Tutorial Tuesday!

Are your bulbs peeking up out of the earth? Mine are! After my first winter in Maryland, I quickly learned that daffodils are the first sign of spring! To celebrate them, I took a little leaf out of Martha Stewart's book and made this cute craft (if you've got a green thumb, try out Martha's basket!)--here are the easy steps!
What you'll need: A basket, some fake flowers, some little chicks, some moss (all available for less than $15 at a craft store), and a few things from home: cardboard, scissors, and an old towel/sheet.
Step 1: Place the towel inside the basket.
Step 2: Cut a circle out of the cardboard; it should be a little smaller than the basket.
Step 3: Poke some holes in the cardboard--these can be random (or calculated if you're clever!)
Step 4: Place the cardboard into the basket on top of the towel. It should rest flat about 2-3 inches below the top of the basket.
Step 5: Arrange the flowers by poking the stems into the holes. Cover the cardboard with moss.
Step 6: Arrange your little chicks in their new home! Cute!

So excited for spring! Dresses without tights, walks in the sun, picnics...what are you looking forward to?

  1. What can you do with dream catchers?
    How about a nightstand? I need a nightstand for my bedroom, but I want it to look cool...
    How about a fun decorative piece for a bathroom?
