Spring has arrived and it’s time to stylize your home - inside and out! Step into spring with these 5 simple tips to decorate your home and yard space.
1. Turn old boots into outdoor flower decor
Do you have an old pair of rain boots you no longer use? Don’t throw them away just yet! Add some flair to your outside fence, front porch, or back patio with flower boot decor.
Create your flower boot in 3 simple steps:
- Drill holes in bottom of boot
- Add soil to boot and plant flowers
- Hang the boot on a fence with a nail, or simply lay the boot sole-down on the ground
2. Flowerpot Repaint
Are your flowerpots looking a little dull? Revitalize the look of your flowerpots by adding some fresh color. Paint your flowerpots with bright and vibrant spring colors: blues, greens, oranges, yellows and pinks. Be creative!
Fresh flowers always look great around the home – inside and outside.
3. Lemon and Lime Decor
Lemons and limes can be used to create a variety of simple decor elements in your home. Not to mention, they are relatively inexpensive, smell great and can add a nice touch of yellow and green to your home.
