Hey there! My name is KingJamaa, and today I’ll be showcasing six of the den designs I’ve incorporated into my Jamaaliday den (you can come see the full den if you’d like- my username is Cheetah87516 and my den is normally always unlocked) as well as showing how you can make them and some nonmember approaches to the designs! Without further ado, how about we get started?
I’ve created a small little living room for our first room. The fireplace is made out of two fireplaces, and the centerpiece is of two different items. When creating these layered item setups, make sure your items don’t flicker their overlaying point. By this, I mean the moment when an item is placed on top of another item then it overlays under it once it’s stayed there for a while. You might have to put the item slightly to make them overlap, but with some precise placing and some patience it can all work.
For nonmembers who don’t have access to the fireplaces (which are for sale in Epic Wonders and Jam Mart Furniture), you can purchase a standard fireplace from the Diamond Shop and decorate it with holly, poinsettias, or any item you think would look good with the overall look. As for the centerpiece, everything for that (the Jamaaliday Pet Tree and Snowman Centerpiece) are all nonmember and are located in Jam Mart Furniture.
My next decoration features a cozy bedroom and a lively Jamaaliday tree. You can basically use any table, couch, fence, and pillow for the bed, and I added a little plushie for decoration and because a pillow couldn’t overlay on top of the couch. My window design consists of the Candy Cane Window and Wreath Clock, and don’t fret if you get that overlay flicker I mentioned above– just experiment with the placement!
The tree can be made out of any tree item, and there are some neat ones for all Jammers, as well. I decided to add a star to the top with a sea star I found in Sunken Treasures, and placed presents down at the bottom. The potted holly near the bed has a gift lamp underneath it, as well, providing a bit of light to the room.
This design is mostly nonmember, which I like. The only thing for members are the lanterns and shovel, but everything else can either be bought in stores or obtainable from the calendar. I’ve used some symmetry techniques for the window area, and covered the blank space with a tall hedge (which is an alternative to a Jamaaliday tree) and a large holly planter. The gingerbread set can be bought in Outback Imports, and I just used them for the windows and fences.
The fourth idea I had was a nice fountain area that’s made with two fountains (one is member, one isn’t) as well as a gingerbread Mira statue and a tall hedge. I also used the chocolate fountains for decoration. One was placed next to the Mira, and the second was placed under the hedge for a little base since the other fountain hides the trunk of the tree.
I’ve made another fountain design, however this one is larger and more icy than the last. There’s a frozen koi pond and frozen fountain, both of which could be purchased at this year’s Jamaalidays in July weekend sale. I added frosting icicles and frozen ponds to add a more frosty look, and a Snowman Centerpiece to fill up an empty spot.
My final design is a sleigh concept that I liked. It’s made of a gift sleigh, dog sled, and four pet reindeer. I decided to do this instead of a regular sleigh for many reasons, one of which was me not having the Rare Item Monday sleigh and because it would most likely not fit in with the aesthetic of my den. By doing the design I have here, I used up roof space as well as kept the soft color scheme I’ve taken and complimented the rainbow colors of the gumdrops and presents at the tree.
Anyways, that’s pretty much it. I’ll see you all next time! Have a happy and safe Jamaalidays and new year. Play wild!
