DIY Dorm Room Decor

All opinions are mine alone. #CreateWithHP   #CollectiveBias With back to school right around the corner, I've been brainstorming some ideas for my first-ever college "dorm" while I'm going to be at the Disney College Program! Obviously in dorms and apartments, you can't damage the walls by hanging frames on nails, and using masking tape or even regular tape can damage the walls. I'm going to be showing you guys today how I used my HP DeskJet 3636 to create some super fun dorm decor!


Here is the printer I purchased from Walmart. Isn't it adorable? It is super affordable, so it's perfect for college students, since I know how tight budgets can be. It's also pretty compact and easy to move around, plus has wireless printing, so it's basically the perfect college printer.


And, just because it's inexpensive doesn't mean they skimped out on quality. It's one of the best printers on the market, especially with the price tag. HP also has very affordable ink, and their ink lasts almost twice as long as competitors. That's a budget I can get behind.


Now into the tutorial! You're first going to want to create prints, or buy them. The one's I'm using are from my Etsy store. You can find tons of gorgeous prints for $10 and under on websites like creative market or etsy. Then, you're going to set up your printer and then print the prints out. You can print them out on photo paper, regular paper or cardstock, whatever you prefer.


Then you'll want to grab some Washi tape. This set is from Amazon, but Walmart sells really great ones, as well as any craft store. You can get creative and buy some patterned ones or you can use plain ones. It's your dorm room, so you may as well make it your own!


Then you're going to create frames around the prints using the washi tape. You can get creative in this step too, by adding double borders or accents with the washi tape. I love the simplicity of basic frames, but really the sky is the limit.


Here's where you can find these all new printers at Walmart! You can find them featured in the back to school section, or in your printer aisle.
