10 DIY Art Ideas To Perk Up Your Bedroom
The bedroom is like your private sanctuary. Of all the rooms in the house, this is the one that truly feels yours. So, it's obvious that you put extra thought and care while setting up your bedroom. You want it to feel like a safe space where you can unwind after a long and hectic day. The elements you choose to incorporate here decide the mood of your room.
Allow us to help you decorate your room with some simple DIY ideas and tricks that will perk up the vibe of your bedroom.
1. Frame pressed flowers
This is one of the easiest and most natural ways of adding life to your bare walls. Take your favourite flowers or leaves and glue them to a glass frame. Make sure not to clutter the wall or the essence of its beauty will be lost.

2. PDA on the wall
Photos capture your favourite moments for an eternity. So why keep them trapped in a phone or album? Print your favourite moments on polaroids and paste them on a wall shaped like a heart. Everytime you go to sleep, you’ll be surrounded by your favourite people and happy vibes!
3. Hang a Pin Banner
Want to show your love for your favourite fandom or TV series? Theme based Pin badges are aplenty in the market. Flaunt your collection with a pin banner. It doesn’t occupy too much space and is a low maintenance, quirky addition to your decor.
4. Use artworks wisely
Though you can hang a painting anywhere, when put up in the right place, it can really bring out the character of your room. For example: placing a colourful painting behind a simple dresser takes attention away from the multitude of drawers, giving a neat and organized look.
On the other hand, if you have a bright dresser, a monochrome artwork will work really well in the background.

5. Create a reading corner
If you’re a bibliophile, creating a cozy reading corner is probably on top of your priority list. If not, it's always good to have a dedicated space for working or studying (Welcome to the era of work from home!) You can either go for a conventional look—small study table with a table lamp and some bookshelves; or ditch the table for a comfortable couch or lounge chair where you can curl up with a cup of tea or coffee!
Add a set of mugs and coasters for an aesthetic touch to the setup!
6. Create a showstopper wall
Use your bedroom wall as a canvas to play out your innovative ideas! If adding a mere wallpaper doesn’t feel enough, add a statement artwork. Everytime you step into your room, you’ll be greeted by this wall born out of your creativity!
7. Hanging Notepad
Not a fan of hanging paintings inside your bedroom? Keep things simple with a hanging notepad. Like the badge pin banner, it doesn’t occupy a lot of space and adds a quirky yet minimal touch to your room. If you live with a roommate or sibling, you can even leave cute notes for each other!
Here are the instructions for a DIY hanging notepad
8. Recycle your tote bags into cushion covers
You probably have a mini collection of tote bags from your college days when they were all the rage. Instead of throwing them away, use them to make cushion covers. You could even add these to your cozy reading corner!

9. Keep things lit!
One can’t deny the allure of fairy lights. They are easily available and add a bohemian aesthetic to your room. You can either create a garland of pictures hanging from the fairy lights on a wall or stuff them inside a big glass jar. It’ll be the perfect backdrop for your social media pictures!
10. DIY Personalized Photo Clock
Since wall clocks are gradually becoming outdated, spice things up by creating your own clock. You’ll only need pictures of your favourite people or moments, and a clock movement kit. It’s so much more lively than just placing drab photo frames around the room!
Here’s how you can make your own bedroom photo clock
