It’s not too soon to start thinking about sprucing up your outdoor space for spring. Especially in Texas, warm weather and sunny days are just around the corner! There are tons of fun DIY projects you can do to get ready for the season and many of them are kid-friendly to boot. Try out some of these ideas and get ready to see your backyard transformed from a dried-out winter gray to a blossoming green oasis!
Start an Herb Garden
It’s very easy to start an herb garden with just a small patch of soil and a few seedling plants. Having fresh herbs on hand will also be a true joy when you have to throw a meal together in a hurry. You’ll save big bucks over time as you eliminate the need to buy herbs at the store, which ultimately go bad in your fridge waiting for their next use.

Use Recycled Items to Create a Planter
If the weather isn’t quite warm enough yet, you can bring springtime indoors with small planters. As the plants outgrow their vessels, they can be replanted in your garden too. You can create fun and interesting-looking planters yourself with repurposed household items. This site has a whole bunch of creative ideas. (Photo Credit)
Make Your Own Seed Bombs
Wildflowers in the springtime are one of the most beautiful features of Texas. Making your own wildflower seed bombs is a fun way to add some excitement to your backyard (or, if you’re feeling adventurous, a random outdoor public space). Combine the ingredients listed on the site to make little seed balls that can be thrown into any patch of dirt and watch as they blossom. (Photo Credit)
Make Your Own Bird Feeder
One of the most vocal indicators of spring is the sound of birds chirping outside your window. You can be sure to attract those lovely songsters by placing bird feeders throughout your property. You can order a fancy expensive one from a catalog but they are actually quite simple and inexpensive to make yourself. Follow this link to see some recycled bird feeder ideas. (Photo Credit)
