30 Spring Craft Ideas

Spring officially sprung back in March.  But with super cold temperatures, it was hard to really welcome spring in at the time.  Mother nature is funny that way I guess.  Of course, that didn’t keep from cruising Pinterest and day dreaming about warmer temperatures and bright spring colors.  I found so many great ideas that I decided to make a collection of 30 spring craft ideas so that you can be inspired too.

30 Spring Craft Ideas #crafts #roundups #spring

Now some of these will make great 30 minutes crafts or things while a few will take a little longer.  No worries though because the weather is finally warm enough that you actually might want to be outside doing crafts…or anything really!

If you make any of these {or any Spring crafts really}, be sure to come back and share them with at the Pinworthy Projects Party that happens here each and every Friday.

Get inspired for Spring with these amazing craft projects.

Where It All Started- Silhouette Cameo Project

I was asked to make a unique wedding shower gift and once I looked online for some inspiration I came up with this fabulous pillow!! I just LOVE how it turned out!DSC_0198-1I used my Silhouette Cameo just like I use with a lot of my other projects.  This was a project made with freezer paper, paint and fabric.

I bought some fabric from JoAnn Fabrics in a tan color, almost like a Muslin.  Then I had the regular paint at home, which I just added fabric medium to it.  I use a flat headed sponge brush to paint it and freezer paper stencil cut out from my Silhouette.     photo 1 (10)You cut the negative image out on freezer paper, and you mirror the image.  You then iron the freezer paper onto the fabric, with shiny side down, and it temporarily sticks to the fabric your ironing it onto.  This creates a stencil and you can paint it how you wish! I’ve did this quite a few times with the other pillows I have in my Etsy Shop too.   photo 2 (10)Just brush the paint on, and make sure the whole area is covered.  Don’t put too much on or it will take forever to try and it might seep through the edges of the paper and your project won’t turn out right. photo 3 (4)Tada!  After the paint dries, you peel off the paper and you have your project!!  I thought a little red in the heart would be perfect for this pillow.  The pillow is meant to represent where the couple met each other.  I know they will love it! I can’t wait to get it listed on my Etsy Shop! DSC_0200-1

Baby Shower Gifts

With a few new babies coming from friends and family, it’s the perfect opportunity for me to use my new multi-needle embroidery machine and make those cute gifts I’d been dying to make for awhile.  With my single needle, it’s not as easy to make these so I had shyed away from making bigger named projects just because it’s so complex.  But no longer will I do that!! I LOVE my new Brother Entrepreneur PE-650e!

I made this matching set for my old co-worker/friend who is due with a little girl around Thanksgiving.  We are throwing her a little shower today with some co-workers and it will be fun to see all my old friends!DSC_0217-1

The gown was ordered and I appliqued her name onto it.  I found this fabulous fabric at Hobby Lobby, so bright and cheerful!!  I made her a matching bib with the pattern that my aunt mailed me when I was pregnant with my son 9 years ago!  It’s a great pattern and perfect size for babies!!  And homemade is WAY better then store bought!  I also purchased the little knit hat and put her name on it too!  Perfect for hospital pictures!DSC_0221-1

Making this tag blanket was super easy.  Just use a 12″ x 12″ piece of fabric and minky backing, along with various ribbons and stitch it together.  Babies love these things!DSC_0222-1 DSC_0224-1

made her this beautiful gown out of a onsie and fabric.  I saw a few patterns on Pinterest and kinda made up my own.  I didn’t take pictures, but maybe next time.  It has elastic on the bottom just like the regular gowns.  Matching bib with minky on the back and a personalize burp cloth for Miss Sophia!DSC_0226-1 I can’t wait to see her open it today, which is why I set the blog to publish later on so she won’t see it til she opens it at the shower!!!  Congrats Matt & Amanda!

Where you right, Mr. Groundhog?

So if Spring is on it’s way earlier this year, where is it?  Most of us northern folks are getting anxious to step outside and enjoy the warmer weather, and as spring approaches, we all wish we could be on the beach somewhere, or enjoying a great baseball game with family and friends!  Detroit Tiger’s are a favorite baseball team in our family and we enjoy going to the games and just baseball in general.  There is nothing quite like a night game when the weather is amazing and your favorite team is winning!  Maybe a couple cold beers in your hand to help with the heat will do also! 🙂 

I made these cute keychains that go perfect for the Detroit Tiger’s lover in your life!! Check them out on my Etsy Site.  https://www.etsy.com/listing/125389588/detroit-tigers-acrylic-keychain?

And if your just wanting a cute little gift for yourself or maybe even your bridal party?  How about monogrammed keychains? Message me for discounts on large orders.  

Now here in our area of Michigan, it’s supposed to be 50’s this weekend.  That’s like a hot spell for us! I hope the snow melts and we can semi-enjoy the outdoors this weekend!  Enjoy your week!
