It’s finally Spring! Time to open the windows, let in some fresh air and spruce up your home. Today I’ll be sharing some renter-friendly DIY Spring Decorating Ideas with you.
BRIGHTEN YOUR SPACE WITH PILLOWS
Decorating is one of my favorite things to do and Spring is the perfect time to do it. I love all the vibrant colors that come with the onset of the season and I like to infuse the colors of nature into my apartment decorating plan. I find that one of the easiest ways to decorate is to change out your pillows. I recently bought these beautiful aqua pillows to add a pop of fresh Spring color to my living room.
But, don’t fret – it’s not necessary to spend a fortune purchasing pillows! Buy a few pillow forms and then follow this tutorial to make your own pillow covers that you can switch out. If you don’t know how to sew, there are special products you can use to heat bond your fabric together. Here are some pillows that I made for my porch a few years ago using the tutorial.
ADD COLOR WITH CURTAINS
Another big statement that I have added to my home are my DIY curtains. I love the bold yellow color paired with my aqua pillows. The chevron curtains that I was considering buying were well over $100, so instead, I made my own using IKEA curtains and interior paint.
CREATE A SPRING WREATH
Wreaths are a perfect way to add a Springtime feel to your home. I recently made this wreath using wire, plastic eggs, and Easter grass.
There are so many options when making a DIY wreath. You can use a styrofoam wreath form and stick flowers into it, you can wrap the wreath form in a Springtime-colored burlap, or you can purchase a wire wreath form and tie scraps of fabric around it. The possibilities are endless.
DECORATE YOUR MANTEL
The main focal point in our family room is the mantel. Mantels provide an excellent opportunity for decorating. I mix and match things found around the house and usually add in a seasonal printable. For Spring, I have incorporated some of my daughter’s painted birdhouses into the design. She loves that her artwork is on display and I love that it fits perfectly with my decor. A few Mason jars, some flowers and frames attached to the wall with 3M strips complete the look.
Here is my Spring mantel from last year. Same elements but a little different look.
Decorating does not have to be expensive, and you certainly don’t have to paint your walls to infuse color into your home. What do you do to decorate for Spring? Let us know in the comments below!
