Contemporary Room Decor- Summer pt. 2- No Bad Days (this is so late)

I’m not sure why i bothered. This is so freaking late. I guess that’s why it’s contemporary room decor instead of summer room decor part two.  Anyways, this is the second part. These are just simple and cute room decor ideas that I thought were kind of contemporary.

Do any of you like Rise Against and Papa Roach? You guys should totally check them out!

Who’s been keeping up with Guilty Party? I missed a few vlogs, but I’ll try and catch up tomorrow. The plot is thickening! I wonder who Emma’s next target will be. Who took the photo of Preston and Charlie? I’m betting either Tess or Emma.

  1. Wall Hanging

You will need two colors of yarn and a wooden dowel. To embellish my dowel rod, I used a furniture stain touch-up marker to stain it a darker color

Step One. What you want to do first is take your two colors of yarn together and cuta long string. It should be double the length you want. Then, fold in half and slide under the dowel. The top part with the loop is the most important. You need to find it, and then you fold up the bottom and thread it through. One you are happy, you can stop and mole on to the tassel.

Step Two. To make the tassel, take your yarn and loop it multiple times around an object. I tried my fingers and almost cut off the circulation, so I wouldn’t recommend that. Then, slide it off and tie with another piece of yarn. Cut the loop so it actually looks like a tassel, then add to the dowel and hang on the wall to finish.

2. Copper Foil

You will need copper foil, black paint or ink and a Popsicle stick.

Step One. Cut a piece of copper foil. Trace a landscape onto the foil. I drew my landscape, but you can totally work off of a real image, it just may be a little more difficult. In order to get the image, lay your landscape over top the foil and trace hard with a pen to get an imprint.

Step Two. Flip your foil over, then look at the areas that you want to have sticking out. Go over them hard with a Popsicle stick so that they will stick out, then flip over and do the same for all areas you want sunken in.

Step Three, Take a sponge and cover your foil in black ink or paint. I used India ink, and it made the biggest freaking mess possible, so just keep that in mind if you are using ink. Let it mostly dry, then wipe off. To get a burnished effect, you may need to do it multiple times.

3. Jewellery Display

This one is more of a hack. You will need three pushpins of the same color.

Mark out where on the wall you want your hooks to be, and simply press the pushpins into the wall. Add your necklaces and other jewellery to finish

 

Sorry this was so late…. I should have some Halloween and fall decor up soon. I just need actual time to do the DIYs, and sometimes coming up with ideas is really difficult. But i really am trying. So yeah. Between school and homework, I ma not get it up until really late October, so just bear with me and check out The Lifestyle Of An Awkward Teen Almost Genius, my other blog.

I’ll see you guys in my next post, so until next time..

#LifeHack: DIY Halsey Inspired ‘Love From BADLANDS’ Postcard Door Hanger

Hello friends!

I must say, that I am a rather new addition to the Halsey fandom, but that’s okay.  For those of you who don’t know Halsey, you should really google her, because she is amazing. My favorite songs from her BADLANDS album are Castle, Gasoline, Strange Love and New Americana.

When Halsey released BADLANDS, there were so many extras that went along with it, including the ‘BADLANDS AIR’ travel agency. There were brochures for the ‘Badlands’ and some postcards. So I googled ‘halsey badlands postcard printable’ and came up with this DIY!

You will need a BADLANDS postcard template and string

The Only Step. Print out the postcard. Cut it out. Mine was kind of pixelated, so I went over the ‘send help’ in black pen. Fold so that you have two sides. Glue a piece of string along the fold line. Fold and glue together. Glue the string up along the sides and tie at the top. Now you can hang it on your door.

Thank you guys for reading my blog. Remember to follow my blog so that you don’t miss out on any posts and like this for more Halsey DIYs! You can check out my lifestyle blog here. I will see you guys soon with the last few posts in #TASHToSchool2017 :(. You guys are amazing! See you soon!

Tumblr Room Decor 2017!

I have not done a DIY post in like forever. So here I am. These are just pictures i had lying around, so there is no real professional photo of all the DIYs at the top, sorry. I was really busy and I;m actually leaving for camp in a few hours, so… yeah. How’s life? Who has seen the Singing Trump on America’s Got Talent? You NEED to see it! It is halfway between cringy and freaking hilarious!

