Favorite Spring and Easter Crafts Roundup
I know many of you are knee deep in winter thinking that spring is a long time away. Here in the south we’re already seeing temps in the 80s and our trees are budding like crazy.
It’s putting me in a great mood and motivating me to work on a few make ahead projects. Today I’m sharing four of my favorite DIYs that are fun to work on, no matter what the weather outside is doing.
Not all projects turn out as good as I envision, but every once in a while I have one that turns out better. That’s why I’m still in love with this moss covered bunny that’s so cute, I just can’t stand it!
I have an easy tutorial for you to follow, just click on my post, How To Make A Bunny Topiary. I’m guessing if you enjoy crafts you’ll probably have most of the supplies on hand. To see how to style a bunny topiary click on my post, Simple Easter Centerpiece With A Tiered Tray.
If you’re not the type that goes overboard on spring decorating, but you still want to be creative, make a wreath. I find adding just a few spring touches really makes our home feel so cheerful, and wreaths are such a pretty way to welcome everyone entering your home.
See that little carrot garland on the wreath? You can also make a longer one to decorate a mantel or shelf. To view the step by step tutorial click on my post, Spring Burlap and Carrot Wreath.
The fun part of crafting for me is figuring out the best way to approach a project. After a few failed attempts at painting eggs with watercolors, I came up the next best thing.
My solution is painting spring florals first on watercolor paper, and then making photo copies. For complete details click over to my post, Decoupage Watercolor Floral Easter Eggs.
I can’t think of a better way to anticipate spring, than gathering some natural elements from the backyard to use indoors. Time to go outside and see what you can collect to create a one of a kind nest.
Don’t forget flowering branches and vines to use as camouflage. I’m not sure if that’s what birds think about or not, but it’s fun to imagine. Click over to my post DIY Foraged Bird Nest for a list of supplies.
Be sure to follow Thistle Key Lane on Pinterest, where the boards are up to date with inspiration that you can use right now!
Thank you so much for visiting today. I hope you’ll find a fun project to work on while you’re waiting on spring to arrive.
