17 DIY Projects That Will Make Your Room Pretty AF

Here is some ~personal~ news: I just moved into a new place and am desperately trying to make my room pretty and cozy. It’s not that my old room wasn’t pretty, but I didn’t really care about what it looked like when I moved in – I just needed a place to sleep and watch Netflix. This time around, though, I wanted to make it different. I really want a room that I actually enjoy being in and having people over. That’s not too much to ask, right? Everyone wants a pretty room that they can hang out in (or Instagram) and it’s actually a lot easier than it looks, if you put the effort in.

Sure, you could buy some wall art from Ikea, or hang up photos (both are good options) but you can also make some DIY projects that will instantly give your room a pretty upgrade. DIYing is the way to go – it’s cheap and easy, and there is nothing better than getting a compliment on something than saying “THANKS! I made that!” Plus, you can customize everything to make it fit your own personal style and color scheme. So if you’re looking for some easy ways to make your room super pretty this fall, check out these easy and fun DIY room projects.
