How to Make Spring Decorations Your Home Will Love
Spring is a great time to get rid of the wintery decorations and bring in some fresh new ones. Whether you’re looking for a new way to decorate your living room or want some new spring decor ideas for the front of your house, there are plenty of easy DIY projects out there that you can try!
One of the easiest ways to add a bit of spring decor to your home is by swapping out your heavy drapes and throws for lighter fabrics. Lighter shades like white, cream, and beige are ideal for bringing in the color and feeling of spring.
The next step is to add some flowers and other natural elements into your home’s decor. It’s a simple and inexpensive way to instantly update your space for the spring season.
1. Make your own wreath
Instead of grabbing store-bought spring wreaths, try making your own using old book pages or other decorative objects that you have around the house. You’ll have a gorgeous, one-of-a-kind spring decoration for your front door or other space in no time!
2. Repurpose an old funnel
A metal funnel can easily be turned into a chic spring wreath by filling it with water-soaked florist’s foam and a variety of pretty blooms. You can use tulips, lily-of-the-valley, white bleeding-hearts, viburnum or pussy willow in a range of soft spring colors to create an eye-catching display.
3. Paint terra-cotta pots
Budget-friendly terra-cotta pots are easy to turn into stylish spring centerpieces with a little spray paint and a few simple materials. Swirl blue and green spray paints in water, then dip pots before adding a few florals for a pretty, budget-friendly DIY project.
4. Create a rustic garden bench for your porch
An old milk can – preferably with a distressed look – is a great option for transforming into a rustic garden bench to display a number of colorful springtime items. It’s also a perfect place to sit and enjoy the beauty of nature.
5. Decorate a planter with tulips
Tulips are the unofficial flower of spring and they can be used in just about any container for an instant burst of color and a beautiful, warm feeling. Putting a tulip arrangement in a galvanized bucket is an especially fun way to celebrate the coming of spring on your porch.
6. Use a stuffed birdcage for a spring door décor
A vintage birdcage is a perfect place to nestle a collection of tulips or other pretty spring flowers. You can fill the birdcage with a variety of flowers and add ribbon to accentuate it.
7. Put a holographic vase to work
A holographic glass vase is super trendy right now, so you can use this inexpensive idea to add a pop of spring to your decor. You can create this simple project by painting a glass bottle in a bright springtime hue.
8. Embrace a trending DIY with decals
If you have a wall in your living room or bedroom that needs some spring decoration, consider adding a springtime-themed graphic. You can find decals in just about any design style.
