5 Spring DIY Projects for the Home

Refresh your abode for spring with these decorating ideas.

Spring is our favorite season because it comes with a sense of renewal. And after a long (and freezing) winter, what could be better than that? It’s a time to revamp and revive and recharge so that you feel as fresh and new as the blossoming flowers. Plus, the changing weather always has us feeling springy, energized, and motivated which is why we seem to constantly find ourselves actually doing cool DIY projects this time of the year. Of course, a lot of the spring DIY ideas we find around the web are a bit much for us: We’re not super-handy with staple guns or saws, and even if we were, we don’t always have the time to do those kinds of lengthy projects. That’s why we scoured the web and rounded up spring decor ideas that are simple, fun and sure to make a big splash—from Aparment Therapy’s fabric switch plates to Design Mom’s painted spoons to Real Simple’s Mason jar night-light. Flip through the slideshow to see the cool spring DIY projects we found that will prepare your home (and your mind) for spring.
