Moving into a dorm room can be scary but is a great opportunity. It’s an entirely new room that you have a chance to decorate…obviously with some limits of course. Regardless, there are a lot of DIYs out there to make your room uniquely you and give it an extra touch instead of the boring setup that they give you. Honestly, most of these DIYs can even be done before you move in so you won’t have to worry about getting the supplies when you get there. Here are 10 Dorm Room DIYs To Make Your Room Feel Homey.
1. “Floating” Shelf
This is a relatively cheap DIY and you might even have some of the materials already. You’ll need a magazine file, chalkboard sticker paper and some paints of your choosing. Cover your file with the chalkboard paper and then put chalkboard paper on the idea, painting the inside of it is optional. Once it’s dry, you can paint the edges and after they dry, hang it up on your wall using removable wall hangers. This would be great to keep pictures like above or even using it as storage for charging cords by your bed.
2. Customized Full-Length Mirror
A full-length mirror is a must for college and decorating it is a great way to make it really pop. You will need the full-length mirror, paint, fake flowers and a hot glue gun. Paint the edge of the mirror and after it dries, glue on the flowers and you’re done. This is another simple DIY that takes something really plain to the next level.
3. DIY Floral Letter Decoration
This floral letter decoration can bring a lot of color to a dull dorm room. For this DIY, you will need some fake flowers, a glue gun and a large letter from a craft store or one that you cut out of cardboard. Hot glue the flowers to the letter, arranging them however you’d like and you’re done. This DIY is so simple but will add a girly touch to your room.
