Hey there, Sweet Friends, today I’m going to show you a project I recently created that reminds me of Spring. I know it’s only February, but aren’t we all itching for Spring? This project adds the perfect Spring Color Palette to the home.
I like to decorate the home with lots of whites, creams and neutrals and I love adding in a pop of color. This project really brightens up the home and gives it a look of Spring.
Do you incorporate a Spring Color Palette in the Home? Are you looking to give the home a pop of color resembling Spring? Do you like to decorate the home with colors or do you prefer whites, creams and neutrals? Leave a comment and let me know.
For me, I find that decorating with a neutral color palette allows other areas and items in the home to pop, especially when they are colorful. This project is so colorful and really stands out.
Decorating your Home for Spring!
Colors remind me of the garden? Secretly, I am a little obsessed with gardening and in years past I spent a lot of time out there. I love yellow Sunflowers and purple Morning Glories and orange Gerber Daisies, just to name a few.
I love this time of year, when the bulbs start to emerge from the ground.
In California, you can drive down the highways and see patches of yellow and white Daffodils coming out of the ground.
I’ve got Spring on my mind and today I’m going to show you how I created a project that gives the home the perfect pop of color it needs. This project reminds me of Spring.
If you watched my HomeTalk TV Episode last month, you saw the creation of a Mirror with a Floral Decal. Well, I started a new project (You Tube video coming soon) and this one is colorful. Just as colorful as my paint brush mobile.

Don’t forget to join in on March 2nd and again on March 9th for the episodes on HomeTalk TV. The episodes are a secret, but I’ll give you a hint…..they are all about Spring!
Aren’t the colors in this mirror just amazing. Can you find the beautiful blue bird?
Sometimes, I like color, usually I prefer it in the craft room or in the garden. I’m kind of a neutral girl to be honest. But this mirror, hung in the family room, ready to welcome Spring into the home, is a wonderful addition.
How do you decorate the home? Is the indoors full of color, like a garden?
Now, let’s get started with the project tutorial.
Materials needed for the “Botantist Journal on a Mirror!”
- Mirror – here is a link to one on Amazon
- Botantist Journal Decor Transfer from Iron Orchid Designs
- Paint from DIY Paint, unless your mirror is already painted the way you want it.
Instructions for creating the “Botanist Journal on a Mirror!”
Step one: Find a mirror the size of your decor transfer.
Step two: Cover the mirror and paint the frame if needed.
Step three: Clean the mirror.
Step four: Choose a Decor Transfer that fits the mirror. If needed cut the Decor Transfer into pieces.
Step five: Remove Decor Transfer from packaging. The Decor Transfer comes on a white backing.
Step six:: Hold the Decor Transfer in place while you remove the backing. The Decor Transfer is very sticky so once it touches the mirror, it will stick. Be sure your position is correct before you remove the backing.
Step seven: Use Frog Tape to hold the Decor Transfer into place.
Step eight: Using scrapper provided, scrap transfer onto mirror.
It might take long but it’s worth the effort!
Step nine: Once the whole Decor Transfer has come off the backing and onto the mirror, remove the top plastic cover.
Step ten: Use a soft cloth to burnish the transfer on the mirror.
Step eleven: When complete, hang your mirror on the wall and enjoy.
Tip: For cleaning your mirror, only use a soft cloth to clean the mirror. Do not use chemicals as they will destroy the transfer.
