Ahh Spring!! Now if someone would remind mother nature to warm up the temperatures just a little bit. But as the Spring temperatures flip flop, there’s no better time than now to craft a few budget-friendly Spring projects to transform your living areas and bring Spring inside. You’ll be surprised what you can accomplish!
To get you started, check out the myriad of resources available with internet access, there are numerous crafting blogs, craft sites, and supplier resources are at your fingertips, “let your fingers do the walking!”
Also check your local craft store clearance sections, flea markets, or thrift shops for cute prints that you can use to craft pillows, placemats, or wall art that will transform your decor. How about the dollar store for patterned paper? Even printed wrapping paper or patterned stationary can be made into your “new favorite” budget-friendly wall art!
Look at things that you already have that can be reused in a whole new way. Free! Do you have children’s clothing that they’ve outgrown? You can reuse / repurpose those items into cute craft projects while you preserve the memories of your kids growing years.
Now onto ideas to craft any item into Spring fix-me-ups. Projects can be sewn by machine if you have access to one, stitched by hand if you know how, or made “no sew” with iron on transfer paper. Who doesn’t love that?
Budget friendly wall art that looks like a designer original? You can get it and do it yourself saving hundreds! Some foam and your favorite scrap booking paper is all you need.
Or, try your hand at making your own patterned paper to frame and display…here’s how
Freshing your home for Spring doesn’t have to cost alot of money, just get started and remember Summer’s just around the corner.
