Dollar Store & Thrift Store Spring Vignette

Happy Friday Friends!!

Spring is definitely in the air! We have almost one week of the time change under our belts and I’m loving the longer days already!! We’ve gotten the kids’ bikes and scooters out and that little bit of extra sunshine seems to give everyone an extra boost!

I haven’t decorated much for spring before, but blogging seems to have changed me a lot (in good ways!) and I’ve been adding some lil’ spring touches here and there…. and planning some more, too! Can’t wait to share some more springy DIY with you soon!

Dollar Store & Thrift Store Spring Vignette

 Today I’d like to show you that decorating for Spring doesn’t have to break your bank account! Earlier this year I shared my DIY Coffee Table and ever since my husband built it for me, it’s been soo fun to style and create different vignettes! Flowers always add such beauty and color to a room, but if you’re like me, you might not be able to afford flowers every week. So, the next best thing…. faux flowers!!! And a trip to your local thrift store! Come along and I’ll show you my finds!

I bought three bunches of faux tulips from The Dollar Tree. I usually buy our faux flowers from Michaels or from a dΓ©cor store in town, but last year I bought these same tulips in orange and got TONS of compliments on how beautiful they were! When I told one friend that they were fake, she could not believe it!  Nothing says spring to me like the color yellow, so these prettys came home with me!

The DIY Tray Makeover was $1 garage sale find last year and I love it still! The distressed finish is perfect and I love how it’s large enough to hold a variety of items! Last week I had an appointment and I got sidetracked majorly just a little bit because my favorite thrift store was just a round the corner! These two vases were exactly what I was looking for! The “clear” one is actually quite green but you can’t really tell in the picture. Who knew thrift stores had holiday displays?? Apparently they do, but I have never noticed that before! I found it on their all-things-green St. Patrick’s Day display πŸ™‚

I just love this white milk glass vase! I’ve done a little searching online trying to find out how old it would be. My husband was surprised when I came home with it… he said I needed to go raid his mom’s collection of vases. She has lots of these! Well, good to know! (*wink*)

    So pretty! I’m totally the same, I never really did much “spring” decorating until now! A blog will do that to you. πŸ˜‰ I LOVE having flowers out, too. And those tulips really do look real! Love it all, it’s the perfect spring vignette! Hope you have a lovely week, friend! πŸ™‚

    Very nice! It’s so fun to set up these little displays and I love using trays too! It makes moving things around so much easier. I am visiting today from Hit Me with your Best Shot today.

    After relatively nice temperatures we woke up this morning to a couple inches of snow. Mother Nature is playing tricks on us again. Your vignette is beautiful and it’s time that I get distracted by my favorite thrift store again!

    • Kendra says:

      Thanks Sandra πŸ™‚ It is snowing here as I write this… but definitely looking “springy” inside! Hope you score some great finds at your thrift stores! Thanks so much for stopping by!
