Are you ready for spring to hurry up and get here?  I know I sure am!  Spring is one of my favorite seasons, and it’s also a great inspiration for crafting.  Looking for some ideas to help get you in the mood for flowers and birdsong and warmer weather?  Here are five springy projects you can do using stuff you can find at Dollar Tree!

Five dollar store buys and what to craft with them -

Dress up your decor indoors or out with a flowery monogram wreath.  For maximum springy effect, go for silk flowers in pastel colors or in seasonal varieties like tulips or daffodils.

Flower Pots

This is one of the easiest ideas you’ll ever see for dressing up plain flower pots.  It’s a great project to do with kids!  Imagine how cheerful your windowsills would look lined with these!

Solar-Powered Garden Lights

Solar Accent Light

This year Dollar Tree has some colorful little solar lights, which have many great uses.  Take advantage of the bright colors with projects like this solar accent light.  Don’t like the colors they have available?  You could always paint your lights (being careful not to cover the solar cells, of course) for a custom look.

Mini Pinwheels

It’s time to tear down that winter wreath and replace it with something else!  This wreath adorned with mini pinwheels is adorable, playful, and sure to make your guests smile.

Flip Flops

Braided T-shirt Strap Sandals

Spring also means it’s time to rearrange your wardrobe!  Stash all those sweaters at the back of the closet and bring on the tank tops!  If you love the ease and convenience of flip flop sandals but don’t like the uncomfortable plastic straps, replace them with the softness of recycled T-shirt fabric instead for a much more comfy alternative!
