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 |
|Dixie cup garland|
|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!|
|Braided headbands from an old t-shirt!|
|DIY colored jeans|
|Cut an old t-shirt into a tie-front tank!|
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!
