Thrifty Spring Decor

Over the last couple of months I've been showing you pieces of my spring decor.  I thought you might like to see how it all came together.  Many of the pieces were either on sale, thrift finds, from the dollar store, or something that I already had. My total cost--$40!


  Click on the links for more details, including before pictures, costs, and tutorials.
 
 

Candle Stick (no link)
$2 Good Will find, spray painted dark brown and distressed.  In the picture there is wire wrapped around the candle.   The wire seemed like a good idea at the time, but blended in with the wreath so I've taken it off.  I might try wrapping wire around another candle sometime though. 
 
 
Dollar store plate and stand.  Total cost (including the vinyl) $3.

Spring Wreath
$9 Wreath (with coupon) and dollar store flowers.  Total cost: $12


(Paint Stick) Crate
Made with paint sticks for under $4.  Greenery was $10 total (buy one, get one free).

Bird's Nest
Thrift store silver dish, dollar store nest, and clearance bird, total cost:  $3.50.  I wrapped burlap around the books to cover the shiny gold titles.  There's a trend (which I like) to rip the covers off of the books, but since they are books that I read, I'm gonna leave the covers alone.
 
 
 
 
The shelf was a .75 thrift store find that I painted white.
I already had the frame and the lantern.

Made with paint sticks, trim I had, and glass from a dollar store frame.  Total cost: $1
 
 $2.50 Garage sale find that I painted.


I'm already making some fun changes to it for Easter and can't wait to show you!

What a beautiful setting. I have a similar shelf like the 'window shelf' except mine has a mirror in it instead of glass.

I think the plant makes it all work - makes it look fresh. Great job though, very well done!

Spring is finally here. I love springtime. It's my favorite season of the year. I love what you've done with the decorations. It fits perfectly well.

I like the bird's nest and the plate. So inspiring...

Keep up the good work.
