No worries if your room looks plain and boring.
In this video I'll show you 10 beautiful winter inspired decorating ideas, which will make
your room look amazeballs. [MUSIC PLAYING] [GASP] Santa!!! (Santa Falls) Hey loves! ever since I posted my first DIY
room decor tutorial I've been getting so many requests for another episode. So I thought
why not! And since we are approaching Christmas, these decorations are perfect for this time
of the year, but many are also more winter inspired, so you can totally make them when
Christmas is over too.
I'm going to show you 10 beautiful ideas, including this one, which
will make your room look like a proper winter wonderland. OK, enough talking, let's get
down to business. We're going to kick off with this beautiful
pine tree pillow case, which is a great decoration for all year around plus you can make it for
very cheap. We'll need a plain pillow case, some patterned fabric, a piece of brown fabric
or felt and fabric glue. Fold one side corner in like that. Apply some glue and fold the
opposite corner over it. Apply the glue also on the bottom part of your tree and fold that
little triangle up. You get a beautiful pine tree shape, with perfectly neat edges completely
without sewing. I love using patterned fabric pieces because they just make the pillow more
interesting and full. I made one more green and red tree, but this time using a bit smaller
pieces of fabric so I got slightly smaller pine trees. Of course every tree also has
a trunk, so lets cut four rectangles from a brown piece of felt or any other fabric
of your choice.
We are now all ready to glue our pine trees on the pillow. Happy dance,
woohoo! Apply a bit of glue on the back of each pine beauty and place it onto the pillow
case. I like that my trees overlap a bit so it looks more realistic. I'm also I am gluing
some trees a bit higher than the others to add some dimension. In the end we have to
glue the four trunks under each of our beautiful pine trees. Voila, we are finished with this
gorgeous pine tree pillow, which looks great in your bedroom or living room. I had these
green pillows on my sofa from before so I thought a pine tree pillow with some green
and red will complement them perfectly. I wasn't wrong – I love how everything turned
out! A very easy and super adorable winter decor
ideas are these sweater candles. All you need is a candle, a glass and a sock or a sleeve
of an old sweater. Put the glass into the sock opening and cut away the excess.
to leave some extra fabric, which I then tuck under the glass. Put the candle into the glass
and you have the cutest winter candles ever. These literally take a minute to make and
they look so beautiful, warm and cozy. This kind of DIYs are my favorite – quick, easy
and stunning! A really cool and inexpensive decoration for
the winter time is this pine tree bouquet with orange and pasta ornaments. To get the
pine branches we're going to first take a little walk in the woods.
I'm lucky enough
to have one right behind my apartment. Find a pine tree or any other tree really and cut
a couple of branches. Mine are ready so let's quickly get back home and make a beautiful
room decoration! Besides branches you will also need a couple of oranges, glue gun and
string plus bow shaped pasta and spray paint. First we're going to paint our pasta! Protect
the working surface with a cardboard paper or a plastic bag, place on your pasta and
spray it on both sides. In a minute you are left with beautiful golden bow ornaments.
Now we need to make our orange ornaments as well.
Cut quarter of an inch wide slices of
orange like that. Yum, I love orange so much. Especially now that they are in season they
taste so good. Place the slices on a baking tray and bake at 240 Fahrenheit for 3 hours.
While baking the orange slices will dry, harden and shrink a bit. Take them out of the oven
and let's work on the hangers. Make a hole using a needle and lead a string through it.
I am using a golden string, which goes perfectly with our gold bow pasta. Make a knot and we
are ready to hang our orange ornaments on the pine branches. I love how these look.
You can also decorate your Christmas tree using these beautiful dried orange slices.
To attach the pasta bows simply apply a bit of glue at the back of each bow and stick
them on the branches.
How pretty, right! Using orange and pasta to create such a gorgeous
decoration may seem crazy but I think we all agree that the result is stunning. I just
love making unique and inexpensive crafts like this one. On top of that oranges smell
so nice you won't need to burn any scented candles at all! Time to make this gorgeous winter wall art,
with snowman and a little quote. We need a canvas, a palette, blue and white acrylic
paint, sponge applicator and optionally – some water. Let's make a blue gradient for the
background. Squeeze some dark blue paint on a palette. Dip the sponge in the water and
then into the paint. Color the upper edge of your canvas making a wide blue stripe like
that. The background should be darkest on top and lightest on the bottom, so to get
a slightly lighter blue shade, mix in a bit of white. Then color the section below the
darkest blue with the lighter blue shade and blend the two colors together.
