18 Quick & Easy Spring DIY Projects
Today, I want to share with you 18 quick & easy spring diy projects you can start doing now to welcome a season of hope and renewal into your home.
I can hardly believe the difference a week makes you guys!
How are you holding up with everything?
When I first heard about the Coronavirus-COVID 19, I naively thought we would take a similar stance to what we take during hurricane season.
We’re used to schools, churches, and businesses closing, having to work from home, and empty shelves while shopping for necessities in crowded stores during an active season.
But the sense of panic, social distancing and self-isolation brought about by the Coronavirus COVID-19 makes everything feel completely different.
As we all continue to do our part in helping to stop the spread of the virus, I’ve never been more thankful for the shelter and comfort our home provides during uncertain times.
And I know so many of you feel the same way.
So, while we’re adjusting to a “new normal” I thought I would share 18 quick & easy spring diy projects to help creating a cozy Spring home while self-quarantining a bit easier.
Here’s a peek at a few of our favorites…

Put a New Wreath or Create a Flower Basket for 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 Spring Front Door Floral Basket here.
DIY Dutch Tulip Crate
We made this for my Mom as a gift and she 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.

Create a Topiary for Your Kitchen
We 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.
It’s definitely one of those projects that can be used for multiple seasons.
Decoupage Easter Eggs
Full disclosure, this quick & easy spring diy project can definitely be messy but the outcome is totally worth it.
What we love most about these decoupage Easter eggs is that they can easily be customized depending on your home decor, they don’t take very long to make and you need only need a few materials to complete them.
Depending on the age of your littles, it might be something they’ll want to help with too!
Make Spring Bunny Art
If you’re anything like us, you likely have some scrap fabric hanging out in your sewing bins or closet.
Creating vintage inspired Spring art like the one we use in our kitchen takes just a few basic supplies. And bonus, it can be used in multiple spaces in your home.

Create a Simple Spring Centerpiece
There is nothing more life giving than having plants or flowers in your home.
While it might not be feasible to have lots of fresh florals delivered to your home right now, 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 made this simple Spring centerpiece here.
DIY Moss Placemats
Due to the virus our Easter plans are up in the air. That said, we’re still making a concerted effort to “keep calm and carry on” and that goes for our Spring tablescapes and craft projects too.
I know we’ll be able to use these moss placemats throughout the year. Honestly, they’re so simple to make they almost don’t even need a tutorial.

Dress Up a Vintage Basket for Spring
As with the scraps of fabric, you likely have a vintage basket laying around somewhere. Consider how you can dress it up with flowers, greenery, Easter eggs and a bunny.
This Easter Basket Centerpiece took just minutes to make and was super easy to use inside on the breakfast nook and outside on the front porch.
Make Your Own Antique Inspired Crock
We’re constantly on the hunt for vintage and antique treasures and we love pieces that are utilitarian too. After searching for affordable antique crocks and coming up empty handed, we decided to create our own.
Find out all the details for how to create crock inspired paint cans here.
Create a European Farmhouse Style
While this DIY European Farmhouse Style Cake Stand is all decorated for Spring, cake stands are something you’ll be able to use throughout the year.
The top and base for this cake stand were both thrifted finds and we used paint we already had on hand which made it a budget friendly Spring project too!
Make Your Own Bird Eggs
Have the birds been singing like crazy in your yard? Ours too!
We love the soft subtle shades of bird eggs because you can use them to decorate with so many different styles from farmhouse to traditional.
These DIY Speckle Eggs took minutes to make and the technique is super easy to follow too.
Customize a DIY Bird Nest
Given the birds have been singing at our house for weeks now, we’re already on the lookout for new nests and doing our best to promote healthy habitats too.
In honor of all the different birds that spend time on our property, we created these DIY Bird Nests. They’re another quick & easy spring diy projects you can make in no time!
Craft Vintage Monogrammed No Sew Pillow
I don’t know about you but when it comes to craft projects, I love those that are quick and easy.
These vintage monogrammed no sew pillows were made with readily available supplies and we’re constantly moving them from the bedroom, to the entry to the living room and even the breakfast nook too.
They’re that versatile!
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 in this post, Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint Dresser Makeover.
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 and is especially needed this time of year.
So, 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 ?
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, 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.
Organize Your Pantry
I can honestly say, our pantry is consistently one of THE most organized spaces in our home. And it’s been that way for years now.
It took an initial investment in baskets, clear container and to create a pet feeding station but in our opinion the investment continues to pay off year after year.
You can find our popular post, The Easiest Way to Organize Your Pantry & Refrigerator here.
Plan Home Decor Projects
I know it might be hard to consider doing any large home improvement projects with the way the economy is up one day and down the next.
That said, consider how you can start tackling smaller projects around your home from painting furniture to giving your rooms a fresh look with a new rug, artwork, pillows or curtains.
Honestly most home projects usually take a good bit of prior planning and saving.
So, while you’re waiting for the right time, cuddle up with a new decorating book or a magazine and dream about the projects you want to create this season.
I know so many of us were excited to welcome Spring into our homes this year. And while it’s not the way we had planned, there are still things we can do to enjoy the season right in our own homes.
After all, Spring is still the season of hope and renewal.
We hope these 18 quick & easy Spring DIY projects have helped to inspire you to continue to celebrate Spring at home this year.

There are a lot of great ideas on this list CoCo. Thank you for putting it all together. I must admit I’ve been feeling a bit unmotivated lately but this makes me realize there are all sorts of projects I can do. Thanks, Sarah
There are so many people telling me they feel unmotivated right now! I’ve been working on a video on Wednesday for motivation so stayed tuned. As for spring decorating, just take it one step at a time and one project at a time and you’ll have your house ready in no time! Hugs, CoCo
Hey CoCo – well…I guess we don’t need to write our post anymore LOL! You have it all covered 🙂 We truly love all of your Spring projects and ideas for the season! Can’t wait to see what you do next!
Thanks so much ladies! Hugs, CoCo
Excited to try some of these projects Coco especially the eggs and the flower sign, Brianna
I love both of those project, Brianna! Let me know how they go. I love to see pictures of what you guys do. Hugs, CoCo
These are great decor ideas. thanks for sharing!
Thanks so much!
I love all your ideas but I have to tell you that I squealed when I saw the dresser makeover — I JUST BOUGHT THAT SAME DRESSER! I had scoped it out at a thrift store for three weeks before I bit the bullet and bought it. Honestly, I was afraid that with the virus ramping up the stores would close so I ran out and bought it! Unfortunately I was right and we have been in Stay at Home mode in Illinois for days now and all non-essential businesses have been closed. I am SO glad I bought it and can’t wait to paint it! Question, though — did you have trouble with the top? Mine is laminate and it’s always a bear to paint laminate:( So glad to see that great minds think alike! xo Kathleen
It’s so cool we’re going to be twinsies, Kathleen! I love this dresser so much and I’m constantly on the lookout for another one. It’s a good thing you scooped it up when you did! I did not have a problem when I painted the dresser top with milk paint (as you see in the photo I shared) because I had already previously painted it a few years before with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint so it had a solid foundation. That said, you might consider sanding the top a bit to give it some tooth before you paint it. I know laminate tops can definitely be slick and paint does not always stick well to those surfaces. Can’t wait to see how your dresser turns out! Hugs, CoCo
What an awesome collection of ideas! So much inspiration in one spot. I’ve pinned this for future reference!
Thanks so much for joining the Grace at Home party at Imparting Grace. I’m featuring you this week!
Aww thank you so much, Richella! I really appreciate it. The last few weeks have been totally bananas so this is such a sweet treat. Hugs and thank yous, CoCo
