Best DIY Spring Decor Ideas

DIY Spring Decor Ideas

Between spring cleaning and spring hosting, the season is a time when your home should really shine. You can show off your home by doing a few (easy) DIY decor projects that make your space feel fresh throughout the spring months. These projects can be done on your own, with your kids, or, if you want to make a day out of it, with your friends, too. Here are some easy DIY spring decor projects to get your home ready for the new season—and for most of these, you won’t even have to worry about making a big mess in your home. They’re that easy!

Make a Bouquet of Fresh Flowers

Fresh flowers and spring go together like peanut butter and jelly. Use the fresh flowers in your garden—or at your local grocery store—to make a beautiful spring bouquet for your kitchen table. To make this DIY activity feel particularly spring-like, get flowers that are synonymous with spring, like daffodils, tulips, or crocus.

This DIY is easy and doesn’t require too much effort on your part. In other words, you’ll be able to get this done in a matter of minutes and don’t have to worry about making a mess on whatever outfit you’re wearing—even your favorite maxi dress.

Make a Spring Wreath

Put on your errand-running women’s yoga pants and head to your nearest craft store and get a variety of fake leaves and greenery to use to make a wreath for your front door. You can choose from any combination of greens and leaves—and even flowers—to create the perfect front door decor for your home.

This craft isn’t quite as easy as creating a fresh bouquet, but it still isn’t too hard. You can use a hot glue gun to adhere the wreath together. And be sure to pick up a wire wreath frame when you’re at the craft store. This will make your project much easier.

Decorate Eggs

With Easter falling in the middle of spring, any Easter-themed DIY activities are always a welcome seasonal craft. On a spring Saturday, paint Easter eggs with your kids. You can go with a theme for your painting project (themes like spring or animals work well) or let your kids truly unleash their creativity and paint their eggs however they please. Once you’re done with this project and the eggs are totally dry, you can hang them from a tree in your front yard or put them on display in a decorative tray on your dining room table.

Keep in mind that painting can get messy, so make sure the sleeves of your kid’s sweatshirts are rolled up.

Make a Birdhouse

Welcome your neighborhood birds back to your yard after a long winter by creating a birdhouse that’s filled with birdseed and even a little birdbath. You can create a birdhouse using many of the DIY kits available at craft stores—or, if you’re feeling more crafty, you can get a hammer and nails and build a little hut yourself.

Once you’re done, place your birdhouse near your outdoor furniture, so you’ll have prime views of your neighborhood birds whenever you spend time outdoors. Having a birdhouse in your yard even makes for a fun activity for kids: they can keep an eye out for birds and try to name the different species that visit.

Do Some Spring Cleaning

While it’s not a craft, spring cleaning will make your space feel as good as new while giving your home decor DIY projects room to shine. Before you start your spring decor project, make sure your home is clean—especially the spot where you want to place your new craft.

Whatever DIY spring decor idea you choose, be sure to pick the one that fits the vibe in your home. You want to create a craft that you’ll be excited to display and can have a place of its own in your home every spring. You should be as proud and excited about this craft as you are about your personalized doormats or that vintage rug find.
