Get your creativity on even if the space you call your room isn’t technically yours. These DIY room decor ideas are my secrets to crafting and decorating when renting.
1. DIY Fun Cork Board
Hang your favorite photos and reminders on this fun and quirky cork board. Simply cut out a pineapple shape from your cork board, and draw different sizes of triangles. Then, grab a paintbrush and add a bit of green on top, and use a yellow color for some of the triangles.
2. Watercolor Clock
Don’t forget to measure the clock hands for your watercolor clock. You’ll want the base of the clock to be larger than the hands. By the way, when painting, it’s always better to start with the lighter color.
3. Faux Cactus
Scared you won’t be able to keep a plant alive, but still want some greenery in your room? Make a faux cactus room accent. Start by choosing different sizes of rocks and paint on them using green and white paint. You can even come up with different shades of green by mixing the two colors.
4. Gem Mirror
You have found thin lines to look the best for this gem mirror. If you want to follow the thickness of the contact paper placed on the mirror, measure out 1/8” on each side of the lines. Doing so will give you a thickness of 1/4”.
5. String Light Decor
The beauty of string lights is they’re so easy to manipulate. If you place them in enclosed spaces such as paper cups, they’ll instantly turn into makeshift lanterns as well
6. Fabric Covered Styrofoam Balls
These fabric covered styrofoam balls look so intricate, but in reality, the fabric isn’t even sewn on. The secret lies in using a bunch of pins to secure the fabric pieces in place
7. Decorative Pillows
Make your pillows more unique by adding a bit of flair to them. Pom pom pillows because they look so cute! It’s hard to resist playing with the little pom poms on the sides as well.
8. DIY Clothing Rack
If you’re planning on assembling and disassembling this clothing rack a lot, I suggest doing this project without using wood glue. Be careful not to overload the rack as well by only placing items you’re planning to wear for the week.
9. Ikea Hack Floating Shelves
Love Ikea, but wish there was something you could to make it more “you”? Grab some contact paper and DIY your favorite Ikea buy! You won’t even need much for this project.
