No dorm room is complete without a little bit of personalization and creativity. With these easy DIY tips, you can turn your room into a place that you’ll love spending time in.
Charge Your Devices in Style
Tired of huge power cord tangles and unsightly charging messes? Cut holes in a shoebox for your power strip and charge cords and label them for a convenient, organized charging box. Customize your box for the perfect look!
Organize Your Pens
Organize pens, pencils, and other supplies with the help of a few old cans. Simply clean them out well, cover them in scrapbook paper and adhere them in a stacked formation for a great organizer!
Clear Some Sink Space
If your sink is looking cluttered, how about using removable stick-ons to adhere your toothbrush holder to the wall?
Great Uses for Mason Jars
Most people wouldn’t think of mason jars for dorm room decor projects, but they can be great for storing odds and ends, such as writing utensils.
Stylish and Functional
Use a wooden picture frame to dangle some jars with twine for a really cool storage center for odds and ends!
Keep Your Books Together
Bookends don’t always keep your books in place, but a brick has more than enough weight to do the job. Paint your bricks in the color of your choice and even add fabric trims for a little DIY touch!
Keep Dirty Laundry Off the Floor
Need a dirty laundry solution? All you will need is an embroidery hoop and a pillowcase to keep your clothes off the floor in between laundry days.
Custom Laundry Bag
Use the embroidery hoop and pillowcase to create a laundry bag that is always open. You can hang your new bag on the back of a door for extra convenience.

Buy a large corkboard and cut it into smaller shapes of your choice, then stick them to your wall! For extra fun, add colorful borders that will bring out the personality of your dorm room.
Unleash Your Creativity
Everyone likes drawing on tables, whether we admit it or not. Use some chalkboard paint on an old wooden table so that you can use the surface for all the doodling your heart desires.
Organize Your Earrings
Every dorm room can benefit from a little organization. Keep your earrings together by painting a cheese grater in a fun color and hanging them in pairs in the holes.
