As springtime approaches, crafters are sure to be switching their focus from sweaters and wreaths to flowers. Whether you’re sewing flower-patterned sundresses or looking to upcycle some old items from your winter closet, there are plenty of crafting opportunities in the spring. You may not be able to plant flowers just yet, but at least you can crochet some tulips and daisies in the meantime! We’ve rounded up some spring-inspired crafts to help you get started.
In the spring, Easter is a favorite holiday for many people. This adorable pattern for crocheted chicks is simple and perfect for crochet beginners looking to get into the springtime spirit. Though it’s a simple pattern, These little chicks would look on a windowsill even before the flowers begin to sprout outside!
Check out this CraftFoxes for all the details on these crochet Easter chicks. FaveCrafts also featured a variety of crochet crafts for Easter. You can create a large decorative piece like an Easter Egg Wreath or Crochet Bunny Peep and make a huge impression when the day arrives.
People often associate warmer air and sunnier days with spring cleaning! When the cold weather is carried away, it’s nice to freshen up your home. Upcycling is one way to streamline your space without breaking the bank. For example, old jeans can become a denim rug, refashioned t-shirts can be stitched together into a quilt, and those winter sweaters can be made into a messenger bag.
St. Patrick’s Day is another fun spring holiday! It’s always fun to wear some festive green clothing, so be sure to check out these great outfit ideas for St. Paddy’s Day. From the adorable head-to-toe in green outfit for kids to a simple, green, clover-shaped brooch to pin on your shirt, there are so many creative opportunities.
For those of us who live in the colder climates, it can take some time before actual flowers start sprouting. Sometimes you need to make your own flowers, and these knitted dahlias are sure to bring some color to your home. For this project, you’ll need green, dark red/wine (or desired color) and yellow-green yarn. This gorgeous little pattern will tide you over until the spring weather arrives.
