DIY Holiday Room Decor

Hello everyone! It's getting colder, winter is here. We must prepare. AND DECORATE! Today I have 3 DIYs for you so you can spice up your room for the winter/holiday time. These are fairly easy and took me around 5-10 minutes each!

Also, see anything different with the blog? ;) I decorated! I love the header especially, the font is like my best friend xD


DIY #1 - Gift Bow Wreath


You Will Need


- A wreath mold: You can make one out of paper/cardboard, or you can buy a premade one (like I did)
-Gift bows: You can get these pretty much anywhere during this season :P
-Hot glue or some sort of adhesive: this is optional, but sometimes the backing on the bows doesn't stick. If you have a paper mold, you should be fine with this. 


STEP 1 

This is TOTALLY self explanatory, all you gotta do is stick the bows onto the mold. You can layer, and do whatever you think is good :) I only did the bows on the front, but putting bows on the side is also an option :) 



Now, you can tape ribbon or string to the back and hang it somewhere! Enjoy :)



DIY #2 - Popsicle Stick Snowflakes


You Will Need:
-Popsicle sticks (a lot, at least more than 40 to make one big one)
-Glue (Mod Podge or hot glue works the best)
-Paint (optional)


STEP 1

You can either paint the sticks first or after, it's up to you. I did it before but I didn't take any pictures. 

I'm going to teach you how to make a giant snowflake, and you can mix it up however way you want to :)



1) Make a star sort of shape. Start with an X and then take two sticks and lay them across. 
2) Sort of 'connect' them to make triangles (you can leave it like this)
3) Glue a stick vertically in the middle of each triangle thing
4) Glue a stick across each vertical stick to create a cross!

You can mix and match and do it however you want, remember every snowflake is different!

I would suggest painting BOTH sides of the popsicle sticks if you're planning to hang them. 

Enjoy!



DIY #3 - Paper Christmas Light Garland


You Will Need:

-Colored paper
-Scissors
-String

STEP 1:

From your paper, cut out multiple tear drops. I did these in multicolors but you can also make them white or yellow.

And then, cut out a rectangle from yellow, gold, white, or silver paper to make the little attachment at top. Glue it to the bigger end of the teardrop and cut around to fit. 


STEP 2:

Now you can tape some string on it to form a garland! And then hang it up :D

Another option is that if you have actual lights, you can stick them onto the lights, like I did!



Those are all the DIYs I have for you today! Hopefully, I'll have my ROOM TOUR (!!) up on Tuesday so you can get more holiday inspiration from there :)

I forgot to mention, if anyone would like a blog design, just email me (email is on contact page) and I'll totally help out!


Let me know how you prepare your space for winter, I'd love to know!

Thanks for reading,
Noor

  7. Hey Noor, this has nothing to do with this post. I was just wondering if I could do a guest post? I mean if you'd allow me too, and in return you could do a guest post on my blog!
