With winter gone and spring in our laps it’s time to start freshening up our home’s décor. Don’t you agree? It is so nice to have all the warm and cozy colors decorating our house throughout the winter months but once spring gets here, it’s time to move on!
Frugal Spring Decorating Tips
Light and bright colors are the pallet of choice for our house. Whenever I walk into a home with beautiful bright colors I just instantly feel happier. And that’s how I want my family to feel and everyone that comes to visit feel. Happy! Now is the perfect time to start working on your spring decorations! Use light and bright colors.
My first stop this spring has been my kitchen. We have a very outdated and worn kitchen. Another easy way to freshen up your spring decorating in the kitchen is with greenery and natural colors and elements. And by elements I am talking about natural things you would have in your kitchen like lemons or other citrus or other props like spring colored cooking utensils. Things like that.
Pick one room at a time, decorate as you find the awesome deals and as your budget allows.
Don’t let the kitchen stop you! These spring inspired wreaths would also make a great addition to spring decorating all over your house! I plan on making a bigger one to put on our front door. You know, when I find the time of course…
Are you ready to make one? Let me show you how easy it is!
All the supplies you will need (don’t forget to use your coupons!):
2 – 12” Twig wreaths
6 yards of Ribbon
Hot glue and glue sticks
Small fake flowers
12”x12” Artificial Grass Mat (I found mine at Michael’s Crafts and used a 40% off coupon but you can see this one here is similar- mine has more of a clover leaf on the grass)
Get your hot glue all geared up and while that’s heating you can start taking all the little pieces of grass off of the mat. How easy is it that they just pop right off and are in the perfect position to be glued into a wreath?
Time to start gluing. I decided to start on the outside and work my way in. So working with one piece of grass cluster at a time, place a pea-sized amount of hot glue on the bottom end of the grass. Then find a snug place on the outer edge of the wreath and place it right in there. Working with this fake grass is nice because it is so forgiving. You don’t need to worry too much about placing in just the right spot.
Continue working your way around the outer rim of the wreath. Once the outer circle is completed, continue the same process but now filling in the remainder of the inside of the wreath. This is where you are going to want to be more sporadic. Try not to follow the same circle pattern as you did on the outer rim.
Try not to over fill. I think it looks nice to have just a little bit of the wood twigs showing through the greenery.
Now that you are finished with the greens, start taking your little flower off from their stems but make sure to leave about a 1” stem connected to the flower. This will make it a lot easier to attach to the wreath. For this step I just used some scissors and clipped where I needed.
With a small amount of hot glue on the bottom of the flowers stem, start placing them all over the wreath in a spontaneous pattern. Try to make it look as natural as possible.
That’s it for the glue! To hang the wreath all you need to do is take about 6-7 feet (the length depends on how and where you are deciding to hang the wreath) of ribbon and loop through the wreath. Tie the ends of the ribbon in a knot and hang it up! Secret: I actually used duct tape on the inside of my cupboards to hold my wreath up. Not pretty but no one will ever see that part!
Super easy and cheap way to freshen up your spring décor around your home!
