I love bringing happy spring colors into my home! I feel like I can’t get enough color after I have endured a dreary Utah winter. These whimsical wooden spool flowers were a fun spring craft to create, and an adorable addition to my decor.
- Dot Paper in -Dark Pink, Purple, Teal, Yellow, Light Green
- Darice Wood Spools (3)
- Darice Wooden Dowel Rod (2)
- Darice Wood Daisy Shape (3)
- Darice Wood Circles (3)
- Darice Baker’s Twine Tropical Mix (Or other colors of your choice)
- Mod Podge Matte Jar
- Darice Green Paper Shred
- FolkArt Lime Green Acrylic Paint
Let’s get started on this fun spring craft! Prepare your wooden items. I chose to paint my dowel “stems” green, and stain my wooden spools. Set aside to dry.
Add your selected patterned papers to cover the flowers and circles. Smooth the paper out, and allow the Mod Podge to dry thoroughly. When the items are dry, trim the paper as close to the edge as you can.
Finish the Mod Podged items by sanding the edges to get clean lines.
When all of your wooden flowers are finished, set them aside.
Wrap the spools with baker’s twine in colors of your choice.
From green patterned paper, cut two leaves per flower. Adhere the leaves to the bottom of the dowel.
