Decorating your room on a budget is hard. But with a few fun and easy ideas, you will be able to transform your room in no time.
Ribbons used to be something for your hair. Now they are something you can use for your bedroom window. Depending on the height and width of your window, the amount of ribbons may vary. But with just a handful, you will easily create a new ribbon curtain.
You will need to make sure your window has a rod (the stick in which a curtain is held). If not, you should ask your parents to provide you with one. Aside from that, you will need 10-20 ribbons and a pair of scissors — just in case you want to make your ribbons shorter.
Then, your first step will be to collect all of your ribbons. Make sure a window rod is tightly secured. If there was no rod before, have your parent or an adult help install one for you. Grab a ribbon from the edge and make a small knot on the rod. There should be more ribbon hanging than what is actually tied. Repeat the process until you are satisfied with the results!
Music makes everyone happy. So why not have music notes on your wall!
You will need to make sure you have a roll of thick tape, black paint, painting brush, access to a computer and printer, regular tape, and a pair of scissors.
With the consent of an adult, you should first log on to the internet and print out any music note shape you want. By searching on Yahoo! Or Google, you should find different music notes in all shapes and sizes. Make sure each note you print out, however, is the same size. Then, print out and cut out all of the music notes.
When you are done cutting out all the shapes, grab your roll of thick tape and tape it to an area on the wall. You will do this 5 times since there are 5 staffs in music. Before you do anything else, tape another piece of tape in-between each section. Now with your black paint, begin to paint every other piece of tape. The pieces in-between are so you will not dirty your bedroom wall.
Wait about 30 to 40 minutes for the paint to dry. Once you are done, cut pieces of regular tape to put your music notes up on your wall.
Now sit back and enjoy the music!
Sometimes when we are going through a rough couple of days, it is very easy to forget things you have to do and things you have to achieve. Why not make a goal board? Force yourself to reach your goals for the day or week by creating a poster where you will get to see them every day.
You will need one poster board for your goal board. You can choose the size depending on the area where you will place your poster board. Good news! Poster boards are super cheap and can normally be found for about $0.50 – $2.00 at your local convenience store! The next thing you will need is a pack of standard size post it notes (3 in). Finally, you will need a pack of markers.
Now you can start being a goal setter!
The top portion of your poster-board (vertically) will be dedicated to the tile of your poster. Go ahead and write (however you may please), “Goal List for”. Then next to those words, you will trace a post it note. You can write “This week,” but it is really up to you whether you wish to write “this year” , “today” , “this hour.” Be sure to decorate this top portion with your markers. Doodle. Be creative!
Now to the bottom portion ….. Go ahead and trace six post it notes in the bottom. Three post it notes should be on the top and three other ones should be in the bottom. Now write your goals! Once you’ve completed them, take the post it note and throw it away. Time to post a new one!
