HOW TO MAKE YOUR HOUSE FEEL LIKE SPRING THIS WEEKEND
Looking for easy ideas for decorating your home for spring? Got an hour or two this weekend? Here are some of my favorite spring decorating projects that use simple things, take no time at all and are most definitely fun and pretty.
Yep, it is true….
It is definitely so….
The calendar says so….
And so does the weather forecast….
Spring has arrived! She is a bit shy, hides her pretty self behind the clouds from time to time, but nonetheless the birds are chirping, nests are being built, blossoms are blooming and the sun is gaining ground.
Ah my favorite time of year has arrived. Time to open up the windows, blow the cobwebs out, contemplate a spring cleaning spree but drink tea outside in the garden instead.
Spring has sprung and so that time old itch to change up the decor inside is back.
If you know the feeling here are some wonderful spring decor ideas for you to be inspired by.
Tulip Spring mantel
This is such an easy but beautiful idea for how to decorate your mantel for spring. Gather up some clear glass bottles, add one or two tulips to each of them. Line them all up in a row. Place a large mirror behind it all, and call it a day!
See here how this spring mantel looks from different angles.
Twig Candle Holder
If you are doing yard work in spring, this is the perfect project to use some of the waste nature has left behind. This time of year my garden is full of fallen twigs and branches from the winter’s storms. I’ll also be doing some clipping and pruning on my bigger bushes.
All those twigs can be used to make these pretty, rustic candle holders that look perfect on a side table in your spring living room decor.
DIY Leave Wreath
All you need for this pretty wreath is a wire ring and some freshly cut green leaves.
I used laurel leaves, you might have fresh leaves from a magnolia tree. Boxwood would work too. Any kind of fresh, green leaves that don’t dry out too quickly would work.
Find this DIY leaf wreath here and find out where I scavenged my metal ring from….
Hanging Glass Bottle Vases
Oh this little spring flowers decor is so easy and so much fun.
Attach a ring to some small bottles, tie them all to a string and hang your flower decor on a wall or over a door.
Easter Basket Coffee Table Arrangement
This easter basket centerpiece is so easy to make. It uses every day elements and no intricate design or hard to do arranging.
I show you how to make a centerpiece like this in minutes and when you don’t have all the exact same items I give you all kinds of ideas for alternatives that will give you the same effect.
Rainbow Colored Glass Jars
In the mood for a fun craft that is also a little messy? These rainbow colored glass jars are so much fun to make.
Gather up some mason jars, get food coloring and ModPodge together and make some pretty jars in your favorite colors that match your spring decor.
Your future self will thank you if you do this little project. Years ago I painted some simple terracotta pots white, cut out some vinyl numbers and stuck them on. Those numbered little pots went all over the house and came out nearly every season one way or another. They were so easy and fun to decorate with.
DIY Pom Pom Blanket
For those days and nights when spring gets a bit chilly….
Make a light throw blanket with pom poms and felt crosses. The base is a simple fleece blanket that is nothing more than a piece of cut fabric.
Chicken Wire Cloche
Give your simple spring bulbs some extra pizzazz by placing them under a homemade cloche. Everything looks better when it is shown off underneath a cloche. And I love the opposition of the rustic wire and the sweet flowers.
This chicken wire cloche is so much easier to make than you might think.
Watering Can Tulip Arrangement
If you like Farmhouse style decor, you will love this quick and easy spring decor idea. A simple galvanized watering can is used as a vase for some vibrant red tulips.
I think this particular watering can is from Ikea but several years ago. You can use any kind of watering can for this idea. If the opening is too wide simply place a smaller vase inside or use some floral foam or a rolled up bunch of chicken wire to hold the stems in place.
Spring Wreath for Front Door
How about an idea for how to decorate your front door for spring?
Make this super easy spring wreath in minutes. It’s a little bit real and a little bit faux and it only takes so little time to make a wreath like this.
Repurposed Soda Cans Vases
How about a little reuse – recycle and repurpose spring decorating idea!
Next time you go grocery shopping keep an extra lookout for pretty packaging and repurpose that in your spring decor.
These colorful soda cans with cherry blossoms are the perfect vase for some pretty spring flowers.
Pretty Painted Pots
Nothing makes your home feel more like spring than bringing in some pretty colorful flowers. These cheerful little pansies got some extra flair by pairing them with vibrantly painted terracotta pots.
Unique Tulip Arrangement
How fun is this original and unique tulip arrangement!? Tulips are so much fun and the lend themselves to some pretty outrageous floral arranging.
I think they look so pretty ‘stuffed’ in a vase like this. And I think the two tulips that are trying to escape by growing out of the vase are just hilarious.
Decorate your Window Sill for Spring
When decorating your living room for spring, don’t forget about your window sills. Sometimes those are harder to decorate but giving them some extra attention can have a big impact on a room.
I was lucky to have this brick makers crate. It is long and narrow and perfect for some pretty window sill spring decor.
Unexpected Spring Decor – Bring in the Disco Ball
One of my favorite all time spring mantels was the one where I brought out the disco ball.
I paired the glitter ball with delicate apple blossoms and a bit of coastal flair. It came together beautifully.
Blue and White China and Flowering Bulbs
The fresh colors of blue and white go so well together with the freshness of spring bulbs.
Use a variation of different every day china bowls and plant some spring bulbs in them. Cover the soil with some moss and you have the prettiest little spring decor.
