When Is the Best Time to DIY Spring Projects

In general, it is best to start planning and gathering materials several weeks before spring’s arrival. This will give you plenty of time to complete your projects and enjoy the beauty of spring.
That said, it’s your home.

7 More Ideas for Spring Crafts and DIY Projects
And if those ideas weren’t enough to get the creative juices flowing, here are 7 more ideas for spring craft DIY projects.
Collect flowers and press them between heavy books for a week. Once dried, glue them onto plain coasters or other decor items, and seal with a layer of clear varnish.
Dried pressed flowers can also be used in homemade soaps, candles, and potpourri.
Use old spoons, forks, and other kitchen utensils to create unique plant tags in the garden. You can even paint them with bright colors so they can be seen more easily in garden beds.
Build a birdhouse from scrap wood you have laying around. Paint it and add decorative elements to make it unique.
Mosaic Stepping Stones
We used to make these all the time when the kids were younger. You can buy those pre-made kits to make it easier.
But in general, gather broken ceramics or tiles and arrange them in a pattern on the surface of plain concrete stepping stones in some cement.
Create a wreath using a wire frame, floral wire, and fresh flowers and greens. You can also use silk or dried flowers for a long-lasting wreath.
If you have an old wreath hanging around, clean it up by removing the old decor and then tuck in, tie on, or hot glue the flowers and greens on.
I made a beautiful wreath from my cut flower garden with this technique last fall.
Plant a small fairy garden in a container to enjoy indoors. This is a fun and easy project to do with kids or grandkids.
Houseplant or Spring Flower Container Garden
Design a container garden of flowering houseplants or spring flowering bulbs that were forced indoors.
This is a great way to get your hands dirty and bring the outdoors in.
