We’re all for using color to express yourself whether it’s what you wear or how you decorate. Each of your near and dear have their own set of favorite colors. Why not celebrate everyone you love with spring crafts in all the colors of the rainbow?
Get your tools ready and head out to your nearest crafts store for supplies. Here are DIY spring décor ideas to fill your home with pops of color.
Rainbow Spring Wreaths
Don’t these rainbow wreaths make you want to dance all day?

We love how this DIY rainbow doormat by Jennifer Perkins welcomes guests with a punch of color. It’s so cute that it might find its way in your bedroom instead of outside your front door.
Here’s what you need:
- One door mat (in a solid and light color like beige)
- Fabric spray in different colors
- Painters tape
- Utility knife
- Poster board
Cut out a rainbow stencil (half a circle) from your poster board. Don’t forget to make sure that your stencil fits the doormat. Divide your stencil into six stripes because that’s how many there are in a rainbow. Cut out each stripe then tape the sections to your doormat. Spray paint each section in a different color. You can stick to rainbow colors or come up with your own spectrum. Wait for each section to dry before starting on another.
After the paint has dried turn your mat over. Tape the largest stripe to the mat to serve as your cutting guide. Take your utility knife and slice out the excess material. If the kids are helping you with this project, make sure you handle this part of the process. Turn the door mat right side up. Voilà! Welcome to the House of Color!
Rainbow Soap Pops
It’s springtime! For some, that means starting work on their garden. Soon, the kids will be spending their weekends outdoors. We doubt they can say no to washing up with these DIY rainbow soap pops by Jennifer Perkins. Neither will you.
Here’s what you need:
- A bowl (microwave-safe, of course)
- Rubbing alcohol
- Glycerin soap, cubed
- Soap dye
- Spray bottle
- Popsicle molds
Melt cubes of the glycerin soap in the microwave and then add dye. Make sure to follow the instructions that come with the soap. Jen recommends melting the soap in small batches according to color.
Pour the first layer of colored soap into the mold. Allow to cool and harden then spray with rubbing alcohol. Repeat the process with the other color layers. When you’ve reached the fourth layer insert your popsicle stick into the mold. Continue adding the other soap layers until you’ve filled up the mold.
Pop the molds into the freezer for 30 minutes. Then take them out and give them a quick dip them in boiling water. You’re all done.
We hope these spring craft ideas give you (and the kids) hours of creative fun. Share this with fellow DIY lovers to spread some rainbow love.
