I live in an apartment-style dorm. I decorated a little in the beginning of the school year, but last night (at 2 a.m. of course) I realized I had a lot of things with my monogram on it, but, nothing with any sayings on it! I came across a quote on Twitter that I absolutely fell in love with- so it had to be painted and put on my walls! 🙂
I used this owl-shaped piece of wood that I bought at Michael’s craft store over the summer that I hadn’t done anything with. Then, I painted it with two coats of white paint.
I decided to use the quote: “She needed a hero so that’s what she became” because a little girl power is ALWAYS needed! I used my favorite gold paint that I also bought at Michaels’s craft store. Make sure that when you’re using a gold paint, to buy the metallic gold paint! It will shimmer, and look GORG (just like all of you!).
Make sure to go over the words at least twice, so the paint isn’t transparent!
At first, I was thinking I liked the board with just the words, and no bedazzles, but I wouldn’t be Danie without any extras on my crafts! So, I decided to look in my crafting bin for something cute I had to put on it, and I found two pretty fake flowers!
I just magically had two flowers left- so, it was meant to be for this craft! I just hot glued them on, and they stayed perfectly.
Now it’s time to hang up your masterpiece! I used a command hook and hung it up in my living room!
I hung it up underneath of one of the many monograms that are in my apartment!
These small things make your dorm room have personality! I would love to see some of your DIYs that are in your dorms!
