Spruce up for Spring

I totally missed posting this on the 20th, you know the first day of Spring! But it’s never too late to get ready for spring!  One of the easiest ways to put up some quick color is a wreath! Yeah, a wreath, they aren’t just for Christmas anymore.

Purchasing one is beyond easy, especially when you can buy one online. But what’s the fun in that? Wreaths are super easy to make. All the supplies you’d need are at your favorite Arts and Crafts store. My personal favorite is Hobby Lobby. You can also find tons of helpful tutorials, like this Spring Baby Grass Wreath by Patty Schaffer.

 I've already bought a beautiful wreath for my home, but I think I'm going to have to try one of these DIY wreaths and make one for the office.

Another quick and easy way to spruce up is switch out any drab accents rugs you have for a rug that is bright and colorful!

I have Jellybean and Homefires rug in every room in my house, and I just love them! They stand up well to wear and tear and if they are looking a bit dirty I can toss them the washing machine. How easy is that?
