Spring makes me happy! Even though we have had a very warm winter here in Alabama, I am so excited to brighten my home with Spring decor. My blogger besties and I are bringing you some Spring Inspiration this week. There are 8 of us and we live in different areas of the United States so we are experiencing very different weather but we are all getting our homes ready for Spring.
This week, I worked on my front porch. I love making my own front door hangings because I like to have unique decor and I just like to make stuff!
I am loving tulips and they are so popular right now so I knew I wanted to use tulips on my front door. Fresh tulips would be beautiful but not practical for every day. If I am having company, I could always pull these silk tulips out and replace them with fresh tulips, but since no one will be coming on my front porch any time soon, I will use the store bought tulips. You have to agree, the fake flowers now are so much better than they were years ago.
I purchased a long and narrow basket at the Thrift Store and I always keep burlap ribbon on hand. Tulips were found at Hobby Lobby using my coupon. You do know that if you forget your coupon, you can google Hobby Lobby coupon while you are in line and show the cashier the coupon on your phone.
To make this hanging, I just sat the tulips into the basket. I ran the burlap ribbon through the holes on the sides and hung it onto the door hanger. Super easy!
The Urn Makeover
Now, my urns were looking pretty rough this year.
I spray painted my urns using my HomeRight Spray Shelter.
I really wish I had purchased a shelter years ago. So many times, I have spray painted something outside and had grass and leaves blow onto it ruining my paint job.
I spray painted the urns dark gray. I moved my lanterns from inside to the front porch.
I have totally updated my front porch for Spring and without spending much money. I wanted to spend as little as possible so that I will have the money to spend on plants for the yard and vegetables for the garden. Don’t forget to check out my best friends blogs for some gorgeous inspiration.
