via I Spy DIY
Washi tape is no longer what I thought it was… I must admit that I thought washi tape was a little young and too decorative for too many truly cool projects. This one has me rethinking this belief. I am so decorating my bedroom door with black and purple washi tape this weekend! Be sure to send pics if you do the same- add them in the comments below. This is one of those super easy projects to do at home that you wish you had thought of doing much sooner. So creative, so clever!
2. DIY String Art Sign

The washi tape is back. Not sure you should decorate your entire room with washi tape, but the door and light switch ideas sure are cool.

I am always looking for interesting ways to display my photos so I can enjoy them and show them off.

Print your filtered instagram prints for an ultra cool effect. I wonder if people will even be printing photos 5 years from now. Who knows…
11. Flower String Lights
Jordan Ferney, who created Oh Happy Day, has some of the most creatively cool ideas ever. Most of them are not terrible expensive, either.

16. Paper Napkin Garland Tutorial
This crafty idea is from one of the most beautiful DIY blogs around. Her photos are stunning, but the project tutorials are also super well done. Not afraid of a Pinterest fail on this one. Looking for uses for leftover party napkins and/or an almost free DIY project idea? Here is nirvana. Hope yours turns out as well as mine did. I made one with my baby cousins pink and purple birthday party napkins. Now, the question is, do you go to parties and start keeping the napkins for projects? Is that rude? I so hope that is not me, but it just may be someday soon if I don’t stop now…
17. Ping Pong Ball Pendant Light
18. DIY Faux Flower Monogram
19. Heart Photo Wall
Love, love, love. I absolutely adore this idea for displaying boyfriend photos. Well, if I had a boyfriend. But still…This is cool because you can dedicate an entire corner to prince charming and then if he turns into a frog, instantly remove and replace. hahaha. The quote thing is cool, too. I have a ton of quotes and things I’d like to see, and if I had that boyfriend, maybe some notes or letters from him, too. No tutorial necessary for this one, girls!
20. String Lights on Mason Jar Pedestals
Yep. I know this may be going just a tad bit overboard, as this is a dollar store craft, an mason jar craft and also a DIY project using string lights, but hey, this is what is popular, right? Reminds me a little bit of the redneck wine glass, unfortunately, but these are actually very pretty and a perfect choice for teen girl bedroom decor. Add garlands of stars for an extra effect and you get to decide whether your string lights will be clear or colorful. A candlestick compliments of the dollar store, some E600 glue, and you are ready to make this easy DIY idea. LED lights strings with batteries are also avail for $1 at Michaels or a dollar store. Be sure to get cordless LEDs for this DIY project.
