March is upon us! That means that spring and St. Patrick’s Day are right around the corner. St. Patrick’s Day is a fun holiday so the decorations and crafts should be too! I saw this frame at Michaels and thought it would be perfect for a fun and different St. Patrick’s Day ‘wreath’. It was easy to make and didn’t take long at all! Here’s what you need:

Scrap fabric garland is such a simple craft but a great way to add some dimension and color to your decorations. I wanted the garland for the ladder on my patriotic front porch. Using some different fabric, it would also be a cute addition to Christmas or birthday decorations. And it is SO EASY. Here’s what you need:
2 or 3 coordinating patterned fabrics (I would get about 1/2 yard each)
Cut several strips out of your fabric, making each strip about 1 in wide and 3 inches long.
It’s hard to see them, but in the red metal basket on my porch are three burlap and twine Mason jar vases. They are so easy to make and add the perfect rustic touch to a porch, wedding decorations, a summer party, or even for just around the house. If you know how to use glue and can tie a bow, you can make these! Here’s what you need:
Happy Memorial Day! Summer is here, time to change up the decorations on the porch! With Memorial Day and July 4th being such important holidays of the summer, I went with a patriotic theme this year. What I love about the porch is how much color the sunflowers and red pillows add to it.

May really crept up on me, how about you? Only a few weeks until Memorial Day, then about a month later it will be July 4th! This year, I’m doing an entire Patriotic Porch for summer–can’t wait to show you. But first is this wreath. I had so much fun making it and it was so easy. Just wrap a wreath with fabric strips or ribbon, add your flowers and a bow and that’s it! Here’s what I used:
18 in foam wreath
Fabric, cut into 3 in wide strips (or ribbon)
Faux flowers (I found these in the hair accessory section)
Ribbon for the bow
Hot glue gun
Wrap the wreath with fabric strips or ribbon, securing it with glue as you go.
Attach the flowers to the wreath.
Make a bow and a hanging loop out of ribbon, attach it with glue and your wreath is ready to hang!
That’s it! For more Patriotic craft ideas, check out the Holiday & Seasonal page.

Making an Easter Egg Tree centerpiece is a fun craft to do with kids. My daughter had a great time helping me make ours–she took her time finding the perfect little branches for our tree. To make one, all you need are a few branches, plastic or decorative eggs, a vase, and string. Add a bow and paint the branches if you want to!
The decorative eggs I used were foam on the inside. I ran a needle through the top and made a knot. You can also glue the string to the eggs.
Tie the eggs to the branches and your Easter egg tree is done!
