Simple DIY Farmhouse-Style Spring Centerpiece

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.

Are you a fan of faux flowers? What’s your favorite way to decorate for spring?

    So my husband is the type that loves to have fresh flowers around the house, but one of the reasons that I hate it so much is because they always die and start to smell! It seems like faux flowers would really be the easiest way to have pretty arrangements around the house without having them die a week or so later! I love how you added some color with the pink as well! So pretty!

    Karly, these look SO good!!! I’m still struggling with figuring out our spring centerpiece this year. I love faux flowers throughout the house to add pops of color. Jared’s allergies wouldn’t tolerate real ones so we enjoy the fake ones 🙂

    I’m definitely a fan of Faux flowers because I have terrible allergies so I don’t have flowers inside the house. I actually just did a post today sharing some spring inspiration home decor. We’re currently redoing our living room and I want a rustic/farmhouse feel. Lol
