Spring isn’t just a time for cleaning. It’s also a great chance to get outside, go hiking and perhaps invest in learning a new skill. Use the boost of energy you get to try out some of these ideas. Don’t worry if you aren’t a crafty kind of person — these ideas can be done by almost everyone.

DIY Flower Pops

Popsicles are a spring and summer treat, and nothing gets less pretty by adding flowers. There’s a huge variety of edible flowers, so this unusual take on a classic treat will definitely get people’s attention. Pick and wash some edible flowers, and drop them into Popsicle molds. Then pour in lemon-lime soda or fruit juice, freeze and serve to the delight of everyone. If you’re feeling ambitious, tie a bow with ribbon onto each stick.

Try Your Hand at Jewelry Making

Jewelry isn’t always about the bling sometimes it’s just about the feeling it evokes. A few small purchases can allow you to craft a huge selection of jewelry items. For the simplest item, you’ll need a stone, wire, leather cord and wire cutters.
