The time is here again, spring is when everything seemingly comes to life once more. The flowers start to bloom, plants and leaves grow and birds begin to chirp in unison again. It’s also the perfect time to get your home to look lively with some beautiful decorations! No matter the age or ability, here are some easy and fun spring crafts to try this season to spruce up your homes.
A garden flag is a relatively simple craft that is an amazing addition to any garden or home. Simply begin with a rectangular piece of fabric that should be able to withstand the varying weather conditions should you want to place it outside your home. Next, fold the top down a few inches and then glue or sew the fabric together to make an opening that you can tie a string to hang the flag or place a flag holder through. You can decorate however you like, whether it’s embellishments, ribbons, or using a fabric pen to write on it.
Decorating a picture frame is another easy craft suitable for seniors. Start by buying a basic wooden frame, then use spring decorations like beads, silk flowers, or ribbons to create a spring-inspired frame color. The most important element yet is the picture you’re going to use the frame for! Go out into nature and take some photos that you’d associate with spring. You can even take a photo of yourself and your loved ones together and frame it up for a lasting memory.
Spring wreaths are excellent decorations for the spring season and they can be hung anywhere within your home, whether it’s on a wall or a door. Begin with a plain wreath that can be bought anywhere, then choose your decorative items. Your options are boundless! You can weave a variety of flowers in the wreath, wrap them in a ribbon or even put adorable soft toys on them.
Pressed flowers are a perfect way of bringing the spring season onto your home. Collect some small wildflowers on your walks outside, arrange them properly on a sheet of wax paper. Next, lay another sheet of wax paper over the flowers and press them with ideally a flat, heavy object like a book. Leave them to press overnight to achieve the best results. Once finished, you can laminate the flowers and turn them into beautiful bookmarks.
