The Sweetest Bird Wreath for Spring

Make a beautiful spring wreath with faux birds, greenery, and nature elements. #birdwreath #springwreath #naturecrafts #birdcrafts

This spring bird wreath is dedicated to my grandmother, Marian Rose Terry. She was a bird lover who taught me to love birds. I have many memories of watching birds from her kitchen window or while sitting on the back patio at her home in Nebraska, where my sister and I spent our summers and weekdays after school. My grandma always had a bird book nearby, with drawings of all the different species in North America. Her favorites were the robins and cardinals that frequented her yard. 

My grandma, a former kindergarten teacher and mother to eight children, passed away last October, a month before she was to turn 102. She was an amazing lady! My sister had the sweet idea of making little centerpieces of faux birds, moss and sticks for the reception tables after the funeral. I brought the birds home with me afterwards and knew I wanted to make a wreath with them to remind me of my grandma. If you are a fellow "birder", I hope you love this wreath as much as I do!

Woven Popsicle Stick Baskets

Use popsicle sticks and yarn to make these pretty woven baskets. Such a fun kids craft! #yarncrafts #kidscrafts #popsiclestickcrafts #popsiclestickweaving #kidsweaving

Next week is spring break at my daughters' school. It doesn't seem possible, especially since it is currently 28 degrees outside in Texas while I write this! Rather than traveling somewhere during the week off, we are staying home this year. If you too will have some downtime with the kids over spring break, these woven popsicle stick baskets are a fun project to work on together! Read on for my latest kids craft project with Oriental Trading.
