Every year like clockwork, I get the home improvement itch around mid-March. There’s something about the promise of spring that gets my creative juices flowing and puts me in the mood to decorate. I come from a family of DIY-ers, so I’ve always taken pride in seeing a project through from start to finish. Whether it’s re-finishing the deck or sprucing up the living room with a few new throw pillows, DIY home décor is an energizing and confidence-building experience I suggest everyone partake in this spring.
Even if you don’t know your way around a tool kit, DIY home décor doesn’t have to be a scary process. There are tons of simple ways to freshen up any room in your house. The key is to use the tools you have on hand. In this case, we mean your knitting needles! Knit home décor is a budget-friendly, creative way to accessorize your home with unique and personal touches. From classic dishcloth knitting patterns to brighten up your kitchen to cozy and welcoming knit afghan patterns, there’s a way to refresh every room in your house with an easy knitting project.
