Simple Spring Decor For Any Space
I don’t know about you, but Spring is one of my favorite times of the year: birds singing, grass turning green, flowers brimming with beautiful bright new colors and of course the weather is warming up. We hope.
Due to our hectic schedule I am only able to share a few, simple ideas today. Ones I created with what else? Things we already had in our home. Many of these items you will see in this series you may recognize from our recent St. Patrick’s Series found here.
First, of course, is our mantel.
Our mantel is in the center of the main floor so it tends to set the mood for the rest of the room and is visible by any guest entering our house.
This means, I try to create it first, for every holiday and every season.
As always, we began with the window frame that we build most of our mantel displays around.
And for Spring Decor we simply added
1.) An old mason jar with pussy willow branches tucked in (Both were rummage sale finds.)
2.) A Welcome Spring sign (I painted on a wooden sign from Michael’s a few years ago.)
3.) A blue paper mache bird (I also painted)
4.) A small bird’s nest with some loose blossoms tucked around.
It took less than 5 minutes to create and changed the look in the main rooms considerably (since we still had St. Paddy’s day up).
Here are a few close ups.
Of course, there is a bird in the display. It can’t be “spring” decor without a pretty little bird and butterfly. Not in our house anyway.
I like to have our seasons begin at the front door and this usually involves a fresh rug and fresh wreath, not necessarily new, just different than the ones we use for winter.
We haven’t found this year’s rug as of yet, but this wreath is going up. I created it a few years ago with a rummage sale wreath and tiny tulip bushes from the Dollar Store.
If you look closely you will see (tucked into the flowers) a tiny tin birdhouse and silver and white butterflies.
I also like to see Spring in other parts of our home, including the bathrooms and bedrooms.
The easiest way (for me) to do this in the bathrooms is to add a touch of flowers and seasonal hand towels.
(With three teenagers using this sink I don’t dare add too much décor or chaos will ensue.)
As I said the décor we added this year was simple and easy to create which is truly all we need to brighten our day, and hopefully yours.
