Redecorate Your Bedroom
Looking to give yourself and your space a new look this winter? Why don't you turn your bedroom into an inspired space that you can mix and match with a million different combinations?
Dress Up Your Monitor
Unless you're a member of the Simpson family, you don't wear just one outfit so, why should your computer or TV? This quick project really lets you flex your creative muscles.
You need: A roll of peel-and-stick Velcro, different colors of felt, scissors, a measuring tape and glue.
Do it: Measure your TV or Computer screen. Then cut out a felt border that will fit around the outside edge without blocking the screen. Use your own imagination to cut out different shapes and patterns. Glue the felt cutouts to the border and decorate it any other way you want. You can make lots of different ones to suit your moods. Now stick one side of the Velcro to the TV or computer monitor (better ask your 'rents first.) Stick the other side to the pretty frame you made. Be careful to use the opposite sides of the Velcro strips cuz two pieces of the same side won't stick together. Now you can change the frames whenever you feel like it.
On the Wall Variation
You don't have to limit this crafty idea to your TV. Glue pics of your friends on to felt frames that you've decorated and stick them to your wall with Velcro so you can move them around to give your room a fresh look. Or, if you're really artistically inclined, you can paint a fishpond on your wall and stick cutouts of different fish, plants and frogs to the pond.
Sleep Under the Stars
So your 'rents aren't keen on you painting your ceiling? No prob. Buy plastic glow-in-the-dark stars and stick them to your ceiling with poster putty. If you've got some serious time on your hands, you can find a map of the stars on the Web and copy the constellations. You can switch the stars around whenever you want - poster putty stays soft so it won't wreck your ceiling!
