DIY Giant Mouse Pad | Back to College

1 min read

Hey, y’all! Welcome to part two of my 3  part Back to College series on my blog. Last week, I showed you guys how to create a simple DIY Rustic Photo Display. So, this week we’re taking our decorations from the wall to the desk. 😀 This DIY Giant Mouse Pad can bring a lot of color to a plain looking desk!

DIY Giant Mouse Pad

MATERIALS

  • hot glue gun
  • 1 yard o fabric
  • scissors
  • a 12 x 4 piece of wood
  • a marker

STEP ONE:

Lay your piece of wood flat on the inverted side of the fabric.

STEP TWO:

Using a permanent marker, outline the piece of wood. Don’t worry, your measurements don’t have to be perfect. As you can probably tell, I  kinda just eyeballed mine. 

STEP THREE:

Cut along the line you drew and hot glue the sides to the piece of wood. I cut the edges of fabric diagonally,  so that it would lay flat. 

Finished Product

I didn’t take any super good, aesthetically pleasing photos of this DIY, but here are pictures of the first time I created this DIY. More of these photos can be found in My College Dorm Room.

Yes, I made two post in one day! Check out My College Apartment Tour!
