29 of the Very Best DIY Spring Decor Ideas Ever!

Spring has sprung! It is my favorite time of year. New life is all around: flowers, buds on trees, and baby birds in the sky! I love how fresh and invigorated spring makes me feel. Spring also makes me want to freshen up my home decor.

I did a little scouting around on the net for some inspiration. Let me tell you: there is seriously some great stuff out there! Now,I am excited to share my favorites that I found!

Let’s get our spring decor on! Wahoo. Make sure to let me know which one is your favorite!

First up we have the beautiful hanging flower garland. This just screams spring! I love the boho feel its got going on too! Love the great ideas I find at Mrs. Meyer’s blog!

We all know that the farmhouse trend is the new ‘it’ thing. Well, what about when we incorporate it into spring decor like Paisley & Pugs? Talk about awesomeness. This little herb garden perfect for your kitchen or back patio is beautiful and fully functional. I love decor that does double duty!

I am a sucker for a good wreath. Man, do I ever love this wreath that is totally thinking outside the box. OK, OK, maybe this Spring Picture Frame Wreath from Recreated Designs is technically a box! 🙂

This idea just blew my mind. It would be great on a deck or porch or even in the house! The complete tutorial for the Arrow Vertical Succulent Planter is available at Her Tool Belt.

I love this whimsical and Spring Inspired Dream catcher. I really think that I am going to be making one of these in the near future for my little beauty’s bedroom! And making one couldn’t be easier, with the video tutorial at May Arts.

Who doesn’t need to spice up their deck or patio? This awesome DIY ladder shelf from Making It In the Mountains is perfect for just that! It could be a nice addition indoors, too!

 

I love amazing bloggers who have a knack for incorporating nature into their decor. These beautiful zinnias from A Fanciful Twist are painted pine cones! Seriously, how clever is that?! They would look great in a bowl on a table as a bright pop of color. Perfect to incorporate some whimsical spring into your home.

Mason jars seem to be all the rage right now. I love how simple these are and that they have an awesome rustic flair. I see something like these Mason Jar Wall Sconces from Shelterness making a debut into our downstairs bathroom or kitchen very soon!

Another awesome trend that I love is the re-claimed wood trend. Shanty 2 Chic did an amazing job up cycling some glass soda bottles and reclaimed wood to make an amazing vase centerpiece. The simplicity and rustic-ness of this vase is absolutely beautiful! Oh yeah, double score, total project cost is only 10 bucks, too!

 

How about this idea!? It takes just a few minutes to print up some labels. They can easily be affixed to recycled bottles, resulting in instant vases! Add a few flowers, and say hello to a little pop of spring! The free Spring Apothecary Labels are available for download at Blesser House.

 

Another great way to incorporate some spring into your home is to embellish curtains with bright spring flowers. You can check out all the details on how to do it over at Design Love Fest!

Do you have an old pallet lying around? This is another one of those awesome reclaimed wood projects. I JUST LOVE THEM! Salt and Life blog will show you just how to turn that pallet into a beautiful rustic planter box.

 

I love this DIY Hanging Floral Chandelier from Honestly WTF.  P.S. I love the name of their blog, too. 🙂 I think it’s honestly AH-MAZ-ING! There are so many places in your home that this would fit perfect. A bedroom, a dining nook. The possibilities are endless! Use real flowers for a fresh pop in your home, or fake ones for your chandelier to last longer!

A fun afternoon project that lets you add the perfect pop of color virtually anywhere in your house!  It is amazing how some paper can transform into these amazing rainbow dahlias. There are some sheer paper craft creating geniuses over at Craftaholics Anonymous for sure!

 

Does your couch need a pop of color? Did you know that it is possible to paint with watercolors on fabric? And even better yet, turn them into pillows? Well, there is a great tutorial guest post by Tidbits on Ella Claire Inspired about just how to do that! Look out couch, here come some awesome spring watercolor pillows!

 

Love tulips? Looking for a wreath that screams spring? Check out this tutorial for the Spring Tulip Wreath from Confessions of a Plate Addict.

I am so in love with nautical decor right now! I feel it is summery and so fun. This is a great tutorial to whip up some coasters or trivets with just rope! How awesome. Check it out over at Knitted Patterns.Com

 

I think a fun rustic wall hanging that adds a pop of color is so perfect for spring. I love this idea too, because it is an up-cycle. The clever crafting genius over at Craftaholics Anonymous used egg cartons!

 

Here is another great up-cycle from Frumpy Bumpkin over at .HomeTalk Transforming old salt and pepper shakers (or dollar store ones) into bud vases. This seriously is so chic and just screams SPRING!

 

Maybe a painted vase isn’t your thing. How about a sweet, girly glittery vase? You know I love my glitter, so of course, I HAD to share these! I saw something similar to this at Pottery Barn. I love that these can be made for a fraction of the price and look just as chic! Great job over at Decorations for Houses.

 

If your allergies are acting up, or maybe you want your flowers to last a little longer, why not whip up these delicate paper flowers from Happy Happy Nester. They would look great in the vases above, too!

 

Do you have scrap fabric lying around? Here is a great festive project that also uses up all your scraps. Whip up this easy as pie rag wreath in an afternoon. It will look fab on your door.  I love the creative ideas that are always coming out of the Project Pile!

 

Maybe you really want a wreath, but feel like something a little different..How about a galvanized bucket as the focal point of a door wreath.  Galvanized metal is so trendy right now, too! This seriously is the epitome of spring and and A Home to Grow Old In did a wonderful job putting this together!

