Another way of jazzing up your dorm room without spending too much money is to make things yourself. This is will not only give everything a real personal touch, but also allow you to make things exactly the way you want them to be. If you’re a budding artist, why not do some paintings or drawings yourself to put on the wall? Or if art isn’t your thing, try asking a more creative friend to make some pictures for you – they’ll probably be so flattered that you’ve recognised their talent that they’ll love the chance to help you out. In addition, get some nice photographs of special memories and place these around your dorm room. Not only will it make the place special for you, but also make you look really cool and popular!
