1. Garden Fever- Crafts for Your Spring Garden


    Spring officially begins next week making us dream of gardens full of flowers, fruits, and vegetables.

    Have you been considering starting a garden? Do you have a garden already? Whether you are a beginner or expert, we put together a list of garden craft ideas for all ages to create.

    • Paint rocks- Decorate rocks and label them with what is planted in that section. For example tomato, parsley, or lilies.
    • Decorate popsicle sticks- If you don’t have any rocks nearby, use popsicle sticks instead. Place them in the ground so you can remember what you have plated where.
    • Adorn a garden house- Many craft stores sell kits to make bird feeders or small garden houses. Decorate them however you would like and leave one in your garden for extra character.
    • Set aside a Kid Zone- Let the kids select a few things they want to plant and set aside an area in the garden for their plants. They can water and care for this section while you handle the rest.
    • DIY Bird Feeder- Making a homemade bird feeder is easy! Take a pinecone and tie some twine around it so it will hang. Rub peanut butter on the cone and sprinkle seeds on it.  Be sure to check out all the birds that come to visit!
    • Create Stepping stones- Find large slats of rock or stepping stones at a craft store near you. Decorate the stone with paints, mosaic glass, and other tools then place in your garden.
    • Build a Welcome sign- Using stones, flowers, paint, wood, and other natural elements, decorate a Welcome sign that can sit at the entrance of your garden.
    • Paint your potters- If you place any items into pots, paint them with bright colors, pictures, or artwork.

    There are so many ideas and crafts that can be done by all ages to make your garden an even more beautiful and welcoming place. What are some of the crafts you and your family do for your garden?
