Spring Makeables

I have been busy making cute things to sell at some upcoming spring markets in our area and thought I would share some with you.

A little hanging bird's nest.

I made this bird's nest using old rusty tart pans, a little store bought bird's nest, rusty wire, small tags and eggs cut off an Easter wreath from the dollar store.  I glued the eggs in the nest, fashioned the wire as a hanger and stamped "spring" on the tag. I tied the tag on with some twine and glued it in place.

Decorated jars

I get a lot of my craft supplies off Ebay from China.  I bought 300 little tags for $1 and 200 little metal keys, on the "dream" bottle, for $1.25 all with free shipping.  I like getting things delivered right to my home, so that I have less things to shop for when we do make it to the big city.

Framed keys on burlap background.

Rebekah wood burned garden markers. I hope she doesn't sell them all, because I'd like to buy some.

That is a little sample of the things I've made.

  1. All your crafts are so cute, you do a great job with them. It's so nice that your daughter takes part in the creations and sales also, she does a good job. I'm going to have to order some things from Ebay with those prices, how long does it normally take to receive things from China?

    1. Hi Kelly. It usually takes between 2-4 weeks to get things from China.

  2. Hi Crystal! I think I'm in love with your sweet little nests in the pie tins. They look fabulous :) Thanks so much for linking up with Vintage Charm!
