With the arrival of spring, we also want to decorate our home accordingly. You can decorate the door, the walls and the table, inviting the spring mood into your own four walls. At the same time, the decoration of the windows should not be neglected. Of course, the easiest way would be to arrange a few beautiful vases of flowers with early bloomers on the window and ready. But if you want to make an original window decoration spring itself, you will find exactly the right idea with us.
DIY window decoration spring to hang
A beautiful idea, which is similar to the classic “cut flowers in vase”, we have here ready for you. In this case, the flower vases are not placed directly on the windowsill, but hung above it. For hanging, you can consider different methods. For example, the vases can be hung on simple hooks with the help of fixed strings. Or you can make a kind of garland from vases.
Hanging flower vases
You can use hanging flower vases to effectively display some beautiful cut flowers at the window. For this you need some clear glass bottles without caps, some wire and two hooks. If the bottles have any labels, they can be quickly and easily removed with some warm soapy water .
First make a loop at the end of the wire, which will later be used to attach it to the hook. Then leave 10-15 cm free and wrap the wire 3-4 times around the neck of each bottle, leaving a few centimeters of space between them. Ideally, the distance between each vase should be the same.
* The exact number of glass bottles depends on the dimensions of the window and the distance you leave between them.
The whole garland should be slightly longer than the length of the window, so that the bottles can hang a bit. In the last step, glue the hooks on both sides of the window frame and hang the garland. To finish the window decoration spring, fill the bottles with some water and arrange some beautiful spring flowers.
Hanging mini wreaths
Wreaths are a wonderful decoration for the front door . They look beautiful and invite guests into the house. However, door wreaths also look great indoors.

Here are the necessary materials for these hanging mini wreaths with green branches.
- small thin metal rings
- artificial green branches and moss
- white feathers

To conceal the wire, simply wrap some moss around it and stick a feather in between. Finally, tie a string to the metal ring to hang the hanging decoration. Whether on a hook or directly on the curtain rod you decide yourself.

Make your own spring decorations for windows
You like it colorful in the spring? This colorful decoration idea will spice up any plain window and immediately lift the mood inside. You first make a mobile that serves as a translucent curtain in front of the window. Pair the hanging decoration with some colorful flower pots with succulents that will decorate the windowsill below. It is important to match the colors of the flower pots with the colors used for the mobile. Below you will find simple instructions on how to make this beautiful spring decoration on the window itself.
Tip: You can paint simple clay pots in any colors with acrylic paint and use them for this decoration idea.
These materials are necessary for the colorful spring mobile:
- Yarn in white, blue and yellow
- Decorative ribbon
- Felt balls
- decorative thread or fishing line
- Tension rod that fits the window
The first thing you need to decide is how many chains of felt balls are needed for the width of your window. Calculate with a distance of about 20 cm between the chains, if you want to make a mobile similar to the example. Then measure the height of the window and cut enough decorative threads.
Tie a knot or two at one end of the string and thread the other end through the needle. Then thread the felt balls on the string, leaving a few inches of space between the balls (you can do this after you hang them). Knot a loop at the other end of the string and slide the tension rod through. Repeat with the rest of the felt balls chains.
Adjust the tension rod and insert it into the window. Distribute the chains across the width of the window. Now push the balls to the desired position (if not already done). For the hanging strands, first cut three pieces of yarn twice as long as the window. Fold them in half and tie them to the tension rod as shown in the picture above. Then braid the strands and tie a knot at the end. You can tie the braids of yarn between the ball chains. For the final touch, you can tie some decorative ribbons here and there on the tension rod.
Although the colorful mobile also looks great on its own at the window, it looks even more beautiful in combination with the flower pots. Simply arrange them on the windowsill with some space between them and the colorful window decoration spring is ready.

Now we will show you how to make beautiful suncatchers yourself from small embroidery hoops and washi tape. The suncatcher (or still known as suncatcher) is a kind of window picture that lets colorful light through when the sun shines. This creates beautiful light shows on the window. Although suncatchers are usually glued directly to the window, in this craft project they are hung. Here are the materials you will need:
- small embroidery hoops
- decorative ribbon for hanging
- Washi tape with spring motifs
- Baking paper
First, cut a circle out of baking paper with a diameter about 2-3 inches larger than your embroidery hoop. Then stick washi tape all over the baking paper circle, creating any pattern you like.
Separate the two rings of the embroidery hoop. Place the decorated baking paper on the inner ring so that the design is centered. Then place the outer ring on top and slowly press it down. Twist the screws to close the hoop. Then turn the embroidery hoop over and cut off the excess paper around the hoop with scissors.
Finally, tie a matching ribbon to the top of the embroidery hoop and hang the suncatcher on the window.
