I found that once I hit teenager-hood, my favourite crafts and DIY became room decorations. Some ideas :)

 

-Make a wall collage. Now this is more of a DIY than a craft, but go online or in magazines and print/cut out a bunch of photos you like, and you can arrange them with Sticky Tack on your wall. My whole left side is covered in photos and it makes me VERY happy.

-If you wear any makeup, try making your own! I have made concealer, BB cream, cream eyeshadow, primer, lip tint, and various lip balms, and it's fun and easy and almost always turns out.

- Craft a decoration for your door!

- Use washi tape to create designs on your wall/door/shelf/whatever

-Rip pages out of an old book and mod-podge them to cardboard, then cut out your initial or whatever letter you would like from the cardboard, then add more mod podge.

I'm 13 already, but whatever, I can help anyway.

So...you could take a jar, put in a list of folded up ideas and cut into seperate papers, put colorful papers on it, glue a small square of fabric on the lid, put some ribbon around the seal, and you have a journal jar!!! You can open the jar, take out a paper, and whenever you don't have anything to write about, you write what idea is listed on the paper.

So yeah.
