This spring living room decor post contains affiliate links, but nothing that I wouldn’t wholeheartedly recommend anyway! Read my full disclosure here.

One of my favorite things to do is decorating and redecorating our living room shelves. Whether I’m just itching for a new look or I’m redecorating them for a season like fall or Christmas – I always have so much fun dreaming up a new look.

Although I love the challenge of redecorating the shelves, you may find it overwhelming, so I summed up all of my favorite tips and tricks for how to decorate shelves here. Hopefully, after you take a look at those tips, you’ll be armed and ready to take those concepts and decorate your shelves.

Today I’m sharing how I redid our shelves for our spring living room decor. I decided to go with a really modern boho look with lots of preserved moss in clear glass vases and vintage books. I added in lots of vintage books because I always have a bunch on hand around our house because I love using books as decor!

Didn’t they turn out so fun? Do you see the little sneak peek of our DIY plant pot cover too there by the stairs? I had so much fun with that DIY.

Easy DIY Moss Vase

The moss vases couldn’t be easier. All I did was get clear glass vases (mostly from the Dollar Tree) and fill them partway with preserved moss, some dried florals like these natural ones, and even a few pieces from a bunch of peach faux flowers.

Moss Letters from Sheet Moss

One of my favorite things I added to the spring decorated shelves in our living room was the sign for the moss letters. And they were so simple! Here’s how I made them:

  • Write words on the back tissue paper lining that comes with the sheet moss with a Sharpie marker.
  • Outline the letters so it’s about 1 inch wide.
  • Flip the tissue paper over and tape it to sheet moss — this step is crucial so the letters will be going in the right direction when you cut them out.
  • Cut around the letters.
  • Tape to plain sign — I used the backside of a Christmas sign that I’ve painted white. It’s perfect because I can use it year-round since I use both sides of the sign…genius, right?
  • Lean on shelves.
  • Voila, the perfect spring living room decor with moss letters.

I chose to write out the word “grace” but you could really do anything… spring, grow, home, love…you name it.

I thought grace was the perfect reminder about what the spring season, and specifically Easter, is all about.

I’m obsessed with this vintage art I snagged at a yard sale this summer. The colors are perfect on these spring shelves.
