5 DIY Spring Décor Ideas on a Budget (Part #3)

Painting your Front Door & DIY Spring Wreaths

Your Front Door is the first impression of your home, but are you happy with how it looks? Does it look outdated? Is the paint cracking off? Is the door stained and super dirty? How can you make it look nicer on a budget? Painting your front door may seem like a daunting task but it is really easy and super rewarding! The best thing about paint is that you can change it at any time if it doesn’t suit your style anymore. 

 Take a 220 grit sanding sponge and scuff up the existing paint/finish on your door. Clean up the dust well and tape off the surrounding trim/areas of the door that you do not want to be painted. You can use your choice of paint but it must be durable to withstand the high traffic and weather conditions. Paint any detailed areas with a brush and paint the flat surfaces with a roller. We painted 3 coats of "Fusion Mineral Paint" and it has held up beautifully for over a year now.

Hanging a wreath on your door is the perfect way to brighten your entrance and leave a lasting impression on visitors. You can purchase a generic wreath at your local Dollar-store (or Craft Store) and fill it with little items found inside & outside of your home!  

Decorated Easter eggs can sit firmly in the wreath with a ribbon bow atop. You can poke holes into the backside of the decorative eggs (or other decors) and slide a thin wire cording through the holes to secure them into your wreath. If you grow flowers or tulips, consider gathering them in various colors and adding them to the wreath with some pinecones and leaves before placing the wreath on the door for a nice fresh look.

If you want to keep your door free from decor, this DIY Wreath can be laid flat as a centerpiece for your table or hung in front of your favorite window! If you create your wreath using this blog, please tag us or use the hashtag “#HandmadeHomeCo” and we will feature it on our Instagram stories!
