Before we start, I have to ask you to forgive me for taking these photos during the Christmas season. Although I love the tree in this room, for most of the year the corner is filled with a pedestal and a very large bride doll.
Sooo…you want a beautiful room for your little princess without breaking the bank to do it, right? Well, I did too, and it took very little to get it there besides the help of a friend.
I started first with a VERY inexpensive lace curtain, just two simple long panels, a short one, and a valance. Because my window had a window seat, I decorated the seat, but, of course, most would not have to do this.
Once the curtains were hung, we simply twirled ribbon up and around until we had the whole thing outlined, pinning the ribbon on the sides and in the middle at the top.
The pink balls that you see over the pins can be purchased in almost any large craft section. They come on individual wires and can easily be tied together into clumps. The tiebacks came with the curtain, and you can see that we put a pink clump on each as well as a pink Christmas ball.
My friend still wasn’t safisfied with our look, and she tied the sequin ball to the lowest portion of the valance.
The rest was just tying the rest of the room together.
We had the beautiful doll photo that you see here, but the wall was too large for just a single picture, large though it be. Sooo….I had two extra curtain panel that we did not need after I decided on the look I wanted for the window.
These we tied together in the middle, leaving enough draping to pretend it was a bow that we tacked over the center of the picture. Then, as you can see, we just draped the curtain and tacked it to the wall on the sides.
The draping over the photo was still a little plainer that we wanted, so we simply added some tulle and a few strings of beads.
The, I gathered every old doll that either of us had and displayed them on the shelves.
The only thing left to do was to simply stick a few small clumps over the photos in the room and we were done!
