I recently gave my wall planters a spring update and I’d like to share the process with you today!

It’s that time again where the seasons are changing, the weather is warming up and we’re starting to see green again! I love spring. Fall used to be my favorite season, but over the last few years, it’s gradually changed to spring.
I love seeing new life in bloom. It’s such a picture of our relationship with Christ. Moving from the dead of winter to the life of spring just as we move from being dead in our sin to having life through Christ when we surrender our lives to Him.
I am overwhelmed by how often God shows us who He is and how much He loves us through His creation. How He gives us a picture of how our relationship with Him should look like in the way trees blossom and produce fruit. The way they have to be pruned to produce more fruit. How weeds have to constantly be pulled so they don’t grow up and choke the plant.
Romans chapter one talks about how God is known through His creation. Verses 19-20 say, “…since what can be known about God is evident among them, because God has shown it to them. For His invisible attributes, that is, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen since the creation of the world, being understood through what He has made. As a result, people are without excuse.”
To me, while God’s attributes are always known, they seem to be especially so in the spring. As Easter approaches and we look to celebrating Jesus’ death and resurrection I hope you know how much He loves you. That he died for you while you were still a sinner.
You don’t have to get your life together before you turn to Jesus. He wants you as you are whether you think you have it all together or you’re at rock bottom and broken inside. And if you ever want to know more or have questions, please feel free to message me! I’d love to hear from you.
Spring Wall Planters
So back to the wall planters! I purchased these at the end of the season last summer from Hobby Lobby. I used them for décor in my work office and you can see how I decorated them for fall and for Christmas. After Christmas, I just removed the red berries and added more greenery to give them a winter feel.
Now that it’s almost spring they were ready for a refresh!
You will need:
Spring floral sprigs of your choice in various lengths
Floral Foam block
green floral picks
I made another trip to Hobby Lobby when their florals were 50% off and chose these floral sprigs. I purchased a pink, a white, and a yellow one.
I started by removing the Christmas sprigs and putting them in a Ziploc bag for next Christmas.
I was able to reuse the green foam that I had purchased back in the fall, but the next step would be to add in a foam block and it may need to be cut down to fit the planter. I used a knife to cut mine down. Now you’re ready for the new flowers!
Start separating the sprigs and cutting them down to various lengths with the cutters. You need some small, some medium, and some long ones. You may need to wrap them with green floral picks before inserting them into the foam. I had some I was able to just push in and some that needed the picks.
Start by placing the longer stems in the back and spacing them out evenly.
Then add some that are medium in length and position them in front of the longer sprigs, offsetting them.
Next came the smaller fruit-looking (not sure what to call them?!) fuzzy sprigs that I placed in front. Super easy!
Then you just use the extra to fill in any empty spaces and give a full look. I wish I had taken more pictures at this point, but you’re really just filling in the sides and the middle with the extra florals.
I love how this spring refresh gave these planters some new life! They have made my office so cheery and I’ve received several compliments from my co-workers about them!
Well, as always, thanks so much for taking the time to stop by! I hope you enjoyed this fun DIY! I’d love to hear from you in the comments! Have a blessed day!
