15 Cute DIY Crafts For Your Bedroom On A Budget

Crafting and decor no longer have to break the bank.

15 Cute DIY Crafts For Your Bedroom On A Budget
J. Goode

College budgets are impossible to deal with, especially when it comes to decoration. We want the cutest room, for the lowest price, but often that seems nothing less than impossible. However, we have made the impossible quite possible with these dollar store steals to not only create the cutest room on or off campus, but a fun time crafting them!

1. Secure small drawer handles onto a picture frame for a cute bed tray.

2. Use thumbtacks to create bedroom art or spice up a bland candle ... a blandle.

3. Secure round handles on a wooden cutlery tray to create a jewelry organizer.

4. Fill a spice rack with office supplies.

5. Melt crayons to create color-block candles.

6. Use silverware and a wooden board to create interesting hooks. (Be careful when heating silverware and wait before gluing to avoid injury.)

7. Spray paint and/or glitter a cheap vase to make it cute and unique for your bedside table.

8. Use inexpensive placemats to create interesting throw pillows.

9. Spray paint a dollar store trashcan into a night stand.

10. Spray paint wooden skewers to make a starburst mirror.

11. Watercolor votive candle holders.

12. Use wooden skewers and manila folders to create a Japanese-inspired lantern.

13. Use inexpensive beads and a metal basket frame to create a beaded chandelier

14. Make a desert tray with candle sticks and plastic plates glued together and spray painted.

15. Paint age onto a rubber door mat to create a piece of wall art.

Hopefully all, or at least some, of these crafts make your room a true home and you have fun doing it! Grab a friend and get crafting on a dollar!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
