DIY Spring Craft Ideas Using Repurposed Items

This time of year is the hardest part of the year for me.  Spring comes to my friends blogs about three months before we ever see it.  It makes the wait much to long and I often find myself getting very blue and impatient waiting.  No fresh tulips or outdoor gardening to enjoy, but these unique DIY Spring decor ideas can be made right now.  Spring can come early for those of you lucky enough to be American, but for us frozen northerners trying a couple of these projects will be a fun way to enjoy what we can while we wait.
