As your child becomes a teenager they will want more of their own space to do with as they want. Your teenager will want their room to reflect their personality. Your teenager’s space is their safety zone and a place where they can explore who they are. When you begin giving your teenager’s room a makeover you may be looking at some crafts to do to add some uniqueness to the room that fits the personality of your teenager. Here are some teen bedroom crafts for personal spaces.
Painted furniture is a big trend in home decor these days. This should be no different when creating your teen’s bedroom. Painting existing furniture will give new life to the old furniture and create a different look for the room. You can also buy used furniture to paint. Painting the furniture can be as crafty as you would like. You can add stenciling to any of the furniture you are painting to add more personality to the room. You can use a variety of colors to paint just one piece of furniture. This craft is great for the personal spaces in a teen’s bedroom because it is a place where they can truly show their personality.
Another teen bedroom craft for personal spaces would be to make a dressing screen into a place to display all their pictures. This can be done two ways; the first way is to buy a screen that you can paint yourself. If the screen has fabric you may want to replace the fabric with some thin wood to create a place to hang the photos. You can also make a screen to fit exactly what you want. You can find the directions on-line. The screen craft can be used to divide your teen’s room allowing more of a personal space if they want.
You can make your own artwork for your teen’s bedroom or they can help you make the artwork. This artwork does not have to be perfect or of museum quality. You can find blank canvas in many shapes and sizes at any craft store. Find paints in the colors your teen likes and start painting.
You can use geometric shapes, paint splatters, graphs or anything that can represent things your teen likes. This is a great craft to do together and it will really dress up the personal spaces in your teen’s room.
Stenciling words, quotes or phrases is also a popular option for decorating. This is a great craft for teen bedrooms because they can choose words that mean something to them. You can stencil with paint and a paint brush or you can use vinyl lettering to help stencil. You can make the stencils go around the room or just around their own personal space. This craft idea is good for inspirational quotes for your teen.
You can also make pottery to hold some of your teen’s personal things in their bedrooms. This can be done at pottery stores. This is a great craft for your teen to do with friends too. They can make their own pots, bowls or plates to help decorate their own personal space in their bedrooms or to hold their personal things. You can then paint the pottery you make to match the other colors of your teen’s bedroom.
Teen bedroom crafts for personal spaces don’t need to be hard. Find crafts that are fun and quick for your teen to enjoy. Try to reflect your teen’s personality as much as you can since this is their space. Listen to what they want in their room and incorporate as much as possible. Teen’s personal spaces should be their safe zone.
