Your teen boy can be very particular about the things that are put into his bedroom. Just say the word craft and most teenage boys will wrinkle their nose and refuse to do it much less put a craft into their bedroom. At the same time your teen son wants his bedroom to show his personality and things that he likes. The bedroom of your teenage boy needs to become more grown up then when he was a child. Here are some ideas for teen bedroom crafts for boys.
First thing about crafts for boys is to not make it sound so girly with ribbons and bows. Don’t think of this as teen bedroom crafts for boys but as things that your teen boy can build to display in their room. Most boys have ribbons, awards or metals from some type of sport. Your teenage boy could make a simple shelf design to display all these awards. Then he can paint the shelf in a color that matches the room. Building things and painting things is very manly. Have your teenage boy hang up the homemade shelf himself.
Another good teen bedroom craft for boys would be to let him build his own solar system to hang from the ceiling. This idea is great if they are going with a whole space or alien themed bedroom. You can find solar system kits at any local craft store or on the Internet; you can also find directions on the Internet to make one without the kit. When doing crafts with boys you want to focus more on them building things and this is why this craft is a great idea for a teen boy.
For a teen bedroom that has an outdoor type feel you can make birdhouses to use as bookends on any shelf. This adds a unique look to the room and satisfies your teenagers own personal likes. You can also use an old outdoors magazine to cut out animal pictures. Glue these pictures to a wooden board and then apply a decoupage over the top of the picture. When these pictures are hung on the walls it will give the room some artwork.
Your teen boy can also paint the walls with different designs that they like. This may not be a craft but it is something that requires some skill to do. Have your teen find a pattern they like and grid it out on the walls. Decide on the paint colors you want to use for the bedroom and then help your teen paint the design onto the walls. This idea is great for a checker or chess player because of the great patterns those boards have.
Boys of all ages like to get their hands dirty. A great craft idea for a teen boy is to let them make their own pottery or sculptures. There are stores that have all the materials for you in the store for your use. These stores will also have someone around to help you if needed. You can also buy clay to have your son make sculptures to display on their walls or shelves of their bedroom. This craft is fairly easy for any skill level and only requires that you read the directions on how to use the clay.
Teen bedroom crafts for boys do not need to be frilly, girly or include any sewing. Let your teen boy build and make things that will reflect his personality and the adult that they are becoming. Painting and creating are just some crafts that a teenage boy would like to do.
