Springtime is all about celebrating the world coming back to life after a cold, dark winter. Spring products at CreateForLess are the perfect way to bring the colors and excitement of the changing season indoors with bright florals, pretty pastels, and Easter creations. These craft supplies and projects will be sure to get you out of the winter blues and ready to craft your way through spring. Check out these Think Crafts projects for spring crafting inspiration.
Use pretty pastel embroidery floss like the Sublime Stitching Frosting pack to create hollow eggs to use as centerpieces, place cards, on a wreath or string them on a garland. We decided to take this craft to the next level with pastel colored baker’s twine. It adds a nice striped look to the eggs and makes them look even more festive! It’s a messy craft, sure to delight children and adults alike. Want some more ideas? Try painting some Styrofoam or paper mache eggs and wrapping the string around them. You can use contrasting colors, or keep them monochrome.
Check out the materials we used from CreateForLess to create your very own version of this craft! Pictured above are Aunt Lydia's Baker's Twine, Mod Podge and Balloons. After trying this craft out with these products I do have a few tips myself. First of all, make sure to use more string than you think. You'll want your project to still be hollow, but the more string you have wrapped around the balloon, the more defined the shape will be. Make sure your Mod Podge and water mixture is thick, too, that way it won't spread all over the balloon. My last tip is to run your fingers under the string to unstick it from the balloon. If it's stuck to the balloon when you pop it, the string will deflate with it! Try the tutorial out for yourself over on the Think Crafts Blog!
Don’t let the warming weather stop you from crocheting! Create some flower coasters with Sugar n’ Cream yarn and bring the beauty of your garden indoors. There are plenty of spring color options that will remind you of the season and can help protect the wood surfaces throughout your home. Use them to dress up the place settings for your Easter meal, and keep them around to use with your cold drinks as the weather heats up. They’re so easy to create, you can make them for every season!
We used the above materials to create our very own coasters. Pick up some CPE EZ Felt, Sugar'n Cream Yarn, a Size H Crochet Hook and Fabric Glue to get started! This tutorial is great for the beginning crocheter who is ready for a challenge. Do your research on the different stitches used, and you won't have a problem. My best tip is once you're gluing to the felt, make sure to have a few heavy things on hand so your coaster can't roll away from the felt before the glue drys. Head over to Think Crafts for the pattern and get to crocheting!
Don’t forget to create Easter goodies! These mini Easter baskets are perfect for holding treats and giving away little gifts to loved ones. Covered with spring paper, you'll love these pretty pastel eggs more than traditional dyed ones.These baskets are the perfect way to deliver fun Easter candies like jelly beans! They make fun decorations and wonderful place holders with little treats on the inside. You can hang them from a branch to use as a centerpiece and fill them with whatever you would like. They would also make great alternatives to plastic eggs hidden during Easter Egg hunts!
To make our own, we used Craft Pedlars 4 inch Paper Mache Eggs, Mod Podge, and an Authentique Paper Bundle. I had a lot of fun creating this project. Follow the instructions to the T and don't worry about imperfections. This Authentique bundle I used has a pretty little chevron strip at the top of every page. I cut off a few and used them for coordinating trim and for the handles. I love the way it looks! Follow the instructions over at the Think Crafts Blog and have fun!
