Decorating your teen’s bedroom does not need to be expensive or hard. You can make your teen’s bedroom into the sanctuary from the world that they want in a simple and inexpensive way. There are plenty of ways to go about giving your teen a bedroom makeover that is do-able for even the least crafty person. Here are a few easy chic teen bedroom crafts that will be simple to make and yet add some chic to their bedroom.
Making a bulletin board out of cardboard or plywood is a very easy craft. The bulletin board can be made more chic by adding a great fabric and ribbon to decorate it with. You will want to wrap the fabric around the plywood or the cardboard and glue the fabric to the back. If using plywood for your background you may want to add a little padding before wrapping the fabric around it. This gives the push pins something to push into instead of hard wood. Also, the more cardboard you use the better it will be on the wall behind the bulletin board. You can add the ribbon in a graph pattern by gluing the ribbon ends to the back of the bulletin board. The ribbon can also be used as a trim around the edges. No matter how you create the bulletin board it will add a chic look to any teen bedroom.
Another great yet easy chic teen bedroom craft has to do with storage. In this craft you can use old shoe boxes, unpainted boxes found at craft stores, clay pots or even plastic tubs from your groceries. You will also need contact paper, paint that can go on plastic, regular paint and fabric. You can use as much or as little as you want to use of those products.
The plastic paint can be used on the tubs to decorate and then use for hair accessories or other miscellaneous items. The clay pots can be used for pens, pencils or anything else you may think of to store in them. The boxes can be used for magazines, movies, music discs or books. Decorate them any way you like for a chic look to be added to your teen’s bedroom.
For another chic and easy teen bedroom craft you can make your own artwork. You can buy unpainted canvas at any craft store. These canvas frames come in a variety of shapes and sizes so it will be easy to find one that will fit the bedroom you are making the artwork for. On the canvas you can paint anything that you want. Paint splatters and shapes will look chic on a plain painted wall. You can also paint just a single object or the outline of an object. All these artwork ideas can be very easy and chic.
Easy chic bedroom crafts can also include painting the walls. The biggest trend lately is to have a chalkboard wall. Let your teen explore this option for adding new and chic designs daily. The wall will need to be bare of paper and sanded a bit to hold the primer. Prime the wall you are looking at applying chalkboard paint to and then follow the directions on the back of the paint box. Add colored chalks found just about anywhere to their room for friends and family to write on the finished wall. Store the chalk in a clay pot or painted plastic tub.
Easy chic teen bedroom crafts are all over. The easiest way to re-do a room is to add paint. Painted furniture is gaining in popularity and is also an option to help make the bedroom chic. Keep your eye out when shopping for the bedroom and you can almost always find something to make yourself that is easy and can be chic.
