Spring Cleaning Tips + Flower Garland Room DIY

Hello everyone! As promised, I will be doing a DIY today! But first, I would just like to quickly apologize about my slight absence from the blogging world. I had a family issue and wasn't able to be connected, but that's all over, so I am back! Now, let's get into the post :D

 
 yay title pic XD
 
 
TIP 1: Clean out that shame-space.
 
We all know that one spot. That spot where you throw all of your stuff that you don't know where to put. Face it, and clean it out. You might even end up finding some old stuff that you thought was lost.
 
 
TIP 2: Clean your bed first.
 
Even though it is a small spot, cleaning the bed is the big deal. Take all of those clothes and books off and put them in their spots, make the bed, and...woah...your room looks like 10 times cleaner.
 
TIP 3: Listen to music.
 
This may be the stupidest tip ever but, listening to music makes it much more fun. I think that's common sense, considering music makes almost everything better, but still, LISTEN TO MUSIC.
 
 
DIY: Flower Garland for your room.
 
You Will Need
-Colored tissue paper
-Tape or stapler
-Thick and thin string
-Scissors
 
STEP 1: Make the tissue paper balls
 
 
Rip (or cut if you want to be exact) pieces of tissue paper and roll them up in balls. (You can have your younger sibling do this if you want, my little cousin had a blast rolling them up :P)
 
 
STEP 2: Attach tape to your balls
 
 
 
Take your thin string (I used green thread to make it look like stems for flowers) and attach it to the back of your tissue clumps (you'll have to unroll your balls first) and clump them back up. Now, make sure you leave some thread at the end for tying. Now cut.
 
 
STEP 3: Attach the balls to the thick string.
 
Take your thick string or yarn (I actually fingerknitted a thin scarf with some colored yarn)
 
 blurry, sorry :/
 
 
I then took my balls and tied them (using the little tail of string we left) to my yarn. This takes time, so be patient. I would also suggest double or even triple knotting them.
 
 
 
blurry again :(
 
STEP 4: Display!
 
 
 
I decided to display mine over my whiteboard, but you can do it wherever you want! I would suggest above your bed, or above your door, but anywhere looks great! (PS, double tape it, it falls down easily)
 
 
I hope you enjoyed and I just wanted to let you know, the contest winners will be announced next post :)
 
Mkay bye,
Noor

  5. That's so beautiful! :D I made a similar thing but with origami paper butterflies. Maybe I should combine yours and mine to make butterflies chasing flowers. :) (Btw, I tagged you for the Liebster Award like 4 posts ago, but I wasn't sure if you saw it so I'm just letting you know!)
