The sun is out, the birds are chirping– there’s no better time to get crafty than in spring! Here are five DIY crafts you can make to ring in the warm weather and blooming flowers.
Printed Seasonal Pillows (The Happy Housie)
You’ll be shocked at how effortless these lovely printed pillows from The Happy Housie are to make. In no time you’ll have an affordable and adorable piece to celebrate the florals of spring– less-than-ten-dollars affordable, to be exact. All you need is a simple white pillow and some printer transfer paper. You can transfer any design of your choosing onto your pillow, although the instructions include some free printable flower designs courtesy of the blog.
Giant Paper Flowers (Sweet Red Poppy)
This tutorial teaches you how to make large decorative flowers for any space or occasion– with or without the help of a smart cutting machine such as a Cricut. Regardless of whether you make them by hand or by machine, these are an easy way to create a seasonal focal point for a room or decorate for a springtime party. You’ll find patterns for both large and medium-sized flowers, as well as leaves, in the instructions– as well as advice on what cardstock to choose for your project.
Hanging Flower Chandelier (The Sweetest Occasion)
These floral chandeliers might have a short lifespan, but that’s part of why they’re perfect for parties or any other events where you want something unique and lively for decoration. If you want to make a more permanent fixture, you can also try your hand at this project using faux flowers, although what makes it so special is its use of real floral stems as a beautiful conversion piece for your next gathering. Despite its extraordinary appearance, however, it’s deceptively simple to make. All you need are a handful of supplies, including the flowers and an embroidery hoop.
Mason Jar Herb Garden (DIY Inspired)
While outdoor gardening is a great way to pass the time in the spring, you don’t need the time and space required to start a full garden to enjoy the benefits of growing your own food. In fact, you can start simple and grow herbs that aren’t just cute to look at but tasty, too, thanks to the help of DIY Inspired’s step-by-step tutorial. There’s both an article and video form of the instructions, and while the video features parsley, mint, and sage, you can use this method to grow a variety of herbs.
Pine Cone Flowers (Taste of Home)
If you think that fall is the only time for some cute pinecone crafts, think again. This super-easy DIY from Taste of Home uses pinecones to craft a colorful spring centerpiece. If the time of year makes tracking down pinecones hard, of course, they’re easy to find at crafts stores as well as online. Once you’ve got a hold of your pinecones, break out the acrylic paints to cover them in vibrant spring colors, such as the faux flower design shown on the website.
