I had the opportunity a few months back to make a project to be in Pat Catan’s stores. So yes I was making a woodland spring monogram while wrapping Christmas presents. But it was worth it! My project is now in stores and you can head there to see one of these monograms in person and get the supplies to make your own. Don’t live by a Pat Catan’s? No problem! You can order all you need to make this online and follow my instructions below.
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.
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?
Spring is here. I think. Are we the only ones with a little chilly weather this week? Either way you can bring a little spring or summer inspiration with over 40 crafts with flowers.

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.

I love spring and all it’s beautiful new flowers blooming all around. So today I have a printable for you to dress up your glass jars to use as vases for all your favorite flowers. Use a regular hole punch to create a lace effect before attaching the wrap to your vase. I love it when something so simple can become fabulous with just a little extra effort!
It is time for Crafty Hangouts again. This month we have mason jar crafts all week long. I am kicking things off with these two toned dyed jars that are perfect for candle holders. Plus you can make them in just a few minutes. The hangouts this week are actually sponsored by Ball brand. I am using two different Ball brand jars in this video and if you will hang around until the end of the week I will use a different type of jar for another craft.
I am hoping that spring finally makes an official appearance here soon. I started on a few outdoor projects to try and move it along. This confetti tiered planter is one of them. Grab a few different size terra cotta pots to make your own tiered planter easily. Plus I have a super secret weapon to make that confetti pattern. This one would also make a great gift for Mother’s Day y’all so be sure to make two — one for you and one to give!
It may not feel like spring out there but it is here! Spring is here! I am going to celebrate a little with my spring push pop cupcakes. This one was originally posted over at Crafts Unleashed but I thought we would celebrate here a bit as well. These are super festive and easy to make. So bring it on spring we are ready for ya!
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?
