Few things are as fulfilling as pulling off a great DIY project. Spring is the perfect time for home sellers to focus on DIY projects they’ve been putting off. It is the beginning of the buying season when many buyers are looking to acquire homes. Many spring DIY projects are easy to carry out and can help homeowners make the most of their interiors and exteriors. If your sellers are short on ideas, here are a few you can recommend.
Make Flower Vases, Planters or Window BoxesFlowers make a home look beautiful and well-cared for. They add color and fragrance and create a homely atmosphere. If your sellers are on a tight budget, advise them to make flower vases instead of buying. They can line up 9 vintage milk bottles of the same size in rows of three and wrap gardener’s twine around the set. The blooming display can be completed with two or three stems in each container.
Upgrade Outdoor DecksYour sellers can transform their decks into outdoor living spaces. They can frame the areas with plants, vines, bushes, annuals, and grasses. These set the scene for lavish on-deck plant displays and make a great first impression on buyers. Sellers can also add water features to create luxurious and peaceful atmospheres.
Grow Herb Gardens IndoorsNothing feels as good as seeing new plants poke out of the earth to signal the coming of spring. Even if the ground is still frozen, sellers can recreate the feeling by planting indoor herb gardens. They can pot some cuttings of thyme, basil, rosemary, and other herbs and place them in their kitchen windows. Once the ground thaws, they can transplant their little gardens outdoors.
Use Decor to Brighten Areas of your HomeSpring is the perfect time to bring some greenery indoors. Adorning pillar candles with blades of grass emphasizes a plant that is rarely appreciated up close. It also unifies a variety of candles. This project requires 3 items:
- Blades of grass (wheatgrass can be used)
- Light-colored candles
- All-purpose glue stick (nonflammable)
