Flowery letters: This one is a great DIY bedroom idea for teens. Buy large wooden letters that spell out any name / phrase you want, and glue artificial (but beautiful) flowers to their surface. Hang on to the wall.
Crochet pillow: Add a crochet pillow to your bed / living room to give your bedroom a cozy touch. You can use a neutral shade or a bright, colorful yarn.
Hanging terrarium and hanging cupboard
Storage is key, so go for hanging bedroom decorations.
Hanging terrarium: Buy a plastic / glass terrarium and fill it with a variety of plants. Tie a strong string to it and hang it in your bedroom for a cool and airy feeling.
Wardrobe: Showcase your clothing collection using a hanging closet. Tie twine to a long wooden branch to make a handy hanging closet.
Wall plants and bookshelf
Wall plants: The planters on the table are clichés. For a modern touch, buy square pots, paint them in eye-catching colors, and nail them to the wall as you like.
Bookshelf: If you want a small bookshelf in your bedroom, put two racks on one of the walls and stack all your favorite books on them. Easy peasy!
Mason Jar Lamps and Thread Lantern
Mason Jar Lamps: Get yourself some mason jars and put on the lights of your choice. Decorate them in a row or hang them, according to your taste.
Wire lantern: Inflate a balloon, wrap cotton / wool thread around until you get the desired pattern. When finished, pin the balloon. Insert the lights into the lantern and hang up wherever you want.
