Easy Spring Craft
This easy spring craft is incredibly easy and is a great way to reuse old craft items.
I wanted to make something like a postcard for a spring craft this year and something that also used a previous bird calendar I had been saving.
By using items I already had, I was able to create this fun and easy spring craft.
Let me show you how.

- spring images from scrapbook paper, die cut images or an old calendar
- finished piece of wood
- grey craft paint
- Mod Podge matte
- baker’s twine
1.Mix together one part grey paint and one part water to make a glaze (about 1 tsp of each). Paint on wood piece. Let dry.
2. Cut out paper pieces of birds and/or flowers and brush Mod Podge on the back of the images and press down on the wood piece.
3. Brush on Mod Podge over the entire top of the wood piece.
4. Once dry, tie baker’s twine over the whole piece in a random pattern.
And that’s it! It turned out really cute and it’s an easy craft to pop anywhere you’d like in your home.
I added it to my foyer with other spring/Easter decorating.
It’s a sweet little spring craft that can be used every year. It would make a lovely card for a loved one too.
I hope this has inspired you to make your own easy spring craft.
Make sure to pin it for later!

Oh it’s lovely, Jamie! I love it as part of your spring decorating. All You has such fun inspiration!!
So adorable, Jamie! I love how you wrapped it in Twine! I haven’t checked out All You in a while – I think I’m gonna have to! The coupon is great!
Thanks darling! It’s a great magazine 😉
Jamie, love your ideas and always appreciate your blog. Can you tell me where you found the great piece that you have the eggs hanging on? I need something like that.
Awww thanks Glida. I found it at a local French store where I live here but I’ve seen them online at place like Decor Steals/Antique Farmhouse. It’s called a drying rack if that helps. The one I have is a reproduction but they were originally made to dry wine bottles in Europe. I think if you google “drying rack” “french drying rack” you might find some results. Sorry I couldn’t help out more!
seriously cuteness. 🙂 thank you for the inspiration!
Thanks Jen 😉
I like all the savings I find in All You magazine!
Amazing savings!! 😉
This is so cute, Jamie! Magazines are always such great inspiration! What a lovely addition to your spring decor! Thanks for sharing!
I totally agree, Abby! Thanks so much.
Love your spring craft, it’s SO pretty! And I love All You Magazine too – it’s filled with so much inspiring info!
Thanks Jo-Anna! And I saw your feature in there too! Congratulations!
What a fabulous Easter craft! So tasteful and stylish! I have to check out this new magazine. I did notice the Give-Away os for US residents so lliving in Canada I am not able to enter but that is OK.
Sorry Thea, I know. I live close to the US so I make a lot of trips down there. Thanks so much for your sweet comment!
Love how you took the inspiration and ran with it! And that you were able to use supplies you already had (always a win). It totally has the Jamie touch, too! (Love the baker’s twine.) Brava!
Thanks so much, Lauren! Yes, it’s always awesome when you have craft supplies on hand for a project!
Love it…am looking for a Spring to Summer addition to my wall-scape…This will be perfect!
