It’s starting to look like we’ll still be hanging out at home for most of the spring, so I wanted to gather some fun craft ideas that you might actually really like. I really try to avoid Pinterest fails, since I’ve spent a lot of time and money in the past trying to DIY something that I should’ve just bought.
These DIYs are great for yourself or to make as a gift for someone special. Now is a great time to show appreciation for the people in your life. Most of these would cost you $20 or less to make as well!
January is always a hard transition for your home décor. Its time to put away all of the holiday festivity, but it also really doesn’t feel like spring. I like to use this transition time to reduce clutter and brighten everything up a little bit.
It feels so good just to empty out your rooms and put away all of that holiday décor. I sort of like starting with a really blank slate in each room, and then deciding where to go from there. Since I’m trying to be smart about spending this year, I really tried to work with pieces that I already had, and just styled them in new combinations.
My mood for April is trying to escape the outside world and appreciate the little things. Lately, I’ve felt bombarded by the news and uncertain about the future. When will things be back to normal?
One goal for this month is to make Easter really special with my family. Even though it might not be a “normal” Easter, we can still make it a special day. I’m also looking forward to summer weather and summer fashion! Here are some of the pretty things I’m loving this month:
This year really hasn’t been the spring we expected. I’m guessing you have been spending a lot of time at home and trying to be productive when you can! This season, you might not have the extra cash or ability to shop for new decor. If you would like to still decorate with what you have, I have created some pretty spring printables that you can DIY at home!
I love putting these in a pretty picture frame or sticking on your fridge. Click the download links for the high res images and be sure not to scale when you go to print them!
Spring is always really slow to start in Minnesota, so I appreciate when the weather finally is warm enough to start wearing spring outfits. After wearing sweaters and boots for 6 months, its so nice to finally pull out short sleeves and dresses!
One style trend that I have been loving lately is the all white look. It seems like there are endless fashion “rules” about wearing white– but when your outfit is as polished as the looks below, no one will be able to say a thing!
Just be careful with your coffee while wearing these looks.
Earlier this week, I wrote about how I love refreshing my space for the new year. It’s a little sad to take all of the holiday decorations down, but I also love when my house feels so clean and open again! Although I don’t go into full spring decor, I do love bringing in lighter colors and a little bit of greenery to brighten everything up.
In order to balance out the more spring-forward pieces, I try to incorporate a lot white as a neutral. I also still love the look of terra-cotta and might add a few more pieces once my January spending freeze is over!
Keep reading to see how I have refreshed my space!
