4 ways to spruce up your dorm room

Hello wonderful people,

Your college dorm is where you live nine months out of the year, so it’s important to decorate it and make it feel and look more home-y. Unfortunately, with limited space and limited funds, it can be hard to create your perfect dorm, so here are a few, inexpensive ways to spruce your dorm!

Side Note: This can also be for apartments, too! 🙂

1. Colorful rug. Rugs are a great way to make a dorm cozier by offering something softer to walk on than tile floors. I found this cute and understated rug at Walmart for only $13.99!

2. Christmas lights. Christmas lights are the perfect way to add a different aspect to your room. My friend Ashley found these cheap Christmas lights and some Dixie Cups and created her own lights to decorate her dorm! She said it was really easy and really cheap and I think they are so cute!

These plain Christmas lights are at Walmart for only $7.99!

3. Crafts. If you are more artsy, you can make awesome crafts to decorate your room!

 This is another cute craft that is really easy to do! Ashley has these in her dorm and all she did was get some twine and bouquet of fake flowers and hot glue them together! I think it is just so cute and so girly!

These pictures are hanging from the Birds on a Wire Photo clip set from Urban Outfitters. A set of 8 costs around $10!
