Spring is such a happy time, it’s like a breath of fresh air after a long, cold winter. At least it was cold if you live North of me. 🙂 That’s why spring cleaning is a thing. It’s a time for people to declutter, redecorate and start fresh.
Here are some ideas to brighten up your home for spring. And each one cost just a few dollars with this pile of adorable supplies I got at the Target Dollar Spot, a few more supplies from Dollar General and Wal-Mart and items I already had around the house.
1- Napkin Rings – Total cost $2 for 6-10
Supplies: Toilet paper roll, burlap ribbon ($1 at Dollar General), hot glue gun, chipboard embellishments ($1 for per sheet at Target)
Instructions: Cut the toilet paper roll to your desired thickness, cover the toiler paper roll ring with burlap and glue with hot glue gun, glue on the chipboard embellishment.
2- Place Cards – Total cost $1 for 3
Supplies: Cardstock, chipboard bunny clothes pin ($1 for 3 at Target)
Instructions: Print your guests’ names on card stock, clip the clothes pin with the card stock onto burlap ribbon tied around silverware.
*Extra Tip: You can create custom labels with cute designs and print them out yourself for free on Labeley.com.
3- Decorative Kitchen Towel – Total cost $2 each
Supplies: Kitchen towel ($1 each at Dollar General), felt embellishments ($1 for several felt bunnies & $1 for several felt carrots at Target)
Instructions: Attach the felt bunny, carrots or any desired decoration to the towel with a hot glue gun. You could also sew them on with bold color thread as a decorative detail.
4- Garland – Total cost $2
Supplies: Jute string, felt shapes ($1 for several felt bunnies & $1 for several felt carrots at Target)
Instructions: Weave the jute string through the felt bunnies’ ears. If you’re using shapes without holes like these carrots, you can punch a hole with a hole puncher to string the jute through.
5- Gift/Treat Bags with embellishments – Total cost $6 for 4
Supplies: White or other basic color gift bags (pack of 4 for $2 at Target), chipboard and/or felt embellishments ($1 per sheet or bundle at Target)
Instructions: This is so super simple and you can do it with just about any kind of cute embellishment you can find. I used a variety of chipboard and felt figures and hot glued them onto the bags.
6- Gift/Treat Bags with clothes pin tag – Total cost $3 for 3
Supplies: White or any color gift bags (pack of 4 for $2 at Target), chipboard bunny clothes pin ($1 for 3 at Target)
Instructions: Another cute and easy way to do gift/treat bags is to simply clip on a cardstock name tag with the clothes pin bunny. The added benefit is that the gift recipient can re-use the bag and the clip in the future for any purpose.
*Reminder: On Labeley.com, you can create custom labels with cute designs and print them out yourself for free.
7- Easter Basket – Total cost $3 per basket
Supplies: Any basic Easter basket (This purple one was $1.88 at Wal-Mart), chipboard embellishments ($1 per bundle at Target)
Instructions: Simply attach a chipboard embellishment to the side of the basket with hot glue.
8- Easter Basket Filler – Total cost $1
Supplies: Felt stuffed carrots ($1 per bundle at Target)
Instructions: You can add these adorable stuffed carrots into any Easter basket for a cute and whimsical touch.
9- Rustic Wreath – Total cost $8
Supplies: Grapevine wreath ($4.74 at Wal-Mart), burlap ribbon ($1 at Dollar General), felt stuffed carrots ($1 per bundle at Target), jute string, chipboard bunny ($1 per sheet at Target)
Instructions: I started by wrapping some ribbon around the wreath and tying it in various ways but I took it all off. I felt the beautiful rustic quality of the wreath didn’t need much on it. So I simply tied a burlap ribbon bow at the top and added the carrots and bunny.
Tip: You could do a different version of this wreath with a wire wreath base that you cover with burlap ribbon and more embellishments. Take a look at these previous posts to see how:
10- Picture frame – Total cost $1
Supplies: Picture frame, chipboard embellishments ($1 per sheet at Target)
Instructions: Simply stick chipboard embellishments onto your picture frame in any design you like for an adorable and easy spring look. If the embellishment doesn’t have a sticky backing, hot glue it on.
