We’re counting down the days until March 20, the first official day of Spring! And with a new season upon us, you know that that means – it’s time to add some Spring cheer to your home. There are two spaces within the home that are incredibly easy to decorate, can change with the seasons, and make a huge impact. You guessed it! It’s your front door and windows. While everyone appreciates wreath decorations, sometimes you want go beyond the wreath and decorate your home with something fresh and unique. Today, we’re sharing creative décor ideas for your windows and doors that will leave your home looking and feeling fresh and bright.
The Flower Basket
When filled with fresh flowers and foliage, flower baskets can look absolutely gorgeous whether mounted on your front door or placed along your windows, inside or outside your home. Of course, faux flowers are more practical to work with but they can be tricky to achieve a realistic look. If you do decide to use faux flowers, consider using faux flowering branches which tend to look more realistic. You can even create a rustic appeal by simply repurposing a vintage watering can into a spring oasis.
The Chalkboard Sign
With chalkboard paint available for anyone to purchase, it is easy for you to paint the interior of a tray, frame or cupboard door to make a unique and functional door or window décor sign. Post a “welcome” message, an inspirational quote or even your house numbers. Seamlessly integrate the season or even your mood by easily changing the content on the sign. Let the mail delivery man know “Shhhh, the baby is sleeping” so he doesn’t ring the doorbell. The possibilities are endless with this decoration.
The Letter Monogram
Honour your family name in a fun way using monograms. Giant letters have become quite a trend over the past 5 years and don’t seem to be disappearing anytime soon. Make your own by purchasing the oversized letters from your local craft store, or cut one out using a pattern, piece of hardboard and a jigsaw. To add an extra touch of personality, cover your letter with creative material such as moss, buttons, fabric, shells, glass, or paint. This fun decoration can either hang from your front door or you can display it through a large front window.
The Window Curtains
Not so much an idea for doors, but the curtains you hang on your windows can have a great impact on your home. Spring is the time to clean your windows and decorate them with charming curtains, bringing more light and air into spring home décor. Use your favourite bright colours along with pastel, soft and neutral shades to create a pleasant and healthy environment along with a happy mood.
The Window Sill
As Spring is slowly gaining ground outside, it’s time for it to starting working its way into your home too starting with your window sill décor. Although it may be too early to start gardening outside, you can showcase your green thumb with beautiful, small plants in different types of canisters. Add some delicate and bright flowers to create an organic, natural beauty spot for your home.
