It’s been a while since we did some crafting around here hasn’t it? How about a little something Spingy for the front door to tell this snow to GO AWAY?
I’m not so sure it will work, but I made something anyway…a Spring Tulip Basket!
Since my 31 days of thrifty madness is starting this Sunday, I have thrifty on the brain, so I incorporated a little thriftiness into this project. You can easily guess which part was thrifted, right?
You probably said the basket and you would be right. It was a $1.25 Good Will find:
It was in brand-new condition and I knew it would be perfect for a Spring bouquet after a coat of white spray paint.
The only blooms I purchased new (from Hobby Lobby) were these twiggy ones with the tiny green blossoms:
I used six of them. The white ones sneaking into the picture didn’t make the cut.
The tulips and green sprigs came from my Spring Tulip Wreath that I made for my mantel last year:
I had it hanging in the garage and it had fallen several times and was looking a little tattered, so I reused the flowers and sprigs in my basket!
The nice thing about using a basket like this is that I can hang it or it can stand upright somewhere.
It looks pretty here on the inside of my dining room doors. It was snowing outside as I was taking these pictures, even if my dining room says it’s summer.
Here is another simple spring wreath I made last year that you may like:
I actually made that one for my Mom last year.
