Happy Wednesday, all! Who else is in the midst of spring cleaning? Or decorating for the season? I’m kind of doing both simultaneously. Since I decorate with a neutral palette and pieces that typically stay up year round, I’m able to get away with only adding or taking away a few seasonal touches here and there. My go-to seasonal decor for spring is faux flowers. They work in any room, and they never die – bonus! I randomly created a simple DIY farmhouse-style spring centerpiece for our dining room table last weekend, and I thought it was too cute not to share.
Maybe I’m just tootin’ my own horn, but I couldn’t be more pleased with how this turned out!
I found the galvanized tin at Hobby Lobby (for only $10!) several months back. It’s actually a utensil caddy, but I knew I’d be able to use it as some sort of centerpiece. Then, after stocking up on faux hydrangea bushes from Jo-Ann Fabric, this all came together on a whim. I used the high-tech method of bending and snapping the branches apart to get individual, smaller stems. Worked like a charm, let me tell ya. 😉 From there, I filled each of the six caddy compartments with two stems to make sure it looked extra full. It’s the perfect size and accent for our dining room table!
Since I enjoyed the effect of this DIY centerpiece in the dining room, I decided to do the same in a few other spots. Like I said, faux flowers work in any room of the house and are the easiest way to bring the season inside.
Now, brace yourselves – I ACTUALLY DECORATED WITH SOME COLOR. I know, I know. Big step for me.
I think that peachy, salmon pink is perfect for spring and works with the farmhouse-style decor. It’s nice to have the little pop of color against the all-white kitchen!
I found this $5 galvanized metal watering can in the dollar section at Target to also use as a centerpiece. It has taken me forever to figure out how to decorate that round kitchen table. The simple burlap runner (also from the Target dollar section!) with the faux floral centerpiece makes a statement but is still easy.
I’m certainly not the most crafty or imaginative person out there, so a simple DIY farmhouse-style spring centerpiece is a big accomplishment for me! Even better yet is that this all was done on a budget and with items I already had around the house. My spring fever is real, so I’m happy to be surrounded by reminders of the season.
