Spring craft ideas to brighten up a home

March 15, 2019

When spring arrives, that familiar feeling of rebirth and warmth tends to permeate everything. However, many homeowners don't follow through with the decor around the house.

With that in mind, there are plenty of ways to make a home feel just a bit brighter with some fun crafting projects anyone in the family can complete.

For instance, getting some fresh flowers and making hangable decorations with them, or even making your own planters, can go a long way toward ensuring various parts of your home have that spring feel, according to Country Living. You can even bring the brightness to the kitchen or bathroom with DIY soap dispensers made from Mason jars or other containers that can be painted or dyed to your liking.

And if you want to help support a healthy habitat around your home as well, you can also make bird feeders that ensure those feathered friends stop by on a regular basis.

Another great outdoor crafting idea that anyone from ages 4 to 94 can make is a decorative wind chime, which will likely get a lot of use in the spring, according to The Spruce. You can also get a blank doormat and have the kids decorate it to their liking so you can welcome guests with the spirit of the season.

Finally, making items for the dining room table, such as hand-painted coasters or table runners, could also help brighten up a family space.

Of course, you should always try to plan your family DIY crafting around your kids' talents or interests so they can make something beautiful and have fun doing it.
