Then place three tulip bundles in front of you in a triangle shape with the stems facing away from you. Use floral wire to tie all three bundles together.

Tie and glue tulip bundles to wooden strip

Place the bundles on the flat side of a stir stick and secure them with the hot glue. Be sure to attach them to the bottom half of the wooden stick, as you will keep adding more bundles and greenery. Continue wiring and gluing the bundles until you are satisfied with the shape of the carrot.

To make the wreath more visually interesting and hide any gaps that have appeared in the tulip bundles, add additional artificial flowers. Using wire cutters, cut out individual flowers so that each flower has a stem about 10 inches long.

Spring decoration for garden and balcony

Our last few ideas are super for decorating the garden and balcony. The first one involves turning some jars into vases and hanging them on the clothesline. For this, hangers for each glass can be made from wire and hung directly on the line. The clothespins have a more decorative function in this decoration idea, because they alone can not hold the glasses with water. However, they still serve to hold the individual jars in place so that they do not slip.

In spring it may be colorful and so is this idea for outdoor decoration. It is also perfect for all upcycling fans, as it involves turning old cans into colorful pots. These are the materials needed for this project:

  • empty tin cans of any size
  • napkins with colorful patterns
  • rotary cutter (scissors also work) and mat
  • napkin glue, e.g. Mod Podge
  • foam brush
  • white spray paint
  • clear lacquer spray
  • drill with steel bit
  • small stones
  • earth
  • plants

Spice up metal can with napkin technique

Before you put the napkins on the tin cans, paint them white with the spray paint. The paper napkins are very thin and the planters will look better with a white background.

Next, cut each napkin to the size of the can you will be pasting. For larger cans, you may need to use more than one serivette. Then remove the top layer of the cut napkin.

Now cover the entire can with the decoupage glue. Carefully place the paper napkin on top of the tin and press it down with the foam brush. Wrap the napkin around the can until it is completely covered.

DIY spring decorations outside jazz up old cans and plant them

Once the glue has dried, paint the decorated tin cans with at least 2 coats of acrylic paint. This will protect the outdoor planters from the elements.

To plant the tin cans, first drill holes in the bottom of the cans for drainage. Then place a layer of rocks on the bottom, fill the tin with potting soil and insert the plants.

With the colorful pots you can create a flower staircase or decorate the balcony railing.
