Who doesn’t love a makeover video? Just think of the movies, where the dorky girl (who is always pretty the whole time) gets a music video makeover into a bombshell, a la Katy Perry in TGIF, Brittany Murphy in Clueless, and Sandy in Grease. Well, here is a fun tween makeover video where we used WallPops to totally revamp a 12 year old girls room from cluttered cute to positively posh! We kept the entire project under $100 dollars with some DIY magic!
WallPops are perfect for room makeovers! Not only do WallPops come in the most on-trend designs imaginable, they make a sassy statement for a very nice price, and they are super easy to use and then remove to make way for changing tastes!
We used the Go Wild zebra print blox to create a dramatic feature wall. Animal print has an adventurous and chic appeal that just never seems to go out of style! To compliment this impressive wall art, we painted her current bureau black and added some modern pulls. Changing her furniture from princess white with antique drawer handles to sleek black with contemporary hardware helped to transition the room from sweet little girl to stylish young woman. The black paint ($8.97 for a pint) and 8 new drawer handles (only $1.38 each!) were a low budget way to make a dazzling transformation. The finishing touch was an Icicles Chandelier for $30.99. This shimmering chandelier was the bling cherry on our delicious make over. Cascading tiers of silver hanging from the ceiling gives a glamorous, finished look to the room.
Who doesn’t love to be festive?! After all, the holidays are the mecca of festivities, giving the warm lively spirit to the word itself. One of the most fabulous and sure ways to make merry is decorating. Being surrounded by fun seasonal colors, shiny glitz, treasured holiday items and magical embellishments lifts spirits! Bedecking your home for the celebration of the season is a joyous journey, one on which we embark each year with renewed delight. The holidays also present a special opportunity for DIY glee! Sure you can buy a box of cookies, but isn’t it more fun to make them yourself? This time of year, we all have an extra twinkle of inspiration! Here are a few visuals of holiday ideas we tried this year!
In this photo, we traced and cut out an iconic Menorah shape that you “light” each day with peel and stick flames. It is a DIY advent Menorah! Fantastic and symbolic for kids, they will love to add a flame each night. We used the WallPops Ice Blox to give our Menorah a shimmer shine!
Here is a quick video of a WallPops craft idea that creates a beautiful space to display your holiday cards! One of our favorite things about the season is opening the mailbox to find greetings of the season from family and friends. However, where to put the jubilee of pictures and cards?! Here is a brilliant and jolly space saver that showcases your holiday hellos with splendor!
WallPops are perhaps the most versatile decorating innovation ever! There are designs perfect for everybody, and they are designed to be arranged to fit any space with unlimited possibilities. But did you know that they are also perfect for DIY projects? WallPops can be cut to absolutely any shape, and the multitude of colors can be used together to create stunning and functional décor themes. For a refresher check out the Autumn leaves inspiration. For the holidays, just let your imagination run wild! Think of peel and stick ornaments on your walls, candy cane striping, red or blue dry-erase for holiday wish lists (and cut out a peel & stick white bow to accent everything!! Bows are trending right now!) Just pick a celebratory color or shape and stick it anywhere and everywhere. Pop your world holiday-chic!
What are you thankful for? It feels good to take a moment to acknowledge all of the wonderful things we have in our lives! In theory Thanksgiving should be a time of reflection, on the rich history of our country, and on all of the spectacular people, pets, experiences, and memories we hold dear. Of course, all too often, Thanksgiving sneaks up on us with the whirlwind of our busy lives and amongst the winter holidays that seem to start earlier and earlier each year. WallPops Dry-Erase Message Boards make sharing your appreciations easy. Leave a note on the wall and make someone’s day. A message board can truly make a community space where keeping in touch is stylish and fun. Enjoy this short video to get a glimpse into how one family uses their Bali dry-erase message board at home!
When seasons change, we feel more than just a change in the weather. There is an awareness and an excitement that comes with each season. Fall is a beautiful time of year, the time of harvest and the time for nature to put on a brilliant show of color. Celebrate the Fall and all of her bountiful hues by giving your decor an Autumn make-over. This fun project is a wonderful way to bring those colors into your home.
1. Gather leaves in different shapes and sizes.
2. Trace them on the back of WallPops Blox in autumn colors like Lello Yello, Blackberry, Red Hot and Totally Orange.
3. Cut out the leaf shapes, and include the stem.
4. After you have your leaf shape cut out, peel it off of the backing and stick it to the wall.
Add as many or as few leaves as you wish, in as many colors as you would like for the desired effect. This decor idea looks great from early September all of the way through Thanksgiving.
Enjoy this video for a quick demonstration on how to get this look at home.
