Spring DIY Projects You Need to Try

With spring just around the corner, I thought it was necessary to pull out some of my fav DIY projects!  I don’t know about you, but this amazing weather has me in a crafty mood. (By the way, I heard that the reason for this gorgeous sunshine is due to the horrible earthquake in Japan that happened… Apparently it affected the Earth’s rotation and threw it off it’s axis by four degrees or something… crazy!).

Turn a spoon or fishing rod rack into a cute little sunglasses holder!  How cute is this? My sunglasses always go missing and pile up in random places so this would be so perfect. Check it out here.
Make your own heating pad! Love this idea, and I would have never thought to use RICE!  Check it out at The Paper Mama here.
Turn an old cookie sheet into a cute spring inspired tray! I can just see some fresh glasses of lemonade being carried outside on this thing.  Check it out here.
Tint your own mason jars! Loving the colours! You could even serve cold drinks in these with a cute straw (update: apparently these are unsafe to drink out of 🙁 darn!)! Check out the tutorial here.
Cute little fabric covered DIY journals!  Perfect for jotting down quick thoughts! Check it out here.

Make some keychains using scraps of fabric!  Awesome little gift idea too! Learn how here.


Make your own adorable picnic blanket! I love this idea, and it can be done super cheap! Check it out here.
Have a lovely day, friends!
