Decorating for spring with Kleenex Expressions

“This post is sponsored by Kleenex, but all opinions are 100% my own.”

Y’all spring is coming! It is spring break this week for Jay and the weather so far is NOT doing us wrong! #fistpump It has seriously put me in the mood to decorate our home for spring, which is normally one of my favorite seasons to decorate for. It is normally my favorite because the colors are beautiful. The pastels and even the bold colors and all of it mixed together just create a beautiful scene everywhere. This time of year, my mantel, my bar ledge and even my kitchen table, is blooming with beautiful spring colors, but this year… sigh this year so far that is NOT the case. I am having a serious case of decorating block. Maybe, it’s because I can’t go shopping for spring décor just yet so I’m having to throw things together that I already have around my home, but I’m coming up with basically nothing. The few things I have been able to come up with I love though.

I got the Live Laugh Love shadow boxes {um, aren’t they totally screaming my name ;) } at cvs. I love hitting up cvs for little things to decorate with. The adorable oval box with the sweet little bird on it is a Kleenex box! When I walked into Kroger and saw that I grabbed it off the shelf so fast that people probably thought I was crazy, along with Kleenex expression box you are going to see below. It blows my mind that I can decorate with Kleenex boxes and not what to hide said Kleenex boxes. It’s allergy season and we constantly need it within reach so, being able to display it beautifully just rocks my socks all kinds of off. Where was I? Oh yes, the orange and green things you see in the vases are water balloons. Yep, you read that right. ;) The yellow watering can I bought last year from I don’t even remember where, but I’m trying to figure out if I want to keep it up there or not.

I also put an itty bitty bit of spring décor on my table. I love candles and I have them all over the house and I always have some on my kitchen table, I think they go perfect with that adorable Kleenex box! #ineedallthekleenexexpressionsasap

Now, here is my plea. I have an extremely long mantel and decorating for Valentine’s day was no problem at all because I already had SO many red things around the house and I was automatically able to buy a few things. For spring though, I’ve only bought two things so far and my mantel is seriously suffering! Here is the décor I have up so far, but I really, really want to fill all those empty spaces and even put a wreath on the fireplace above the mantel. Sooooo, my plea for you is… HELP me fill all those gaps. What should I put there? What can I DIY to put there or hell even buy. They just need to be filled before I go crazy.

Also, see those little eggs in the vases and the ones hung in three places on the mantel. I’m fixing to show you how to make those. If you have a circuit, you probably don’t need this DIY, but if you have to do it the long/hard way, then this tutorial is for you. Although, it really isn’t that hard, it’s just time consuming.

You will need:
Adhesive backed Vinyl
Scissors
Construction paper
A pencil
An egg printed out that you can trace

First: Cut out the egg you printed out and trace it onto the gold dotted vinyl.

Next up: Cut the egg out of the vinyl, peel it and stick it onto the construction paper. This is such a hard DIY isn’t it? ;) Do this with either as many eggs as you want or until you run out of vinyl.

Last: Cut around each of the vinyl eggs you put on the construction paper and then wa-la, you have sturdy, cute little eggs to put wherever you like. I haven’t figured out where I’m going to put the rest yet, but I’ll be sure to share when I do!

How are you decorating for spring this year?!
