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!
