There’s not a lot of space, all that cinderblock can make a dorm room look kinda like a prison cell, and for a few years, half of the room isn’t even yours to decorate. To top it off, there’s usually a harsh, fluorescent light that makes it painful to even look around. One decorative and useful way to light up your space is creating Mason Jar Lanterns! This inexpensive and DIY project is perfect for college students on a budget and can be bought at any Michaels or AC Moore.
