Quick Way to Add Color to Sofia’s Room

Apr 18, 2014 | Girls Room, On the Cheap, Projects

Sofia needed a little more color on one side of her room, so I made her a quick colorful pennant to hang on the top of her mirror. It was super easy to do and also pretty cheap. I just got some glitter color card stock from Michael’s, a spool of thin ribbon, and my stapler. I cut the card stock into uniform triangles, folded over the top edge of the triangle to cover the ribbon that I used to hang all the triangles, then I stapled the triangles into place. You can’t even see the staples so I wasn’t going to take the time to bust out the glue gun for this project.

Pennants 2In hindsight though, because I hung the pennant on Sofia’s mirror and you can see the reflection of the back of the triangles, I would have made the pennant double sided so that there’s color on both sides… Not going to change it now though 🙂 .


I also broke out the spray paint and painted her out owl lamp to give her a little more color on the right side of her bed. I painted the walls in her room a very neutral color so that I could infuse a lot of color with accessories.
