Five Colorful Spring Craft Tutorials

by Susan Myers on March 22, 2013

Our thoughts are of Spring this time of year and naturally, crafting heads in that direction.  With that in mind, I wanted to bring to you five Spring Crafts previously featured on the Sitcom!

chrysanthemum mirrors recycled crafts

There are many versions of these colorful Chrysanthemum Mirrors circulating the internet.  The secret ingredient?  How about plastic spoons!  See them now, don’t you?  This is a fun project that I did with the whole family involved and a ton of plastic spoons from the dollar store.

handmade decorative soaps tutorial

These easy to make Decorative Soaps are actually another dollar store item.  Look difficult don’t they?  You will be totally surprised.  A simple craft to put together, you can complete a whole basket of decorative soaps for ready for giving in just an hour!

vintage seed packet art

I’ve always been a huge fan of Vintage Seed Packet Art.  This tutorial shows the basics of how I painted the design on these two stools.  Like this, but cannot paint?  Consider printing out vintage seed packet art that can be found on the internet and grabbing some Mod Podge!  Same effect; beautiful furniture!

ruffled grocery bag tutorial

Love the bright springtime look of this Ruffled Grocery Bag?  Another simple tutorial.  If you can sew a straight line, you have this!  This sunny bag started out as a regular old grocery bag!  Now it is a beautiful accessory.

creating batik fabric with crayons

And finally, one of my most popular tutorials, Batik with Crayons.  When I originally created this tutorial, I used a process documented in a vintage craft magazine.  Since then, I have tried the project again and used a deep dish flat griddle as a double boiler in order to keep the crayons melted.  A very successful option.  This project is actually a great craft for older children to try!  And the final results are very colorful!
