Most of us already have Spring on our minds.
Our weather has been very mild and I had to refrain myself from decorating the house for Spring too early. :)
Although I already have a few ideas in mind, in this post I wanted to share some Spring crafts
I have done in the past using supplies from Dollar Tree.
These little Spring cloches will add a nice touch to your home. They are easy to make and very economical.
All you need is is an old knob, a glass plate, a candle holder from Dollar Tree and any spray paint you like to make one just like it. To decorate them I used a little moss also from Dollar Tree and some ceramic baby rabbits I already had. You can also use a little bird or nest. So many choices!
Total cost is $2.00.
And for one more dollar you can also buy one of their small glass candle holders, paint it and glue it
to the glass dish to make it a little taller.
Great way to display your little Spring items without spending a fortune.
This next idea was a very fun project and, actually, a Pottery Barn copycat.
All I did was buy a bag of Easter eggs and letter stickers at Dollar Tree and I did hang them from
a flower branch using a small piece of ribbon glued to the eggs.
Another easy Spring project you can make are these cherry blossom branches.
I started by spray painting some branches from my tree on the front yard.
Of course, I used my favorite paint, oil rubbed bronze.
I bought tissue paper from Dollar Tree and I selected two different shades of pink.
To make the flowers, I made myself a template with cardboard paper.
I cut all the tissue paper in 4x4 pieces, placed the two different colors together and using the template
I started to cut my flowers.
When you are finished, overlap the two colors together, pinch and twist the ends, add a little drop of hot glue
and start attaching to your branches.
And this is the final product.
Total cost of this project was $2.00 for the tissue paper.
This next project was a little more time consuming.
Spring mason jar dioramas.
I already had the tree jars but you can use any old mason jars you have around the house. The first thing I did was paint the lids and I did add some little wood knobs I already had, which I painted apple green and glued to the lids.
I had purchased three glass candle holders from Dollar Tree a long time ago and using E6000 glue, I attached them to the jars. I did let them dry for a whole day, just in case :)
And then came the fun part, decorate them!
I put some moss on the bottom of each jar and added some little birds I already had.
I made a tiny banner out of craft paper in the same colors as the birds and I attached everything to two small pieces of branches from the boxwood bush that sits on my flower bed.
I did not want to use any glue inside the jar, so I am not going to lie, it did take me a looong while to get it to fit tight. Everything kept falling to the bottom of the jar.
Total cost of this project was zero for me since I used everything I already had.
I hope this post gives you a little inspiration to start making some easy and very economical Spring crafts.
Spring time will be here before we know it. I really don't have a plan yet on how I will decorate our home for the new season this year. We will see what I come up with. :)
First I have a couple of projects to finish. I am redecorating our front porch and also trying to create a guest room.
Got my hands full! :)
Thank you all so much for your visit.
See you soon!
