This year I’ve decided to add a little Christmas decor to my bedroom. I’ve always dreamed of having every room in the house decorated to the nines for Christmas. You know, just like in magazines.
I was just thinking that when I was raising my kids while working a full-time job, my Christmas decorating consisted of:
Put a tree up in the living room, maybe hang a wreath on the front door, throw a “pretty” towel on the sink in the powder room and call it done!
Now I think I can do a little more. So I am challenging myself to add some Christmas decor to my bedroom for as little money as possible. The first thing I did was make was a pretty Snowflake Banner to hang across the top of the curtains. (Although, it may end up across the dresser mirror. We’ll see.)
Decorating my bedroom for Christmas is quite a challenge for a few reasons. First and foremost: my bedroom is orange. I know, who does that???? Well I guess if you’re feeling generous, you could call it coral. I talked about how and why my bedroom is orange here.
I said there are a few reasons that the bedroom would be a challenge to decorate for Christmas, didn’t I? Well, I guess there’s only the one. But isn’t decorating an orange, er, I mean coral room for Christmas challenge enough!?!
But I think I’m up for the challenge!
I made the snowflake banner by first layering snowflakes that I cut with my Silhouette®.
Then I added a paper rosette on top of the snowflake.
Next I attached a glittered circle, a plain white circle and then finally a glittered letter.
All of the layers were adhered with 3D foam square.
A little trick I use for adhering letters……
Silhouette owners: have you tried cutting glitter card stock and ended up with the card stock sliding around on the mat? I have a tip for you: tape down the edges to the mat with painter’s tape. It works!
So far I have spent ZERO, ZIP, ZILCH, NADA on my Christmas bedroom decor (I used supplieS I already had to make the banner).
How about you? Do you have a room that is a challenge to decorate for the holidays, too? Do you decorate every room in your home? I would love to hear how you do it!
