National Craft Month Roundup

March is National Craft Month!To celebrate, I've rounded up six of my favorite spring crafts. Whether you like to work with felt and floss or paper and glue, there's a project here for you. Click on the title of the project below to visit its original blog post. Happy Crafting!

Silver Lining Sun-Catcher
This easy-to-sew sun-catcher hides a surprise. One side is a fluffy felt cloud; the other is a shiny silver lining.

Recycled Greeting Card
Use the pretty greeting cards and gift wrap you've been saving to make an all-occasion gift card.

St Patrick's Day Welcome Cards
Welcome guests to your St. Patrick's Day gathering with these pretty place cards. They're super simple to make from paper, rubber stamps, and a bit of wire.

Easter Bunny Eggs
These adorable Easter eggs use two of my favorite craft supplies--pompoms and wiggle eyes. Best of all, there's no messy dyeing involved--just a bit of paper and glue.

Garden Party Cards 
Beatrix Potter's Peter Rabbit tales inspired these garden party cards. The Beatrix card features paper cabbages; pea pods decorate the Peter card (not visible here).

Sweet Easter Egg Ornaments
My childhood Easter basket always included a big chocolate egg decorated with colorful icing. These felt versions use buttons and trims to mimic the real thing--and they're calorie-free!
