One of the best parts about ditching the cold weather is the chance to open your windows and let the fresh spring air waft into your home. But, for those of us who suffer from allergies, you can’t always leave the windows open. If this describes your household, then try recreating your own spring scents with a little help from your stove. Boil some water and add lemon slices, essential oils like lavender or rosemary, and in no time you’ll have a fresh smelling home without all of the troublesome pollen.
With spring comes Easter, and if your kids are waiting patiently for a visit from the Easter bunny, then they’ll love decorating your home with themed décor. If you have some old paint samples lying around, you can create this fun paint chip carrot garland to hang across your mantle. And who could resist this adorable bunny decoration made from the pages of an old book and a cotton ball.
A cheery spring wreath can be just the thing to brighten up your front door and welcome visitors. While you can practically use anything to create your wreath (some have even used garden hoses), here’s one that’s made out of paper doilies. You know you have some of those left from your child’s class Valentine’s party. Add a few brightly-colored silk flowers and you have a beautiful centerpiece for your outdoor décor.
Nothing says spring like flowers. Whether they are perky annuals or hearty perennials that made it through the harsh winter, they will all look beautiful inside a decorated flower pot on your front porch. To add a little more whimsy to your flower pots, try painting them in festive spring colors or using Mod Podge to attach fabric to the pots like in this DIY decorated flower pot tutorial.
