Hello friends, it’s Aly here with a project I created for my daughter who’s off to college next week. Attending BYU is a lifelong dream for this girl! I’m so proud of her and I wanted to celebrate her exciting achievement with some fun dorm decor that she can proudly hang in her new digs.
Her new school colors are navy blue and tan. Since the walls in her dorm room are a light beige (pretty close to tan), I decided to stick with navy and another coordinating blue color. I started by punching out her school letters with the Alphabet Punch Board. To give them a bit more emphasis I punched out two sets of letters from some dotted swiss Bazzill cardstock, one in the cornflower color and one in the navy color. Then I adhered them so that the darker blue creates the look of a shadow.
I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch holes in the tops of the letters for hanging.
Next, I made some pennants with my Banner Punch Board to give the garland that classic college feel.
I made some tassels with the new Tassel Loom and some yarn I picked up at my local craft store in my daughter’s school colors.
Last, I made some extra large pom poms with the Jumbo Pom Pom Maker and strung them together to make a garland with a tassel at each end.
I hung both the pom pom garland and the school letters garland up with some fairy lights to complete the look.
I love how easy it was to create this fun decor with my stash of We R tools, and I can’t wait to help my daughter get settled in her new dorm room next week. (Though I may shed a few tears driving home). Have a great weekend, and happy crafting friends!
