This week I will be breaking down the dorm room designs so you can implement our easy but awesome ideas for yourself.
First up- the “cloud-like” light. This idea first made an appearance in my guest bedroom. Over the past year tons of people have asked me how to do it. Well, I finally decided to let go of my secret- coffee filters!!!

You start with a simple paper lantern. . .

Gather a coffee filter together, add some hot glue to the bottom, and stick it on the lantern. Keep doing this until your light is completely covered. And you end up with this!

The final look gives off this heavenly glow and the price is to die for-
$6 paper lantern$10 light cord$1 coffee filters
TOTAL- $17
The best part is that this “fixture” is so light you can hang it from the ceiling with an adhesive hook- no holes in your walls or wiring required. Perfect for the dorm room diva or a renter looking to enhance their place!
This is not the first time I have used coffee filters to creatively and cheaply spruce up my space. I also created some art work a while back.

I think the possibilities are probably endless with these little guys. Have any of you worked some decorating magic with coffee filters for yourself?
