Spring craft ideas to enjoy

There’s something so lovely about being inspired to create by the seasons isn’t there? This Spring feels more precious and miraculous than ever don’t you think? After the year we’ve gone through, it feels so important to nurture the creative, seasonal side of ourselves. To tune in to the rhythms of the natural world, appreciate and celebrate the simple pleasures in life. As simple pleasures go, busying your hands with an enjoyable creative craft project is right up there for me.

With that in mind, I thought I’d share with you some of my favourite Spring craft ideas that would be perfect for enjoying right now. Hope you find something you love…
