Spring Jar Craft


Spring into Spring! 

Spring crafting is a time of renewal and simplicity.  The fresh green of new leaves are found in faux pearls and ribbons.  Even the glass in this project has a tint of green. 

Get back to crafting by creating this fun project for your kitchen spices or bathroom cotton balls.  This easy spring craft is a welcomed jewel in any room of your house or on your office desk.  It makes a great gift as well.  And, it really is an inexpensive spring craft project.

You can use any of the spring trendy colors to alter the lid of the jar.  I loved the soft green spring colors, so that I why I decided to use them.  This would be a fun party or dinner favor.  Just add a battery-powered tea light and your guest will love their little gift.

There are so many great spring ribbons out this year.  It will be hard to choose which one you will want to use, but you need to make sure the width of the ribbon matches the width of the lid.

If you are going to make these for a dinner, you can use all one color ribbon or use different colored ribbons.  This would make an awesome table decoration for Cinco de Mayo.

Duct Tape Easter Purse

Easter Duct Tape Bunny Purse



This spring, you need a little duck to make a bunny!  Don’t you love that Duct Tape now comes in so many great colors and patterns?  I do too.  So, I made this little Duct Tape purse as an Easter gift.  Spring crafts are so much fun and this spring crafting idea is fast to make as well.

While you craft the bunny’s face from a fabric flower, the whiskers are thin strips of Duct Tape. 

The construction of the purse is from duct tape and then you use rubber-stamping inks to soften the plastic look of the duck tape.
