The Arrival of Spring

The snow on our lawn has melted, Robins are hopping about, and the daylight is lasting longer in the evenings. This all points to the arrival of spring. It’s time to transition our home to lighter and brighter decor to reflect the season. Embrace the longer days and blooming flowers by bringing pops of color and natural elements into your space. Having said that, I don’t want to break the bank and run out to buy new decor. So here are some affordable, easy and fast ways you can decorate for spring.

Most of these ideas can be implemented in less than 5 minutes. I tend to re-use what I already have on hand or bring out something I had from last spring. If I did spend money on a new spring item, it was $25 or less. So let’s jump in.

5 Ideas for Easy and Affordable Spring Decor

Spring Wreath

Hanging a wreath takes less than 5 minutes. So, it’s at the top of my list for easy and fast ways to decorate for spring. I keep my wreaths from previous years and will bring them out for the appropriate season. The total cost for me to use the wreath again – $0.

This moss wreath is perfect for spring and you can learn how to make it HERE.

Of course, you don’t need a moss wreath. You can hang any spring wreath you desire. This is a great post on how to refresh an old spring wreath.

Fresh Flowers

Trader Joe’s is my go to resource for fresh flowers. They have a great selection at great prices. This time of year they sell bundles of daffodils for $3.00 each. I purchased 2 bundles and put them in a vase for an instant spring infused table centerpiece.

Because daffodils appear as winter loosens its grip, they have come to symbolize rebirth, new beginnings, and hope. This aligns perfectly with the feeling of renewal that spring brings.

Of course, there are other fresh flowers you can bring into your home including tulips, grape hyacinths, and ranunculus. I even set out some pussy willows.

Artificial Eggs

When I went to a local craft store recently, I was happily surprised by the amount and quality of artificial eggs. Whereas in previous years it was very obvious that eggs were artificial – these eggs looked so real! So I grabbed a couple of bags. As I recall, they were around $5 a bag. The best part is that I can stow these eggs away for use next year.

I placed the eggs on my coffee table next to a wooden swan. It seemed appropriate since swans lay eggs.

Decorating my coffee table with artificial eggs took about 5 minutes and cost $10.

Rabbits

It’s nearly impossible to have spring decor without using rabbits. I prefer rabbits that look a little mature and older. I purchased this resin rabbit planter several years ago and gave it a makeover with some milk paint.

Every spring I like to bring him out and fill the basket with flowers. This year, I used the basket on the back of the rabbit to grow paperwhites. Below is a photo from last year when I filled his back basket with flowers.

You can use rabbits on your table, in your front entryway, and even on your coffee table. They are easy enough to find at garden centers, big box stores, and even thrift stores. If you don’t like the way the rabbit looks, you can always paint it. Here is a great tutorial on how to paint a bunny to give it a new look.

Decorating with the rabbit took about 5 minutes and cost $0.

Pillows

This year I did make one other purchase for spring decor. I bought this adorable rabbit themed block print pillow cover. It was $25 from Target and part of the Studio McGee Collection. The best part about this pillow is it has a zipper closure! My only rule when it comes to buying pillow covers is they need to be able to be separated from the pillow insert so I can wash them.

As soon as the pillow arrived, I pulled out the flat cotton pillow insert that came with it and replaced it with one of my own feather/down filled pillow inserts.

If you prefer a more subtle spring theme and like muted tones then this pillow would be perfect. It took a minute for my brain to register that there were rabbits and carrots in the pillow design. Once I realized what I was looking at, I decided I needed to buy it.

Total time to put a new pillow cover on my sofa, including replacing the pillow insert, was 5 minutes and the pillow cover cost $25.

Summary

No matter how you decide to decorate for spring, I hope you enjoy all that the season offers. The longer days, the start of a garden, birds singing in the morning and the occasional cotton tail hopping through the yard all point to the emerging season.

Thank you for stopping by the blog today.

  2. I love that these ideas are not only beautiful but also practical as well, Anna. I can’t get over TJ’s has bundles of daffodils like that for $3- they are gorgeous. They feel like such a beautiful way to celebrate the gifts of Spring. I wish we had one close by. I’d be there all the time! Speaking of which, I’m definitely going to keep my eye out for bunnies to makeover. I had no idea you could find stuff like that at thrift stores. Yours are so pretty!
