We made it! The snow and colder days of Winter have finally bid us farewell and we welcome the warmer days of birds nesting and rain clouds with open arms. Is it wrong to say I miss those slower, cozy days of winter? Browsing the airwaves for some easy Spring craft ideas, I came across the following gems to create on a rainy afternoon or a sunny day outside.
Paper Plate Bird’s Nest
Can be created with found feathers, yarn or sticks. Your feathered friend can be painted, made out of fabric or snazzy paper.
Spring butterflies! Cut pretty paper, accordion fold them and add pipe cleaners (or ribbon). Hang individually, or make a garland of them!
Flowers in a Pot
How does your garden grow? Using sturdy card as the backing, you can apply, fabric, felt or paint for the flowers on this beautiful Spring display.
Stained Glass Flower
Using black paper for the outline and wax paper as the backing. Stick brightly colored tissue paper onto an endless possibility of shapes – flowers, animals, kites, faces. Makes a gray day in Spring feel lovely and bright.
