There’s no place like home for the holidays, as we all know. And who better to hum that tune than a college student home to visit Mom and Dad in between semesters? Well, if you are the homeward bound daughter of Kelly from Talk of the House, then being home for the holidays means than not only are the halls decked with holly, but your bedroom is, too!
It’s become a tradition for Kelly to add festive touches to her daughter’s bedroom each Christmas, and I just love the snowflake theme she used for this year. White snowflakes on red pillows cozy up the beds, and the evergreen garland over the windows twinkle with lights. The simple but effective decorating she has done looks great in this bedroom, but I think it wouldwork well in other parts of the home, too.
Would you like to get a similar look in your home? Well, just in case you would, I’ve found five tutorials from the blogosphere to help you create a similar look, DIY style.
1. Handmade Evergreen Garland
2. Mercury Glass Lamp
I just saw one of these at Tatertots & Jello! Jen made this one with an old lamp and Krylon’s Looking Glass Spray Paint. Check out her tutorial. And then go see thefaux mercury glass decor I made, recently.
3. Buffalo Check Curtains
The trick to getting these buffalo check curtains for less is to find tablecloths in the color you want. A Cultivated Nest tells all about the easy no-sew transformation from tablecloth to drapery.
4. Festive Pillows
The snowflake and buffalo check pillows on the beds really add to the festive feel of this room. Well, speaking of tablecloths, check out these fun red and white snowflake pillows I found at A House in Holland that also came from a tablecloth!
5. Build Your Own Bunkbeds
The Stucco Bungalow built this adorable bunk set for their girls. With free or low-cost project plans available, there are lots of choices for the eager do-it-yourselfers .
I think this room has some great touches that can last the whole year round, but I love the addition of seasonal decor, too. I’m curious: do you decorate bedrooms for Christmas at your house?
