  • Flowers for spring may seem cliché, but there’s a reason you see floral designs year after year: you can’t shake a classic. Those first summer dresses, or bold bouquets in living room windows are the key to exciting a change of season. Get your DIY hats on and prepare for those sunny spring florals.

    1. Give new life to old products

    You don’t have to have a spring clean the minute March rolls around, but for those who want a change, why not add a new lease of life to something you already own? Faux flowers are a great way to update tired products; easy to make, and even easier on the eye, this DIY chandelier is the perfect way to bring in the new season.

    2. Invest in a statement wallpaper

    It may seem like a big job, but adding a new wallpaper can really transform a room, without needing to change anything else in it. You’ll only need to give up two days, even less if you opt for a feature wall, and the makeover will give you a shiny new look just in time for spring.

    3. Add some props to your floral display

    Forget everything you know about vases, you can display flowers however the heck you want! Faux flowers are less restrictive for creative displays, and mean your work of art can last longer than a week. By adding in props, you can add a personal twist to a typical bouquet, turning your hallway console into a work of art.

    4. Reinvent a basic buy

    Sometimes you just can’t find exactly what you want on the high street, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get it. Buy a basic product, and add your own touch – a lick of paint, a coloured bulb, or even dozens of faux flowers. From just 99p each, these bold flowers won’t break the bank, and will give you a look no one else can buy!

    5. Pay attention to detail

    Your spring DIY updates don’t have to be heart stopping; small touches to ordinary rooms can make the biggest difference. These decorative flowers bring sweet subtlety to this plain room, and are a cheaper (and temporary) alternative to wallpaper, so the minute you’ve had enough you can simply just redecorate again.

    6. Keep it simple with a beautiful bouquet

    There’s nothing wrong with the traditional, and sometimes all you need to inject a little spring is a glorious bouquet of flowers. The easiest DIY update ever!
