Diy: Spring Garland Craft

Sharing how to make a Spring Garland craft #diy #spring

Happy Tuesday!  I think we are all ready for a little more Spring, don’t you think?  Goodbye winter:).  A few weeks ago the kids had off from school and we made some spring crafts.  Book page Easter eggs and this spring garland.  This garland craft is soooo easy to make (a craft even kids can do:) and CHEAP!  Perfect for your spring decorating.  We only used half of the clay so it cost us roughly $2 for the garland shown.  All you do is roll out the modeling clay, we used DAS.  Next use cookie cutters to cut out your shapes.  Eggs and bunnies for us:).  Now, they are not quite as perfect as maybe I would have done but the kids made them:).

I used chop sticks to make the holes for the ribbon to go through.  Let the clay dry 24 hrs and you are ready to hang them.  I had a couple of places in mind for this garland so I might change my mind yet and move it but for today they are hanging on my dining room mantel:).

In keeping with the yellow accent color in my Spring decorating I picked up some yellow tulips from Trader Joe’s:).  I love tulips!  To see our yellow spring mantel in the living room  click here.

That is a recycled Whole Foods apple juice jug (minus the label) for the centerpiece with some branches from our yard and a sprig of forsythia from AC Moore.   (flowers are 1/2 off this week…I am not getting paid to say that, it’s just a good deal)!  And for a large glass jug for $8 (and you get to drink the juice in it) that price can’t be beat either:).  The glass jug looks very similar to some I have seen in the Pottery Barn catalog.  It makes a beautiful simple centerpiece for really anywhere in your home:).  And I still love my newly refinished farmhouse dining room table that Jason made me.  To see how he made it to look like a popular Restoration Hardware one click here.

    1. Suzan, thank you so much for your sweet words about my dining room! The color is actually Sherwin Williams Manor Brown:), it’s a real dark grey brown and it does almost look black certain times of the day:). Thanks so much for stopping by! -Tara

  1. This is such a cute idea. I’m happy to see that you used modeling clay because at first glance I thought this was salt dough (with which I have a terrible track record!). I’d love to share a text link to this on Friday (I share links to things I think are great each Friday).

    I stopped by from The Scoop.

    1. Hi Jessy, Thanks so much for visiting! I don’t have a good record with salt dough either:). By all means, share away, thank you very much! Take care, Tara

    1. Christine, thank you so much for visiting and thank you for hosting your link party! I just recently found your blog and have enjoyed checking out everything on it:)
