Want to brighten up your home for spring? You don’t need to give the rooms in your house a major facelift. Instead, try crafting a few new accessories that are both bright and beautiful to bring some cheer to dark corners and focal points. Not only are these projects easy, they are so beautiful your friends will think you bought these awesome accessories rather than crafting them yourself! Following are ten simple ways to update your home decor.

DIY Wine Tumbler Vase from I Don’t Know How She Does It
Spring flowers brighten up any space! Create several vases with a designer look from wine tumblers with the tutorial for a textured vase from I Don’t Know How She Does It!
DIY Clay Petal Vase from Centsational Girl
If you’re crafty with clay, use some lightweight stone clay to update an old, boring vase with petal flowers! You can go bold with a solid white finish, or paint the vase and flowers complimentary colors to match your existing decor. The tutorial can be found at Centsational Girl.
DIY Green and White Dresser from The Ridiculous Redhead
Update a boring, brown dresser by making it over in bright colors and patterns. This would look great in a bedroom or even in living room or dining room. Drawers don’t just have to be for clothes. They can also hold dvd’s or dishes and flatware! See how it was done at The Ridiculous Redhead.
DIY Hanging Book Display from Penny Carnival
For even more storage without comprising floor space, try crafting these fabric wall mounted bookshelves. Use bright colored fabric for spring and summer and change out the fabric for fall and winter. Or just switch it up whenever you want a fresh look! It’s great in practically any room. You can find the tutorial for this hanging book display at Penny Carnival.
