Let’s bring some color into our spaces, shall we? There is no better way to do this than this easy peasy spring wreath. You can make your own wreath just like this using less than $5 in supplies and in just minutes. Yes, minutes! You don’t need to be super crafty, you don’t need a lot of time, you just need a few supplies and you can adorn your door, space, or even office area with a wreath that screams WARM WEATHER IS HERE! So are you ready to get crafty? Take a look below at how to get started!

Supplies needed:
Grapevine wreath
Spray paint (optional, only if needed)
Mini paper drink umbrellas
Hot glue, glue gun

Directions:
1. Begin by spraying your grapevine wreath the color of your choice. We found precolored wreaths at our local Hobby Lobby Store for under $4 that worked perfectly. If you can’t find something similar, find a grapevine wreath at your local dollar store and give it a coat or two of the color of your choice.
2. Once your wreath is dry, and you want to be sure it is totally dry, you are going to add your drink umbrellas. Open your umbrellas up so they are nice and full. Apply some hot glue to the stems of them and press them into your wreath. Hold them in place so the umbrellas attach and stay attached to the grapevine.
3. Don’t cover the entire wreath, just apply umbrellas to the corners of it in clusters and bunches.

When you are done, you can add a ribbon for hanging or just display your wreath as is. As you can see, it is the perfect pop of color to a bland space or any space that needs the look and feel of spring.

So are you ready to craft your own? Go for it! Then, share your creation with us on the Facebook page or Community Chat page. We want to see how crafty you are!

Have a great day, friends!

If you are in the mood for some fun and frugal Easter crafting, this easy Easter picture frame is for you! How sweet will this little dandy look perched on your mantel or bookshelf? It can even add some instant Easter charm to your office. Take a peek below at how to make your own eggcellent (like that?) Easter picture frame in just minutes and for just pennies. Yep, pennies! Take a peek!

Easy Easter Picture Frame

Supplies needed:
Picture frame
Spray paint
Foam eggs
Knife
Craft glue

We found the eggs we used in this project at our local dollar store. The frame and paint were all leftovers we had around the house. So our total cost for this project was just $1. Before you go and buy, look around and see what you may have on hand that is usable.

Directions:
1. Begin by removing the glass of the frame. You will not be needing it.
2. Apply two coats of paint to the frame allowing drying time in between. You want to paint right over the insert and everything creating a matching canvas to your frame.
3. Take a knife and cut your foam eggs in half.
4. Apply some glue to the egg and press it to the inside of the frame. You can add as many eggs as you wish. We thought two were perfect for our frame, but you can decide what works for you.
