Hello, friends! I am so excited to share how I created a budget friendly Spring centerpiece for my table this year. I used some creativity to use some materials I already had on hand, re-purpose some decor I had stored away, and add some items I picked up at Dollar Tree!

Today I am excited to join some fellow bloggers to bring you an Easter Pinterest Challenge hosted by Cindy at Country Road 407. We’ve all created some Easter decorating ideas to help you decorate your home this Spring! If you’ve come over from Virginia Sweet Pea, welcome!
Lisa from A Simply Styled Nest created this gorgeous Easter Spring centerpiece that is so beautiful! We were so inspired by her creation that we wanted to create something similar this Spring. You can find the full list of the Easter Pinterest Challenge at the end of my post!
I wanted to create a budget friendly Spring centerpiece based on Lisa’s that was affordable, easy to put together, and beautiful. By using a basket that I already had on hand, some painted candle holders, greenery and faux flowers that I had leftover from previous projects, and some faux flowers from Dollar Tree I was able to stay on budget.

How To Create A Budget Friendly Spring Centerpiece
First I decided to use a basket that I already had on hand. This was a Christmas gift from my mother-in-law and I love the color and texture of it! If you don’t already have a basket on hand, you could use a tray or a large wood bowl.
Then I placed this adorable mossy bunny that I found at Hobby Lobby in the middle (similar one here), along with a couple of painted candle holders and Dollar Tree candles to add height to the centerpiece. The varying heights creates dimension and interest, and I love the contrast of the white and green.
Next I made my first layer by laying down the greenery first. I had some faux boxwood stems on hand that I purchased at Target (from the dollar spot) a few months ago and had been using in other areas of my home. This first layer of greenery creates a base for placing the rest of the flowers and decor on top of it.
After adding those elements, I added some white flowers from Hobby Lobby, some of these faux peonies that I recently used for my daughter’s birthday party and some white faux petunias that I picked up at Dollar Tree.
TIP: Having neutral colored artificial flowers is a budget friendly way to create more with less. By keeping the color neutral you can display them in different ways year round, and that way you don’t need to buy different colors for every season!
Last year I found some wood eggs that I loved displaying on my tiered tray in my kitchen, and this year they found a home on my centerpiece! I thought they looked adorable sprinkled throughout the greenery near the green bunny. The natural color of the wood ties in with the basket and contrasts well against the greenery!
I purchased my table runner at Target last Spring and I love it so much. Here is a similar one from the Hearth and Hand line that I’m loving for Spring!
The only things that I had to purchase for my Spring centerpiece were the white petunias ($2), lighted candles ($1 each) and the green bunny ($4.79). Everything else I had on hand and repurposed/reused for this centerpiece. Having a stash of artificial flowers is a budget friendly way to decorate each season. I love being able to use items I already have and giving them a new life by using them in different ways!
Another thing that is great about this type of centerpiece is that it is easily removed from your table. Our table gets a lot of use with 4 kids, so being able to remove the centerpiece quickly and easily has been so nice!
Tips for decorating on a budget:
- Take note of what you already have that you can use / re-purpose for your project. For my centerpiece I used greenery, a basket, and candle holders that I had in other areas of my home. (The candle holders started as a completely different color!)
- Shop at discount stores / use coupons for items you need. I found some beautiful artificial flowers at Dollar Tree, and have also purchased floral stems for 50% off at Hobby Lobby. (If the flowers aren’t on sale at Hobby Lobby, make sure to use your mobile 40% off coupon!) Thrift stores are a great place to look for decor. I also try to check the Target clearance end caps weekly for home decor items! Here are more ideas for how to save money!
- Buy decor staples that can be used all year round. I have items in my home that work throughout every season, and can be changed up to work for different holidays. For example: instead of buying a red Christmas basket, try using a plain natural basket that can work all year round. You can just add a Christmas ribbon to it or Christmas decor inside of it to make it work for your decor! This is a great way to use items for more than just one season.
I hope you enjoyed my budget friendly Spring centerpiece! I loved putting it together this year to bring some Spring into my home.
