I’m not great at crafting, but I can get by. A few of these are DIY’s that I didn’t get around to, but plan on doing when I have a bigger space than half of a 13×13 foot dorm room to decorate. One of these is my way of bragging that I learned how to cross stitch. But honestly you should too, it’s not that hard.
All of that being said- I also know that crafting can be stressful and frustrating if you’re not all that good at it, and sometimes it’s just better for you and those around you to just cough up the money and buy the dang thing. So I’ve included Etsy links where you can get these already-handmade by people who have the talent and patience to do so. Don’t feel bad if you’re somebody who ends up using those links instead, because full disclosure, I am too.
