Need a little Spring? Here ya go....

I'm a little under the weather today, and needing something cheerful to look at while the children play outside. This is what I came up with... Just a little happiness for the table. If you want to make your own see below....
:: I just cut out some leafs from fabric scraps.
(You can find the free template HERE on my tutorial page. Scan down to the bottom of the page and you will see it.)
:: Hot glued them right onto this little branch.
:: Added three (already made) crochet flowers. (If you don't have any see below)
:: And displayed it on the table along with some of this weeks findings....lovely rocks.
If you don't have crochet flowers just laying around (like some of us crochet freaks) you could use yo-yos with a button glued in the middle, fabric flower shapes cut out and layered. Flower yo-yos would be cute too. Or you could whip up the crochet ones using this tutorial. (or you could just skip the flowers....) I'm thinking this could even be a cute little Valentines gift idea for Nana and Gran..... Have a lovely day friends!

I was thinking "too bad I can't crochet" and then I remember this garland/ribbon I bought a loooong time ago. It is actually made of little crochet flowers. Now I know what I can do with it! Thanks for the inspiration.
