Do you ever wish that you were on a beautiful, tropical island surrounded by water and warm sand? Well, here is an alternative to making a long trip and spending wild amounts of money: Decorating a corner of your room so that it’ll magically transport you to your favorite beach! Take a few random items and put them all together on your wall to create a small vacation shrine.
What you’ll need:
• Tissue paper
• Construction paper (any color)
• Thumb tacks
• Anything that reminds you of summer
• Baseball hat
• Potted plant
• Patches (here’s a link that’ll show you how to make them)
• Anything that reminds me of summer time
• Fake flowers
How to do it:
Make a tassel garland using this tutorial!
Once you have completed the garland, stick one thumb tack to each end and then attach the garland to your wall.
Draw as many palm leaves as you want onto your construction paper. Cut them out, and use tape to stick them on the wall. I love these, because they are so simple and cute!
Use tape to place your favorite postcards on the wall. I chose postcards from Santorini, Greece!
On some construction paper, draw and cut out a hawaiian shirt (you can decorate with markers)! Or, if you have access to a color printer, just go ahead and print a hawaiian shirt. Stick to your wall using tape or a thumbtack.
Grab another thumbtack, stick it into the wall, and then hang the keychain on it.
With a few fake flowers, you can make a mini version of Kianaheart’s “hanging flowers.” In this video she shows you how to make one! Once you’ve done that, you can hang it wherever you like.
If you have any empty spaces that need to be filled in, pull out your sticker sheet and get to sticking.
Off to the side, you can hang your summery baseball hat; attach it to the wall using a thumbtack.
You can thumbtack patches onto the wall, too. I made these patches with summer in mind!
Bring the outdoors in by placing a potted plant off to one side.
Then you are done with this all over the place, summer room DIY!
Hope you all enjoyed and make sure to have fun! ♦
