Spring brings so much more than melting snow and warm
weather – it offers the chance to start anew, reevaluate our lives, and move
forward with hope and optimism. Your home can reflect this exciting sentiment
as well, with a few DIY home décor projects that bring spring indoors. Here are
some simple and beautiful home furnishings you can make yourself.
Spring Floral Sign
Depending on your preference, use real or fake flowers and
pinch the heads off each. Discard the stems (into a compost pile for living
plants) and glue each flower to a plywood board of any size. For a real eye-catching
piece that doubles as a backdrop for a spring photobooth, go big with large
piece of wood and flowers of varying colors. If you choose, cut out letters
that read “Spring 2021”, “New Beginnings”, or “Spring has Sprung” and glue to your
gorgeous spring floral sign.
For the home décor gift that keeps on giving, string
together a flower-focused chandelier. Use fresh flowers from the garden and swap them out with fresh
ones each week. Or, as flowers dry, they become unique and beautiful in their
own right. With string, wood, and a little time, this over-the-table
installation easily comes to life.
Color-Block Wood Vase
Create these colorful vases
with just a few items from any craft store. Choose paint colors that complement
your home’s existing aesthetic and block off an afternoon. Cover a glass vase
in an adhesive wood sheet. Block off sections with painter’s tape and let your
inner artist out. These vases can be used year after year with April’s arrival!
Living Door Wreath
Green thumbs and aspiring gardeners unite. This living door hanging can be made out of a variety of air plants, including moss and
succulents. Depending on your craft and gardening skill levels, create this
stunning greenery with foam, fishing line, and living plants. Let the plants
speak for themselves or attach a cute spring-related phrase to let everyone who
comes over experience just how exciting this time of the year can be.
Welcoming Door Mat
Can’t find a door mat that captures exactly what you’d like
to say to guests? Make your own! Grab a plain burlap or woven brown rug and
choose outdoor, pastel colored spray paint. Find a stencil online or make your
own. Better yet, you can turn this craft project into an all-day affair by
making placemats, a tablecloth, or even tapestry-style wall hanging by
following the same format. Here’s the tutorial.
