Now that spring has finally decided to arrive and the sun is shining, it’s time to bring a little bit of change into your home, as well. Fortunately, with these tips, swapping the old for the new won’t break the bank.

Teacup Flower Garden

This is a great way to bring some flowers into your home for spring without sacrificing any space. You can use as many or as few teacups as you want and even turn it into an herb garden in your kitchen!

Step 1: Select your teacups – if you don’t have any laying around the house, just head to your local dollar store and pick out your favorites

Step 2: Using a porcelain or ceramic drill bit, drill a hole in the bottom of your teacup. It’s best to do this either on a workbench or put a piece of scrap wood underneath the teacup.

Be sure to continuously wet the area you’re drilling either with a wet washcloth or a squirt bottle (this keeps the teacup from cracking)

Step 3: Fill your teacup with soil and plant your herb or flower!

Voila! Your very own teacup planter!

Framed Book Page

Adding your favorite book quote to a frame is an incredible way to keep your guests loving your decorations without spending too much or putting in a ton of work.

Step 1: Go to

Step 2: Select “design” and put in your dimensions (I recommend 1500 x 2000)

Step 3: Select “texture” and the aged paper effect – press “apply”

Step 4: Add your text – I like to use the font Roman Antique

Step 5: Once you’re satisfied with your design, just click save!

Now you’re ready to pick out any frame you’d like and add a seasonal touch to your walls.

Yarn Wrapped Bottles

These bottles seem like such a simple fix you’ll be shocked you didn’t think of it before. All you need is a few bottles, scissors, a hot glue gun, and whatever color twine you’d like.

Make a small knot around the top of your bottle and wrap the twine around your bottle until you reach the bottom, making sure it’s wrapped tightly. At the bottom of the bottle, use your hot glue gun to glue the twine in place.
