25+ Cute Dorm Room DIY Projects to make with a Cricut

This year my “baby twins” graduate High School. They are my youngest and I don’t EVEN want to think about them going to college right now and leaving me all alone. Since my oldest daughter just graduated from college, we have a bit of experience with the whole “set up a dorm room” thing.  She moved several times during her college years and each time her apartment (or dorm) had its own set of organizing and decorating challenges. At first, I always went out to help her move. However, after a few times, she got the hang of doing it herself.

As we prepare to send our next ones off to college, I find myself itching to craft (probably as a way to deal with the fact that I’m soon to be an empty nester). I’ve been gathering ideas for my kids’ dorm rooms and thought that you might like to see some of the projects I’ve found online.
