5 DIY Decor Ideas for Spring 2014

The changing of a season is a great time to freshen up your décor. Spring signifies the blooming of flowers, the return of grass and leaves, and the overall greening of the earth. It's a joyous time, indeed! 

From adding a little light to crafting your seasonal theme, here are five DIY décor ideas for Spring 2014 and the products to make them happen.

1. Go Green with Solar Powered Mason Jar Lights

We love these Solar Powered Mason Jar Lids! Great for adding a little light come the spring and summer months, they are the perfect accent and night light. Not to mention they are wonderful décor accessories!

As we’ll show you, it’s easy to get creative with the jar too by using our Quilted Mason Jars or Antique-inspired Green Jars:

2. Grow A Little Something

For the green thumb out there, indoor planters are great for displaying in the windowsill or patio garden. Add a chicken wire cloche for that rustic look!

5. Add Globe String Lights to your Patio Umbrella & Outdoor Spaces

As the days begin to get warmer, the temptation to have a BBQ will become insatiable. Umbrella lights aren’t just for restaurants and cafés; they’re great for your home’s patio umbrellas as well. Adding a little light can brighten those spring nights when the sun goes to bed before you do. Break out the grill and be the host!