 

As I mentioned, galvanized metal being incorporated into home decor really is all the rage right now. I love this tutorial from A Night Owl Blog  on how to add vintage flair to a metal floral bucket.

 

While we are thinking about making planters, pop over to  Rachel Teodoro for this fun tutorial. A neat idea on how to make aged terracotta pots!

 

And speaking of terracotta, here is a unique way to use them. Paint up a ton of the mini pots and make a wreath. I will be honest, I would have never thought of that as a way to use these pots like  Dazzle While Frazzled did!

 

Here is another super cleaver idea from Ella Claire Inspired. I love these little decorative wood pieces! It would be a great way to save part of a tree that was special to you, but had to be taken down. Also, would look amazing in a rustic themed home, and the pop of floral on them adds just the right hint of spring!

 

Another icon of spring is definitely the bird house. I love the colors of these houses and the slightly distressed nature of them. These would be great for indoor decor, or to make a little apartment complex outside for your favorite feathered friends! Check out The Speckled Dog for the full tutorial.

 

What would any decor round up be, without including  a few more mason jar ideas. They are seriously another of the really hot decor ideas trending right now. So for our mason jar inspiration, I looked to  Crafts Unleashed and found their spring planter box filled with chalk painted mason jars. I love the simple lettering and use of pastel colors. It really brings everything together.

 

To wrap up the list, I have one final mason jar decor idea to share. It is a completely different twist on a mason jar vase being shared by The Painted Home.

 

I hope that you have found some amazing spring decor ideas and go out and get your craft on! I would love to see what this collection has inspired you to create for spring! Make sure to stop by  or email me and show off your awesome craftiness! Be on the lookout for my favorites, which I will be featuring  in an upcoming blog post and the newsletter! I just can’t wait to share! I am always so impressed with just how creative and crafty my readers are!

Happy decorating!

Egg-cellent Ways to Decorate Easter Eggs

easter egg round up with drop shadow

I can’t believe that in one week it is going to be Easter! This is our second Easter with little miss! Time to start some traditions with her; like Easter egg decorating.

She is still pretty small to understand everything going on, being 14 months and all, but she will be  WAY more into it than last year! Ah, last year…when I stuffed her in an Easter basket surrounded by giant eggs, propped her on a pillow, and took a gazillion pictures! Literally, A GAZILLION! She was only two months old then, and it was our first holiday! I can use that as a legitimate excuse, RIGHT?! 🙂

Ella first easter

Anyways, this holiday loving momma decided to get some Easter traditions started early!  Really, it’s never to early to instill family traditions! Lil miss and I are going to decorate our first batch of Easter eggs ever! I am so excited to celebrate and share holidays with her, not to mention, everyday moments! So, in my normal fashion, to prepare, I did some scouring of the internet and found some amazing ideas for ways to decorate Easter eggs!

I am always looking for inspiration to get my creative juices flowing, and getting ideas for ways to decorate Easter eggs is no different. I am thrilled to be sharing some awesome posts by amazing bloggers. These posts will inspire and teach you unique and great ways to decorate Easter eggs. Here are my favorites that I have discovered and will be incorporating into our own Easter egg decorating projects with my sweet little miss!

So here it goes!

 

A plain Jane egg can be turned into a phenomenal head turner with just a few embellishments and some glue like Angie did from  Little Inspiration.

This year I seem to really be enjoying the look of simplicity, as seen with these lovely polka dot painted eggs from Diana at The Girl Creative. These look like a great option for my lil miss. Instead of a stamping tool to make the circles, I will probably have her do finger prints.

I love these eggs Maia and Sara made at Bitte because they are the perfect project for a parent and toddler to do together. The toddler can dye the egg and then mom or dad can add on the details. How fun to show the joys of collaboration at a young age and end up with such a stellar end product, too! Talk about a win-win idea!

Another trend I have been seeing all over the web is the use of water color in place of dye for eggs. I love the look of water color and the flexibility it provides. These water color eggs by Squirrelly Minds are great for adults and kids alike! They turn out so beautiful and unique every time!

Here, Erin from Printable Crush, takes a completely different approach on watercolor eggs by only painting half the egg and then adding beautiful brush lettering. I just love, love, love how these turned out. Also, I am sorta kinda, OK, completely obsessed with brush lettering right now! I have just started teaching myself, so this would be such a fun new surface to letter on!

If you like a little more of a bold look, as opposed to what you can achieve with water color, why not try acrylic paint. I have found some incredibly talented and creative eggs decorated Star Wars style by Sarah at Frugal Fun for Boys and Girls. These are awesome and her tutorial is great!

Now, these next two ways to decorate Easter eggs are very simple, but pack a huge punch! I love those types of projects. They are always my favorite! Ann from Duct Tape and Denim made fab galvanized Easter eggs.

While Allison from  Dream A Little Bigger, made mood Easter eggs. Remember moon rings? I loved those! These are an awesome take on that idea!

I also love the concept of using what we already have at home as a way to decorate Easter eggs. Rosemary at Not Just Paper and Paint dyed eggs using coffee, tea, and turmeric. These came out amazing. I love the tones of the color on the eggs.

What if you just aren’t feeling like painting or dying your eggs. Well, I have another idea, too! How about decoupage?! Yep! And you can decoupage awesome designs and text like Lavender Girl from Kiflies Levendula did!

Or get creative like Elizabeth from Frugal Mom Eh, with feathers. These decoupage eggs look so chic. I love both styles.