  1. Memo Board

This one is more of a hack than a DIY and was inspired by Katherine Elizabeth on YouTube.

You will need a cooling rack (or a wire locker shelf, like I used)

The Only Step. Hang up the cooling rack. If you are using a wire locker shelf, remove the legs from the shelf and hang it up so that the things jutting out where the legs would be are on the outside to use to hang things up on. Decorate accordingly.

2. Fangirl Wall Art

You will need the definition of ‘fangirl’, some cardstock or scrapbook paper and decorations for your fandoms. Optional*** Duct Tape***

Step One. Print out the definition of fangirl and glue on to a cute background of either patterned cardstock or scrapbooking paper. ****OPTIONAL****Rim in duct tape

Step Two. Decorate with pictures of your fandom. You can also write some references like lyrics and slogans. Hang on your wall to finish.

3. Hanging Pixel Speech Bubbles

You will need pixel speech bubbles and yarn.

Step One. Print and cut out pixel speech bubbles. Flip them over and glue a length of yarn to the back.

Step Two. Tape to your ceiling so that they hang down. You can also tape them to the wall and it will look equally cool.

4. Summer Canvas

What reminds you of summer more than a watermelon? Exactly.

You will need an old canvas and red white, green and black paint.

Step One. Paint your canvas a base color. Once that dries, add as many coats as it take for it to be opaque.

Step Two. Paint on your lettering. I decided to use the words “# Endless Summer”. After that, paint on the watermelon seeds to finish.

 

I really hope that you guys enjoyed this DIY post. There will be more on my #TASHToSchool Series soon. I just  need to take pictures. Remember to like and follow to support LittleMissTalent on WordPress. It really helps and motivates me to kep going. Thank you all for reading!

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!

IMG_1733

  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.

IMG_1678

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.

IMG_1593

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.

IMG_1734

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!

Thank you so much for supporting my blog! To quote Cage the Elephant, I don’t do it for the glory, i don’t do it for the money, i don’t do it for the fame. I blog because i simply want to share my love of DIYs with you guys, so it would mean a lot if you clicked like and follow because helps me to know that people like my blog. Thank you so much,

Water Marble Mason Jar

Hey guys! Summer is sooooooo close now! I’m sorry i haven’t updated in a while, but i’ve been so busy. I have time now, so i’m going to post this one now. I did this so long ago and had the photo on my hard drive, so i thought it’s better late than never, right?

You will need a mason jar, nail polish and an old container

Step One. Clean the inside of your mason jar. In an old container, fill it with water to where you want the design to go up to. Pour in a few drop of nail polish. If you are more talented with water marbling, you can draw designs in there with toothpicks, but I’m not, so i left it as is.

Step Two. Dip your jar into the nail polish and leave it on a Kleenex or old cloth to dry. Dump out the water and wash the container. When the mason jar is dry, you can take a black marker and draw some kind of pattern on it, but this is optional. You may also choose to use a spray sealant, but i thought that nail polish was good enough on it’s own

Step Three. Fill the mason jar with random things you need to store. Mine has some chargers and two random erasers for some reason. To make it look cuter, i put a glitter hairtie around the top and wrote “UGH” on the lid.

Thank you guys so much for reading and let me know when my BTS 2017 series should start as i have some amaze ideas. Remember to follow me using the button on the totally overhauled homepage so that you don’t miss out. Stay Weird! (I totally stole that from a t-shirt, but whateves)

#LifeHack: Sort of Holographic Hexagon Wall Peices

Hello! Have you guys seen the music video for Alessia Cara’s Stay? It messed me up so much. So, the guy misses the elevator Alessia’s in, and then time just keeps resetting itself until he and Alessia go out, then he dies and everything just resets again. It’s crazy! Anyways, because it’s may and i needed to think (only think, haven’t actually done anything yet!) about spring cleaning. I took down a poster i’ve had for too long, but didn’t have anything to replace it, so i googled “cute Tumblr room decor” and found this. YOu can use holographic paper, i just only had tinfoil on hand.

You will need cardboard, tinfoil (or holographic paper) and *optional* Sharpies to doodle on the hexagons with.

