Here in New York, we’re enjoying an unusually warm February. And while it’s freaking me out (climate change is real), it’s also making me antsy for spring weather to officially arrive. I can’t wait for warmer weather all the time, more sunshine, blooming plants, and a generally more cheerful vibe all around. Until that happens, I have to make due with things that only remind me of spring – like pretty home decor pieces that brighten up any space. Since we all know decor can be crazy expensive, it’s time to turn to some DIY projects.
Even if you weren’t planning on getting involved with some serious spring cleaning this year, you should consider getting a few things for your bedroom that make it a more cheerful, bright place to be in. Not only will it look good, but it will also put you in a better mood. There are more ways to decorate for spring than to just spend money and time on flowers (although that’s always a great idea too!). If you’re into crafting, you’ll love the below DIY projects that are easy enough for beginners, but interesting enough for DIY gurus. Brighten up your space and get into the right frame of mind with these tutorials. Why not start now?!
