Making Stuff for Spring

VMC LogoHere at Vintage Mama’s Cottage we are always on the look-out for fun craft projects to share with our readers. As much as we would like to say that all of the best ideas come from our design studio, that is just not possible! If you are thinking about getting crafty this spring, or if your creative ideas need a bit of inspiration, here are a few CUTE spring craft ideas that we are going to try. If you have a fun, creative craft project for spring, we would love to share it here at Vintage Mama’s Cottage. Here’s what we’ll be working on in the next couple of weeks:

Mason Jar PincushionsMason Jar Pincushions

Do you have little ones who would like to learn to sew? This fun spring craft project would be a great way to get them started. Put together their own little sewing kit in one of these adorable Mason jar pincushions, and then start the first lesson! Mother’s Day is coming right up, too, and Mom or Grandma would be delighted with a charming little vintage pincushion made from a Mason jar.

Complete tutorial is available from The Enchanting Rose.



Mini Resurrection Garden

What a fun way to celebrate Easter! Everyone in the family can join in on this craft project, and then when the weather gets warm enough, you can display this beautiful planter all summer. A simple clay pot, grass seed and potting soil, a few small rocks and twigs and you can tell the story of the Resurrection.

More ideas from Pixgood where you can find lots of “pins” for spring.



Vintage Button Easter Eggs

Super simple, yet absolutely gorgeous! These vintage-button Easter eggs can be created using either Styrofoam egg-shaped forms, or any plastic Easter eggs. Buttons can be pinned on if using Styrofoam forms or glued on using a hot glue gun if using plastic Easter eggs. You could also add ribbons and lace, jewels and gems, and create your own masterpiece Easter eggs to welcome spring and celebrate the joy of Easter.

More ideas from Pixgood!
