Spring Accent Ideas You Can Make Yourself

Do you look forward to the new seasons? If you live somewhere with snow, preparing for spring is one of the more joyful times of the year. While getting started on your spring cleaning, spend some time refreshing your home decor, too. Follow the trend of change happening outside by welcoming spring with different and new accents around the house. Read below for some spring decor ideas you can make all on your own!
Front Door Decoration

Starting outdoors is the best way to give a new life to your home. We're all in a rush to get outside once the weather clears up and having something new to adorn your front door with is a friendly way to say, "hello spring!" One idea is finding any wreath base and beautifying it with pastel flowers of your choice, and even wood lettering stating “hello” or “spring.” Another way is taking a wall basket and filling it with tulips or other flowers. Both of these ideas are simple ways to add a little color and sunshine to the front of your home.

How about a three-dimensional wallpaper for your home with hanging baskets?

Spring Centerpiece Ideas
When it comes to spring and celebrating Easter, having your table garnished with some fresh spring decor is a must. A tablescape with tulips is always the perfect way to welcome spring. However, there are many ways to revamp this traditional centerpiece and make the ultimate spring decor piece.

How about a Peeps Centerpiece? Start by getting a cylinder vase, about eight inches in diameter  and a small cylinder or vase  about 4 inches. in diameter.   You need about an inch of space inside for the peeps. Then, get an assortment of peeps! Outline the interior of the cylinder, making a wall of the marshmallow peeps. The smaller cylinder you fill up water. Make sure you cut your desired flowers the height you want before adding them to the cylinder with water. You do not want soggy bunnies, if the height is wrong. Tulips, of course, will pair well with this look. I loved how this turned out.

I used the vases I had on hand and also added jelly beans to the bottom of the vase.

Framed Bunny
Regularly, there are the same photos and decor hung on walls of your home year-round. Use spring to mix things up for a month or two! Gather assorted photo frames to spruce up your walls during this time of year. First, paint only the structure white. Once dried, sand it lightly for a rustic look, if desired. Take the back of the frame and remove the glass because you won't be needing it. Cover the background with burlap or tan felt. Next, trace an easter bunny on another sheet with a fun pattern, such as buffalo check, a floral design, or something geometric. Paste the rabbit on the center of the background, and add a white pompom for the tail. Put the photo frame back together to display the perfect spring accent starting in mid-March until May! Here's some free bunny printable at Faeries and Fauna

Display Easter Eggs
There is one last simple do-it-yourself extension for your spring decor this year. It can be used almost anywhere in your home!

Dyeing eggs is a spring tradition that every kid looks forward to; however, having these colorful pieces of art on display can be challenging to manage. Placing eggs around the home for decor increases the risk of having a mess from them cracking or breaking. To overcome this obstacle, use artificial decorative eggs that can be dyed, just like the real ones. Begin by decorating the eggs however you want, then let them dry. Place the eggs in baskets on a coffee table, or fill a vase for your tablescape. Whatever you do, be as creative as you can!

Plush Critter Jars
These are easy to make.  You can use your own jam jars, or mason jars.  Buy a few plush animals from the Dollar store. Cut the critter after the arms and neck. so you can glue the head with the arms attached to the lid. Cut off the feet (sounds morbid) and glue each one at the bottom of the jar. Add some jelly beans and you are finished. The kiddos love these! Very inexpensive diy. $2.00 to make if you use your own jars.

Find what areas of your home that need a good refreshing for spring. Dive into the bright and pastel colors to bring new life into your home. While creating your decor pieces, you too will feel refreshed in the process. Happy spring!

  12. Hola Linda, qué bonitas ideas nos dejas para vestir nuestra casa de primavera los cestitos cuajados de flores colgados en la pared, el jarrón adornado con las gominolas de conejitos, los huevos pintados para esconder por el jardín, pero todo esto va a tener que esperar este año, no se vosotros pero aquí en Barcelona estamos confinados en casa por el Coronavirus, sin poder salir a la calle más que para ir a la farmacia , al supermercado a comprar lo imprescindible o al hospital, tampoco podemos ver a nuestros nietos e hijos que también están encerrados en sus casas, menos mal que ahora podemos estar en contacto por video y podemos ver un ratito a los niños cada día, pero mira estoy aprovechando para hacer todas aquellas cosas para las que nunca tengo tiempo. Un beso grande

  13. I love your pretty tulips in their equally colorful vase. What a fun and beautiful centerpiece.


I so appreciate your visits and sharing your thoughts at Life and Linda.
