DIY Spring tasks to make your home POP

DIY Spring tasks to make your home POP

Add pretty spring flair to your home with our ideas for centerpieces, table settings, door decorations, displays and more.

1 Bottle bright

Use a box of food coloring to add playful punch to an array of bud vases.

Fill assorted vases or recycled jars and bottles with water tinted to match a variety of flowers. You can also use white blooms (such as affordable supermarket daisies or carnations), but remember what you learned in elementary science class: Those thirsty petals will take on the hue of your water!

 

 

 

2 Creative tulip display

An antique birdcage perfectly supports a collection of colorful tulips; the crossing wires hold up the top-heavy blossoms. Any container that fits inside the cage will do; just fill it with water, place it in the center and add flowers. Tuck in a bit of moss if you want to disguise the container.

 

 

3 Colorful boots

Fill colorful rain boots with coordinating colors of tulips or other spring flowers. Use florist water tubes to keep the flowers fresh. Tie on a pretty ribbon for the finishing touch. Resources Kelsey Kamik Kids rain boots; color: pink; size: 2 (toddler).

4 Seasonal joy

Greet guests with a front-door display of seasonal joys, such as this vintage watering can. Set floral foam in the can to secure the stems. Fill in with spring accents, then wire to door.

 

5 Shaker vase

It doesn’t get more charming than this. Use a salt or pepper shaker as a bud vase. Siberian squill stems are the perfect size to fit through holes in the cap. If stems don’t fit, just skip the cap.
