Gail from Purple Hues and Me came across a really cute outdoor pillow loaded with colorful flowers. At $49, it may have been out of Gail’s budget but that didn’t mean she couldn’t recreate it and get a similar look for less. Gail says, “I wanted to make a no-sew whimsical flower pillow anyone could do just by using fabric, ribbon, and glue. The end result is truly stunning, and the flowers are quite easy to make after some practice.”

Then it hit her … 8th grade science class… Erlenmeyer Flasks! Katie purchased two ‘variety’ packs off Amazon for $6.99 each, spray painted them some fun, spring colors, and now they’re the perfect accessory for her home!

While more snow may be on the way, we have finally seen some glimpses of spring-like weather lately. Debbie from Confessions of a Plate Addict was enjoying temps near 70 degrees when she was inspired to create burlap wrapped planters for some daffodils she scored at Wal-mart for a dollar. It was as easy as wrapping a remnant of burlap around a glass cylinder and then tying it with jute twine. This is one of those super easy projects that we all love!
