10+ Brilliant Ways You Can Hack An Everyday Bedsheet

Diply 22 Oct 2018

A few months ago I stumbled upon my first bedsheet hack. Someone had decided to use a white bedsheet as the base of their DIY tapestry, which I thought was pretty darn cool.

Over the course of the last few weeks I've stumbled upon even more random bedsheet hacks, so I decided to pool them together and share this list with you!

There's actually a surprising amount of good stuff here, so let's get this party started.

1. As you can probably guess, as a Hack and DIY Writer, I've become pretty darn frugal.

Like, I'm a huge sucker for a deal. I will buy something on sale because it's cute, not because I need it.

Anyway, my point is that when it comes to certain things like curtains, I don't want to pay more than I have to.

If you don't have a barn, a basement or any wall works pretty well.

And playing video games on one of these things is actually pretty cool, too! Thanks Little Lady Little City for this idea.
