Spring means new beginnings, which also means spring cleaning. This might sound boring, but it’s incredibly necessary, especially in your bedroom, which has been collecting dust all winter. And once you’ve done your spring cleaning, you might realize that you need to update your room decor. Does that mean it’s time to break the bank at the store? No! It means it’s time to break out the glue gun and begin on a few DIY decoration projects for your room. Spring is all about flowers and soft colors, and who wouldn’t want that kind of prettiness surrounding them in their bedrooms?
DIY projects are super fun and really satisfying, because you know that you made something yourself instead of just simply going to a store and buying it. The below ideas are relatively simple and will make your room look unique and super creative. Who isn’t into that aesthetic? If you’re feeling inspired to bring the spring season into your bedroom, read on to learn how to make these 11 DIY projects that will have your room looking amazing for spring:
1. Paint old mason jars to use them as vases or pretty containers for small objects.
With a little help from some paint, you can transform boring mason jars into beautiful vases to hold your favorite flowers. Mason jar vases will help add a pretty touch of spring to your room. If you’re not into flowers, you can use these to hold smaller items like makeup brushes, pens, or even combs.
2. Make a jewelry holder reminiscent of the perfect spring flower.
Never lose or tangle your jewelry again with this mesh jewelry holder. This helps organize your jewelry as well as put it on display.
3. Get personal with a fake flower initial letter decoration.
This flowered accent letter will be the perfect addition to your bedroom. Hang it above your bed or even lean it against the wall on your dresser or desk. If you’re gagging at the thought of pink and white flowers, you can do something more *edgy* like black or neon.
4. Show off your favorite photos with a little Polaroid frame.
Polaroid pictures are so awesome with their vintage vibe. I’m in love with them. They’re so small that they can be hard to display, but this is a cute way to do it. And if you don’t have a Polaroid camera, you could take any printed photos and hang them on the clothespin.
5. Make over your lampshade.
These pretty fabric roses are super cute and easy to make. You can pick whatever colored fabric you want that matches your room. If you hate the flower look, you can do this with almost anything from the craft store!
6. Reuse an upside down garbage cans are your new night stand.
Buy a cheap metal garbage can and simply spray paint any color you want to add a pop to your room. So crafty, and no one would ever be able to detect that your nightstand could also be used to hold garbage.
7. Create a vanity for all your hair and beauty needs.
This project may require buying a few pieces, but putting together your own vanity will be way less expensive than buying one already made. All you’ll need for your DIY vanity is a a full length mirror (like the one pictured above), a desk if you don’t already have one in your room, and a desk chair . The desk and chair don’t have to be super fancy and you could always add small touches like flowers and picture frames to dress it up.
8. Use a ladder to organize your blankets.
Although spring will bring warmer temperatures, that doesn’t mean we still can’t cozy up at night with a warm, fuzzy blanket. If you need somewhere to store all your winter blankets because five blankets on your bed isn’t necessary, this DIY ladder is for you.
9. Re-purpose the drawers of an old dresser as shelves.
Whether you or someone in your family is getting rid of an old dresser, or you find a cheap one at a thrift store, you could bring that dresser back to life as adorable shelves. You’ll first need to sand down the sides and back of the drawers to make them nice and smooth. Paint the drawers with any color acrylic paint you want, then line the inside of the drawers with any print wrapping paper. Nail the drawers to the wall and you have fun decorative shelves.
10. Repurpose old vases to hold makeup brushes.
Flower vases can easily be used to store makeup brushes and similar items. The rubber bands could be used to create a texture on the vase or to do a strip of glitter. The possibilities are endless, so you can get really creative with them.
11. Make your own fun pillows.
Freshen up your bed for spring by creating your own accent pillows. The best part is that this project doesn’t require any sewing. Since canvas bags with cute graphics and sayings can be found anywhere, you shouldn’t have any trouble finding one that fits your personality and style.
