Every Alpha Sigma Alpha wants to make their dorm room feel like home. Take your room to the next level with these three easy crafts that will make everyone have dorm envy!
1. Picture Clothesline
A large blank wall usually works best for this decoration. Start by hanging two 3M command hooks about three feet away from each other. Tie string from one hook to the other and double knot the ends to make sure it’s secure. Next, hang your pictures! Buy small clothespins (10-12 clothespins is enough) to help keep the pictures in place. Keep in mind that horizontal pictures might need more than one clothespin to keep them straight.
Who says curtains can only hang on windows? Take two 3M command hooks and stick them to your wall. Find fabric, or even a bed sheet, that matches your room and create a hole through the top of the sheet. Next, buy an adjustable shower rod. Take the fabric and put it over the shower rod and place it in the hooks. Finally, sweep the curtain to the side with some ribbon! This craft has been such a hit and the compliments keep coming!
3. Monogram your initials!
This is perfect for a small space and is really easy to make. Buy papier-mâché style letters from Joann’s Fabrics and pick three fun fabrics to create your monogram. Cut your fabric in rectangles that are about 1.5 inches wider than the actual letter. Hot glue the sides down and cut out any tiny centers or gaps. Measure the side width and hot glue ribbon to any sides of the letters to finish the look. Hang the letters with 3M Velcro command hooks. You can also add stuffing inside the fabric to add dimension to your letters. These letters will add personality to your room!
