3 Cheap DIY Marble Room Decor Ideas

Today, I'm going to show you how to make three cheap DIY marble room decor ideas and these are all really easy DIY room decor ideas. For the first idea I will show you how to make a marble pencil holder, then I will show you how to make frame art with a marble background, and for the last idea I will show you how to make a marble tray.

For the marble part of these DIY marble decor ideas is made out of normal printer paper but you could use photo paper if you wanted because it gives off a shine like how marble does. I think all of these are really cute room decor ideas.


Marble Pencil Holder


Marble Pencil Holder

The first idea I'm going to show you is this pencil holder. The DIY marble pencil holder is made out of a tin can but you can use anything that you want for the base and you can even paint the marble onto the base that you choose for your pencil holder if you want.

What you will need for this idea is a tin can, scissors, a pencil, a ruler, a glue gun, and you will need to print out some marble onto some photo paper or normal paper and both types of paper will work fine for this idea.



The first thing you want is that if you happen to have no marble around the marble that you printed out, you want to cut around the marble to cut the blank paper off and then you want to place the can at the top of the back of the piece of paper and mark where you would like the marble to stop with a pencil.


Now you can take a ruler and measure from the top of the paper to the mark so you can put another mark on the other side and then you can draw a straight line from mark to mark with the ruler and the pencil.

Then, you can cut on the line to get a strip of paper to go around the tin can.


The last thing you have to do is to place the can in the middle on the back of the marble paper and take the glue gun and put a line of glue on the can and take one side of the strip of paper and put it onto the glue.



Do the same thing for the other side of the strip of paper.



Now the can is done and you can put anything that you want into the can.

Marble Frame Art Idea

For the second idea I'm going to show you this frame art idea.

What you will need for this idea is a frame, scissors, a pencil, and a design. For the DIY marble frame art idea you can make any design that you want in Canva, PicMonkey, or any design program. You just want to make sure you put marble in the background of the design.



The first thing you want to do is trace the front or the back of the frame around the design and cut the extra paper you don't want off so it can fit into the frame.


Now all you have to do is put it into the frame and put it anywhere you would like on your desk or your wall.


Marble Tray


Marble Tray

For the last idea I'm going to show you this tray idea.  For the DIY marble tray you can try to print on a bigger piece of paper if you have a printer that can do that if you want because it will be a a lot easier and you won't see a line between each of the pieces of paper.

What you will need for this idea is a tray, one or a few pieces of marble paper, it will depend on the size of your tray for the amount of pieces of marble paper you will need to print out. I used two pieces of marble paper for mine. You will also need scissors, a pencil, tape, and a ruler. You can also paint the tray any color that you want.


The first thing you want to do is to cut around the extra paper that's not marble off and make sure you try to keep the sides of the paper even.

Then you want to place one of the pieces of paper into the tray and mark off how much you need to cut off with a pencil.


Now you can take a ruler and make a straight line for how much you need to cut off and cut the extra paper off.

For the second paper you can trace the first piece of paper around the back of the next piece of paper and cut the extra paper off.


Now you want to place both pieces of paper into the tray and make sure they fit into the tray and you want to see where you want the paper to line up in the middle. You basically want it to look like both pieces of marble paper blend together good.

Then you want to cut off the extra paper you don't want.


If you want you can put some paper under the marble paper so you don't see the bottom of the tray.


The last thing you have to do is tape or you can also glue the paper onto the bottom of the tray and if you put paper behind the marble paper make you tape that paper down too. Make sure where the marble meets is taped down flat.


Now you can put anything you want onto the tray like your necklaces or books.
