Creative Ways to Decorate for Spring

It seems that Mother Nature is confused because we are supposed to get a few inches of snow today, but I'm pushing forward and still on the look for creative ways to decorate for Spring! I don't have many decorations for this time of year, heck I don't even have a Spring wreath! Plus, the only decor I have around the house doesn't really shout, "It's Springtime"; a few plants, my cherished teddies, owls (of course!), and a huge smiling rustic sun that I hang outside to greet our guests isn't going to cut it! I want get more creative and really brighten things up after the long winter we've experienced this year. Here are a few ideas I discovered by searching Pinterest that I'm obsessing over...

Is it too late to make my own Spring wreath? If not, then here are a few wreath ideas I'm inspired by...

So, I showed this garden hose wreath from Create. Craft. Love to the hubby and he wasn't seeing the same unique and quirky Spring wreath idea I was seeing! What do you think? Is it too out of the box or is it just right? 

I love the fabric flower wreath from Digital Designs Scrapbooking with the little blue wooden bird and picture frame, it's cheerful and perfect for Spring and Summer. Do you think it has too much going on, or would you leave it just as is?

I have seen these fabric ball wreaths trending during the winter holiday season, but haven't really seen too many for Spring and Summer until I stumbled upon this one from The Love Nerds. This color combination is one of my favorites, it was actually our wedding colors and they have since been my favorite colors for Spring. 

How can you not love this amazing succulent wreath from Garden Therapy, am I right? It looks like a lot of time was put into creating this beauty. I had a succulent plant my mom purchased one year at the Philadelphia Flower Show, but sadly it didn't last. Any tips on taking care of succulents?! 

From wreaths to planters, there are just so many creative ways to decorate for Spring...

It's really amazing what a little spray paint, a few stencils, and rope can do to change the look of a boring planter! 

This southwest painted tiered planter DIY is from last year, but arrows are still trending so you can't go wrong with going the southern route with this idea from East Coast Creative

I recently wrote a post for AWS about DIY rope decor ideas, still waiting for it to go live and will update you with that link! But, who knew rope could be so much fun and bring new life to a simple planter?! I love that blogger April from House by Hoff  painted her rope to give it even more character.

If you are looking for a pop of color and you are obsessed with pink or bright neon colors, then this last idea from The Proper Pinwheel is just for you! Grab your favorite can of spray paint and get creative! 

Sometimes a table runner is all you need to bring new life to a boring tablescape....

I had a really cute table runner for the holiday season, but currently my table only has a single plant sitting on it...not very creative! 

This first table runner was created using paint stinks....the ideas people come up with are just mind blowing! I love the herringbone pattern that was created, by Amanda over on Ruffled it gives it more of a creative design element then just gluing them side by side for the table runner. 

How adorable is this paper pinwheel table runner from Green Wedding Shoes? I'm not sure how long it would last in a household full of children, but if you are looking for a table runner for the Spring holidays that would really impress your guests, this would be a great one! 

So, there you have it a few of my favorite creative ways to decorate for Spring...now let's go execute them! 

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day! 

PS.... have you checked out my blog Facebook page yet?! I'm running a fun giveaway when I hit 100 likes, co-hosting with my friend Katie over at Busy Bee Kate, give her a sweet hello!

  1. Awesome ideas! I personally love that hose idea and would love to make a spring wreath. Maybe I'll pick up a kit at Paper Source the way I did in the fall, when Stephen and I put together that owl wreath.
