Favorite DIY Ideas for College!

Hey guys!

With less than 2 months until moving to (or moving back to) St. Mike's, I'm sure some of you have already started shopping for dorm things. This was one of my favorite parts of getting ready for college...looking for different things to decorate my side of the room with to make it really feel like home :)

Well, I was recently looking at some awesome DIY (do-it-yourself) ideas on Pinterest. For those of you that don't know, Pinterest is basically an online pin board where you post images of your favorite ideas relating to anything from fashion to recipes. Anyways, I was looking at some of the DIY ideas and thought, hey, these would be great to have/use specifically at college! So here are a few of my favorites...

(links to the original how-to sites are linked beneath each photo!)

For the dorm/decor:

Frame key holder 

Personalized pens

DIY chalkboard

Earring display

Dixie cup garland

DIY votives


Dry erase calendar
Label cords with bread bag ties- so smart!
Keep bobby pins in a tic tac container!

Keep weekly goals organized with post-its!

To wear:

Braided headbands from an old t-shirt!

DIY colored jeans

Bow sandal

Cut an old t-shirt into a tie-front tank!

Gift ideas:

It's hard to give gifts in college because most students have a limited budget to work with and not a lot of time to spend shopping. The solution? DIY ideas that your friends/family will love..these are my favorites..

Make a cupcake bouquet with a painted
flower pot, styrofoam, and toothpicks!

Painted glasses

Glitter anything!

  2. Nice share. I think your website should come up much higher the search results than where it is showing up right now….

  3. You always can publish something absorbing that does not waste minutes of your life like what you see on countless other sites. This is very interesting and I will be back for more. Thanks for sharing:-X
