We love the collected, eclectic look that comes with adding natural elements like crystals and geodes into your home. And while you can’t go wrong with plants and flowers, gems and minerals add a certain positive vibe with shimmering textures, geometric shapes and cool colors.

Whether you want the rugged look of geodes or some gilded agates, these 25 DIYs are sure to make a sparkly statement wherever you decide to display them.
