DIY is a fab way to update your home without breaking the bank.

Creating items yourself can save you money while still achieving a luxury finish.

And one woman has created a gorgeous LED wall feature using just a few pounds and some creative thinking.

Maria Smith spent the weekend working on her “recycled project” using bits and pieces she had at home.

Posting in a popular Facebook DIY group she explained that she had purchased some fairy lights and clear lacquer spray.

She shared some snaps of her creation on the group and people were impressed, reports The Sun.

Maria created the pretty piece using twigs from her garden.

She wrote: "This is my first recycled Wall Art project.

“Cost me just the lights from B&M at £3.99 used two sets in the end and Wilko clear lacquer spray at £5.50 Paint I already had.”

She continued: “The branches were from the woods whilst walking with my son and dog – that were lying on the ground, no trees were harmed – Wood glue, which I had already, and a few nails to connect the wood together.

“The wood was old bits of wood which I was going to throw away.

“Total cost £13.48.”

The post racked up over 23,000 Facebook likes.

Thousands praised her clever work and said they loved the design.

Others were shocked at the low cost.

To make the frame, Maria explained: “I had some old bits of wood in the shed and nailed them together.

“Could use any wood and then paint it."

She continued: "I had just used what I had in my shed.

“As I was clearing my shed out and didn’t want to throw things away.

“So thought I would recycle.”

One person commented: “That’s so lovely, it’s so calming.”
