We’ve finally climbed out of the bone-chilling winter temperatures (and only a month into spring! #whydoilivehere?), so it’s definitely time to celebrate! It’s time to open the windows, enjoy some fresh air, and take walks without a coat (sweaters still required). And it’s definitely time to bring some spring life into our homes. Here in Edmonton, garden centres and greenhouses have been declared essential services during this pandemic(#agree), so I’m so excited that we will be able to get some plants since I didn’t start any seeds this year. There’s still some time, so I might still get to it. Maybe tomorrow afternoon…
Anyway, let’s bring some spring indoors! We still have some chilly evenings ahead and since we’re hunkered down so much, we have some time to freshen up our indoors with some lovely handmade spring decor! Check out these patterns to get making today!

Bring some homey-ness to your plants with a Crochet Planter Pattern. Warm up your plants and add some cohesiveness to your home decor. I know I have a bunch of mis-matched planters around my house, so wrapping them all up in a matching set of crocheted planters like this would be perfect!
Spring is the perfect time to try embroidery! There are so many wonderful, springy embroidery patterns to check out, including this Beginner Floral Embroidery Pattern. Small crafts like this are so portable, perfect for sitting on the deck and enjoying the fresh air while relaxing with a new craft!
I also love this Dandelion Hand Embroidery Pattern. Modern and pretty, this pattern looks like it would be easy to accomplish and I love that it would work so nicely on a dark background. It really makes the light colours pop!
I’m so sorry I didn’t find this Easter Bunny Gnome Crochet Pattern before Easter for you all (and for me too!) I love gnomes! I just think they’re soooooo cute! I love the whimsical bunny ears coming from his hat (let’s not imagine anatomy, ok?) So cute… and it’s a perfect time to get a jump on next Easter.
If there’s a baby due this spring, this Spring into Summer Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern is the perfect, simple crochet pattern if you’ve ever wanted to try corner to corner crochet. It looks lovely made in this multi-coloured yarn!
This is the perfect time to make a Hello Spring Crochet Pillow! Crochet pillow covers are so fun and great to swap out during the year for seasonal changes to your living room. These patterns are adorable and customizable so it will always match your decor! Make those flowers in whatever colour you like!
I love wreaths! And what better time than spring to bring in a Knitted Flower Wreath Pattern into your decor! Check out these cute knitted flowers and leaves. They look gorgeous on this vine wreath. I probably wouldn’t hang this outdoors, as I don’t think the yarn would hold up to the elements very well, but it is a lovely way to bring a hint of spring into your home!
I know I usually focus on fibre arts here, but there are so many crafts worth trying. This French Beaded Crocus Pattern is a beautiful introduction into bead-work. What a lovely looking project to try! Have you ever tried beading like this? So neat!
What better way to breathe life into your home than making one of these Trinity Macrame Plant Hanger Pattern to hang your plants. This is definitely a 70’s throwback, but macrame is vintage and very trendy right now. So many fun ways to hang plants! I remember doing macrame in Girl Guides when I was a child. And I also made a lot of friendship bracelets in my early twenties, which uses some of the same knot techniques used in macrame.
I love this modern take on macrame. And I might even be able to find a place for this Macrame Planter Hanger Pattern for the wall… maybe in my bathroom upstairs… Or perhaps in the bathroom down here when we get around to doing that.
There are so many other lovely DIY patterns and supplies featured in this Etsy Editor’s Picks as well. Totally worth checking out if you’re looking for some new crafting inspiration!
