Remember the day I flooded my kitchen?
Well as if that wasn't enough to do in one day but I also thought that would be a great day to put out my spring decor. It was a great idea too because spring and all it's bright and cheery colors put me in a happy mood.
Want to hear the best part about my spring decor?
The only thing I bought was that big bunny and I bought him before Valentine's so I don't count that ;)
I got him at Home Goods for 12 dollars and I already had the eggs from my kids easter baskets. Doesn't it look like a jar of huge jelly beans?
I spray painted a old plate my Mom had given me and used my Silhouette to put a "Spring Chicken" on it.
Since these tissue rosettes from The Idea Room took me so long to make for Valentine's, I decided I would use them with my spring decor too. I just painted a candlestick I had green and added it to the top. I think it looks like a flower.
This tea set is very special to me, my grandma gave it to me, it was given to her 50 plus years ago for a wedding gift. I added the green plate behind it so it would stand out better. Oh and that book it is sitting on is from my husband's grandfather. Going through those old family heirlooms is a cheap and unique way to decorate your home and make it your own.
I had a bunch of spring scrapbook paper leftover from last year so that is what I used to make this banner. I just wish I would have made the letters a little bigger.
This is quote by Lady Bird Johnson that I found that I think describes Spring, a season full of hope and new beginnings.
Using vinyl cut by my Silhouette, I applied it to a old frame I had in my stash.
I already had that blue mason jar and the hydrangea stem was part of some flowers I had for my wedding.
You might remember my bunny plaque from last year.
I made these yarn eggs. I did them a little different then that site though. I used multi-colored yarn and instead of cutting small pieces, I did one long piece and hung them to dry with a clothespin on a wire hanger.
Here it is all together. I never can get a good picture of this room, it doesn't get much natural light.
My other tips for decorating for holidays on the cheap are to get vases, frames, and plates in a couple colors that can be used for several holidays and interchange them.
For example, Red , Aqua, and Green are my favortie colors to use.
Red can be used for Valentine's Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Fall, and Christmas.
Aqua can be used for Winter, Easter and Summer.
Green can be used for St. Patty's Day, Spring, and Christmas.
