I couldn’t resist sharing my spring printer’s tray here today. This one was originally posted over at Crafts Unleashed but I usually repost here in case y’all missed it. I have loved having this touch of spring decor on my mantle for the past few weeks. It is not too late to make this one as I am going to leave it out all summer long. Plus it is super easy to make and who doesn’t love a printer’s tray?
The week of mason jar crafts over at Crafty Hangouts has come to a close. I have one last mason jar spring vase video tutorial for you today. I love the fabric flowers adorning the front of this painted mason jar vase. It is simple and quick to put together as well. I love a quick project that is so darn cute. Another huge thank you to the Ball brand for sponsoring our hangouts all week and providing jars for our event.

A fun carrot spring wreath for your home decor at Easter or throughout the spring season. Make this wreath in just minutes by following the directions below. This one is super easy and will make a unique statement on your front door. The cones for our crafting were provided by FloraCraft as part of our Crafty Hangouts series.
- Cut a StyroFoam ball in half and add to the top of the cone with hot glue.
- Cut a piece of felt into a funky or fun shape and stick into the top. Secure with a little hot glue.
- Start wrapping at the very top with orange yarn. The top will need to be secured in a few places with hot glue so it does not slide off. After that you can wrap the rest rapidly without securing.
- At the bottom use hot glue and quite a bit of yarn to create a carrot “tip”.
- Wrap a frame in burlap or strips of any fabric for a wreath form.
- Tie the carrot on with jute twine and secure with a little hot glue as well to hold in place.
- Tie on a fun spring saying to your wreath as well.
- Hang on your door.
Enjoy this carrot spring wreath all season long. Be sure to see all of the other cone crafts at Crafty Hangouts. What would you make with a cone for spring?
Y’all Jen Goode from 100 Directions is here again this month with a free printable sweet treats kit that you will love. This one is perfect for wedding favors or heck just a fun way to give sweet treats to anyone on your list. There are some major changes happening on this website in case y’all have noticed. I am ironing things out over the next few days. Hang onto your hats!
This month’s printable I took on the challenge of creating something to add to your wedding. To me, weddings are so very personal, you have the opportunity to personalize every tiny aspect of your day if you want. So, I wanted to make sure to create something you could add yourself to. I created a tiny treat bag with a selection of embellishment pieces and parts so you can put together every little bag with that special touch that is uniquely your own.
I also found that wood and metal box while thrifting a few weeks ago. I is actually not old but it sure does look it! I added a galvanized pail on top with an Easter themed tag.
My large twine wrapped eggs came out of storage as well. Perfect on top of an old rusty wire spool.
The star of the show and what my mantel is built around is this neon pom pom wreath. I promise y’all will get the full instructions for this one very soon.
Supplies needed for the utensil pouch:
- Pretty Girl Button Brads
- Small Oval Sliders
- Basket Weave Embossing Folder
- Nestabilities Die from Spellbinders
- Clearsnap Chalk Inkpad in Yellow Citrus
- Colorbox Ink in Moody Blue
- Flower stamps
- Cookie Bags
- Card stock
- Baker’s Twine
- Mod Podge
- Hot Glue
I then drew stems and leaves on my flowers using the same set of fine line craft markers. I stamped “Happy Easter” onto a small oval slider using the Colorbox Ink.
You could even personalize that shape on the front with the name or initial of your guests. Then these great utensil pouches would double as place cards. Don’t love flowers? You can change up the decor on the front as well. This technique is super easy to personalize and can be used for any occasion. So use it to dress up your Easter table this week and your Sunday dinner table next.
Put it in a bowl with some shredded green paper and continue making eggs in a variety of pretty colors. Add these to the center of your Easter table and everyone can ooooh and aaaah over your pretty egg creations.
