What is Seasonal Crafts?
I have never met seasonal crafts I didn’t love! I enjoy doing all kinds of crafting, and teaching others how to create. Here at The Crafty Lily Pad, you’ll find lots of step-by-step seasonal crafts tutorials. Also, you’ll find some inspiration and fun projects as you go through the crafty pages to help you celebrate the seasons through out the year.
How did I get started with my love for Seasonal Crafts?
Back in the day, Friday afternoon art at school was always crafting something seasonal. Moms LOVE these special treasures their kiddos create. I was the kid who LIVED for Friday afternoon art, and yes, my mom still has some of the treasures I crafted. Friday afternoon art was then where my love of seasonal crafts began. I remember creating turkeys out of crab apples for Thanksgiving and nail art flowers with nail polish and yarn for Mother’s Day.
Why do Seasonal Crafts Matter?
Fast Forward to today…..
Pinterest is amazing and life changing because you can find any idea on Pinterest. However, don’t you hate scrolling Pinterest and finding the cutest seasonal crafts, only to click and find yourself at at dead end? Are you looking for one place to find several crafty options? What about your precious time and money?
In my world, seasonal crafts need to check off four requirements:
*Will it be enjoyable and fun to make because who wants to spend time miserable or hours trying to get results?
*Does it serve a purpose and will I be proud to show it off because I created the project?
*Can I make the project fit into my budget?
* How about creating this project in about an hour, maybe 2 at the most? Better yet, how about 30 minutes because time is precious?
