6 of My Favorite Spring and Easter DIY Craft Tutorials


With Spring in the air and Easter just around the corner, I thought I'd share a few of my favorite tutorials to celebrate the new season. I feel like it was just Christmas... I'm not sure where the time goes, but luckily I always have a bunch of season and holiday-appropriate craft tutorials in my back pocket to share. 


One of the things I love most about Springtime is the beautiful and vibrant colors that come out to play again after a long winter's nap. I hope you find something here that sparks your fancy and gets you itchin' to put your craftin' pants on and take 'em out for a spin!

I love pretty much anything papier maché, but these are made with one of my favorite craft supplies -- tissue paper -- so I love them even more! Plus, these little cuties are designed to break open and reveal a secret stash of sweetness, so in my book, you can't go wrong!!

Sweet Treat Ideas for St. Patrick's Day!

I was hoping to be able to come up with a special recipe for you just for Saint Paddy's day, especially since I love green so much, but I'm afraid I've been spending too much time gawking at other people's treats on Pinterest and well, you know. I lost a few weeks in the abyss :/

Anyway, at the very least, I thought I could put together a recipe roundup of some of the most awesome ones I found so that I appear somewhat more productive than I actually have been. Heheheh.

Now that I've got this post out of the way and no plans for the weekend, I have plenty of time to bake!! I think I'll start with #2 and make the cupcakes and the cake balls at the same time...but then, I may as well go ahead and make the Green Velvet Whoopie Pies (#4) while I'm at it. But I really don't want to miss out on the Minty Creme Cocoa, so I should really try that one, and I don't imagine it would hurt to make some cookies to dunk into it so I will either bake the Frosted Sugar Cookie Shamrocks or the Mint Chocolate Chips....but I can't really decide which one... Oh DEAR what have I DONE??