For an even
lighter blue color add more white acrylic paint and color the section below our previous
color. Continue these steps by adding more and more white paint until your canvas is
all covered in the pretty blue gradient. Color the bottom part using pure white paint to
represent the snow on the ground. Alright now it's time to print out our quote, there's
snowplace like home in a big heart. Of course we also need to print out a snowman. Cut the
heart and the snowman out. How cute is he?! Apply some glue on the back of the snowman
and the heart, and stick them on to the canvas. You can get a lot of snowman pictures on the
internet. So just google it and you will find a lot of results. You can of course be creative
and instead of the snowman you can print other pictures, like a house, a Christmas tree,
anything you like! The options are endless! To make this wall art extra wintery draw a
lot of white snowflakes all over the canvas using a small paint brush.
If you want an
extra little detail you can add some silver glitter paint on top of each snowflake. Plus
I decided to make a shade under the snowman using a pencil to make a picture more realistic.
To bring together the canvas with the printed snowman and the heart cover the entire canvas
with a very thin layer of mod podge. I do suggest using a photo paper when printing
out your pictures instead of a regular paper. This canvas is a great winter decor for your
room or the entrance of your house. Here in Norway it can get pretty cold outside so I
am always so happy when I get home from the wind, rain or snow. So for me the quote "there's
snowplace like home" is absolutely perfect. Another DIY and another walk in the woods.
This time I am picking up pine-cones, acorns and these balls, which I don't even know what
they're called. Have some fun exploring and pick whatever you find where you live. I decided
to spray paint just the balls, while I am keeping pine-cones and acorns natural. Leave
the paint to dry for a minute and mix all of these beauties together.
Put them into
any kind of transparent vase or even a bowl and you get a gorgeous decoration perfect
for fall and winter. I love going outside, and bringing home pieces of nature. I think
such natural decorations give so much life and joy to my apartment. Now I am going to show you how to make this
pretty and warm sock. Just kidding we are making a stocking! Because, where will Santa
otherwise leave all our presents, right?! You will need any fabric of your choice, some
white furry material, which is optional, stocking stencil and fabric glue. First we need to
cut two stocking shapes from our fabric.
You can just do it directly but I like to use
a stencil to get a perfect shape. Place some tape pieces on the stencil and then stick
it on your fabric. Cut it out using scissors or an exacto knife. Take the other piece of
fabric and now we have to cut out a mirror image of the first stocking shape. To do that
we need to peel of the tape pieces on this side of the stocking, flip the stencil around
and stick the tape pieces on that side.
Cut out the stocking shape. If you want you can
totally have the same fabric on both sides of your stocking. I happen to have slightly
different pattern, but that's OK! When both stocking sides are cut out it's time to glue
them together. Apply a stripe of fabric glue all around the edges of one stocking side.
Oh no what a troll, of course I shouldn't apply glue on that upper part because that's
where the stocking needs an opening. How else would Santa put the presents into our stocking
if it would be sealed all around. After about fifteen minutes the glue should be completely
dry and you can flip your stocking inside out. Cut about ten inch stripe from your fabric.
We will use it as a hanger for the stocking. Glue the stripe ends together. While the glue
dries let's apply an awesome fur ending to the socking. Or you can use some other fabric
that you find, like white felt for example.
Apply two parallel stripes of glue on the
top edge of the stocking where you have the opening. Do this all around the stocking so
that the entire top part is wrapped in the cozy faux fur. In the end tuck the part sticking
out into the sock for an even neater look. The only thing left to do is gluing the hanger
on the back part of the stocking and we are done. Now we are all ready for the Santa's
visit. So.. we're waiting, Santa, we're waiting for you! I really like how this stocking turned
out, it looks so professionally made. You can also use this as a gift wrapping idea
and fill this stocking with little presents for a friend or boyfriend.
be so happy to receive such an awesome gift! Clay stars are such an awesome and versatile
decor idea that you can actually make all year around. Hang them on your window, wall
or even use them to decorate your Christmas tree. We're going to need different colors
of clay, star cookie cutter and dough roller. Roll the colors of your choice into strips
like this. I have white, minty green, glittery grey and blue. I went for more wintery, frosty
colors as you can tell. twist all the strips together and note that the more you twist,
the more marbley your stars are going to be. I want my design to be pretty full so I decided
to roll my clay again and twist it like that. Have fun and play with it so that the clay
colors mix together.
Then form the clay into a little marble ball. Place it on the flat
surface and use a roller or something rounded like a vase or a bottle to flatten it. Take
a star shaped cookie cutter and press it on the clay to get beautiful clay stars. I seriously
feel like I'm baking cookies, no joke, I just want to eat these so badly. To make these
stars easy to hang once they harden, we also need to make a small hole using a needle.
My clay is air drying so I have to wait for a few hours for the stars to dry and harden,
but you can bake them and speed up the process. These beautiful stars are now all dry so use
the hole we made earlier to tie on a piece of thread. We are finally ready to decorate
the room with these beautiful marbley stars.
