Shot glasses are not just for the weekends…

Shot glasses are a nice touch on your bookshelf

Typical dorm decor includes: posters, pictures of friends, and the occasional Syracuse University banner. All of which makes for lovely wall art. On the other hand, when you walk into my room, you are quickly greeted by my collection of shot glasses that adorns my bookshelves. Many get a good chuckle at this spectacle, but my question is, “why not use them as decorations?” As you can see in the photo, I have some lined up alongside my “big boy glass” and have others scattered alongside picture frames and other memorabilia.

If you’re looking to redesign your room for the new semester, try arranging your shot glasses or other alcohol-related items in a visually appealing way. Bottles, mugs, “big boy/girl cups,” and other items make for fantastic decorations. If you’re just beginning to build your shot glass collection, look for something that is eye-catching and unique. Urban Outfitters or Spencer’s is a great place to start.

Once you have found the perfect one, place it alongside a picture of your friends or even put it alongside your stack of school books as a reminder that the weekend is only days away.

Highlight a memory with a shot glass from the trip

While most throw away the evidence of weekend’s past, I suggest you keep it. Some of the larger and more colorful bottles make for great decor. You can stuff a string of lights into an empty handle of vodka and you have yourself a lamp. You could also take a silver marker and write memorable quotes or memories from that weekend all over the bottle. If you turn the evidence into decor, it can no longer be defined as a dorm violation.

So as you peer into your trashcan this weekend and see the Svedka bottle lying there, consider taking it out and turning it into something fabulous.