Step One. If you are confident with your freehand skills, sketch out the shape of a hexagon. If not, simply find a template and trace it onto your cardboard. Make as many as you would like and cut them out.

Step Two. Cover each hexagon in tinfoil or holographic paper. If you wish, you can use your Sharpies to put designs on them. I used quotes and obscure references from “Stranger Things”, “The Librarians”, “Harry Potter”  and “The Outsiders”. I also wrote “ok no” and drew stripes on the rest. Tape or sticky tack to your wall to finish.

Thank you so much for reading my blog and following my posts. I am  quickly gaining popularity (i think), but i just do it because i enjoy it. It’s not a job or anything. Just letting you know. Remember to follow my blog so that you don’t miss out on my posts and leave a like if you like my #LifeHack collection! See ya’ll soon! Stay Gold!

PS. Only Outsiders fans will understand that reference at the end. So probably only me. Oh well!

Winter Room Decor!

Hey guys! Winter is almost over, thank Mother Nature for that! Then I realized that i haven’t done a seasonal room decor post yet. So, for the last little bit of winter, and of course next year! On a side note, a great movie to watch over March Break is “Non-Stop”, which is a Liam Neeson psych thriller about an  Air Marshall who gets cryptic messages from someone on the plane. Its really good and you would never expect the ending.

1.Hot Cocoa Mug Desk Organizer

Do you have a messy desk? Do you need somewhere to put your candy? If so, this DIY is perfect for you!

You will need a tin can or other container, duct tape and plain computer paper.

Step One. Cover your container in duct tape. If you have a solid color duct tape, you can draw a decal on it. I decided to draw in the Harry Potter glasses and lightning bolt scar. Cut a circle out of your computer paper. Glue to the bottom of your tin can.

Step Two. Cut a strip of paper. Curl so that it looks like the handle on a mug. Glue to the side.

IMG_1354

2.Olaf Wall Canvas

Contrary to the name, this is not really a canvas, but paper glued onto cardboard.

You will need a piece of cardboard and a printout of Olaf. I keep this up year round!

The Only Step. Print off your Olaf picture. I stretched mine to the margins in Word so that i had some white to fold over the sides. Cut your cardboard to fit the photo. Glue the picture down and fold the white over the sides to finish.

IMG_1355

3. Hot Cocoa Sign

This is probably the simplest DIY in this post.

All you need is three paint markers and a piece of paper

The Only Step. Use one paint marker to make the border. Use another to write “Hot Cocoa, Marshmallows and Warm Hugs”. On either side of the “and”, use your last paint marker to draw little arrows to finish.

IMG_1150

4. Henna Fan

This is another really simple DIY, and you can use it in just about any season. It is really relaxing to draw and i have so many of them!

You will need paper and a black marker

The Only Step. Turn your paper over to the corner. Make a black circle and start doodling outwards. To draw a henna pattern (or Mandala as they are commonly called), just try and make intricate but simple petal shapes or triangles and such and let the relaxation guide you.

“Stranger Things” Inspired Decor

“Who watches “Stranger Things”?” Mr Hollingsworth said. “Have you seen “Stranger Things”?” My cousin Jakob asked. “I’ve been meaning to watch “Stranger Things” when you girls go back to school” Mom said. We finally got around to it, and I love it! I was looking for the logo for another DIY and came across this generator which took your text and turned it into the “Stranger Things” logo, which was so cool. I thought that I would use it as decor, but it can be used for many other things. For example, if you typed “Nancy’s Notebook”, you could print it off full page and glue it to a notebook.
I used it as a sign reading “Natasha’s Room” for my door. To make this, go to http://makeitstranger.com/. Type in what you want and press download. Press print and you are ready to go!

 1. Kitten Mason Jar

You will need a mason jar, paints and a paintbrush ***Optional*** Fragrance Mist

Step 1. Open your jar. If yours has a really and i mean REALLY bad scent, you might want to spray it with some fragrance mist before painting. I made the mistake of not doing this and it nearly ruined the DIY. Mix your paint color and do two coats on your jar.

Step 2. Paint the face. I painted a kitten but you can paint any face that you want. Fill with things and you are done!

IMG_1069.JPG

2. Random mid-size Organizer
