15 days until Spring! And you better believe I am counting down each day! (And enjoying seeing a forecast close to 70 degrees later this week even though we had snow flurries on Saturday – crazy GA weather!)
So I thought I would round up a bunch of my past projects in one post so if you are itching for Spring like me, you could get started a few days early! Hope you are ready for some spring inspiration!
Let’s talk wreaths. First thing that puts me in the mood for a new season or holiday is a beautiful wreath on my front door. I made this green square wreath last year and it is one of my favorites!
I actually plan to make a different wreath this year that I fell in love with when I saw it posted on facebook earlier. But for now, my $3.00 spring green wreath is on my front door and will get used somewhere else when my new wreath is done.
This clothespin wreath is fun too! Whether you choose to use it in our laundry room or forgo the laundry theme and just stick with clothespins – it is adorable.
A hydrangea wreath could be so pretty for spring or early summer too. Make it with faux hydrangeas, dried hydrangeas like this, or even fresh hydrangeas arranged in a water soaked foam wreath for a special occasion – so gorgeous!
My white coffee filter wreath is one of my most popular projects and perfect for Spring! Choose a pink, yellow, or light green ribbon to hang it with or even add some floral accents.
I used this yellow and white wreath for summer last year but the yellow forsythia is perfect for spring. I have already seen it blooming in the last week (and wish I had some bushes in my yard.)
And don’t forget about the ever popular burlap wreath! This rolled book page style burlap wreath is a classic.
I want to add this jute wrapped monogram to a wreath one day too. Just need the perfect one.
I have this moss covered monogram hanging upstairs but I might have to move it downstairs in a more visible place for spring.
Yarn wreaths come in every color and style imaginable. You can totally adapt them to your taste and colors.
Once my front door is decorated, I usually move indoors (while I am waiting impatiently for the weather to get the message that I am ready for Spring).
Here’s my spring mantel from last year
I love changing up my table seasonally and here is a simple spring table with some fresh tulips.
And I am usually busy making some changes to décor inside too – lightening things up. This can be done on a budget like spray painting some thrift store lamps,
Using paint sticks to create a gorgeous sunburst mirror,
Updating light fixtures, vents, or even door handles with some spray paint.
Then it is time to move outside!
I spray painted my door mat last year and gave it new life. Don’t ever doubt the power of a can of spray paint! The mat still looks as good as new!
Painted and stained the front porch (glad I don’t have to do that again this year!)
And then did a mini front porch makeover adding a bench and some artwork outside.
My mailbox even got a redo too. Probably my most shocking before/after – I didn’t even think it could turn out this good. And YES, that is the same mailbox and the SAME pole!
I shared our deck reveal last spring too. We had to put a new deck on our house 2 years ago since the oldest one was warped and damaged. Finally got it furnished and decorated last spring – can’t wait to start spending some time out there!
I took this old window and turned it into a wall hanging and planter for some “ art” on our deck.
Can’t wait to get my hands dirty and get the flower beds and pots all filled up and pretty again! I have a new plan for the pots this year – hope it works.
And while you are cleaning out your flower beds, make sure to keep the dead lily stems! You can use them to add height and interest to flower arrangements such as this simple one I did for a bridal shower in a mason jar.
And this is a great project to do with Easter coming up in just a few weeks. An Easter garden or Empty tomb garden
So that’s it! My best projects that are perfect for spring. I can’t wait to share a whole new batch with you this year. I have a new wreath in the works that I can’t wait to share, I love my spring mantel, and can’t wait to get to work outside along with make some changes in lightening things up inside.
What do you love about Spring? What projects do you plan do work on this spring – inside, outside or both?
