (I think we need to ask her to sneak a pic for the blog ;).
Making a DIY swing is perfect for decorating your small bedroom and helps save on valuable floor space.
DIY Boho Mobile
The link wasn’t working, so I don’t know who to give credit to for this amazing feather design. I’m hoping it will inspire you to create your own using pliable branches, wire, beads, string and feathers.
You could try wrapping the feather ends with strips of gold duct tape to attach it to the string.
DIY Beaded Boho Pillow
Madi and I just spent 2.5 hrs at the craft store looking for supplies to make a variation of this stunning boho pillow! As soon as she gets it done we’ll post a photo! Starting with basic pillows or pillow covers and adding inexpensive craft store accents is an easy and cheap way to create your own custom DIY boho pillow.
Purchased pillows with all the beads, tassels and gems can get pricey, why not make your own boho pillow with tassels?

DIY Boho Candle Holder
Instructions by Hayseed Homemakin’
This is another fabulous boho craft idea that’s stylish, quick and cheap. You can easily use a dollar store jar and head to the craft store to get a bag of feathers and glitter ribbon of your choice.
Grouping multiple candle holders of different sizes makes even more of a decorative impact.

Hey, I love these projects. But I wanted to bring up that “G*psy” is actually a racial slur, and shouldn’t be used synonymously with “bohemian”.
