Spring Forward! 15 Creative Ways to Incorporate Seasonal Home Decor

Updated: May 17


The days are slowly but surely getting longer and the sun is beginning to shine. After a long winter, spring is just almost here. So it’s time to stow away the last remainders of your winter decor and celebrate the arrival of a new season. Think lush flowers, pops of bright color, or a new crochet project that brings spring into your home.

We’ve consulted the experts for their best ideas to make incorporating seasonal home decor this spring a breeze. Whether you’re living amongst the cherry blossoms in Seattle, WA or enjoying the beachy breeze in Miami, FL, you don’t want to miss these 15 creative ways to bring spring into your home.



1. Seasonal home decor begins at the front door. Want to grab the attention of your guests this spring? Boost your curb appeal and start with your front door. A fresh coat of navy or sage paint will make a bold statement. Then, change your hardware so that it complements its brand new color. Finish with a lemon and foliage wreath. – Brenda Jones, Piper Classics


2. Add pops of color to your space. For springtime projects, stick with your overall color scheme of your home, yet use little touches of color for pops. We still want your home to reflect your tastes and style. A simple wood sign with a little distressing is cute, but add a bright colored ribbon to it and discover the difference that little touch makes. – Meg Daves, Makeable Crafts

Flowers, use dried or fake, clear vase filled with Potpourrie & yellow ribbon!

3. Bring in spring color and scents with a dried flower and potpourri centerpiece. Pour colorful spring potpourri into a clear glass bowl or vase, tie a ribbon around several taller dried flowers and greenery stems pushing them into the middle of the filled vase. Finish it off with another ribbon wrapped around outside of the glass. – Shelly Tschupp, Painting Arts N Crafts


4. Spring is the perfect time to add fresh decor to your home so why not crochet a motif and sew it onto a cushion or pillow that you already own? It’s a great and inexpensive way to repurpose things you already have in your home and add a brand new look to your room too. You can find the crochet pattern for the Charleston Cushion here. – Hannah Cross, HanJan Crochet


5. Furoshiki cloths and folding techniques make for quick and versatile decorative touches to your home for spring. The cloths are applied by folding or knotting for quick, no sew applications. They are typically machine washable so you can easily remove and clean them as often as you like. Fold and knot Furoshiki cloths around tissue boxes or to cover throw pillows for a fun look that is quick to change through the seasons throughout the year. – Rachel Barnes, Oak Blue Designs


6. Centerpieces are a great seasonal addition. Add a little boho flair and color to your centerpiece by adding a DIY macrame statement piece and some eco-friendly Cavalini napkins. Macrame is an easy and affordable DIY option to add a unique panache to your table, while Cavallini cotton napkins will never fail to brighten any setting. – MUSEjar


7. Tablescapes bring the spring. After a cold, dreary winter, a refreshing tablescape is a great way to quickly add that wow factor and bring some brightness into your home. Combine clear glass and soft whites with touches of elegant gold and pops of color to add light and space. Don’t be afraid to mix and match for an eclectic look – choosing a variety of heights, textures and shapes will create a visually interesting display. Consider combining items like a simple, wide clear vase full of bright pink tulips with a few slim gold candlesticks in staggered heights with white tapers or pillars, and a colorful sculpture or two for a stunning room transformation. – Elisheva Liberman, CEO of My Swanky Home




8. Upgrade your dining room linens. Use fun fabric to DIY your own dining room linens, like a set of placemats to liven up your family dinners. These are reversible and feature durable solid and print canvas. You can sew a set of these in one afternoon, so they can be ready for meal time. – Jennifer Moore, Editor-in-Chief, Sewing Report



9. Spruce up your candle decor. Everyone loves to dress the bath for a spa-like treatment and with our easy and versatile pattern, Seascapes Candle Cozy/Ring, you can add a calm ambience to the bath by dressing up simple candles in practically no time at all. Crochet a cozy that envelopes the candle, or just the ring for an even simpler idea that’s easy and practical. – Cylinda Mathews, Crochet Memories


10. Flowers epitomize the spring season. I love to bring spring into my home using DIY paper flowers and felt flowers. It’s a great budget-friendly way to decorate your home for spring. – Natalie, Neli Design


11. Bulletin boards are great seasonal home decor. My favorite go-to design project for spring is creating an easy No-Sew Embroidery Hoop Bulletin Board; it’s a simple and fun way to freshen up your space each season. Using mini craft clothespins and seasonal ribbon (or twine), I like to include some of my favorite spring photos from previous years as well as inspiring quotes to set the mood for the new season. Fresh plants or flowers complete the look and new essential oil diffuser scents add an extra element of spring to the air (literally). – Shana Sutton, Our Sutton Place


12. Swap out throw pillows and blankets. My favorite way to incorporate seasonal decor is with throw pillows. My bedding is a simple while comforter that allows me to decorate with fun, seasonal pillows and throw blankets. It always gives my room a fresh new look for the season without having to spend a fortune on new decor. Another tip is to use pillow covers that you can swap out – this helps save space. – Kelsey Haver, Kelsey Haver Designs Blog



13. Bring the outside in. Fill apothecary jars with real or faux spring flowers and add faux moss or greenery, or you can place a faux bird nest with speckled bird eggs on a cake plate topped with a glass cloche. You can also swap out the accent pillows on your couch to ones with a bright, spring color or pattern, or you can change your candles to ones that have a nice floral scent. Any of these simple ideas will bring the seasonal elements of spring to your home. – Brandi Ketaily, Home Harmony Designs


14. Incorporate handmade spring decor. We have the most beautiful springs where I live, so I’m always anxious for the season to arrive. I love to crochet, so once springtime rolls around, I love making handmade spring home decor items. Some of my favorite crochet spring decor items are a spring crochet garland to hang over my fireplace mantel, and a springtime crochet wreath to hang on my door. These items not only brighten up your home but also and give it a lovely handmade touch. – Tiffany Griffin, Beautiful Dawn Designs


15. Wreaths are great decor year-round. Evergreen shrubs, like boxwood, are a simple way to inject fresh spring decor into your home (even before springtime flowers appear). Collect several clippings to make a sweet petite boxwood wreath that can be hung on the front door, a kitchen cabinet, or layered over a mirror. Fresh wreaths will instantly breathe spring life into your home. – Lora Green, Craftivity Designs
