DIY Holiday Room Decor {A Girly Twist}


Happy Holidays everyone!  Today I thought that I would share with you how I decorated my room for the Holiday season, plus how to make some really cute DIYs I put together.  If you couldn't tell already, my style is SUPER girly so I put my own little twist on the classic holiday decor. I decided to take the pink, gold, shabby chic, girly route with all of these decorations!  Also, is a video I made corresponding with this post for you to watch! I am in love with how my room turned out and I hope you love it too!

Girly Table top Christmas Trees 


Materials
~Cones
~Ribbon
~Hot glue

Optional 
~Fake pearls
~Tulle
~Glitter 
~Buttons


For the first tree I took different colors of ribbon and started glueing one right under the other, wrapping them around the tree in a "drooping pattern".  This way, the ribbon appeared to look like ruffles on the tree.


For the second tree I took thick ribbon, all of the same color and glued it flat onto the cone.  I proceeded to cover the cone in the ribbon so that the tree turned out pink. 


To finish off the Ruffle tree I made a bow out of tulle and glued it to the top.


For the pink tree I made 2 bows out of white ribbon and glued one to the top of the tree and one to the bottom corner.  Then I connected the bows by wrapping (and glueing) a string of fake pearls around the tree.



Here's how the ruffle tree turned out!  I really like all the pastel ribbon colors that I chose.  I placed it on my dresser along with a silver christmas tree to get a really pretty visual contrast.  Also on the dresser I added a cute cream and gold heart box, along with a handmade bowl filled with gold, cream, and pink mini ordainments!  For the finishing touch I added this mason jar snow scene that I will show you how to make!



Now the Pink Tree!  I really love the fake pearls wrapped around the tree, it gives it a girly and formal feel.  I placed the tree on my side table and placed lavender colored ascents around it, such as my Be Enchanted body butter from Bath & Bodywork and a hand made purple mug to add a cozy winter  feeling.  I also added a mini Merry Cookie candle to incorporate some holiday sprit to the side table, along with a mason jar filled with sparkling gold mini ornaments.  

Mason Jar Snow Scene 


Materials 
~Mason Jar 
~Figurine 
~Glitter
~Hot glue

Optional
~Ribbon 
~Fake Pearls


First I hot glued my Jaguar to my mason jar lid (on the inside).  Then I took the glitter and spread it on the inside of the mason jar to look like snow.  I screwed the lid on, flipped over the mason jar, and then decorated the lid with fake pearls and a ribbon bow to give it a girly touch. 



I really like how the snow scene turned out!  It very different then your typical holiday snow globe, less messy because there was no water involved and more delicate because of the light shimmer the glitter (snow) gives it.  I also really love the gold and cream color scheme the snow scene portrays!

Ornament Garland


Materials
~Mini or regular sized ornaments 
~Ribbon


For this Ornament garland all I did was string my ornaments onto this pretty pink ribbon and tied each one in palace.  When I finished, I tied a bow at each end of the ribbon.


I hung my pink and gold garland on my wall with some lights, tinsel and my purple and silver garland on my headboard.  I really love how this project is so personalized and easy to make, also it turned out more beautiful then any store bought garland I have ever seen.



Christmas Card Display 


Materials
~Frame 
~Ribbon
~Elmer's Glue
~Decorative clothes pins
~Decorative Paper

Optional
~Glitter


For the Christmas Card Display I first glued two pieces of Ribbon across the frame to hang the Christmas Cards.  Then I cut to size the paper that I was going to use as the background for the display.




I put the paper in the frame, removed the glass, and taped the back on.  Then, to decorate the clothes pins I dipped them in glue and then silver glitter.







I love how the Card display is so festive and Winter Themed!  I hung it above my shelf where I displayed all of my winter Bath & Body Works Products along with this WINTER SHADOWBOX that I made last year, CLICK TO READ that post!  Also under the shelf I placed this "Tis the Season" Snowflake Wallflower from Bath & Body Works to make my room smell amazing!  I think this little corner of my room is so pretty with all the winter themed items! 

I hope you enjoyed this post, tell me which DIY/ Decoration idea is your favorite! Happy Decorating!
