“Spring” Crafts

www.polkadotpoplars.com

I love Spring and the newness of life it brings, the warmer weather, and the beauty it brings.

I also love creating fun new things and one of my new favorite things to use are old vintage bed springs as the base.  You might remember the crows I made for Halloween here.

I decided to do the same kind of idea for Spring and Easter.  I found the springs at a local antique store for a few dollars.  If you can’t find springs you could use a candle stick.

I purchased a cute bunny from the Dollar store and embellished it a bit.  Using crepe paper I placed two pieces on top of each other and sewed a gathering stitch down the center, folded it in half, and then hot glued it around the bunnies neck.

I got the small paper mache bunny from JoAnn’s for 40% off. (Bonus!).  I painted her brown like a chocolate bunny and added eyes.  I made a gathered collar for this one, too.

For the wood bases I used wood circles you can find at any craft store.  I painted them and added moss.  Using a good adhesive glue attach the wood base to the spring.  Let dry.  Glue your bunny on the top of the wood piece amongst the moss.

At this point I continued to embellish with ribbon, eggs, flowers, etc.

Really, this is so very easy.  Make sure you Facebook a picture on our page of the Spring and Easter projects you have made.  We would love to see them.
