Spring Crafts for Seniors
Who doesn’t love the springtime? After the chill of winter, the warmer temperatures and blooming flowers of spring can feel like a sigh of relief. Embrace the colors and creativity of the season with these fun spring crafts for seniors.
Sharpie Mug Bird Feeder
One of the best parts of spring is that it’s the time that birds and other wildlife return to our windowsills. Why not welcome them back with a sharpie mug bird feeder? It’s easy to make, and a great gift for the birder in your life.
Easy Lace Vases
Of course, birds aren’t the only thing we’re happy to see return in the spring. If you love seasonal flowers, give them the display they deserve with these beautiful and easy to make lace vases. In just a few minutes, you can turn an old vase or bottle into a piece of art any flower would be proud to call home.
DIY Pressed Flowers
Flowers in a vase can make a lovely centerpiece, but what if you want to keep them after that? Don’t worry, because pressing flowers is one of the easiest ways you can make a craft that’s also a keepsake. You can even use the pressed flowers for future craft projects.
Flower Candle Centerpiece
Speaking of flower crafts, have you ever seen a candle in a store that uses pressed flowers as a decoration? Believe it or not, those candles are actually easy to make at home. All you need is a white pillar candle and some pressed flowers. These candles make great Mother’s Day gifts, too.
One of the best things about spring is the increased sunshine we all get to enjoy. You can make your sunny window a work of art with this easy-to-make suncatcher. Suncatchers are also a great way to use up craft scraps from other projects, like old tissue paper and beads.
Painted Flower Pots
Are you looking for a way to perk up your indoor or outdoor garden? If so, a painted flower pot might be the perfect solution. This tutorial shows you how to use easy art techniques and color combinations to make a beautiful planter in a matter of minutes.
May Day Baskets
Have you ever heard of a May Day basket? These simple paper baskets are filled with flowers, candy, and other treats. All you have to do is roll the paper into a cone, decorate it, tape or glue it shut, and fill it with whatever you like. Leave one on a friend’s doorknob to let them know you’re thinking of them, or send some candy and spring-themed treats to the little ones in your life.
These are just a few of the fun spring crafts for seniors you can find on the internet, but don’t be limited by the ideas here. There are tons of ways you can explore your creative side this spring. Try something new, get messy, and have fun!
