Happy Springoween! Yup, it’s official – I’m making ALL the holidays and seasons Halloweeny this year. Zero apologies. Halloween is every day!
Today I’m turning my attention to spring. It’s been a dreary winter for everyone, and I’m finding myself anxious for more sunshine, green trees and blossoming flowers.
But how do you make such a bright and cheerful season more like October 31st? With some fun gardening and clever DIY projects, of course. While round two of my pumpkin patch is high on my list, I’m also finding inspiration from some of the ideas in this post.
Here are 10 Halloween DIY projects perfect for Springoween!
Have old trick-or-treat pails you aren’t using anymore? Or maybe ones that are damaged…but you’ve hung on to them because you just can’t let go? Use them to make a concrete planter for your home!
I have a little collection of craft pumpkins I keep meaning to do something with…but never seem to find the inspiration. This succulent planter created with a craft pumpkin just might be the solution I’ve been looking for!
And as long as we’re talking craft pumpkins, here’s another fun idea. Trade out some of the fall leaves for spring flowers, and you’d have a cute little spring garden inside a pumpkin!
Would you believe this skull is made from foam? Just a bit of chalk paint totally transforms it from cheap to stunning. Add a few spring flowers, and you have a piece of decor that would live in my Spooky Little Apartment all year long!
This DIY caught my eye for its greenery. Just add a few faux plants to cute buckets. Then create a few flying bats, and you have the perfect Halloween DIY project for spring!
Can you tell I love mini Halloween planters? They’re just so much fun – and so clever, like this coffin planter perfect for your coffee table.
Love rose gold? Take some cheap mini pumpkin pails (I know you’ve been hoarding them…because I have been too!) and spray paint them rose gold – or any color you love. Then add a little plant and place them around your house!
I see these DIY projects on Pinterest a lot and always love them, but I especially love this take that includes cauldrons! Wouldn’t this be fun to add to your garden all year?
Right now, I have a plain silver skull on my coffee table…but I feel like it’s begging for a succulent makeover. This one was made using a plastic skull that was spraypainted black – yet another Springoween DIY you could easily customize to your home and tastes!
Need a little more black in your life? Buy a few fake potted plants, spraypaint them black and viola…insta-Halloween you can use all year long!
