From dark wood and statement rugs to mermaidcore and Parisian interiors, Etsy has given us some pretty amazing home décor trends this spring. You don’t have to spend a fortune to welcome some of them into your home, and these three happen to be extremely DIY-friendly.

Paper Lightning

Paper lighting is one of Etsy’s biggest home décor trends this spring—and also the easiest to embrace. You can find countless tutorials for paper lamps on YouTube, for everything from simple paper lanterns to more complicated origami lamps, so find a design that you like and try making your own.


When it comes to DIY-friendly home décor items inspired by the mermaidcore craze—the world is your oyster! Anything with pearls and seashells will do, and you can use them to make picture frames and wind chimes, decorate candleholders and vases, and even make pearly jewelry and hair accessories.

Statement Rugs

“Rugs with personality” are another Etsy trend that you can embrace by flexing your own DIY skills. Punch needle rugs experienced a true boom on TikTok in recent years, and you’ll have to invest a lot of time and energy to make your own, but it will be worth it because you’ll get a unique custom rug.
