Spring is almost here, and decorating for the season is always a fun and exciting activity. It’s even better when you can roll up your sleeves and put your creativity to good use! We’ve got some refreshing Do-It-Yourself (DIY) projects that are easy, affordable, and ideal for making your Shea home bloom this season. Read on to learn more.
Greet Guests With a Touch of Spring
An easy way to bring spring to your front door is with a floral wreath. All you need to do is form wire into your desired shape—whether it’s a traditional circle or an egg or bunny shape. Next, glue garland all around it. Add flowers, dried or faux, as well as felt butterflies, bees, birds, or other favorite spring characters, and you’ll have a beautiful piece that will delight anyone who comes to your home.
Say Hello to The Birds
Nothing beats waking up to the sweet chirping of songbirds, so why not welcome feathered friends this season with a feeder? Head to your local craft store and pick out a wooden birdhouse that you can decorate to fit your unique tastes, whether that means painting it a pastel color or adding flowers and glitter. After decorating it, fill it with birdseed and hang it on a branch, set it on your windowsill, or use a wooden post to display it. The birds that come to visit will surely appreciate your thoughtfulness in providing them with a quick snack.
Spruce Up Your Tables
Make any space feel fresh and vibrant with a beautiful spring centerpiece. All you have to do is find your favorite flowers—the more colorful, the better—and fill up a vase, watering can, or even a rustic wooden crate. Flowers look especially lovely as part of a spring tablescape in your Shea gourmet kitchen. When you invite friends over for a quick bite to eat, your floral arrangement is sure to catch their attention and win their admiration!
Decorate Wooden Letters for a Unique Look
Your home should showcase your personality, and spring is the perfect time to highlight your creative side! A quick and easy way to bring a unique touch to any space is to use wooden letters covered in flowers, glitter, and soft colors, as decorative objects. We recommend trying this project in one of the spacious great rooms Shea is known for. The large walls are perfect for showcasing your work and displaying festive phrases—whether that’s “Home Sweet Home,” “Welcome Spring,” or your family’s name.
Make a Mini Greenhouse
Building a mini greenhouse is a fun and easy project for spring. All you need are a couple of small potted plants, picture frames, and a hot glue gun. Use the frames and glue to construct a little glass house. Then, place the plants inside the house and find a spot to display it. Pro Tip: We recommend the window sill so that the sun can do its work. Don’t forget to check on the plants every morning, and as they grow and thrive, you’ll definitely feel a sense of joy and pride!
