Christmas Lights: Are they cliché? Maybe. Are they cute? Yes. But you can always change it up a bit to make your room stand out and! You could get flower string lights, paper lantern string lights or the standard white Christmas lights. You can use clothes pins to attach photos to your lights. I hung icicle lights around my bed to imitate the look of a canopy bed.
Vinyl Wall Decals: Wall decals are one of my favorite ways to customize a room. It’s easy to buy customized wall decals online. Quotes, monograms, and decorative designs are great ways to give your bedroom just what it needs. If you’re interested in creating your own vinyl decals, check out the Silhouette Cameo.
Collection Display: Do you collect hats, sunglasses, or bows? Instead of hiding them from the world and creating clutter, why not display them? Hats can easily be hung up with push pins, nails, or command hooks. A coat hanger makes a perfect rack for sunglasses, and ribbon works great to display bows. Shadow boxes are also perfect to show off your collection, weather it be stamps, keys, or cards.
Contact Paper: Contact paper is a simple and easy way to dress up furniture. If you don’t know what contact paper is, it’s basically just a huge sticker. It’s super easy to apply and, not only does it add a splash of color, but it also prevents stains on your furniture. I put some contact paper on my bookshelf and my dresser drawers. Wash the surface beforehand…and don’t blame me if you peel off paint or something.
Glitter: Glitter is my absolute favorite way to turn something boring into something cute. I’ve put glitter on lamps, scissors, iPhone chargers, headphones, OneCard holders, staplers, makeup brushes, glass jars, piggy banks, pencil sharpeners, hole punchers, hair brushes, tissue boxes, lighters, keys…and everything else I own in the process. It’s really simple. Basically it’s: a layer of Modge Podge, a layer of glitter, a layer of Modge Podge, a layer of glitter, & then one last layer of Modge Podge to seal it in.
