When I lived in Manhattan I had a sweet little studio apartment, which I loved. It was especially wonderful at Christmas time when the house would be decorated and the little tree was right there by my bed. Now that I am in my new, adorable little cottage (from matchbox to shoebox I call it), I miss falling asleep with the twinkling lights bouncing off the ornaments. So last weekend while watching some Christmas movies I decided to decorate the bedroom.
I keep myself on a strict “one new decoration for the house a year” rule and I’d already made my selection for this year with a stunning porcelain reindeer head. I realized this was something I needed to do for free, so I pulled out my scissors and some printer paper and started cutting!

If you use 8 by 10 paper you will have to cut off the bottom to make it square, so I used those pieces to make the daisy chains; a great way to waste less! To make a daisy chain simple roll the paper and tape or staple. Then thread the next piece through the exciting one tape and repeat. To hang the snowflakes I used fishing line, it’s made not to tangle so that is very helpful!
The lovely snowflake lights I hung on the bed are solar powered! Purchased at target and glow a stunning blue. I bought them for outside but think they really dazzle on the bed.
I must say, I had so much fun, and simply love falling asleep in my winter wonderland bedroom. Wouldn’t this would be a fun craft project to do with kids? A way to enjoy time with your children or your nephews and nieces this holiday season. How much would they love a room full of snowflakes! Well I say, it’s simply magical!!
