Leaving home for University can seem like a great way to gain new experiences and learn a lot about yourself.
However during the holiday season, your dorm room can start to feel like a prison that is keeping you from your loved ones.
To help with this here are three decorating tips that will surely bring that Christmas spirit to your little piece of the world.
The Wall Tree
Normal Christmas trees are huge and take up way to much space. To fix that ditch the tree all together, but keep your ornaments.
Arrange your ornaments, lights and even garland in the shape of a tree on one of your empty walls. Use tape or staples to secure your tree, for an added effect put the tree near a light source so you can plug your lights in.
Hanging Snow Flakes
This tip is especially great for Calgarian’s these days, as it has been the brownest Christmas I have ever seen.
Time to go back to those middle school days, because we are about to do some arts and crafts.
For this project you will need, white construction paper, string, and imagination.
Start by folding the white construction paper into the smallest square you can. Then start cutting tiny little holes and slits into the paper. When you unfold it you will have a beautiful snow flake, each one different. Just like the real thing.
Then all you have to do is loop a piece of string to each one so that you can hang them from your ceiling.
This craft will make your dorm room feel like you’re waking up to a winter wonderland, instead of that pile of homework you have waiting to be finished.
The Door Wrapping
Time to remind your roommate that coming home to you every night is a gift!
Get some wrapping paper and large ribbon, wrap your door the same you would any other present.
Make sure your bow is facing outward so that everyone in the hallway can enjoy this decoration.
Hope these decorating tips make your dorm room feel like you’re home for the holidays.
