Get into the spirit of spring with these 5 projects
Spring plants and flowers will soon add a splash of bright colors to the great outdoors, and it’s a great time for you to spruce up your home and apply a subtle makeover. These unique spring craft projects, simple enough for even the most amateur artist, will add seasonal flair to your home and garden.
Rain boot planters
It is said that April showers bring May flowers, so what better way to welcome those flowers than by letting them grow inside a set of rain boots? If you have an old set of rain boots that you don’t use anymore, then consider forgoing the purchase of traditional planters to use those boots instead. It will add thematic flair to your garden or porch without subtracting any additional money from your wallet.
Teacup bird feeder
For a spring craft that you and the birds in your yard will both enjoy, try making a bird feeder out of a tea cup set. Using a tea cup as the base for your feeder and the saucer as an overhead covering, you can create a unique craft that serves a practical purpose. This bird feeder will fulfill the role of any traditional bird feeder, all while adding a little bit of that spring spirit to your yard.
Mason jar soap dispenser
Mason jars are used for a variety of different craft projects. One of the most creative and useful is the Mason jar soap dispenser. Country Living suggests using a small drill bit to create a hole in the center of the Mason jar lid. After that, fill the jar with soap, secure a soap dispenser pump to the lid and enjoy this beautiful new addition to your bathroom.
If you want to bring a little bit of spring into your kitchen, one of the easiest ways to do so is by creating a set of simple flower magnets. All that this spring craft requires is some artificial flowers and a few small magnets. Simply glue the magnets to the back of the flower, and—“voila!”—you have an artificial garden inside your home that even those with allergies can enjoy. Place these flowers on your fridge to add pizzazz to your kitchen.
Jelly bean tree
If you want to add some bright spring colors to your home, but you don’t quite have the green thumb necessary to maintain a garden, then you can always look into creating a jelly bean tree. Most of us can never finish all of the jelly beans in our Easter basket anyway, so why not put those leftover beans to good use? Simply glue the jelly beans to the ends of various twigs and branches and place them in a pot or jar. It will look like you have a plant that naturally produces candy. A home decorated with these simple spring crafts is one that will complement the natural beauty of spring.
