When you first walked into your dorm room on move-in day, perhaps the bare white walls, empty beds, and unnatural echoes made it appear boring, lifeless, or even unwelcoming. But little by little when you unpacked, it looked and felt more like home. Why stop there? Pinterest has so many great do-it-yourself crafts that you can try right in your dorm room and on a college student’s budget!
Melted Crayon Art- Who says you can’t use crayons in college? I’ve seen a wide variety of this crayon art on Pinterest lately. Not only is it pretty, but it looked like a lot of fun to make; the allure of melting something convinced me to try it! Just glue the crayons onto a small poster and use a hairdryer to melt the crayons. But beware: the melted wax will explode outward at times! I made my creation with a 24-pack, and found that I didn’t have quite enough crayons to cover the page, so I would possibly suggest two 24-packs.
Have you found any ideas for your dorm room from Pinterest? How else have you decorated your room?
