As your child becomes a teenager they will want more of their own space to do with as they want. This space will grow to include their homework space as well. Your teenagers may want to start doing homework in their own bedroom as they get older. When this happens it will be a good time to make a homework space for your teen in their bedroom. To make the space more personable you may want to add some crafts to their homework space. Here are a few ideas for teen bedroom crafts for homework spaces.
Everyone likes to have a bulletin to hang important papers or little mementos on and your teen is no different. You can make a quick bulletin board for your teen’s homework space that will also allow for some personality. You can use an old bulletin board and glue fabric that matches the room around it. You can also make a bulletin board with cardboard and fabric. You would cut a few layers of cardboard from an old box and then glue the fabric around those layers. This idea is great for the homework spaces in your teen’s room because it can hold those important homework papers and yet match the rest of the bedroom.
Another great teen bedroom craft for homework spaces is to paint an old desk or to buy an unfinished desk to paint. You can make the desk fit the decor of the rest of the bedroom by using the same colors. You can make this craftier by adding stenciling to the drawers, chair or desk top. You can also add small wooden crafts to glue on the sides. You can also add fabric to the chair for more decoration. Make the desk colorful and it will add to the room’s feel but give your teen a great homework space.
Instead of buying a bookcase for your teen’s bedroom homework space, you can paint one on the wall to give the space a library type feel. You can also buy a mural to add to part of a wall for the same type of affect. You can also paint shelves to match the desk and the rest of the room’s decor. You can use box shelves and hang them up on the walls for a different look. Keeping the shelves or bookcase to a certain part of the bedroom will help the space stay a homework space.
Another great craft for your teenager’s homework space in their bedroom is to use boxes to store all the homework essentials. This is great for extra shoe boxes lying around your home. This craft could also use cans or plastic tubs you use for butter. You will also need contact paper to cover the boxes or other canisters. You can find contact paper in a variety of colors and patterns. Use these boxes to store extra writing paper or staplers and tape. The canisters can be used to store pens and pencils. You can also use ceramic pots painted to match the bedroom to store the pens and pencils in. Another idea to store pens and pencils is to use clear vases filled with colored marbles to help the pens stay in place.
Teen bedroom crafts for homework spaces can be easily done. Keep the colors the same as the rest of the room to give the room a flow. Keep the homework space uncluttered with plenty of storage and a nice desk painted to give character to the room. As your teen spends more time in their homework space the more they may decide they need in that space to keep it functional. Then they may add to it at will.
