After months of dreary winter weather, it finally feels like spring is on the way! We’ve had a few days of 60° weather and gorgeous sunshine to break up our usual cloudy gloom, and early blooming flowers like daffodils and forsythia are dotting the countryside with color. The bulbs we planted last fall around our cherry trees are starting to poke up green leaves and tightly furled buds, and even a few grape hyacinths have started to pop. Second only to the return of the sun, I think beautiful, blooming flowers are one of my favorite parts of the spring season. Ranunculus and anemones are some of my favorite flowers, and our ranunculus plants and anemone bulbs are bringing a much-needed burst of brilliant color to our yard right now—golden yellows, deep purples, bright scarlets, and shocking, electric pinks. I can’t wait for peony and sweet pea season to be here in just a few short months, and for roses and dahlias to fill the garden all summer long. I can never get enough flowers!
In the meantime, I’ve brought some of my favorite spring flowers into my office thanks to the gorgeous silk flowers from JOANN. I’m always impressed with how realistic and beautiful their silk flowers look, and I love how their stock changes with the season. Right now, they have beautiful spring and early summer flowers just like you’d find at your local florist. On my latest trip to JOANN, I found amazing faux peonies in shades of pink and coral, bright pink ranunculus, and darling, miniature coral pom pom mums.
After spending a few days brainstorming fun projects to make with my flowers, I decided to use them to make a set of quick and easy DIY Spring Flower Magnets. They were a fun afternoon project, and my magnet board has never looked better! They add the perfect beautiful, botanical touch to my office along with some eye-catching color, and they’re so easy to make, that I can switch them out for a set of summer flowers, fall flowers, or winter flowers as the season warrants.
These cute flower magnets would be a great rainy day project or something fun to work on at a friends crafting night. With a grown-up’s help and supervision, they’d even be a fun weekend project for kids as well. You can pick whatever color flowers you want to match your office, kitchen, or bedroom decor, and they require just a few materials and less than an hour of time. I’m so happy with how mine turned out, and can’t wait to find more photos, postcards, and inspirational quotes to hang up with them. They make the corner of my office look happy, cheerful, and ready for Spring.
