As you may know, I will be heading off to college in just a few short weeks. This means that very soon I will be calling a tiny, white, cinderblock room my new home. To make this transition a little easier, I have been thinking of some DIY decorations that will give my dorm a more "homie" feel. I decided that a memo board filled with pictures of family and friends would be the perfect way to create that cozy space. Making this board was so simple and budget-friendly, it is the perfect addition to any dorm room! :)
Foam Board (I used a 6x6)
Fabric of your choice (I chose my school colors)
Total Cost: Less than $5.00
Step 1: Cut your fabric to be slightly larger than your board and wrap the fabric around the corners of the board (like you would wrap a present).
Step 2: Secure the corners with pins
Step 3: Cut ribbon that is long enough to go around the front of your board and secure them in the back with pins
|I admit, this is not the prettiest back view... but the front is all you will see in the end!! :)|
Step 4: Get crafty! I added some bows on the corners for a little extra touch.
Step 5: Slide mini pictures of friends and family behind the ribbons!
And we are done! So simple and practical! Hope you found this tutorial helpful and I would love to see pictures of your mini memo boards :)
Thanks for reading!
