Summer Room Decor pt.1: Pastel Vibes

The summer is actually boring me to half-death right now. I have only journaled and listened to a weird mix of Cage the Elephant, Billy Talent and AC/DC using CDs i borrowed from my dad. Ha. I was so busy the last few months that i never got around to spring room decor and fashion advice. Sorry! To make up for it, I’m doing a two-part room decor. The Christmas haul has been discontinued, because July is too late to finish it. This post is more spring decor, but can show the pastel pink side of the summer. It should really be called flamingo vibes, but oh well? Let’s get started!

  1. Floral Box

You will need a wooden box, acrylic paint and a small hand mirror.

Step One. Paint the box a base color. I used a pale blue. Next, what you want to do is the rose. It’s kind of difficult to explain. Paint a pink circle and wait for it to dry. Then, using red, just paint a center and some curved lines. It’s better if you actually watch a video that explains it. JENerationDIY did a floral letter DIY where she’s definitely going to have a better tutorial.

Step Two. Let it dry. Open the box and glue the hand mirror to the center of the underside of the lid. This is totally optional, i just thought it looked really cute.

2. Pom-Pom Pillow

You will need a white pillowcase, a sharpie or iron-on paper and yarn.

Step One. Smooth out your pillowcase and write your quote. If you don’t want to freehand with a Sharpie like I did, you can totally use iron-on transfer paper and just follow the directions on the package. Because I am in love with the new ‘Beauty and the Beast’, I decided to use a quote from the song ‘Tale As Old As Time’.

Step Two. Make the pom-poms. To make the pom-pom, simply wrap the yarn around any object multiple times until you get a size that looks about right. Tie in the middle. You want this tie to be incredibly tight. Use scissors and cut the ends away. Fluff it up a little so that it looks like a pom-pom. You can make as many or as little as you’d like. Now you just need to attach to the pillow.

3. Movie Quote Heart

You will need paint, sharpie, colored pens and cardboard

Step One. Pick a movie quote. mine was more of a book quote, but it did come form a movie that was based off a book. Call me obsessed, but it’s a low-key ‘Outsiders’ reference, and my favorite Dallas Winston quote. Cut a heart out of cardboard and paint it any color. I used a vibrant pink.

Step Two. Once it dries, write your quote on with Sharpie and colored pens, then glam it  up a little bit with sketches of hearts and mandalas and such. It looks really cute on your wall.

4. TV Show Quote Coasters

You will need bar coasters, acrylic paint and printouts.

Step One. In Microsoft Word, or WordPad or such, Make four boxes. Go on Google and find some cute background images. Put them in the boxes. Now, simply type quotes from your favorite TV Shows on the square and print the page out. If you already have paper, like this really cute scrapbook paper MissMikaylaG had with all these quotes on there, you can totally use that.

Step Two. Paint the underside of the bar coasters and wait for them to dry. Glue the quote square on top and trim to fit. You may also want to cover the top in some of sort of sealant just to make sure it doesn’t get ruined, right!
