Cheap Decorating Ideas for a Girl's Room

Updated on November 4, 2011

When it comes to decorating a girl’s room, it is important to make them feel like the little princess that they are. There are several cheap decorating ideas for a girl’s bedroom that will continue to fill her with happiness for years to come. . Whether your princess was just born, or has grown to school age, decorations can easily be made to express her style.

Decorating with flowers is a timeless tradition that any girl is sure to love. First, collect several beautiful flowers to display in her room. Allow these flowers to dry out. The key is to keep them in tact, so string the stems and hang them upside down in front of a window. This will allow the sun to dry the flowers out while keeping their beautiful appearance. Once the flowers have dried, which usually takes around two to three days, carefully remove the flowers and spray them with hair spray. Make sure you fully soak the flower. The hair spray will dry and create a solid flower structure that is better able to keep its beautiful appearance. Lay the flowers out on a flat surface I a fan-like design, overlapping the stems. Take some thick ribbon and wrap it around the stems, tying it in a bow. These flowers are now ready to be hung on the wall for display in your girl’s room. If you prefer, dry the flowers and preserve them with the hair spray, and place them in a decorative vase to display on a table or desk.

Clocks are another timeless items that never go out of style, and it is always convenient to display a fabulous clock in a room. You can create your own clock design easily, and personalize it for your little girl’s room. The first thing you will need to do is select a clock. A cheap circular clock is the perfect choice, and can be easily taken apart and reassembled for designing. Take the clock back off, and slowly remove the small parts until you are able to remove the paper inside of the clock that displays the time. You can paint this however you prefer with some crafting paint and a fine paintbrush, or you can choose to print a design from the computer. Simply select the picture that you would like and size it down to fit. Details such as the girl’s name and numbers for time can be added with a text tool. Once you have created the ideal design, simply print it, cut it out, and use spray on adhesive to attach it to the clock back. Reassemble the clock, and you are ready to go.

Creating a picture wall is a very simple project that will allow a girl to admire pictures of good times she has had with friends and family, or change the pictures to display new ones. To complete this, select a paint color that is different than the wall color in the room. Design an area on the wall, outline, and paint the area. Add a thin white wall trim to frame the area, and place around twenty to thirty tacks. If you have any special pictures you would like to hang, go ahead and hang them. This can also be done by lining the area with a nice fabric or decorative wallpaper, which add more texture and decoration to the area.
