  • Colorful String Easter Eggs

    Tuesday, March 9, 2021 | 10:30-11:30am

    This string Easter egg craft is a fun and simple project that will brighten up your home for a vibrant and long-awaited welcome to spring. A “color-fi lled”, fresh spring décor idea, just in time for Easter. Once the eggs have dried, you can use them to fill glass vases or bowls for the ideal centerpiece, tuck into baskets, make into a garland, or you might want to dangle them from some branches in a vase. The technique used in this craft can be used for pumpkins, ornaments — as well as a variety of seasonal tablescape ideas. It’s a festive way to invite a burst of spring color inside. Now let’s HOP TO IT!

  • Carrot Sugar Scrub

    Tuesday, March 23, 2021 | 10:30-11:30am

    We are all so happy that spring is around the corner. Bright, cheery colors and scents lift us up after a long winter. Carrot sugar scrub bags are perfect for slipping into Easter baskets as well as handing out as party favors to dinner guests. Not only will these carrot-shaped bags of luxurious scrub visually delight the recipient, they will provide a functional shower or bath experience! Body scrubs are great for lifting away dirt and excess oil, stimulating circulation, removing dead skin cells and exfoliation. The simple but beautiful packaging is what really makes this a special spring treat. Here’s to a fresh spring complexion!

  • Michigan Bird Seed Feeders

    Tuesday, April 13, 2021 | 10:30-11:30am

    With spring in the air, we thought what better time to share some love with our “over-wintering” birds. It’s the perfect opportunity to create a fun, useful project and interact with nature. The sun is out, the air is warm and the birds are probably looking for a few snacks. With just a few simple ingredients and a Michigan-shaped cookie cutter (that is yours to take home), you will have trees sprinkled with cute homemade feeders and some very happy feathered friends!

  • Terracotta Citronella Candles

    Tuesday, April 27, 2021 | 10:30-11:30am

    Ah, those lazy, crazy, hazy days of summer are almost here. Fire up the grill, mix up a pitcher of Tom Collins (or whatever it is people are drinking these days) and hit the backyard. This is what summer is all about. Don’t let pesky mosquitoes or bugs ruin your outdoor parties with family and friends. Terracotta citronella “Don’t Bug Me” candles are easy to make and
    will help ensure a bug free zone. And if you like, you can paint them a trendy pattern with watercolors! When you’re done, you can add accessories and give them to friends as a unique summertime gift or keep for yourself.
