Welcome back to my channel and my bedroom. I thought it would be fun for me to do a video on if you have maybe like a plain room how like, you can add just tiny little things to, I guess, add some personality to it. Make it fun. Make it pop. Everything in this video takes, like, less than an hour. Everything in this video takes less than an hour to make. And hopefully, you guys like these kind of videos and if you do, then hit the like button, so that I know that you guys like these kind of videos. And I will do more like easy decor videos in the future. Okay so I’m gonna show you guys the things I made starting with the first thing. So the first thing you need is an old jar of some sort. I’m using this old cookie butter jar cuz it’s definitely empty.I made sure of that. But you can use like an old jam jar, mason jar, as long as it is a jar. If the label is giving you problems, which I’m sure it will, just take some nail polish remover. And go overall like the remaining sticky paper residue left over. And it’ll just come right off. So now your jar is clean. And, you wanna take another cup. And in that cup, you wanna pour in like an inch or so of just regular table salt. Then afterwards, you wanna grab a piece of colored chalk. Whatever color you want to. I chose blue. And then you wanna go ahead and stir the salt around with your colored chalk stick. And you can see, it’s magically turning the salt into a blue hue. This is not edible anymore by the way. Stir it for maybe, 15 seconds. I mean, the longer you stir, the stronger the color will get. Now, pour the magic salt into your jar of choice. Now continue this process with all of the colors. The next one I’m gonna use is pink. I’m gonna stir my pink chalk around, turn the salt pink, pour it in the jar.The next one I’m gonna use is green. Same thing. Pour it in the jar and you just keep layering them on top of each other until you have this rainbow salt. Deal, dealio. Can you even believe how cute it is? I can’t. Now afterwards, go ahead and like shove your makeup brushes in there. Shove your pencils in there, shove something in it. Then, place it on your shelf somewhere where everyone can see it.It’s so cute. All right, so that’s done. Now, the next thing I’m gonna show you guys how to make is really easy. You need like a pillar candle of some sort. I’m gonna use a tall one and a short one. And then afterwards, take some masking tape and create a
design. I’m just gonna go ahead and wrap my masking tape, like around the center. A little bit more towards the bottom though, so not directly in the center, I guess. I don’t know, is that in the center? Anyway, on the bottom portion of the candle only, I’m going to spread around some glue. I used my fingers.I don’t know why I did that. And then I’m gonna go ahead and dump on some gold glitter because I just chose gold, but you can use any color you want to. Maybe if it coordinates with your room, you can use like a different color. Once it is completely covered, make sure it’s completely covered, you can go ahead and remove your tape. And then you’ll see that it kinda created like this cute little half glitter look. And if you’re worried about like the glitter fallout getting everywhere and creating a mess, which happens all the time, just take some hairspray. And with the hairspray, just spray it on the glitter portion and that will stop a lot of the fallout from getting like all over your bedroom. And that one is done. Now for the second one, I’m going to actually take a piece of paper. I’m going to fold it in half, and on the half, I’m gonna draw, you know, half of a heart. This way it’s perfectly symmetrical. Make sure it lines up with your candle, like it’s not too big or anything like that.Afterwards cut it out and then tape that onto your candle. And once you have it taped on with your masking tape then go ahead and sponge on some glitter where the heart opening is. Be very careful to stay on like inside of the, the heart, not get it anywhere else. And then afterwards, I’m gonna dump some glitter on it. Once it is completely covered in glitter, I’m going to remove the piece of paper and I’m gonna kinda take another sponge and just clean up the edges of the heart and this should be like really, really easy to do since it’s still wet. And this is what it looks like when it’s all done. And now you have this pair, of little, cute, glitter decorative hearts that you can place on your shelves, or use as like book stoppers. If you have books on your shelf or on your dresser, or anything like that.And it’s cute. And cheap. Okay, so for the next thing you want just plain white pillow cases. Boring ones. Mine are just kind of old. I’d have nothing really to do with them. I don’t really use them, so I decided to make something out of them. So, I’m gonna get two pieces of paper stacked on top of
each other. Then I’m gonna draw half of a heart. I like hearts, obviously. So, I’m drawing half of a heart on top of a piece of paper, then I’m gonna cut out the heart, take out the bottom piece of paper, and flip it over. And this will give me a perfectly shaped cut out heart that is big enough for a pillow. And I’m gonna tape the pieces directly onto the center of my plain white pillow. Make sure it’s in the center cuz you don’t want it like too far off to one side. It’ll just look little weird. Then I’m gonna take some fabric paint. These are really, really cheap, and I chose blue because my room has a lot of blue in it.I’m gonna mix a couple colors to get the perfect shade of blue. Then I’m going to go ahead and mix it around. I’m using a makeup sponge, but you can use whatever you want, a paint brush. I just chose to use a sponge because I just wanted that look for this. And then afterwards, I’m going to gently start sponging onto my cut out heart. Now, don’t go too rough around the edges because if you go too rough, you can get it underneath the paper and then it will ruin your design. So just try to be careful. Now, after I have covered the top half, I’m going to actually ombre the heart into a lighter color.So I’m gonna mix a little bit more white in with my paint and just kind of blend that onto the top color of blue. And add a little bit more white onto the bottom portion. So it’s gonna be like three different colors kind of all blended together. And you can do like completely different strokes. You can use like a different brush. I chose to kind of use the stamping technique to keep it kind of messy, handmade, rustic looking. But it’s up to you how you wanna do it. Then remove your paper. And you have this really cute, handmade, ombre heart pillow case. And then let it dry like overnight before you place it on your pillow cause it probably bled through a little bit. And then it’ll just give your bed like some personality if you just have plain pillows and don’t really wanna spend the money for a whole new bed set. Try it with stars, maybe. Try it with your initials. Just something cute to spice up your bed. And then the last thing I’m gonna make is this really cute like nightlight lamp thing that I am, like in love with right now.So just take like an old jar or vase. I’m using this old vase from when I got flowers when I was really sick one time. Get your masking tape back out. And
on the masking tape, you wanna go ahead and draw some stars. And, I’m not, this, I’m not good at it. I’m really not good at drawing stars, I realize. But they don’t have to be perfect. So, do as many as you want to, then afterwards you, want to take your scissors and you wanna cut out the stars. Then, one by one, go ahead and gently place them all over your vase, or jar. And you can put them wherever you want to. You can put them close together, far apart, you don’t even have to do stars. You could do circles, hearts, whatever you want to. And then once you have them all placed in your ideal locations, you want to go ahead and spray paint around the stickers that you just placed, so make sure that they’re all the way on.And I’m using this gold, really, really shiny, pretty gold spray paint. I’m spraying it on the outside of the vase, not on the inside. Because I don’t know what that will do scientifically if a flame hits it and there’s gonna be a candle inside, so I’m gonna go ahead and spray it on the outside instead. And you might need more than one coat of spray paint, depending on, I actually ended up needing more than one. I found out the next day, but it’s good enough. So let it dry for, you know, a few hours. Then afterwards go ahead and peel off your star stickers. Then you’ll have these cute little oh, it’s a cute little design. And this is what it looks like when it’s all done. You have these little clear stars that will allow some light to peek through in the darkness. So I’m gonna put a candle in actually, and turn off my lights and show you what it does. You can use an electric candle as well, but I’m gonna use a regular one cuz I have a lot of them. And so this is kinda what it looks like when it’s dark, and you can see that the light peeking through will create little cute stars actually like on your wall or on your shelf.And I am just really happy about that man.
