As Seen on the TODAY Show: 8 of the Easiest DIY Projects for Spring
Winter is on its way out, which means it’s time to welcome spring! One of my favorite parts about this season is all of the flowers in bloom. With that in mind, I went to the TODAY Show this morning and showed them eight easy floral-themed projects that are great to make both solo OR with your entire family. From home decor to recipes, we’ve got your spring DIYs covered. Check out the projects below.
We all know that April showers bring May flowers — and now we have this adorable front door wreath to remind us!
<b>String Light Flowers</b>These floral string lights are perfect for indoor use. Plus, they’re a great way to repurpose all those strands of holiday lights you probably have lying around the house.
Don’t know how to make a paper flower? Follow our paper flower crown tutorial for the basics.
Simply twist the flower around your string lights using wire to complete the project. If you don’t want to make the flowers, you can also purchase silk flowers, and wire them around the lights.
: Next, we’ve got a floral wreath made from leftover egg cartons. This is perfect for those of you getting a head start on your Easter eggs (I hope you’ve tried out all 40 of these egg dyeing techniques!) ;) Cut through the cartons with scissors or a box cutter, then shape the edges into petals. We made rounded petals and some angular ones for variety. We also cut some leaves out of the carton lid. Paint your pieces and then hot glue them to a hoop. We used an embroidery hoop, but you could easily use a more traditional wreath base or anything around your house that’s the right shape. Even cardboard could work! (via Homemade Serenity)
<b> Fruit on a Stick</b>This is another project that’s super fun for the kiddos. Get a variety of floral cookies cutters, including leaves and flowers, then cut out fruit like cantaloupe and honeydew.
Add these to skewers along with strawberries, grapes and blueberries to make floral kabobs. Arrange them on a platter for a floral display.
: For a floral dessert, pipe frosting onto square pretzels, and then add M&M’s or marshmallows with pearl sprinkles in the center. The green M&M’s are perfect for creating leaves! (via Two Sisters Crafting)
We got really creative in-house and made some TODAY Show host sandwiches for Willie, Al, Tamron and Natalie. Can you tell who is who?
