11 Fresh DIY Home Decor Projects for Spring


Spring isn’t just about cleaning. It’s about a fresh, new outlook on a new season.


Making some small decor changes is a great way to step into spring with a clear mind. But buying a bunch of new decorations isn’t really an option when you’re trying to stick to a budget.


Don’t worry! You can use inexpensive dollar store items to create some really beautiful, fun spring decorations that are easy to make and will give your home a facelift.


Here are some really creative DIY projects you can do that will give you some new spring decor inspiration without breaking the bank.


1. An Umbrella Wreath


This umbrella wreath makes any door look festive and inspiring for spring, and you can hang it wherever you’d like- in your dorm, apartment, or even your bedroom door.


Get the tutorial here. While this one uses real flowers, you can easily substitute fake ones from the dollar store for an extremely low-maintenance decoration.


2. Teacup Gardens


These teacup garden ideas are so perfect for spring, and the plants will help reduce stress levels so you can breathe easy.


They are extremely customizable. You can use any mug you want, with whatever plants you prefer, and whatever coloured pebbles you desire.


Best of all, they make great gifts, too!



3. The Painted Flower Pot


You might remember painting flower pots when you were a kid, most likely in elementary school. Now, you can update this classic craft as an adult and add that colourful touch to your home.


Flower pots are inexpensive, and you can use them over and over again. Here’s a cool tutorial you can check out if you need more design inspiration.


4. Painted Flower Pine Cones in a Frame

Pine cones are painted to look like colourful flowers and attached in a frame. This craft is super easy, and the best part is that pine cones are free if you can find them outside!



5. A Crafty Update For Your Shoes


Take last year’s flats and turn them into something a little different by adding a ribbon or a bow, or another embellishment of your choice. You can also do this with flip flops for a new twist.


You’ll feel like you have a brand new pair of shoes- without the price tag!


6. A Glass Vase of Branches


Branches are super rustic-chic, and they look beautiful in a glass vase. With branches, you have tons of options. You can glue items to the branches, like candy, pom poms, or beads, or you can keep it simple with flowered branches.


Turn an old glass jar or bottle into a vase by simply taking the label off and sanitizing it. Follow these instructions if you’re not sure.
