Today, I want to share with you 13 quick and easy spring diy projects you can start doing right now to welcome a season of hope and renewal into your home!
As I shared with you guys last week, we definitely have a huge case of Spring Fever! While we completely enjoyed and I dare say savored the quiet reflective nature of winter, it’s been so much fun planning new adventures, getting our hands in the dirt again and changing out winter décor for spring décor.
I don’t know about you guys but it is crazy easy to go overboard with all sorts of fabulous spring decorating ideas, you know? I literally want to buy all the bunnies, flowering branches and pastel colored eggs I see!
We don’t have a lot of storage space for that kind of stuff though, so I have promised myself I would shop our home first and then hit the stores for items that could be used over multiple seasons. I tell ya, trying to balance spring cleaning tasks with spring decorating inspiration is an art he he 😊
Here’s a peek at a few of our favorite spring projects you can start doing or making now that will help usher in a season of hope and renewal into your home…
Put a New Wreath on the Front Door – Allow your front door to welcome you home with a cheery spring wreath. You can make one or buy one whatever works best for your schedule. Add a new doormat and your good to go. It may seem like a small thing but you probably walk through your front door multiple times a day so make your entry and exit special. You can see all the details of how we created this floral door basket here.
DIY a Dutch Inspired Tulip Crate – We made this for my mom as a gift a few years ago and she still loves it! It’s one of those pieces that can be used in multiple spots of your home inside or out on the porches or patio. You can find out how to make your own Dutch inspired tulip crate here.
Make a Flower Market Sign – We are all kinds of obsessed with plants and flowers! Creating a vintage inspired sign like this can be used in multiple space inside your home or use to decorate your “she shed.” You can find all the details about our flower market sign here.
Plant Seeds for a Vegetable Garden, Container Garden or Create a Succulent Centerpiece – There is nothing more life giving than having plants or flowers in your home. While it might not be feasible to have a full-blown vegetable garden on the terrace of your townhouse, there’s definitely a way to bring in some plant life with pots, herbs, grocery store flowers, faux plants or a simple centerpiece for your table. You can see how we created this succulent centerpiece here.
Give an Old Piece of Furniture New Life – Have you been thinking, “I really should paint that _________ (fill in the blank)” If so, what are you waiting for? If there’s something around your house you’ve been wanting to paint (barring anything that would change the value of the piece if it were painted) do your research, pick a paint color and get started. Paint really is a budget friendly way to give an old piece of furniture new life. You can find all sorts of tips and tricks for painting furniture from some of our favorite bloggers here.
Spring Clean Your House – When’s the last time you’ve cleaned your baseboards, fans, blinds or vents? It’s been too long for us too. Spring cleaning the house feels like a rite of passage. Gather together your cleaning supplies and make a list of all of the spaces that need a good scrubbing. Deep cleaning now will ease the guilt when you want to spend the day at the beach this summer 😊 Check out this post to find out how we upholstered this ottoman ourselves.
Change Out Your Pillows and Accessories – I’m not talking about redecorating your whole house here, I’m talking about little things you can do to spruce up your home. Adding spring touches around the house can be as easy as changing out your faux fur pillows for floral ones, adding flowers to your favorite spaces, incorporating spring colors throughout your home or even hanging a fresh towel in your kitchen.
Clean Out Your Closets – Granted, cleaning out your closets may feel like a monumental task but it feels so good when you’re finished! Starting small with your linen closets, your pantry, or the closets in your bedrooms will help you to feel more confident when you’re taking on the bigger projects on your Home Goals List. Our linen closet was a total wreck before we started implementing this strategy.
Create a Topiary for Your Kitchen – We recently created this faux herb topiary for the kitchen at Loblolly Manor and we’ve been obsessed ever since. I could seriously put these all over the house and it’s definitely one of those projects that can be used for multiple seasons.
Use a Vintage Sheet as a Tablecloth – We are constantly on the hunt for vintage sheets but sometimes we fall in love with one that’s a smaller size than our beds. When that happens, we use the sheets for tablecloths or to help add color to the front porch. Look for vintage sheets at your local thrift store to help keep spring decorating costs down. You can see how we created a vintage inspired Easter tablescape here.
Craft Jadeite Inspired Cupcake Stands – We use these jadeite inspired cupcake stands all the time! They’re a great size for cupcakes and mini bunt cakes plus, you can also use them with cloches too.
Make Your Own Robin Eggs – Have the birds been singing like crazy in your yard? Ours too! We love the soft subtle blue of Robin eggs because you can use them to decorate with so many different styles from farmhouse to traditional. These took minutes to make so be sure to find all the details here.
Start Planning Spring Home Projects Now – I know it seems like everything happens in an hour on tv but honestly you guys, home projects usually take a good bit of prior planning. Spring is a great time to cuddle up with a new decorating book or a magazine and dream about the projects you want to create this season. We transformed this room last spring and it’s still one of our favorite spaces.
We are seriously so happy spring is on the way and I know so many of you are as well! I know it’s still technically February but now is a great time to start creating spring projects that will help usher in a season of hope and renewal into your home.
Do you have any quick or easy projects you’re excited to tackle this spring? We’d love to hear about them in the comments section below so we can try them too!
See you guys back here tomorrow. We started decluttering our magazines last week (one of us has a real problem 😊 ) and we’ll share how we tamed the chaos. Until next time, I’ll see you on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest.
