DIY Tumblr Bedroom Ideas For Craft Lovers
A Tumblr or Pinterest-worthy bedroom doesn’t have to be expensive. In fact, most Tumblr bedroom ideas are super easy to DIY! It just takes some time and creativity. But believe me, the results are picture-perfect. What could be better than customizing your very own monogram letters, learning how to make a no-sew pillow, or turning last year’s Christmas lights into trendy string lights? Read on for some of my favorite DIY Tumblr bedroom ideas.
1. Throw Pillows
Here’s what you’ll need:
Step 1: Cut the fabric
Cut it into any shape or size you want. Just make sure both pieces are exactly the same!
Step 2: Glue the fabric together
Glue 3 of the outsides together. Don’t glue the 4th!
Step 3: Flip the cloth inside out
Now you’ve got a simple pillow case.
Step 4: Decorate the pillow case
You can cut shapes of fabric, or use beads or any decor you want.
Step 5: Stuff the pillow
Take your pillow insert or stuffing, and stuff the pillow until it’s full.
Step 6: Glue the pillow shut
Glue the open side, and fold the edges together for a clean line. Then you’re done!
2. Monogram Letters
Next up is one of the most popular Tumblr bedroom ideas. And also one of the easiest.
For this, you’ll need:
Step 1: Spray paint the letters
You can use any spray paint color you want, and decorate it however you’d like to. Pastel or glitter spray paint is a great match for the rest of your Tumblr bedroom ideas.
Step 2: Glue the letters together
Make sure your last name’s initial is the biggest letter in the middle. Now you can mount it on your wall!
3. Ping Pong Ball String Lights
Other super popular and easy Tumblr bedroom ideas include these string lights. Make them in just 2 easy steps.
- Christmas Lights
- Ping Pong Balls
- A Pen
Step 1: Make holes in the ping pong balls
Using a pen, make holes in each of the ping pong balls.
Step 2: Place the Christmas lights in
Put each Christmas light into the holes you made. Make sure not to cut yourself! Once you’ve finished, you’re ready to hang them up in your room.
4. Frame Wall
Frame walls are always a good idea, and they’re fully customizable.
For this, you’ll need:
- Photo Frames
- Pictures or Art
- Mini canvases
- Wooden Letters or other decors
- Spray paint
- Chalkboard paint
- Command Strips
Step 1: Spray paint the frames
Empty them out before taking out the backing and the glass. Then, spray paint using your favorite colors!
Step 2: Create a chalkboard
Use one of the glass inserts for this. Just paint it with chalkboard paint, and let dry before you place it black in the frame.
Step 3: Lay out the frames
It’s best to assemble the frames on the floor first, before proceeding to mounting them on the wall.
Step 4: Mount the frames
Once you’ve figured out where to place them, use command strips to mount the frames on your wall.
5. Mosaic Glass Canvas Art
This mosaic art hack is an affordable way to add an artsy feel to your room.
Step 1: Cut up the CDs
Other projects use real glass, but CDs are a cheaper (and safer!) option, especially if you’re new to DIY projects. Just cut the CDs up into triangles with a pair of scissors!
Step 2: Prepare the canvas
Spread the clay all over the canvas.
Step 3: Place the CDs
While the clay is still wet, press the CD pieces on.
Step 4: Finish with rubber cement
Cover the entire canvas with one coat of rubber cement so the pieces stay on. Then, display it in your bedroom!
6. Glitter Mason Jars
Mason jars aren’t only a favorite among Tumblr bedroom ideas, but also among DIYers! This next DIY will make your jars Tumblr-worthy.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Step 1: Paint the Mason jars
Spray paint your mason jars with whatever colors you want. You can even use the same colors you used for the frame wall and monogram letters.
Step 2: Glitter the rims
Once the paint is dry, coat the top rims in mod podge, and sprinkle glitter. Once the glitter is dry, you can use your mason jars to store anything!
7. DIY Canvas Art
