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…
Spring craft ideas to enjoy
Knit a bunny
If there’s a perfect time of year to knit a bunny rabbit, it’s surely right now. The knitting genius that is Claire Garland (aka Dot Pebbles Knits) has created the most heart-melting collection of bunny patterns (you can buy the Wild Rabbit pattern above on Etsy).
Thanks to Claire for also sharing her baby bunny pattern for free with us. It’s the perfect spring craft project for novice knitters. Get the free PDF pattern and all the info you need here: How to knit a bunny rabbit baby – free pattern

Sew a felt rabbit
Bluebell Rabbit, to be precise and it’s by Lisa of A Sewing Life. You can buy just the pattern or a beautifully put-together sewing kit on Etsy. Cleverly, Lisa has designed Bluebell with a unique system hidden inside the body so there are no buttons or fastenings on show. You can also buy patterns to make cloths for Bluebell, including the dress (shown above) and this adorable coat:

If you aren’t already familiar with the wonderful Olga Prinku and her dried flower hoop art, now’s the perfect time to put that right. Olga shares her step by steps to creating mini dried flower hoop art here: How to make embroidery hoop art with dried flowers. It’s all about ’embroidering’ with dried flowers on tulle that has been stretched across an embroidery hoop. Genius and utterly beautiful.
