I was sitting in my sunroom the other day and started to notice the tips of the trees starting to bud with bright green.

That means that Spring is coming – which brings me so much joy!

Spring and Fall are my two favorite seasons and also my favorite to decorate!

Each year, I drag out all my decor from previous years in the hopes to reuse something.

First off, if you know me by now, then you know I LOVE to save money.

Some call it being cheap, but I like to call it being smart and economical.

So I’m always finding ways to reuse an item with a new and different approach.

I thought it would be fun to take one item and show you 3 quick ways to style a Spring Garland.

I love visiting Target to see the latest decor from Hearth and Hand or Studio McGee.

This 6 Foot Hazel Garland was just the cutest and it was a great deal too for such a realistic garland.

Plus, I think I could use this year round – not just for Spring.

So first, I styled it as it’s intended purpose – a garland for my Dining Room Hutch.

It brought beautiful color to my painted hutch.

It looked so pretty against my tarnished silver – which is one of my favorite things to collect!

Adding just the right pop of spring color brings a big ole smile to this face!

Six foot is a great length for garlands. Not too short to be used as a typical garland, but also not too long to limit what else you can use it for.

So I loved this first way I styled it and how it looked on this hutch of ours.

But let me show you another way I LOVE to repurpose my garland.

I dug out an old grapevine wreath form and wrapped the garland around it.

Isn’t that the cutest?

I love how the leaves pop off the wreath form and add some color to the wall.

I hung it on my DIY animal cage lid turned into a faux tulip crate that I have hanging in my eat in kitchen.

And it adds some pretty texture to the wall.

I just used the twist ties that held the garland to the cardboard and wrapped it around the twig wreath.

It’s super easy peasy and took me only a few minutes to assemble and hang.

It looks perfect hanging above my DIY Vintage Corbel Shelf.

But let me show you one more way I like to repurpose my garland.

And it’s so simple, you’ll be wanting to buy me a cup of coffee!

I took an old enamel bowl and filled it with the garland.

Simply wrap the garland into loops and twist the leaves until you get the look you want.

Then I plopped a battery lit candle in the middle and boom shaka laka – you’re done!

Isn’t that the easiest thing ever?

Now I wouldn’t recommend a real candle. Fire next to faux branches would be no bueno, so the battery operated ones are super safe!

I placed the bowl on coffee table in my sunroom and it’s a perfect way to add some touches of greenery to your decor.

So if you are looking for ways to repurpose your old spring decor, I hope this gave you some ideas!

I’m all about finding budget-friendly and economical ways to create a beautiful space and this is one of my favorite ways to save money.

So friend – you got this! Go dig out that old decor and see how you can repurpose it this season!
