DIY Room Decor • Collab with LiveandLaugh03!

Hi and welcome to Little Miss Holly, for this blog post I’m doing a collab with LiveandLaugh03!! I’m super excited because this is the first ever collab on Little Miss Holly. We decided to both do some tumblr inspired room decor, that is also easy and cheap. I’ll leave all her links at the end. So let’s get started, enjoy 🙂

•Mason Jar with animal topper•

To start with I will be showing you how to make a super cute room DIY which is basically a Mason Jar with the lid painted and a painted plastic animal glued on top. This is great for the bathroom to put ear buds in, the kitchen for lollies and chocolate (or your room!) and maybe in your room for makeup bits and pieces.

What you need

• Mason Jar (Bought mine from Kmart)

• plastic animal (bought mine from Kmart in a tube with lots of other animals to choose from)

• Water based acrylic paint (I believe I bought this from Bunnings)

• Super glue

Take the lid off the Mason Jar and paint it whatever colour you like. Grab your plastic animal and paint it as well. I used Handycan Water Based Acrylic Paint, and found it stuck really well and looked amazing. I did two coats.

Once completely dry, glue the animal to the lid and allow it to dry.

Put whatever you want in the jar, I find lollies and chocolates look really pretty.

TIP: before glueing on the animal, screw the lid on and place it on the lid where you want it to go.

•Animal Ring Dish•

This one is my favourite. This is such a pretty DIY to add to your room, plus it’s really handy. You can put spare change, rings, earrings, brackets plus so much more on this easy room decor. This is just a small plate or soap dish with plastic animals which are painted, then glued on. I chose the giraffe and elephant to put on this one because you can hang your rings on the neck/trunk.

What you need

• Small plate or soap dish, I used the Homemaker Soap Dish with Bamboo Base from Kmart, it’s perfect size and is nicer than a normal plate.

• Plastic toy animals

• Acrylic Paint (mine was from a cheap shop)

• Super glue

Paint the animals whatever colour, I chose white to match the dish. Unfortunately I had to do 4 coats plus many touch ups because it was a cheap paint. Once dry, glue them to the plate and let dry.

•Eucalyptus Leaf Design•

This is a really cheap DIY and one I don’t think many people would think about. This is a great one for all ages and skill levels. You can do something basic, like me, or something really artistic on it. It’s basically a dried eucalyptus leaf which has been painted.

What you need

• Dried eucalyptus leaf, try have one that’s not very crinkly or curly

• Paint

Well this ones easy to explain, get your leaf and paint a design on it. Done!

This was a collab with LiveandLaugh03, it would be great if you could go over to her blog and check out her side of our collab. Let her know you came from my side by leaving a comment!


I hope you enjoyed this post, if you have any questions or requests feel free to leave them in the comments.

Love, Holly
