8 Easy Ways to Bring Spring Indoors

It’s springtime. The days are longer, the weather is warmer, and the flowers are starting to bloom. Get into the spirit of the season by bringing a touch of spring indoors. Here are easy ways you can satiate your spring fever while making your home look great!

  1. Decorate your front door

Welcome spring – and your visitors – with a cheery daffodil wreath. This pretty DIY wreath made with materials from a dollar store adds a bright and sunny touch to any entrance.

  1. Force tulip bulbs

Grow your own beautiful bouquet of tulips, no yard required.  Place tulip bulbs in a vase over glass beads, add water, and watch the flowers grow and bloom in your home.

  1. Add Color

Add splashes of springtime color throughout your home.  Decorate couches and chairs with inexpensive pillows, or make the pillows yourself.  Don’t sew? View this video to see how easy it is to create your own pillows using fabric and iron-on fabric tape. You can also accent your home with a new rug or lightweight throw blanket in soft pastel colors or prints.

  1. Spring clean

Spring is a time of renewal so now is the perfect time to reassess your home organization.  Studies show that a messy and disorganized home can increase stress.  Improve your mental health by getting your home in order.  Clean your windows and carpets, dust your furniture and fixtures, clear out the clutter, and store away your winter clothes.  Getting it all done can be a big chore but it will be well worth the effort!

  1. Freshen the air

Open the shades and windows and let in sunlight and fresh air.  You can also deodorize your home the natural way with this wonderful air freshener you can make yourself with just three simple ingredients. Breathe easy with the delicious scents of lemon, rosemary and vanilla.

  1. Change bedding

Your wardrobe changes with the seasons—why not change your bedding?  Have a more comfy sleep in the warmer weather by replacing your heavy quilts for lighter sheets and blankets.  Choose bedding in an entirely different color palette to give your space a fresh new look and feel.

  1. Get crafty with the kids

Keep the kids busy during those rainy April days and bring out their creativity with a colorful Paper Bag Butterfly craft.  This cute craft may also inspire children to learn about insects or perform a puppet show with their creation.

  1. Decorate with citrus

glass vase or apothecary jar filled with oranges, limes, or lemons is a simple and inexpensive way to bring natural beauty into your home.  Use as table centerpieces or place on a shelf or mantle.

Refresh and rejuvenate your indoor environment this spring with these easy ideas. Celebrate the season and enhance your mind, body and spirit!
