Dogwoods in a Basket Wreath

A symbol of new life and hope, these flowering tree branches first start blossoming in early spring. For a fresh twist on a floral wreath, gather a cluster in a vintage fishing creel (lined with plastic and a wet floral foam base to keep pieces secure), and hang on your front door.

This would make a beautiful gift for a friend or even a housewarming.

Retooled Markers

Spring is the time to start getting the garden ready and these DIY garden markers, made using rusty or wobbly handled garden tools, is just the thing to help you do that!

To make: 

  • Drill a small hole in the wood handles and tie hand-penned wooden tags through the holes with twine.
  • Insert the pointy tips into the soil so the markers stand upright.
  • *Coat wood with clear varnish to protect the handwriting from the elements.

DIY Patterned Carpet

Why spend a fortune on a new spring rug when you can easily craft your own?

With an 8′ by 10′ carpet at the ready, use any wall stencils and a foam stencil brush to easily imprint your own designs.

Pinpoint a color scheme and stock up on a quart of standard interior paint in a satin finish.

Note: Make sure you wash the stencil after every other use to avoid unwanted marks on the rug.
