Cute room decor has never felt so important! With online classes keeping us in our dorms, I have been super picky ensuring that my room looks spick and span. There are TikToks floating around with seemingly spotless dorms, all having one thing in common: attention to details! If you love glitter and aesthetically pleasing collages, this DIY is for you! Here is an easy craft that will take any wall like the one below from a dusty 8 to a glistening 10.

What you’ll need:

  • Canvas ($5 at 5 Below)
  • Glue stick
  • Mod Podge
  • Resin
  • Gloves (safety first!)
  • Glitter
  • 4+ Developed photos (4x4 prints are FREE on the Shutterfly app)
  • 10+ Developed aesthetic background patterns (4x4 size recommended). Feel free to check out the patterns at the bottom of this article! Pinterest has a bunch of options as well!



  1. Experiment with collage layouts. The aesthetic patterns and photos can be layered any way you like
  2. Take a photo of the layout (you may want to refer back to it when gluing)
  3. Use glue stick to attach all images to the canvas
  4. Cover the entire collage with 2-3 layers of Mod Podge
  5. Put on gloves
  6. Mix glitter into resin (optional)
  7. Pour resin over the top of collage
  8. Allow to dry for about 24 hours
  9. Enjoy your super cute, aesthetically pleasing collage!
