How to Decorate with Primitive Décor This Spring

Primitive décor makes homes feel cozy and guests feel welcome during any time of the year. There’s something nostalgic about primitive décor. Decorating with this theme will certainly make any house feel like home.

Primitive décor comes in all shapes and sizes, from large barn stars to small keepsakes. Even a couple of primitive picks can add a whimsical touch of country to your home.

Now that we’re heading into the spring season, you’re likely dusting off your shelves and taking down your winter décor theme. Unfortunately, this will leave your shelves, nooks, and walls quite bare—especially if you don’t have any décor to replace it with.

If you’re searching for how to decorate with primitive décor this spring, you've come to the right place. Not only does Primitive Star Quilt Shop have some ideas to get your home looking cheery we also have the products that will pull your look together.

Popular Spring Primitive Décor Items

When it comes to pulling together country charm for your spring primitive décor, there are certain products that hit the mark and make you think about spring. These items include:

Tin primitives: Tin primitives can add a sense of spring to your primitive décor, especially when you incorporate metal items such as a water pitcher. Most people think of the growth of plants during the spring season, and tin primitives can be the perfect spot to showcase primitive flower and primitive picks.

For example, you can use Primitive Star Quit Shop’s Emily Pitcher or Farmhouse Pitcher and fill them with primitive picks. This is a popular primitive décor technique and is easily to transition between seasons—just simply swap out the pick.

Farmers Market Milk Can with Eucalyptus

I love the Farmer's Market milk can with Seldom Seen eucalyptus bush.

Another great way to bring some metal into your home decor is to consider adding our half round metal wall buckets. These come displayed on a rod that hangs on the wall. The buckets can be filled with greenery, floral picks, rolled textiles or other spring favorites.

Berry garlands: Berry garlands are wonderful for any season, but you can really lighten up the atmosphere in your country home with gold berry garlands. A creme pip berry garland is also an excellent choice, which adds a neutral pop of color that is perfect for spring.

To take your berry garlands a step further, consider choosing a lighted pip berry garland. These beautiful garlands can serve as the star of the show of your décor and light up even the darkest corners.

Prairie curtains: Prairie curtains give the feel of a beautiful spring day in the country. Perfect for small windows, our prairie curtains have a variety of textures and patterns that will make your home feel more cheerful.

I recently added our Natural fringed tobacco cloth long prairie curtains to my dining room. I just love the romantic spring look they provide.

These curtains are hung using small tension rods. Whenever possible, I like to keep my woodwork exposed when hanging curtains.

Since our windows are very long and only about 25" wide, the curtains have a nice full amount gathering on the curtain rod. This is one of my favorite curtain options I've used in this room over the years. 

Changing up your window décor is one of the easiest ways to celebrate spring, and you won’t be disappointed with the choices you find at Primitive Star Quilt Shop.

Primitive pillows: Pillows are another quick and easy way to dress up your home for spring. Our Embroidered Bee pillow reminds us that spring is in the air.

And I love the message.

We could all use a reminder about choosing kind words each day. They truly are sweet to the soul.
