Looking for simple budget spring decorating ideas? Here’s how to shop your house and decorate for spring using what you already have.
Spring is a time to clean the house and get organized. But it is also a time to be creative and make home décor look fabulous and new. This is how to do it with easy and inexpensive projects.
Raise your hand if you are a millionaire.
I’m really sorry, friend.
This is not the post for you.
Because today? Today is all about how to decorate for spring and how to save money AT THE SAME TIME.
Two of my very favorite things.
Save your money for something much more exciting. Like a pair of stirrup pants (please tell me you are as surprised as me that they are back in style). Or a pedicure with purple nail polish. Or a really good lunch with a friend.
Today is all about shopping your house and your yard and your cupboards and using what you have to decorate for spring.
Here are tons of budget spring decorating ideas.
PS I’m also sharing the CUTEST affordable spring outfit ideas at the end of the post. Decorating and outfits for spring. Is there anything better?
budget spring decorating ideas
1. use book pages to decorate for spring
You probably have paperback books sitting around that were headed for the donate pile or the trash pile.
Don’t toss them yet.
Use them to decorate.
Here’s how I made this book-page bird wreath for spring.
You could also create a book page garland.
Or even fold a book and create art.
2. Make a spring pot
There is nothing.
And I mean NOTHING cuter than a spring flower pot.
It’s like showing winter the door and inviting spring in.
3. Frame it
Shop your house and find all the frames to decorate with for this simple budget spring decorating idea.
Then shop your house and find something ordinary and frame it.
Anything. Even a paintbrush. You can see how I framed this paintbrush here.
Just between us?
Everything looks so much CUTER in a frame.
4. Coffee Filters
Shop your kitchen cupboards for coffee filters.
The ones that you use to make coffee every morning. Did you know they have an entirely different purpose?
And in a total aside that literally has nothing to do with decorating?
5. Vintage Windows
Shop your storage shed for a vintage window or even a mirror or an empty frame.
Here are four creative budget spring decorating ideas to decorate it.
You can see all the creative ways here.
6. Shop your yard
Have several mason jars sitting in your kitchen cupboards?
Why not repurpose them with an easy budget spring decorating idea for a mantel display?
Simply cut leaves from the yard, then line up the mason jars and fill them with water and leaves.
7. DIY topiary
This topiary is an easy budget spring decorating idea. All you’ll need is a pot of ivy and a wire coat hanger.
I know the coat hanger might be hard to find. We mostly have plastic here.
Check with your local dry cleaners.
Follow these simple DIY instructions.
8. simple burlap bow
This DIY takes minutes.
And it makes one of the prettiest, simplest, BIGGEST bows for your spring decor.
The key is in the ribbon. Shop your craft closet for the ribbon. One roll will make two of these bows.
9. DIY pom pom pillow
If you are wondering how to decorate for spring without spending a dime to make this. Just shop your house and remake over an old pillow.
This simple pom pom pillow is an easy budget spring decorating idea. It’s only made with fabric glue and tassels.
Here’s the simple DIY.
You can also make a pom pom pillow from leftover drop cloth, too.
10. DIY fabric flower
I’ve seen these in stores before for $15 or more.
But why pay that much?
Especially when you can just make your own using leftover fabric in your fabric closet.
See the simple DIY here.
BONUS PROJECT: spring table runner
I’m including this as a bonus spring project because this ribbon is hard to find. This is such a simple spring project and perfect for bridal showers or a spring table.
Do you know what this runner is?
The kind that comes in a roll.
The kind that you pick up in the craft store and have no idea what to do with it.
Moss ribbon stumped?
Why not make a runner?
Here’s the simple DIY.
Now go forth and shop your house. I hope you found a little budget spring inspiration on how to decorate for spring with what you already have from today’s post.
I hope it warmed your heart.
I hope your spring decor is as amazing as you are.
And just remember.
Even though it’s cold and wintery today?
Warmth and sunshine and YARD SALES are just around the corner. 🙂
