Super Chic Spring Crafts

Does anyone else have Spring fever?  I can here the birds singing loudly outside and I just want to start skipping in the sunshine…..when it comes!  Even though I can see snowflakes slowly floating down in the midst of all that singing, I can’t help but to think about all things Spring.

Even if I can’t have the warm weather where I am at, at least I can start creating some Spring decor to start setting the mood.  Then I can begin putting away my snowmen, snowballs and other Winter decor and replace it with some of the brighter colors of Spring.

The first item I will pull out is my pine cone Spring planter that I made last year.

You can see that even rustic items from nature can look bright and cheery when placed in a colorful container.  I used vintage game letter tiles to add a touch of whimsy.

Here are some more Spring crafts to brighten the day:

These two adorable burlap bunnies by The Little Green Bean are just the right thing for some fun Spring decor.  Burlap, twine and wire are all that is needed to make these.

Brown bag bird's nest craft by Alpha Mom.

I like Spring crafts that incorporate bird’s nests but I was especially intrigued by this particular craft.  The actual nest was made from recycled brown paper bags.  Click on the photo to see this fun tutorial!

And, as long as we are on the subject of birds, I should bring back my birdhouse craft project.  These are quick and easy to make with birch logs and either old signs, license plates, or rusty tin sheets for the roof.

crepe paper spring birds

So…the only thing left is the birds!  These crepe paper birds are fairly easy to make with the step by step instructions.  A vase full of branches makes the perfect backdrop to perch these creations on.