I already plan to make these using bright
clay colors for the spring and summer because this DIY is just so much fun. Want your room to look like a real winter
wonderland? This frozen candle will help you get just that. To make it we need a vase,
snow spray, artificial snow, and a candle. Now let's put our winter wonderland candle
Take a piece of paper and sketch a zig zag line all along like that. We are
creating a stencil that will help us make the perfect ice stalactites. Cut along the
sketched line using your scissors. This shape really reminds me of scary teeth of a shark
or some other beast. Relax, Sara, it's just a paper. Ok, take your vase and wrap the stencil
As you can see the top of the vase stays uncovered and this is where we will
apply the snow. Take your artificial snow and spray it all around the vase until the
top edge is completely covered and you can't see any transparent parts. I really love this
spray as it makes everything look so wintery in a second. After a few minutes the snow
on our vase sets and we can remove the stencil. Here we have them – perfect ice stalactites
all around the edge of our vase. Now what's left for us to do is to pour in some artificial
snow and place a candle in the middle. This is such a fun DIY to make and I think it really
turned out epic. In the evenings I like to turn all the lights off and I light this candle
– it seriously looks so gorgeous. This could also be a great gift for a friend, your mom
or anyone that likes candles and pretty decorating pieces. Now let's make this beautiful mittens pillow,
which is a perfect decorating piece for Christmas and winter on general.
You will need a cheap
pillow case, some patterned fabric, a piece of white fabric, yarn and fabric glue. First
we need to cut a mitten shape out of the fabric. Find a stencil of your choice on the internet
– I typed mittens stencil, got many pictures and chose this one. Print it and then cut
it out with scissors. To keep the stencil in place while cutting the fabric, we need
to stick some tape pieces on one side.
Flip the fabric so that the wrong side is facing
up and stick on the fabric. Now we can easily cut a perfect mitten shape and the stencil
will stay in place all the way. Here we go our left mitten is all done. Now we have to
make a mitten for the right hand too. Remember that now you have to cut out a mirror image
of the first one. And here they are our beautiful knitted mittens ready to decorate our pillow
case. Apply some fabric glue on the back of mittens, hot glue should work fine too, and
stick them on the pillow. Fancy pillow cases can be very expensive, while you can get such
plain cases like this one for a few dollars. I chose red one which makes it a bit more
Christmassy but you can use white or blue one and your pillow case will be perfect for
all winter long. Next step is optional but I happened to have this white faux fur fabric
so I decided to cut two little pieces and stick them on the wrist part of the mittens.
Instead of such fur material you can totally use white knit or cotton fabric.
look even more soft and cozy. To make our pillow even more interesting and full I am
gluing a piece of white yarn, making sure that the ends are attached to the mittens.
This string makes the pillow look so retro. I still remember having such gloves when I
was little. Here it is our mittens pillow case is all done and it looks amazing, right?!
I mean, you can't even get such a cool design in a shop. This is a great decoration for
your bed or a sofa. It just adds a warm and cozy feeling to any space. I absolutely adore
it. Even if you don't have a proper Christmas
tree in your room, you can still make it look super festive for the holidays. These yarn
trees are easy to make and so inexpensive.
All you need is some thicker paper, all purpose
glue, yarn, paint brush and buttons. Make a cone shape using a piece of thicker paper.
Cut away the excess to get a flat bottom edge, so that our tree will stand nice and straight
when finished. Get your yarn and glue ready. Before we start wrapping the yarn around the
cone, we need to attach it in place firmly. So stick the yarn end on the tip of the cone
using a piece of tape. Now we can apply glue on a small section on the top part of the
cone and start wrapping the yarn around like that. Make sure to wrap the yarn rows closely
one by the other, so you can't see the paper below. Add more glue and do some more wrapping.
What I like about this DIY is that all the things you need you most probably already
have around your house.
So you don't have to spend any money for this beautiful Christmas
decoration. Our cone is now completely wrapped and we can cut away the excess working yarn.
I also decided to cut off a few milimetres of paper to make our tree even neater. Time
for the fun part – decorating the Christmas tree! I am going to use these green buttons
in a shape of flowers, because they are the only buttons that I have, but of course any
buttons will do. Apply some glue on the back of each button and stick them on the tree.
There we go – how gorgeous right?! But we're not finished yet.
You guys know my obsession
with pom poms so of course we have to put one on top of our Christmas tree! I show you
how to make a pom pom in my DIY gift Ideas tutorial so check it out if you don't know
how to make it. Our Christmas tree is finished and it looks beautiful. I loved it so much
that I had to make another one, this time using green yarn and white buttons for the
baubles. I finished it off with a red pom pom on top. These little Christmas trees are
so adorable and inexpensive – you really have to try them, guys.
They will look beautiful
