Cardboard Tube Spring Bugs

With some cardboard tubes, construction paper, pipecleaners, markers, a glue stick, and tape you can make your own versions of these.

*The firefly you can put a battery operated tealight or glow stick under it behind the yellow tissue paper and watch it glow at night.

*For the butterfly, I traced my daughter’s hands on construction paper to make the wings.

These are so fun to make and truly there is no wrong way to make them, they will look adorable on your table for Spring.

Faux Forsythia Branches Centerpiece

My daughter helped me make these faux Forsythia Branches for our table. I love how it looks inside a clear glass bottle. A Forsythia blooms in early Spring and it’s flowers are commonly seen in a bright yellow color but, can also have pink flowers.

All you need to do for this craft is collect some branches from your yard and use crepe paper to make the “flowers”. Just crumble the crepe paper and attach it to the branch with a glue stick.

An easy craft that makes a beautiful centerpiece on your table.
