Forget spring cleaning — let’s talk spring crafting instead!
We’ve rounded up four simple-but-statement-making¬†DIY spring decor projects that will brighten up any space with ease.
Round up the crafting supplies, and get your home ready for spring with these fun DIY projects:
1. Floral String Art
Mason jars and flowers? Yes, please!
- A mason jar template (Try this one from Sweetly Scrapped)
- A wooden board
- A hammer
- A drill
- Faux florals
- Begin by taping the mason jar template to the bottom half of your board.
- Pre-drill the holes along the mason jar template, and keep them approximately 1/2″ apart.
- Hammer¬†in the nails about 1/4″ into the board to allow space for your twine.
- Tie a piece of twine to one nail, and then wrap the twine from one nail to the next. Repeat this process until all of the nails have been connected, and then repeat this step once more for added dimension.
- Remove the template, using pliers or tweezers to remove any leftover paper from tight spaces.
- Next, secure¬†any loose¬†strings with hot glue.
- Cut your faux flowers with wire cutters to the size needed.
- Finally, slide the flowers between the nails to create the look of flowers tucked inside the mason jar.

2. Burlap Artwork
This DIY spring decor project is¬†easy¬†to do and makes for a great gift.
- A small picture frame
- A scrap of burlap fabric
- Bird stencil
- A couple of paintbrushes
- Americana acrylic paints in Cotton Ball and Soft Jade
- Paint the frame in the Soft Jade color. Apply at least two coats.
- Cut a scrap of burlap to match the size of the glass inside the frame.
- Next, place the stencil over the burlap, and use a pouncer brush to¬†lightly apply the white paint over the stencil. You want to make sure you pounce the brush on paper first so that it isn‚Äôt totally loaded with paint and uneven. ¬†Less is more with stenciling.
- Finally, let everything dry, and then put it all back together.

3. Flower Chandelier
Because florals for spring may not be groundbreaking, but they’re most definitely in style.
- 3-4 dozen flowers
- A wooden embroidery hoop
- 15-20 yards of assorted ribbon
- 1-2 yards of lace trim
- A D ring or plastic ring
- Floral shears
- A bucket
- A glue gun
- Cut two 3-yard lengths of ribbon. Fold them in half and thread them through the D ring, creating a small loop at the end. Pull the ends of the ribbon through the loop, pulling tightly.
- Measure approximately 18 inches down from the base of the ring and make a mark. Remove the outer ring from the embroidery hoop, dividing the circumference of the hoop into four equal parks with a marker. Line the marking on the ribbon with the top of the embroidery hoop, and use hot glue to attach it to the inside of the hoop.
- Mark the shape of a ‚ÄúV‚ÄĚ with the hot glue, and wrap the ribbon around the hoop to secure it. Repeat on all four sides.
- Now that you have the base of the chandelier constructed, you can start adding flowers. Trim the flowers, and tie them to the ends of the four strands of ribbon.
- Using different lengths of ribbons, start adding flowers to the rest of the hoop. Glue the ribbons onto the hoop the same way you did the first four strands, and be sure to evenly distribute the weight of the flowers. If you prefer, hang the chandelier from a hook on the ceiling while working.
- Finally, take a piece of lace trim, and glue it to the outside of the hoop.

4. No-Sew Rabbit Pillow
This may just be the cutest DIY spring decor project¬†I’ve ever seen.
- 1 ready-made pillow with a solid-colored back
- 1/4 yard of bonding paper
- 1/4 yard of cotton fabric
- .75 inch pompoms
- Leaping rabbit silhouette
- Iron the bonding paper to the wrong side of the fabric according to the directions.
- Trace the rabbit silhouette onto that same side of the fabric with the paper backing.
- Cut out the rabbit silhouette from your printout.
- Peel off the paper backing from the fabric, and then attach the sticky side to your pillow.
- Next, adhere the rabbit shape to the pillow per the bonding paper instructions.
- Finally, use a hot glue gun to attach a pompom tail to each rabbit. (And marvel at how stinkin’ cute your new pillow is.)
