The spring season is often associated with new beginnings, so there’s no better time than the present to prepare your home for a rebirth. Sprucing up your home doesn’t have to be a chore—in fact, you can make it fun by getting the whole family involved! Try these fun family DIY projects for spring:
Make Decorative Pillows
You don’t need to buy new furniture to completely change the look of your living room—all it takes is a few decorative pillows. The first step to making a decorative pillow is choosing a fabric that matches the rest of your décor. Then, cut two identical squares from the fabric and lay them on top of each other, matching up the edges. Sew along three of the four sides of the fabric, but leave the fourth open so you can fill it with stuffing. After putting the stuffing inside, sew along the remaining edge to complete your new decorative pillow.
If you want to push it a little further, you can buy a white all cotton pillowcase, different stencils and fabric paint. Choose a stencil that you find fun to color, use your imagination and just paint! Painting nice pillows has never been easier!
Create Wall Art
Breathe life into every room in your home with DIY wall art. There are countless different ways to create custom wall art for your home, so choose something that sounds like a fun project for your family. For example, if your kids love painting, buy a blank canvas and let them create a masterpiece to hang in your home. You can also create a metallic masterpiece by decorating a blank canvas with silver and gold thumbtacks. You can arrange the thumbtacks in any shape or pattern that you’d like, so encourage your family to flex their creative muscles to create something beautiful for your home.
Host A Painting Party
Don’t hire a professional to spruce up the walls in your home—host a painting party for the whole family instead. Kids love playing with paint, so it shouldn’t be too hard to convince them to help you with this DIY project. If you want to make it even more exciting, consider using wall stencils instead of painting the walls a solid color. Stenciling is an inexpensive and easy way to create the look of wallpaper, and it gives you an opportunity to customize your interior walls. Plus, everyone in the family will enjoy picking out and creating beautiful designs. Don’t forget to reward everyone by taking them out for pizza or ice cream while the paint dries!
Transform Thrift Shop Items
Take a trip to a local thrift shop to find inexpensive items that could be used as accent pieces around your home. Look for figurines, Christmas ornaments, boxes, trays, and other knick-knacks that could fit somewhere in your home. These items may look outdated and out-of-place now, but you can make them look modern and stylish simply by painting them white or black. Place these newly painted items on bookcase shelves, mantels, and tables to add character to the inside of your home.
Finishing each of these DIY projects is a great way to give your home a fresh start for the spring. But, that’s not the only benefit of tackling these DIY projects. Working on these projects as a family will also ensure you get to spend plenty of quality time with your loved ones. Family time anda fresh look for your home—what a perfect way to spring into the spring season!
