Make this: Hexagon Wind Chimes

 I have a fun way to make your own hexagon wind chimes today.  This is part of the Craft Lightning series where I post a 15 minute craft every morning.  Then every afternoon I post a round up of quick crafts from around the web.  If you want a chance to be featured, there is still time to link up YOUR quick crafts to our Craft Lightning linky party.    For today’s project, I wanted to do an outdoor craft with my DecoArt Patio Paints.  I am on their design team which is amazing but as always all projects and opinions you see here are all mine.  Hexagons are becoming super popular and I see them everywhere.  Here a simple hexagon pencil cup becomes hexagon wind chimes with this craft tutorial.
If you missed any of the Craft Lightning fun, be sure to check out the quick crafts from day 1, day 2, day 3, and day 4.

Carrot Spring Wreath

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.  

 
Carrot Spring Wreath -- grab some StyroFoam to make a fun carrot then add to a rectangular wreath.  A fun spring wreath that is cute and unique.
 
 

I am joined by Carolina from 30 Minute Crafts in the video below as we craft with StyroFoam crafts from FloraCraft.  What would you make with a cone?  Watch below and see what we make.  Then head to Crafty Hangouts to see even more fun cone crafts.  
 

 
Watch the video above for the full instructions.  Here is a brief explanation if you miss any of the instructions in the video:
 
  1. Cut a StyroFoam ball in half and add to the top of the cone with hot glue.
  2. Cut a piece of felt into a funky or fun shape and stick into the top.  Secure with a little hot glue.
  3. 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.
  4. At the bottom use hot glue and quite a bit of yarn to create a carrot “tip”.
  5. Wrap a frame in burlap or strips of any fabric for a wreath form.
  6. Tie the carrot on with jute twine and secure with a little hot glue as well to hold in place.
  7. Tie on a fun spring saying to your wreath as well.
  8. Hang on your door.
