It’s time to start pulling out all the fun spring ideas! Check out these 17 easy spring DIY projects and choose one for a weekend afternoon!
I don’t know whether it is the beautiful weather or the anticipation of a fresh season or just the promise of spring, in general, but it brings out all the DIY feelings around here! As long as they are easy spring DIY projects, that is.
You too? Then you’re in the right place!
I’ve rounded up a bunch of easy spring DIY projects from some of my blogging friends. Simple, accessible projects that you can just have a lot of fun with! There are several on here that I want to try, myself, and some that my kids are asking to do too.
I love when we have a fun plan for something creative to do together on a Saturday afternoon or spring evening, so this list of easy spring DIY projects will be perfect to pull out on those days!
Let’s get started!
1. Easy Spring DIY Tulip Wreath
I had to make this beautiful DIY from Stephanie at Gathered in the Kitchen the first one because tulips are my favorite spring flower! She shares an easy tutorial to make your own wreath this season and you can find my favorite faux tulips linked HERE. Start with your front door and get your porch feeling fresh and welcoming for the new season!
2. DIY Painted Sparrow Charger
If you’ve been following me since last spring, you know my love for vintage Audubon prints. I expect they will make an appearance around our home sometime this season too! These DIY painted chargers from The Roots of Home immediately caught my eye! I love the sweet sparrows and I also love how budget-friendly this DIY is too! Check them out HERE!
3. Easy Wreath Tutorial for All Seasons
Does anyone else just love decor that can play double-duty? If you’re looking for easy, you can’t get much better than creating one wreath that you can quickly tweak for each season. Faith and Farmhouse has a great tutorial on making a beautiful greenery wreath and ideas to make it perfect for each season! No matter what kind of wreath you want to make, this is just a really great, basic tutorial!
4. Easy Spring DIY Stone Birdhouse
My friend Kim from Cottage in the Mitten has our family totally inspired to make a birdhouse this spring! We have a cardinal family that comes over a couple of times a year to build a nest and we always love watching the whole nest-building, egg, and baby bird process! So we need a birdhouse to go with it!
Kim’s tutorial is so fun and easy and I think we are going to have a lot of fun making one. Stay tuned to see how ours turns out this spring!
5. How to Plant a Container Garden
A container garden was on my “DIY wish list” last year but I never got it started. I had to include this tutorial from my friend Stacy at Bricks and Blooms. It’s inspiring me to get a container garden from the wish list to the “to do” list! This looks so fun and I think my kids will have fun getting involved too. Stacy makes it look pretty easy with these 7 steps, so maybe even my almost-black thumb can do it!
6. Create a Woven Wreath!
You didn’t think we’d have an easy spring DIY round up without several fun wreath options, did you?! Wreaths are always fun to make and spring is the perfect excuse to get creative! I love the uniqueness of this woven wreath from The Everyday Farmhouse! We actually have some of this cording on hand, so maybe we will give it a try too! This is another great idea for something that can be tweaked for different seasons or to fit your own color palette.
7. Easy Spring DIY Crochet Bunny
I’ll admit, I’ve never taken time to think about learning to crochet, but I had to include this because one of my girls is really wanting to learn! This tutorial from Birdz of a Feather is exactly what we need to have a little fun this spring! Besides, how can we even have spring decor without some bunnies?! Check out this fun and easy spring DIY bunny HERE!
8. Make Your Own Air Plant Holder!
I love air plants! Like I said before, I have an “almost black thumb”, so air plants are perfect for me. I am learning and getting better with my plants though! Anyway, I wanted to include this DIY air plant holder from Sara at Birdz of a Feather, too, because it’s another great beginner’s crochet project and a fun way to personalize your space with color and plants! Just choose the yarn that matches your decor and have some fun!
9. Easy Spring DIY Wall Art
This wall art DIY is genius! Remember how we chatted about how botanicals are trending for 2022 home decor? (Read more on this post.) Well, here is a great idea from Fifth Sparrow No More to create some beautiful, budget-friendly wall art. If florals aren’t your thing, try an Audubon design or a cute bunny for spring! I can’t wait to try this one!
10. Bring in Fresh Flowers That Last!
I love this post from Perfecting Places about decorating and styling with fresh orchids. Orchids are very popular here in South Florida and while I love them, I don’t seem to do very well with them. This beautiful post was very helpful and has inspired me to pick up some white orchids and try them again in my big ironstone bowl! The wonderful thing about orchids are they last much longer than cut flowers, so check out this post and give them a try!
11. Another Easy Spring DIY Wreath!
I told you there would have to be a few wreaths! And since tulips are my favorite, I wanted to include this tulip wreath DIY from A Life of Balance. It is a great tutorial and even though I usually stick with neutral colors, I absolutely LOVE how she created this with lots of color. It would be so cheerful and welcoming on your front door!
12. The CUTEST Easter Treat Bags!!!
While I typically love using neutrals, Easter is the season that makes me love all the bright colors and cute decor. I have a special love for all the cute Easter bunny things and these DIY treat bags from 2 Bees in a Pod are just about the cutest thing ever! Since they are so simple to make, I think I’m going to make them for my class at school! They would also be super cute to do as little miniature ones for place settings for the kids’ Easter table! You’ll love these!
13. Try a Dried Floral Wreath!
14. Create an Easy Spring DIY Centerpiece!
Remember that black thumb problem? The Junk Parlor has the solution with a fresh, beautiful succulent centerpiece idea! This is really fun inspiration to repurpose a vessel that you love but haven’t used in awhile! You could also have fun thrifting for a cute vessel for your succulents and create your own, unique centerpiece! Get all the tips for succulents HERE!
15. Use Terra Cotta Pots for Easy Spring DIY Projects!
There are so many fun ways to use and decorate with terra cotta pots in the spring! That could be a fun blog post all by itself! For an easy spring DIY, though, check out this pretty DIY wreath idea from The Pond’s Farmhouse! Rachel used the cutest terra cotta pots to create a really fun and unique wreath. You could take this idea and adapt it to a candle ring or napkin ring too!
16. Make Some Speckled Eggs for Decorating!
I love to use pretty eggs in spring vignettes throughout our home! Even just piled in a pretty ironstone bowl, they add such a great seasonal touch! An Organized Home shared this great DIY for creating speckled eggs! Perfect to tweak with your own colors and make as many as you need to add to dough bowls, vignettes, and even tablescapes!
16. Use a Collection to Style Your Spring Mantel!
My friend, Ann, from Dabbling and Decorating always has such fun thrifted finds! You all know how much I love great vintage collections so I thought this spring mantel DIY was especially sweet! Ann shares some great tips about styling, especially incorporating thrifting finds. If you love spring and you love vintage, then this post is for you!
