DIY room ideas

Here is just a few ideas to help you spice up your room using things that you can find around the house I hope you enjoy :) -

Idea 1 :
Glitter lanterns

You will need-

  • An empty jam jar
  • Glitter
  • PVA glue
  • A sponge
  • A candle

Firstly wash out your jar until its squeaky clean and dry it , make sure the label is completely off. With a sponge cover the inside in PVA glue make sure there is no gaps. Tip some glitter into the jar and turn the jar round so the glitter covers the edges (choose any colour ) tip out  the excess and wait for  it to dry. Once it's dry cover it in another layer of glue and wait again. Put a candle into the jar and there you have it - a beautiful lantern perfect for spicing up your room!

Idea 2 :
Picture frame wall

You will need-

  • A load of old picture frames
  • Paint
  • Pictures and wallpaper

 This is optional but if you want a more co-ordinated look paint all your frames to match (gold looks pretty).
Arrange your frames on the floor to your liking then  choose some wallpaper or pictures off Google then print them to fit your frames.
Hang up your frames and VOILA your blank wall looks beautiful.

This idea would be great for that one boring wall in your room .

Idea 3:
Basket shelves

You will need-

  • Baskets
  • Nails
  • Hammer
  • Electric drill

All you need to do is drill a hole  in the wall and hammer through the shelves into the wall (don't forget to ask a parent for help if you need it ) . Also there is a thing that you need to put into the hole before you hammer it through you could probably Google it or ask someone else that might know.

Idea 4:
Good things jar

You will need-

  • A jar
  • Post its
  • sharpie 

There are tonnes of videos on YouTube about this and honestly I don't know who originally came up with it but I thought I might share it with you if you haven't heard of it before. This one is probably the easiest all you do is write the coming year e.g. 2014 (in the picture I could  only find a 2013 one) and every time something good happens you write it on a post it fold it up and put it in your jar. then at the end on the year you can look back at all the good things that happened to you!

Idea 5:
Picture name

  • A camera
  • some printed off letters
  • A frame with as many sections as letters in you name (e.g. Georgia you would need 7 but Alex only 4)

For this all you need to do is take pictures of yourself or your family holding printed out letters from your name then frame it. You could hang this on your wall above your bed or something and I think it looks really cute :)
