There are craft supplies, then there are must-have craft supplies for Spring. Each season always comes with its own unique crafting ideas and projects, which means there are certain supplies you’ll want to have on hand. Oftentimes, certain supplies are only seasonal and once they’re gone, you won’t be able to get them until the following year. In this post, we’re going to look at some spring-related supplies to have on hand for all your upcoming seasonal projects.
Top Must-Have Craft Supplies for Spring
The supplies mentioned below have long been used to make some pretty amazing spring crafts. The best part about it is every single one of them can be found at the Dollar Tree, meaning you can design on a dime and not break the bank. Grab them while you can!
Colorful Faux Flowers and Greenery
As the flowers change from deep burgundy reds, forest greens, and pearly whites (because of the winter season) to bold and bright pinks, yellows, and blues – you know spring is officially on the way. Flowers you may want to have on hand for spring-themed crafts are:
- Baby’s Breath
- Onion Grass Sprays
- Green Foliage Bushes
In addition to the flower types mentioned above, having a few faux garland strands can come in handy as well. These are all often used to create wreaths, table arrangements, and more.
Mini Terra-Cotta Clay Pots
Both mini and full-sized terracotta clay pots are awesome supplies for making hand-painted pots for flowers, stacked to create unique herbs growing stations, or painted as a Mother’s Day gift. The things you can do with these pots can get pretty creative. I’ve seen them turned into solar light planters and adorable DIY potted plant people! Grab a few packs and stash them to the side.
Metal buckets and planters have a way of adding both a rustic touch and farmhouse feel to any space. Coming in a variety of sizes, you can use them to create unique flower arrangements, hold a bushel of succulents, or place a few rolled-up white towels and a few other toiletries for an upscale bathroom look like this DIY Farmhouse Storage Tub.
With each season also comes a few holidays in the mix. During the spring season, Easter is a popular holiday, which means you can find some unique grapevine wreath forms in the shape of rabbits, eggs, and the like. Beyond that, Dollar Tree has started to up their wire frame stash to include squares, crosses, shamrocks, and different sized circles.
They even have a bicycle wreath form and a tutorial to make your own simple DIY Bicycle Wheel Wreath.
(Unfinished) Wood Crafts
Unfinished wood crafts are another crafters prize supply possession. From laser cut words and themed cutouts (think shapes, animals, etc.) to wooden crates and mini square pallets, there is a lot of spring-themed crafts you can do with these. Using unfinished wood allows for the utmost creativity because you can paint them however you want, use them to embellish projects, and more.
This Trendy Farmhouse DIY Decor uses a variety of wooden crates to make a brown staggered wall or shelf decor or a white sleek farmhouse riser.
Ropes and Burlap Ribbons
Nautical ropes, jute, twine, and burlap ribbons have always said all things spring. Whether they are wrapped around a wreath form, a mason jar, or used to create a planter, this style adds a unique style and touch to any space. Below are a few craft project ideas to consider with these supplies:
Stretched Canvases (White)
Most people think canvases are just for painting, but that’s not the case once the creative juices start flowing. A popular trend is using them to create a reverse canvas project like this Adorable Carrot Sign for Easter. They can be covered in burlap, embellished with faux flowers, and used to create other canvas creations.
These must-have craft supplies for spring will get you ready to create some of the most adorable and unique craft projects.
