    Cheap Way to Decorate Little Girls Room

    My three girls (1,4, and 5 1/2) are about to sharing a room (master bedroom in an apartment). They have bunk beds and a custom wood toddler bed. Both of which I can paint. I cannot paint the walls. I am looking for a way to make it bright and fun. Curtians HAVE to have a white back. I have seen some of those bright colored round chinese laterns that I can hang with pretty ribbon at different lengths. What other ideas? I am a single mom with not alot to spare but I want them to have a room they are proud of. TIA

    Take a trip to your local Dollar Store. Kids LOVE dollar stores and they are CHEAP. If you have a creative eye you can really score some GREAT decor on the dollar.

    Things to look for:

    Wall cut outs/boards like the kind they have at daycare/preschool/school. Go with a theme. They can be hung with putty that will not harm the walls.

    Spring/summer garden supplies and fake flowers... Let your girls pick out strands of fake flowers to make their own special bouquet and stick them in a seasonal planter box/basket or non breakable vase. They will feel special knowing they made their own pretty flower basket or vase! Another cute idea for planter boxes is poking pinwheels in them and placing in the windowsill, very cute. They sell that foam stuff to stick them in at the dollar tree.

    Who doesn't love a LUAU??? DId you know those adorable flower leis sold in multi packs can be grouped together in long strands and hung like beaded curtains? How perfect this would be for that bunk bed!!! They also work well in the doorway, window or even hung from the wall.

    Glow in the dark wall stars and stick ons. Kids love the way this looks at night... Put them on the ceiling and sides of the walls.


    Party supply section - check it out, you never know what kind of little princess stuff you will find.

    Don't forget a space to display their art. Kids want this, love this and need this. They take pride in their art... a cork board is great. Some have ribbon to hold pictures, those are safe and no sharp objects.

    Some of the best chefs cook from DIY cardboard kitchens... got plain cardboard boxes around? decorte them to look like stoves... microwaves... fridge... etc and let the little chefs use their big imaginations

    Baskets - kids love baskets for their toys... princess supplies/dress up... belongings...

    THE SNUGGLE BOOK CORNER... floor pillows and a small bookcase if they have one - create a sacred space you all can cuddle with floor pillows and a few stuffed toys

    Some of the growing ones really dig growth charts - can be put on the back of the bedroom door

    Hanging monkeys... blow up beach balls... there is fun to be had!

    Do you have a theme in mind?  If you are going with a character or animals you could buy a calendar with the theme and tear the pictures out to put on the walls or glue them on to storage containers.  Since the year is half over you should be able to get one very cheap.  Many people sell vinyl decals on ebay that don't harm your walls in a variety of patterns.  I have bought some for $1 before and they took the paint off my walls.  I may have just had bad luck.  I was able to get one with my daughter's name.
