Spring Crafts and Decor Projects

Spring Crafts and Decor Projects

Even though it’s still a little chilly outside and nothing is in bloom yet, I’m definitely getting Spring fever. It always happens at this time of year, as I’m anxious for winter to melt into Spring. I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels this way, so let’s get inspired by some ideas for Spring crafts from thrifted finds.

Spring Doily Table Runner

White and beige doilies strung together in a table runner isn’t all that exciting. But dyeing them in bright, fresh hues is a game changer with this upcycling idea. Doesn’t it look like a sprinkling of Spring flowers along the table? And turning a pile of doilies into this table runner is easier than you may think.

Spring Crafts for the Door

Hanging a thrift store tote bag or purse on your front door sounds silly, but check out how lovely it is as an unexpected “wreath”! Filling it with flowers that can easily be changed out as seasons change, it’s a great way to extend the life of an old bag.

Vintage milk glass vases continue to be a popular thing to collect these days- for weddings, vintage decor, and more. But what about (temporarily!) embellished for seasonal holidays? These milk glass vases were done up elegantly for St. Patrick’s Day and it was SO easy to do! Imagine the possibilities for other holidays and seasons, as well…

Garden Decor Indoors

As Spring approaches, so does the itch to get the garden started- and sometimes, a little gardening comes inside, as well. In this case, an outdated box from the thrift store got a seasonal makeover thanks to some decoupage. And now, it’s a great way to keep all your seed packets organized and tidy.

Spring Decor with Milk Glass

Easter eggs hidden in the grass is quintessentially Spring for many of us. And you can easily recreate that look, albeit miniaturized, in some vintage milk glass bowls and vases from the thrift store.

Plus, nothing is glued down so the milk glass can be reused throughout the rest of the year, too.

Botanical Vibes

Vintage botanical prints are so popular right now that it’s fairly easy to find modern reproductions of them in trendy boutiques and design centers. But you can also print copies of the original designs for your own framing endeavors, perhaps using an old window like this.

And even if they’re lovely to look at all year long, botanical prints are particularly lovely as Spring unfurls.

Spring Crafts for St. Patrick’s Day

Before the eggs and chocolate bunnies come around, St. Patrick’s Day helps us usher in the Spring holidays. And for a subtle but lovely nod to Ireland, you can recreate the Irish countryside in a vintage mason jar like this. Isn’t it just sublime?

Easter Basket Wreath

A flat-backed hanging basket like this is simply perfect for transforming into an Easter basket “wreath”, isn’t it? And it’s ready to be filled with decorative eggs, bunnies, and Easter grass, too.

Spring Decor on a Screen

An old screened window might not be the first thing when you think of Spring decor, but I assure it works delightfully! In this case, small doilies were stitched on as flowers, with some simple embroidered leaves and vines, as well.

April Showers Bring…

A vintage umbrella may not work properly when it comes to keeping the rain at bay during bad weather. But filling it with silk flowers and hanging on your door is a wonderful way to give it a new lease on life.

After all, May flowers only arrive thanks to April showers, right?

Spring Crafts for Porch Decor

A large basket that is filled with fake (or real!) potted flowers is about as cheery as it gets, especially on your front porch. This one has been further embellished with ribbon and some stenciling, but it would just as darling plain.

Bird Nest Decor

If using metal candleholders like these to hold candles isn’t really your thing, what about using them to display something else instead? Those bases are the perfect size to display faux bird nests during Spring for seasonal decor that is positively darling.

Decorating with Light Fixtures

An old light fixture like this is a wonderful alternative to a mason jar or lantern for filling with seasonal decor. And in this case, Easter bits- grass, eggs, and bunnies– were added for a delightful piece to enjoy all season long.

St. Paddy’s Wreath

St. Patrick’s Day may not be a holiday significant enough for a wreath. But if you change your mind, perhaps this one will get your creative juices flowing. It started out as a plain faux boxwood wreath from a thrift store- but a few shamrocks later, it’s got the perfect Irish touch. But let’s be honest- it’s the rainbow bow that steals the show, right?

Picture Frames as Easter Eggs

Once Spring and Easter are here, keep your eyes peeled for vintage oval frames. (Thrift stores and yard sales are great places to find them!). Because with the right makeover and some sweet floral fabric, they can be transformed into Easter eggs like this for a delightful Spring mantelscape display.

Spring Crafts in Mason Jars

Who says “snow globes” have to include snow? In this case, little Springtime scenes were created in mason jars for a fun, seasonal twist. Whether you go the gardening or Easter route, there are plenty of Spring-like miniatures out there to make your own. Check the dollhouse section of craft and hobby shops, too!

Decorative Carrots

I know what you’re thinking- decorative carrots??!! But around Easter, they’re a fun and unexpected element to incorporate in your decor. There are lots of ways to make them, but these were made by upcycling some vintage bobbins from a textile mill.

I think the Easter Bunny would totally approve of these when he comes for a visit.

Spring Crafts in Pastels

Flowers and pastel colors go hand-in-hand with Spring. And while these Spring vases were made with milk (and milk-type) bottles, any glass vases would work. It’s the pastel paint job that gives them that “Hello, Spring!” feel.

Weaving for Easter

An open weave basket (i.e., one with gaps between the woven fibers) is an ideal candidate for this upcycling idea. Weaving colorful ribbon through the gaps and open spaces gives it a completely new look, painted or not. This plain basket from the thrift store is perfect for using as Easter decor now!
