Today I am excited to share five simple and thrifty ways to add spring decor touches throughout your home!
Yesterday was a gorgeous February day here in Michigan. The sun was shining, snow was melting and I think it even hit forty degrees!
After several weeks of snow and single digit temperatures, the warmer weather and sunshine put me in such a spring mood! That is why I decided to share five simple and thrifty spring decor touches with you to inspire you in your own home!
Simple and Thrifty Spring Decor Touches – Galvanized Metal
There is just something so beautiful about galvanized metal that reminds me of spring. I picture a garden blooming with flowers and a gorgeous antique galvanized metal watering can next to it all just tying the entire scene together.
This look is so easy to incorporate into your home! You can find galvanized metal at thrift stores or antique stores and bring it into your home to add touches of spring.
I love this old galvanized minnow bucket I have in my living room. I use it as a centerpiece on my coffee table to hold flowers. I found it at a thrift store a few years ago and it was very affordable! A canister, or watering can could be used the same way!
Simple and Thrifty Spring Decor Touches – Sun Hats
Sun hats are such an each way to bring spring into your home. They are also very affordable as well! You may not consider looking at hats while you are thrifting considering someone else wore them, but they are able to be cleaned and usually easy to find! Plus, you don’t have to wear them. Use them only for decor if you’d like!
I love hanging a variety of sun hats throughout my home, all different colors and sizes and even ones with ribbon tied around them! I usually like to hang a few by my entryway on my hooks and I even have several displayed in my bedroom throughout spring and summer.
Simple and Thrifty Spring Decor Touches – Fresh Flowers
Nothing says spring more than bright greenery and flowers throughout a home. I realize in some states, including my own that fresh flowers aren’t easy to come by with snow still on the ground, but there are so many excellent faux options!
I have a blog post here about how to find the perfect faux flowers. I have so many beautiful ones displayed in my home and it is really hard to even tell they aren’t real.
Of course you know I love real flowers as well, especially Hydrangeas and Lilacs once those bloom for me. There’s nothing like bringing the outside in!
But in the meantime while I wait for the snow to melt, faux will do just fine! 😉
Simple and Thrifty Spring Decor Touches – Switch Up Your Artwork
Another simple and thrifty way to bring spring into your home is to switch up your artwork. I love to look at thrift stores for beautiful bright pieces that have pastels or outdoor scenes. This beautiful cow scene is one of my favorites and reflects this time of year so well.
For those who have been following me a while, you know during the quarantine last spring I really dove into painting and absolutely loved it. I chose to share my shop opening with you all in this blog post and you are able to shop my paintings on this page! All of my paintings are digital downloads, so you are able to print them any size you’d like and they are affordable as well.
Simple and Thrifty Decor Touches – Pull Out Your Spring Jackets and Linens!
The final simple and thrifty decor idea I wanted to share with you is to incorporate your very own jackets and linens throughout your home for spring. I love to hide away all the winter coats and boots and pull out things like jean jackets and light linen scarves to hang by my front door in my entryway.
You could even take it a step farther and switch out pillowcases and kitchen towels to brighter and thinner fabrics to give your home a feeling of spring. Stripes especially remind me of spring and summer, so I love incorporating them into my spring decor!
I really hope these tips helped to inspire you in your own home as we approach the spring season. I am sure we have at least another month left of winter in Michigan, but I am excited to slowly start decorating.
