This quick dorm craft adds a dash of whimsy and style to any dorm room or first apartment - and besides, that refrigerator door/drab bulletin board/old metal file cabinet was just crying out for adornment.

This not-too-messy project is fun on its own, but it also makes a great craft activity for graduation parties, winter break reunions, and during those summer doldrums before dorm move-in day.

A set of campus thumbtacks or magnets would be a fun gift to tuck into a care package too.
