It’s raining, it’s pouring and this craft lady needed something to keep from snoring. They say it is officially Spring… But here in Portland we are in our longest season – RAIN. And it has been a wet one this year. Thankfully the rain hasn’t stopped the flowers and trees from starting to bloom, and I wanted to steal (or copy) some of that beauty for my front door. I hope you enjoy this wreath.

Make today your “lucky day” by making a cute new wreath for St. Patrick’s Day.
I was looking for a fun alternative to the typical candy valentines, without making me into that “boring” mom who “never” gives anything fun. I think these Pencil Arrow Valentines will be “write” on target! I made these with stuff I already had around the house (except the fun pencils), and they are easy enough that even young crafters can help you!

My niece is in her first term of college. Since she misses having a Christmas tree, I made her this mini pom pom tree to decorate her dorm room. This is an easy craft project that can bring some holiday cheer to small spaces.
Whether you make them yourself or buy them in bulk Pom Poms make one of the most versatile, fun and inexpensive materials for kids’ crafting. Pom Pom Pets and/or monsters are one of our go-to rainy day activities. Here are some more ideas for crafting with pom poms, store bought or hand made with yarn (surprisingly pretty easy to do, even with the kiddos).
Pom Pom pencil pets dress up your pencils and make math homework infinitely more fun.
Making your own pom poms can be seriously addicting. Once you make one, you don’t want to stop! Luckily, there are tons of great pom pom crafts to put your homemade pom poms, or tiny store bought ones to good use.
Spring is right around the corner, and I’m sure anyone would want a bunch of little yarn bunnies decorating their house for the season. Create one for a child or yourself!
