I thought today I would go along with the fall theme I have started and share with you my fall decoration. Most of this decor I got from the dollar store because this girl is on a budget. I would have to say that fall and Christmas are my favourite times to decorate my room and you can tell because 3/4 of my decorations are for fall and Christmas. I hope you enjoy these things and try them out for yourself. And don’t forget to tag us if you try them and/or use the hashtag #basicbloggerss….

Hello people of the internet! Since it is almost time for school again (mixed feelings for me), and some of you may even be in school already, I decided to do a simple yet cute and easy DIY to help decorate your lockers. If you’re not in school, these also look cute hanging on your wall. Here are 2 ideas to spice up your school year: a chalkboard and a cork-board.
First you will need…
I know that I am a few days late but I was just having such a relaxing time on vacation but here I am now! So in the spring time I always find it soooo much fun to decorate my room even more than the other seasons. Is that wierd? Anyways I have really needed a pencil holder in my room and I am to cheap to go out and buy one so I decided that it would be fun to make one! It was really spur of the moment but all the supplies were easy to get.
One makeup sponge. I actually used a sponge because I couldn’t find a paint brush. It had a really cool affect but you could just use a paint brush if you don’t have a makeup sponge around.
Paint. You can’t paint anything if you dont have paint. I used white to go with the theme of my room but you can use whatever colour you want.
A Jar. This is what I used for my pencil holder but you can use whatever you want. Another idea if you can’t find a jar around you can use an old can and take the lable off to paint it. I also painted on the outside of the jar and it gave it a matte look. If you are wanting something more shiny you could paint the inside. Painting the inside is a bit harder but it lookes really nise and polished.
Newspaper. In my picture I used plastic wrap because I don’t get the newspaper. This is just to make sure that your work surface doesn’t get paint on it.
Glitter. This is totally optional but I thought that it would be fun to add a bit of sparkle. The glitter that I used also gave it a fun bumpy look that I thought was cool.
Ribbon. This is also optional but I thought that my jar just needed something to complete it and that is just what I did.
I hope you like this diy. If you try it out share it with use on facebook or instagram. Till next time, adios!
