DIY dandelion paperweight

Bring on sunny days, fresh green grass, and fields and fields of brightly colored flowers! I know grown-ups love to hate dandelions (those pesky weeds that take over a grassy knoll if you let them) but kids have just the opposite reaction – and I kind of do too! Rubbing dandelion pollen on your nose, making dandelion chains, and blowing those white seeds into wish fulfillment are all iconic childhood activities. Let’s memoralize our love for these simple yellow blooms with a couple of DIY crafts dedicated just to them.

see tutorial at Canuck Crafts

Some of the credit goes out to Domestifluff, but Canuck Crafts’ flowers are the perfect (and more permanent) dandelion solution! I can see a huge bouquet on my summer dinner table.

How to Make Dandelion GarlandDandelion Chains
see how-to illustration at Oscar Ate My Muffin

I love dandelion chains! I’ve always made mine in a different way, but this tutorial is about to get tested at our house – it looks much sturdier than my traditional method.

Dandelion Dog Necklace

It would also make a darling dog necklace! (I take every opportunity I can to incorporate a puppy picture. And this one is actually relevant!)

Dandelion Gift Wrap made with Q-Tips

see tutorial at The Chic Site

As wonderful as this gift wrap is, I honestly think the flower would be just as cute (maybe even cuter) all by itself! Forget the box underneath, just gather up some cotton swabs and grow your own garden!

DIY Dandelion Pom Pom Pillow

see tutorial at Front + Main

Upgrade your pillow game with a cozy 3D garden! Following this super simple how-to from West Elm’s blog, I’m planning on making one for myself and already know I’ll be petting those little poms every night.

Fingerprint Dandelion Art

see tutorial at Mom It Forward

Ok, finger print art is kind of everywhere, I know. But this one is actually pretty sweet – and by upscaling your usual paper background to raw burlap, it looks much more luxe, as well!
