Make a pretty spring farmhouse floral box using a thrift store find and inexpensive faux flowers or fresh cut flowers. Keep your seasonal decor budget friendly with these tips.
I enjoy seasonal decor, but I don’t like to spend much money on new decor each season. Reusing items you have on hand or giving makeovers to thrift store finds is a great way to create seasonal decor inexpensively.

I’ve mentioned in earlier posts that I don’t usually use much pink in my home decor. But this year, I’m trying something new by incorporating pastel pink and other soft pink shades into my spring decor.
Spring Floral Box DIY
I used this thrift store find box for a spring piece a couple of years ago. One of the most budget friendly ways to create seasonal decor is to re-use items you have on hand in new ways. Give that old decor piece a fresh new look. It helps to start with items purchased at thrift stores to keep the cost low.
I liked the look of the Potted Faux Succulents, but I wanted to give it a makeover for this spring. I removed the clay pots and the succulents as well as the ribbon.
It needed a fresh coat of paint after having been stored away for a while. To remove the glue residue from the ribbon, I used my palm sander. I smoothed out the surface as well.
I refreshed the white paint and then decided to give it a blended paint look. To get the look I wanted, I brushed on gray chalk paint and then quickly used a lint free cloth to wipe away the excess and blend the gray into the white.
The finished paint job has a nice weathered look to it that’s great for either farmhouse or coastal style decor. I removed the divider piece that was inside the box this time. To remove it I used a small hammer and popped it a few times until it came out. The new look box was ready to use.
I’ve had these metal pails in my craft stash for a few years. I filled them with vase filler gems to hold the flowers.
Another tip for keeping seasonal decor inexpensive is to use a combination of Dollar Tree flowers and some that are better quality.
I love the small bouquets that Michaels often has on sale. I separate the bouquets and arrange them with the cheaper flowers.
To fill the box, I added it some greenery stems around the pails. This hides any gaps.
Paint a small chip wood sign and attach it with hot glue to a thin skewer. Insert the skewer into the florals to finish off the spring floral basket. I used the Hello Spring sign for a Spring Basket a couple of years ago. I added the skewer to it this time.
This can be used in lots of places throughout my home. Right now, it’s part of my hearth decor that goes with my Spring Mantel. It could also be used for a casual spring table centerpiece.
I’m enjoying the switch to pink decor for spring this year in our family room. Sometimes I get stuck in a decorating rut and don’t try new colors or styles. I’m going to do more switching things up for seasonal decor this year.
My best tips for inexpensive seasonal floral decor:
- Start with a thrift store find base.
- Remake craft items you’ve used before.
- Give the item a fresh coat of paint in a different color.
- Mix dollar store flowers with craft store flowers.
